A joint exhibition by Kitami Institute of Technology (Hokkaido), Kyushu Institute of Technology (Fukuoka Prefecture), National Science Museum, and National Literature Research Museum has started at the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology Museum "Information Plaza" in Kasumigaseki, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo.Road freeze sensors for snow and ice measures, RoboCup soccer robots, whole body skeleton specimens of dinosaurs, reproductions of Genji Monogatari Emaki, etc. are exhibited, and it is crowded with parents and children during the summer vacation.The exhibition is until the end of November.free entrance.
In the corner of Kitami Institute of Technology, the exhibition name is "Challenge from Cold Region Engineering-Toward the Mitigation of Snow and Ice Mysteries and Snow and Ice Disasters".Since we are investigating and researching the phenomena of cold regions caused by snow and ice from the viewpoint of disaster prevention and mitigation, we have introduced a road surface freeze sensor that automatically determines the road surface condition, a tablet textbook that summarizes measures against ice and snow on power transmission lines, and electricity. An exhibit of power distribution insulators for safe supply.The video introduces the elucidation of climate change through transmission line icing phenomena and observation of sea ice in polar regions.
The theme of the exhibition at Kyushu Institute of Technology is "8 consecutive victories in the medium-sized soccer league at the RoboCup Japan Tournament-Robot Technology at Kyushu Institute of Technology, which is drawing attention at competitions".The actual robots that have won the RoboCup Japan Tournament Soccer Medium-sized League for eight consecutive years and participated in the world tournament are exhibited, and the outline of the robot is explained on many panels.
The corner of the National Science Museum is entitled "Dinosaur Research-The Mystery of Evolution Unraveling from Fossils-" and exhibits a whole-body skeletal specimen (replica) and commentary panel of Pachycephalosaurus that inhabited the North American continent in the late Cretaceous.
In the corner of the National Institute of Japanese Literature, under the theme of "Our hero was born from a classic !!", in addition to the Genji Monogatari Emaki, "Jiraiya Goketsutan", the origin of the anime "NARUTO", is exhibited.
* Insulator A solid insulator provided to insulate a transmission line and a steel tower.
* RoboCup A competition with a self-sustaining mobile robot that moves by thinking, not a robot that moves by human operation like a radio-controlled model.
* Pachycephalosaurus A representative of stone-headed dinosaurs with a 4-8 meter long and 25-30 cm thick dense bone dome on the crown.
