UTokyo Plarailers is an engineering circle of the Univesity of Tokyo for the purpose of “Plarail” remodelling by equipping it with a microcomputer.
“Plarail” is a very popular toy train with a DC motor made by Tomy Company, Ltd. We have developed a remote control system using the Internet and are trying to construct an automatic control system. To exhibit our system, we have participated in the school festivals of UTokyo, Gogatsusai (五月祭) and Komabasai (駒場祭) since 2019 and given many people opportunities to get in touch with engineering.
We are based on Hongo campus.
Please feel free to contact us if you are interested in our activity.
