Toyota has taken the wraps off its new humanoid robot in the form of the Toyota T-HR3 robot which will be unveiled and demonstrated as part of the DOCOMO Open House 2018 which will be held at Tokyo Big Sight over two days starting from December 6th, 2018. Check out the demonstration teaser video below to learn more about the latest humanoid robot created by the Toyota Motor Corporation and DOCOMO.
DOCOMO is one of Japan’s leading mobile operators and is marketed as one of the world’s foremost contributors to 3G, 4G and 5G mobile network technologies. “Toyota developed the T-HR3 with the aim of creating a partner robot that can safely support human activities in a variety of circumstances, such as homes and healthcare institutions. By employing Torque Servo Modules that control torque (power) and a Master Maneuvering System that allows the robot’s entire body to be operated at will, the operator can feel external forces exerted on the T-HR3 and prompt it to move in the same manner as them.”
“To ensure it achieves gentle, smooth movement, minimizing communication delays during control signal exchange between the T-HR3 and the Master Maneuvering System is essential. Until now, T-HR3 experiments have been conducted on a wired connection, with relatively few communication delays. This time, with an eye toward improved use in practical environments, the T-HR3 was successfully controlled wirelessly, using low-latency 5G communication technology developed by DOCOMO.”
