Specialized Products, Technologies and Services
Humanoid robot hand + arm
Endowed with the same size and motion (hand: 15 DOF; arm: 7 DOF) as a human being. The electrical system is also internal and can be used for university student research equipment. The picture is from a demonstration at the international SIGGRAPH 2006 conference held in the United States.
TELESAR remote control humanoid robot
The concept of "telexistence" advocated by the University of Tokyo professor Susumu Tachi is a process in which the operator remotely controls a humanoid robot as if he were inside the robot itself. We gave our high performance robot, perfect for this concept, the name TELESAR, and it has been employed for this purpose. The picture is of a demonstration at the International Robot Exhibition 2011.
Robot arm for assisting the independence of senior citizens and the disabled
A device that can be easily operated by senior citizens and the disabled for assisting in light work, such as eating and drinking. With the goal of a global release, patents are being obtained for this product in Japan, the United States, China, and Europe.
