Toyota’s latest robotics platform designed and developed by Toyota’s Partner Robot Division, will explore new technologies for safely managing physical interactions between robots and their surroundings, as well as a new remote maneuvering system that mirrors user movements to the robot.

T-HR3 reflects Toyota’s broad-based exploration of how advanced technologies can help to meet people’s unique mobility needs.

T-HR3 represents an evolution from previous generation instrument-playing humanoid robots, which were created to test the precise positioning of joints and pre-programmed movements, to a platform with capabilities that can safely assist humans in a variety of settings, such as the home, medical facilities, construction sites, disaster-stricken areas and even outer space.

T-HR3 is controlled from a Master Maneuvering System that allows the entire body of the robot to be operated instinctively with wearable controls that map hand, arm and foot movements to the robot, and a head-mounted display that allows the user to see from the robot’s perspective.

The system’s master arms give the operator full range of motion of the robot’s corresponding joints and the master foot allows the operator to walk in place in the chair to move the robot forward or laterally.

The Self-interference Prevention Technology embedded in T-HR3 operates automatically to ensure the robot and user does not disrupt each other’s movements.

Onboard T-HR3 and the Master Maneuvering System, motors, reduction gears and torque sensors (collectively called Torque Servo Modules) are connected to each joint.

2018 Toyota Prius Gets Slight Price Hike

  2018 Toyota Prius Gets Slight Price Hike The Toyota Prius hums into 2018 with just one change. That's to the price. It's going up slightly this year. The Prius was an all-new design just two model-years ago, so it doesn't get any big changes yet. It continues on with the 1.8L four-cylinder and Toyota hybrid system that earn it a 4.4 L/100 km city fuel economy rating. All Prius models are well equipped, with even the base car getting Toyota's Safety Sense P. That adds radar cruise, automatic high beams, and emergency braking. It also has heated seats and a 6.1-inch display audio touch screen. The price is going up this year, slightly. By $425 for the base model, bringing it to $27,480. The fully loaded Prius Technology with Advanced Package is now $32,795, up from $32,365 last year. All trims see a change of around $430. The 2018 Toyota Prius is on sale now.

Toyota Motor Corporation Site introduces Partner Robot . As part of its commitment to Enriching Lives of Communities, Toyota has embraced the development of partner robots as a new challenge that takes advantage of our automotive and industrial robot manufacturing technology.

These modules communicate the operator’s movements directly to T-HR3’s 29 body parts and the Master Maneuvering System’s 16 master control systems for a smooth, synchronized user experience.

The Torque Servo Module enables T-HR3’s core capabilities: Flexible Joint Control, to control the force of contact the robot makes with any individuals or objects in its surrounding environment; Whole-body Coordination and Balance Control, to maintain the robot’s balance if it collides with objects in its environment; and Real Remote Maneuvering, to give users seamless and intuitive control over the robot.

These functions have broad implications for future robotics research and development, especially for robots that operate in environments where they must safely and precisely interact with their surroundings.
