As a worldwide partner of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, Toyota in Japan aims to provide mobility solutions that go beyond providing official vehicles for the Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020. The robots, to be introduced by Toyota at Tokyo 2020, will be used to support the mobility of people at various locations and venues.
Tokyo 2020 Mascot Robot Miraitowa
The mascot robot will both allow expressions of arm movements via a remote-location robot, and share force-feedback from interactions. Via a camera mounted on the robot’s head, it can recognize people nearby, and once recognized, use its eyes to respond with/show a variety of expressions. By equipping the robot with miniature joint units across its entire body, the robot offers flexibility when being controlled.
