The Toyota Research Institute (TRI) has been working tirelessly on the development of new human-assist robots. These robots will be designed to help humans with basic daily tasks such as cleaning, folding laundry, and putting away groceries. The advancements Toyota plans on making with these new robots could revolutionize convenience and independence in humanity.
The TRI has been developing a robot specifically built for loading a dishwasher. Using stereo-cameras placed around the sink, the robot can develop a deep algorithm which enables it to identify the objects in the sink and if they must be loaded into the dishwasher.
The possibilities offered by the existence of human-assist robots are endless. Advancements like this can make things much easier on the elderly or the disabled, who can enjoy greater independence in their daily routines.
Toyota is taking painstaking measures to certify that its robots are as accurate and safe as possible. With enough progress and development, the TRI is hoping this technology can soon be applied in the field of self-driving cars.
