By uniting the accumulated technology of industrial robots, automotive control technology and the latest information technology, they developed a biped robot that played an instrument and a future conceptual vehicle, among other robots. A mobility performance show highlighted the potential of the associated robots.

Problem resolution
Robots will live and work more closely with people, from the care of health and nursing to the home.

Toyota is working to offer associated robots that enrich the lives of people by using the commitment of advanced technology as a mobility company.

Creation of new value
The associated robots will continue to evolve to help achieve a more satisfying future by working with and on behalf of people.
Toyota’s development of associated robots continues to accelerate. It is expected that these devices bring innovation to a variety of industries and fields. A new and satisfying future that exceeds the imagination is dawning, based on the new values ​​created by the partner robots.
