Partner Robot, as its name suggests, is a robot that assists people with a combination of caring and intelligence.
Toyota has been working to develop commercially viable "partner robot" by building on its expertise in the field of industrial robotics and applying cutting-edge technology from areas such as the automotive industry and IT. Remaining loyal to the philosophy of Sakichi Toyoda and Kiichiro Toyoda, which is to "contribute to the world and to people by enriching society through manufacturing".
Possessing human characteristics, the Personal Assist Robot is one of Toyota's Partner Robot. They are agile, warm, kind and also intelligent enough to think for themselves, and further skillfully operate a variety of devices in the areas of personal assistance care for the elderly, manufacturing, and mobility.
In the future, we hope the Personal Assist Robot can become trusted partners through assisting in nursing and medical care at hospitals, looking after patients and seniors at care centers, and supporting domestic duties.
