Toyota's two new research and development locations are opening this month in Cambridge, MA and Silicon Valley, CA.
The Human Support Robot (HSR) demonstrated above is an example of the types of projects we can expect to see come out of the Toyota Research Institute. Their primary goals are to develop robotics and artificial intelligence to improve driving accessibility, and implement mobility solutions for the home, as well.
HSR's function is simple: it picks things up, and puts them back down again. This ability could be of great assistance to seniors and people with disabilities who
