Toyota tech helping a veteran
Toyota has created a Human Support Robot (HSR) that helps people with their everyday activities. This robot acts as a partner to their human and assists them with opening doors and bringing them snacks and bottles of water. The first in-home trial of this Toyota tech robot is currently in Daytona, Florida with a decorated U.S. war veteran who was paralyzed from the neck down in Afghanistan, Romulo (Romy) Camargo. Toyota’s goal in creating these robots is to help improve people’s quality of life and help them gain some of their independence back. They plan to show the HSR at the NASCAR Coke 400 pre-race in Daytona, Florida. This event will honor U.S. veterans. Some of Toyota’s other research projects that are meant to help people include:
- Welwalk WW-1000
This is a robotic leg brace can be worn by someone who’s partially paralyzed and can assist them with walking.
- Project BLAID
A mobility technology that can assist people that are blind or have visual impairments by making them more aware of their surroundings.
- Transfer Assist Robot
This robot helps adult caregivers out by easily transferring people from beds to chairs and from chairs to toilets.
- Auto Access Seat
