Hitachi Develops Crowd-Navigating Robot
 

Tokyo, Sept 12, 2006 (JCN) - Hitachi Ltd., in collaboration with Tsukuba University, has developed the Excellent Mobility and Interactive Existance as Workmate (EMIEW) robot, which can walk between people without bumping into them and navigate crowded places.

The robot moves at at 0.8m per second and uses a laser sensor to detect the distance of obstacles. During trials, the robot smoothly passed four people walking at speeds of up to 1.2m per second.

The EMIEW robot will be demonstrated at the International Federation of Automotive Engineering Societies (FISITA) 2006 World Automotive Congress, beginning October 23 in Yokohama, Japan.
