Open Lab

Can an autonomous robot reach its destination without bumping into people?

Research Period:since September 2016

Can robots smoothly reach their destination in a bustling area? Without further ado, you can now take part in an experiment with “Peacock,“ a robot currently under development.

Peacock has sensors to detect obstacles and the movement of people in its vicinity. By walking around Peacock, you can contribute to the collection of research data and improve Peacock’s external perception.

Get a close-up view of Peacock moving around in the Exhibition Area for the trial and experience cutting-edge robot research for yourself.

* This event involves trials of the Intelligent Systems Project in the Research Facilities. They have been held monthly since September 2016.
