Collaborative efforts of the University of Tokyo, JSK Laboratory, and Kawada Industries brought forth H7, a humanoid robot. It is being used as a research platform for walking, autonomous behavior, and human interaction.
H7 was primarily designed to be a human-sized robot capable of autonomously performing in indoor environments designed for humans. The creators of this experimental robotics test considered key design components, such as the full-size body of the robot with sufficient degrees of freedom, as the primary contributors in making it a success in its field.
Other key design components of H7 include dynamic walking trajectory generation, three-dimensional vision functions, and motion planning.
