Toyota Mobility Robot

Toyota's "Mobility Robot", TMR, was developed with main focus on supporting short-range personal transportation. TMR can stably negotiate steps and slopes and is equipped with an autonomous transportation function for indoor use and with a tracking function so that the robot can follow the user. TMR has a traveling range of 20 km on a one hour charge, can reach a top speed of 6 km/hr, and can climb slopes of up to ten degrees. Weight 150 kg, 100 cm tall when stopped for boarding or alighting and 110 cm tall when in motion. Toyota plans to conduct practical application testing at relevant Toyota facilities beginning in the latter half of 2008.
