Toyota has just announced its own humanoid robot, the T-HR3.

It boasts of some smooth and precise movements. In contrast to Atlas, however, it is also designed to attract humans and not scare them off. The main focus of the T-HR3 is actually what Toyota dubs as the Master Maneuvering System. In a nutshell, it lets an operator control the robot remotely by sitting on a platform, donning half an exoskeleton, and a headset. This allows the human operator control of nearly every robot limb while seeing what the T-HR3 sees through the headset. Many of Toyota’s technologies, like the Torque Servo Module, Flexible Joint Control, and Self-interference Prevention, all work in harmony to make the robot move more naturally, precisely, and gracefully.
