Kindergarten Size Robot Interacts With Humans (Video)

In addition to the two smaller, dare we say 'younger' infant robots we covered in our earlier post, the Asada Synergistic Intelligence Project team also demonstrated “M3–Kindy”, approximately the size of a five year old.

To emulate the motions, sensing, perception, and interaction of a kindergarten age child, the robot was equipped with microphone ears, video camera eyes, and over 100 tactile sensors as well as 42 servos.
