Tokyo 2020 unveils Games robots

Baku, March 16, AZERTAC

The Organizing Committee of the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 (Tokyo 2020) announced the launch of its new Tokyo 2020 robot project - one of programmes aimed at ensuring that these games will be the most innovative ever and providing visiting fans with an experience they are unlikely to forget.

The Human Support Robot and Delivery Support Robot developed by Toyota Motor Corporation will allow all spectators to enjoy watching the Tokyo 2020 Games in greater comfort. The robots will provide assistance to spectators in wheelchairs at the Olympic Stadium by carrying food and other goods, guiding people to their seats, and providing event information.

Other robots will perform a number of additional duties during the Games, details of which will be announced later. Overall, robot technology will help deliver safer and smoother Games, and while the robots will be deployed only in specific roles during the Games, the project is expected to showcase their potential for wider application in everyday life.
