Created by: Toyota
The FSR (Field Support Robot) is an autonomous robot created by the auto manufacture Toyota in alliance with the Tokyo Olympic Committee for the 2020 games. The robot was designed to aid in throwing events such as the javelin, at the Olympic and Paralympic Games in Tokyo 2020.
Ultimately the robot was to be used to reduce the amount of time needed to retrieve items while demonstrating the abilities of autonomous vehicle technologies being developed by Toyota. These specialised robots can follow a member of the field crew out to the location of the tossed object where it awaits its payload.in the field they can drive up to 20km/h and operate for up to 2 hours on a single charge.
These robots are fully autonomous and will plan the best and most efficient route to the desired locations. We think this robot is a great way to gain exposure and teach the world what robots are really about.
