Electronic assistants HSR (Human Support Robot) in Toyota created a few years ago. These robots are equipped with manipulators and can move quite quickly, focusing on the special label in the space. Therefore, they are already used in some hospitals in Japan, but recently one of these robots has been appropriately modified, and then moved into the house of Romulo Karmago, paralyzed from the neck down veteran who has been seriously wounded in Afghanistan.
Due to the fact that Romulo almost completely paralyzed, it is difficult to perform even the most mundane activities, so in domestic affairs it helps HSR robot that can zadornut curtains, bring the water, turn on the lights or open the door. Romulo gives the robot commands with the stylus - it keeps him in the mouth, thus pushing it to the desired item, mapped on the display of the tablet, which equipped it with a chair.
Two years ago, Toyota has established a new division, which will deal with the development of artificial intelligence and robots. Probably soon HSR will be replaced by other, more advanced models.
