“Humanoid robots with advanced functionality”
The morph project was started in April 2001 to research and develop element technologies for humanoid robots, technologies to integrate the element technologies, and autonomous control systems for motions of the entire body. The morph3 system aims to be a metal athlete in pursuit of extreme functionality like a lean and mean athlete with no fat. The mechanisms and the body have been designed as an integrated system, which results in excellent functionality (advanced recognition functions and mobility), maintainability, and a friendly look.
The morph1 and morph2 were developed in the JST Kitano Symbiotic Systems Project, and the morph3 was jointly developed by the JST Kitano Symbiotic Systems Project and Dr. Shunji Yamanaka, an industrial designer. The morph3 R＆D team moved to CIT established fuRo in 2003.
