HRP-5P is an advanced humanoid capable of using power tools and handling large objects like drywall sheets. It's the latest model in the HRP series of Japanese humanoids, and is designed as an R&D platform.
Did you know?
This is the fifth generation model in the HRP series of Japanese humanoid robots.
After HRP-1, HRP-2, HRP-3, HRP-4, and HRP-4C, Japan's National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) introduced HRP-5P in 2018. HRP-5P stands out from previous models in the HRP series of robots because it's much stronger and more autonomous. In a demonstration, the robot locates, lifts, and carries a large drywall panel on its own. The AIST team, led by Fumio Kanehiro, say HRP-5P is designed to "autonomously perform heavy labor or work in hazardous environments." They plan to use the robot as an R&D platform for practical application of humanoids in both research labs and industry.
Able to carry about 13 kilograms of payload. Designed to operate autonomously and perform heavy labor in hazardous environments. Equipped with environmental sensors and object recognition, full-body motion planning and control, and task description and execution management.
