Toyota’s Humanoid Marathoner Robot: Marathon Robot
Call it an android, a robot or a humanoid, the latest in technology of the robotic world, are definitely weirder than their names. While the Sony QRIO, so called to say Quest for CuRIOsity, originally launched as SDR – sony dream robot and the Honda ASIMO (Advanced step in innovative mobility) have apt names, the Toyota’s humanoid robot are being called their partner robots for working in areas of personal assistance.
