The bio-mimetic control research center of RIKEN is promoting basic research on the flexible and dynamic motor functions of biological systems.
The goal is to create advanced engineering systems such as a soft human interactive robot.
The robot developed here is named RI-MAN. RI-MAN exhibits the skill and ability to realize human care and welfare tasks. RI-MAN will become an invaluable partner robot. http://www.bmc.riken.jp/
