Toyota participates in the "Tokyo 2020 Robot Project" for the Olympic Games
Toyota, as a worldwide partner of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, aims to provide mobility solutions that go beyond providing official vehicles for the Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020.
One way Toyota is doing this is by participating in the "Tokyo 2020 Robot Project", a project led by the Tokyo Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (Tokyo 2020) that brings the government, Tokyo Metropolitan government, as well as Games' partners together with experts in the field of robotics.
At Tokyo 2020, the robots to be introduced by Toyota will be used to support the mobility of people at various locations and venues. By helping people feel and experience their hopes and dreams, Toyota believes it will be able to further contribute to the excitement and success of the Tokyo 2020 Games.
Nobuhiko Koga, Chief Officer of Toyota's Frontier Research Center, said: «Now, as we transform into a mobility company, we are expanding our robotics efforts to provide all people with the freedom to move. Mobility for all is not only the physical movement of a person or thing from one location to another, but also includes virtual mobility of a person».
