Tokyo Olympics to feature robotics, innovative technology


Tokyo’s Olympics may become known as the “Robot Games.” Organizers think the 2020 Summer Games are a good place to show off Japanese robot technology.

Robots made by Toyota will be used to provide assistance for fans using wheelchairs at the new National Stadium. Panasonic Corp. will utilize its “power assist suit.” The suit offers support to the back and hip area and allows for heavy objects to be lifted with less effort.
