World-first practical avatar platform, completed a field-ready model capable of remote operation with ultra-low latency
Publication/Creation DateMay 30 2018
DescriptionMELTIN MMI (Head office: Shinjuku, Tokyo, CEO: Masahiro Kasuya, hereinafter MELTIN) has developed a real-world model of the world’s first practical avatar robot platform, which allows for remote-control communications at ultra-low latency, through joint research with aptpod Inc. (Head office: Shinjuku, Tokyo, CEO: Junichi Sakamoto, hereinafter aptpod).
MELTIN aims to transcend the limitations of physical bodies through its development of cyborg technologies designed to unleash the creativity of human beings. The first step in this process was its development of a practical myoelectric prosthesis. This prosthesis included cyborg technologies that allowed for processing of bio-signals to faithfully replicate the movements of the body and technologies to limit its robotic mechanisms.
The MELTANT-α could be used in a variety of situations including for remote work, dangerous or extreme environments (disaster areas, high temperature, high altitude, chemical exposure, etc.), tourism and entertainment, agricultural or food industries (logistics and research), medical care - any industry that requires remote access.
