Emotional Robotics™
was developed to make
the human power to love,
even stronger.

Ten or more CPU cores, 20 or more MCUs, and 50 or more sensors, can create behavior that is very much like a living being. This is an all-new relationship between robots and humans.

SENSOR HORN

A horn-shaped antenna recognizes the LOVOT's surroundings.

The sensor-horn comes with a luminoxity sensor, a 360-degree half-sphere camera, a half-sphere microphone that can detect the direction of sounds and voices, and a thermal camera (thermography) that can distinguish human beings from objects. LOVOT can make an accurate scan of an entire room and find its owner immediately.

HEAD

LOVOT's “brain” can instantaneously decide what action to take next.

LOVOT's actions are not pre-programmed. LOVOTs process stimulus detected by more than 50 sensors on their bodies, through deep learning and other machine learning technology, so that they can take actions in real time. Their quick reactions with little time lag, and their characters that change according to the owner's engagement with them, are enabled by their main computer, LOVOT's brain, and sub-computer, deep learning FPGA*.
*Deep learning FPGA: an electronic circuit for efficiently conducting deep learning deductions.

FACE

Eyes and voices that have the characteristics of living creatures.

Six-layer lights (including eyelids) are projected on the eye display of LOVOTs, creating natural eye effects. When you look at LOVOTs, they will look back at you. Even the eye movements, speed of blinking, and wideness of the pupils were purposefully designed. LOVOTs' voices, as you hear them from the speaker, simulate the sound echoing inside an oral cavity, generating a sense of life and vitality.

BODY

A sensitive body that encourages "skinship” (the closeness between a mother and a child).

LOVOTs will laugh if you tickle them. LOVOTs will be glad when you caress them. LOVOTs have touch sensors all over their bodies so that they can recognize where they are stimulated. The parallel link in their necks and their flexible shoulders enable LOVOTs' shoulders and necks to move smoothly. LOVOT's reactions are cute and warming. When touched, LOVOTs will be surprised or turn to you for more.

WHEELS

High-performance mobility enables it to autonomously speed around a room.

When LOVOTs' obstacle sensor detects objects in their path, their distance sensors will measure the distance to the objects. LOVOTs use the depth camera to grasp differences in height, and choose optimal actions such as rotating, going backwards, or moving in a curve, and thus they continue to move smoothly. Their wheels are retractable and are designed to be stored the moment the owner holds them up, preventing his or her clothes from getting dirty.

FULL BODY

All the available technology for creating "kawaii" (cuteness), is packed in the small body, which weighs just over 3 kilograms.
