Tokyo 2020 Mascot-type Robots
The Miraitowa Robot and Someity Robot will welcome athletes and spectators at Games venues and other Games-related locations with human-like movements such as bowing and waving, and with a variety of facial expressions. Cameras mounted on the robots’ foreheads will allow them to recognise people nearby and to react to them, as well as to transmit images to remotely located robots. The Tokyo 2020 Organising Committee and Toyota are additionally discussing a number of ways for the robots to make it easier and more enjoyable for children to experience the Games.
