“The Science of Walking” through a researchers eye! User Study in the real world


Where do we look when we are walking? Scientists from Honda Research Institute Europe (HRI-EU) want to answer this question and carry out data recordings in the area of the railway station Obertshausen between Feb. 22, 2021 and Mar 31, 2021. The goal is to develop a better understanding of human walk and gaze behavior that will be used to improve robotic motion assist devices.

Honda Communication Assistance System using HRI-JP technology launched!


Technology exists to serve people! As this is Honda’s R&D philosophy, we are pleased to see the AI voice recognition system, developed by Honda Research Institute Japan, is used in the new Honda Communication Assistance System for a smooth inclusion of hearing impaired associates at the worksite.
Communication and fruitful discussions are essential for efficient research. But what happens if your colleague is hearing impaired and the exchange of ideas is difficult?
