Twendy-One is designed to offer assistance to the elderly and disabled. Using its innovative harmonic drive motor, Twendy-One is able to lift 35 kilograms (77 pounds). The highly dexterous hands and inductive passive control system ensure it doesn’t impact a person or object hard enough to harm them. In order to manoeuvre around bends, Twendy-One rolls around on an omnidirectional wheel-based drive system. The torso also has 12 ultrasonic sensors and padded silicone skin. This robot is designed to look after vulnerable people, so it has a sculpted, curved body and head to appear more friendly.
