Research Platform

The humanoid research platform can be applied to cutting-edge research and development by linking with various
types of software ande devices that support ROS.

The history of Kawada Robotics' humanoid robot development began in 1999,
when we were commissioned by the University of Tokyo to develop a humanoid robot.

From that time, we have expanded our robot lineup from the bipedal robots,
the "upper body" type humanoid "HIRO", to the "NEXTAGE" series.

We have developed the "NEXTAGE OPEN" series of research platforms compatible
with open-source robot middleware (ROS) to meet the many requests
we have received from universities and research institutes around the world.
