HRP-2M-Choromet-robot

HRP-2m Choromet robot is a highly advanced and efficient robot when compared with other robots in the market. Priced at 498,750 yen it was developed by General Robotix Inc. and Moving Eye Inc. Currently the sales are restricted to Japan. HRP-2M Choromet is a 35cm tall robot. This unique robot has some amazing functionalities like 3D vision and object recognition. This robot developed in Japan can perform realistic dance steps and also tasks like opening the refrigerator. Flexibility of this robot comes from the 20 servos incorporated in it which give it 20 degrees of freedom. The HRP-2m Choromet can stand on one leg, lie down and even stand-up all by itself. This model has a gyro sensor, acceleration sensor and an Ethernet port for connectivity. The robot is specially designed to support the basic AIST software including the OpenHRP package. Complexity of Choromet is due to many sensors which enhance the features of this robot. In addition to accelerometer and gyroscope sensors in its trunk, its feet include special triaxial force sensors (on each leg). This large number of sensors enables it to be programmed using feedback loops. Choromet has wide range of motions like walking, waving, running, sitting etc and also has the ability to lie flat on its back or on its face, and then stand up again. Choromet’s CPU is SH-4(SH7751R) running at 240MHz (with 32 MB RAM and 32 MB Flash ROM). What distinguishes this 1 1/2 pound humanoid robot from others is that it runs on ART-Linux which is a hard real-time Linux ( developed at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology).
