The Organising Committee for the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo – that last month confirmed that Games winners would receive medals made using recycled electronic waste – has revealed the first Tokyo 2020 Robot Project helpers, which will assist spectators in wheelchairs to ensure they have “an experience they are unlikely to forget.”

“The Tokyo 2020 Games are a unique opportunity for us to display Japanese robot technology,” said Tokyo 2020 Robot Project’s Hirohisa Hirukawa. “This project will not simply be about exhibiting robots, but showcasing their practical real-life deployment helping people. So there will be not only sports at the Tokyo 2020 Games, but some cool robots at work to look forward to as well.”

The Project has revealed that Games fans in wheelchairs can look forward to receiving help and assistance from Toyota’s Human Support Robot and Delivery Support Robot. The bots will carry food and other goods to spectators at the Olympic Stadium, guide people to their seats and act as event information guides.
