TOKYO (Reuters) – Tokyo 2020 Olympics and Paralympics organizers launched their ambitious Robot Project on Friday, unveiling two of the robots designed to assist supporters, workers and athletes at the Games.
The two products, Toyota’s Human Support Robot (HSR) and the Power Assist Suit from Panasonic, were demonstrated to the public for the first time in Tokyo.
The HSR, a small white robot with built-in facial features, will assist wheelchair users at the Olympics, which begin in July 2020.
The robots can carry food and other goods, guide viewers to their seats and provide event information.
“We will support people at the Olympics and at the stadium in wheelchair accessible areas,” said Minoru Yamauchi, who is in charge of Toyota’s 2020 robots program.
“In terms of service, we will be offering stress-free entry and viewing and the robot can also carry bags and other luggage items for the customers.”
There will be 16 HSR robots at Tokyo 2020 venues and Toyota hope to have similar products available for general sale by the early 2030s.
Panasonic also presented their offering, a battery-powered exoskeleton that assists with picking up heavy objects.
People are strapped into the Power Assist Suits, which enable users to repetitively lift and carry objects without putting a strain on their back.
They will be used by workers at Olympic and Paralympic venues, as well as the athletes’ village.
Tokyo 2020 organizers have long maintained next year’s summer showpiece will be the most innovative ever and more robots are expected to be announced later.
“At Pyeongchang there are examples of robots being used at the Games but I don’t think it was to this sort of practical level,” said Tokyo 2020 Vice Director General Maasaki Komiya.
“So, let me reiterate, we want to give the impression that robots are actually usable and they can become part of our daily lives.”
“At past Games I do not believe that we really saw robots as part of the Games.”
The Olympics begin on July 24, 2020 with the Paralympics commencing a month later.

ADDIS ABABA (Reuters) – Ethiopians clad in traditional mourning shawls and other black clothing gathered silently in a hotel conference room in Addis Ababa on Thursday, the loved ones of victims of ET Flight 302, before boarding buses headed for the crash site.
Couples held each other, slumped forward in their chairs and gazing downwards. Some men held their heads in their hands. Women in head scarves leaned for comfort against the chests of their relatives.
Some stood up to ask questions. They said they wanted more “transparency” from the airlines and more details of Sunday’s accident.
An airlines staff member replied that the crash was under investigation and that more details were emerging day by day.
A stoic man in a dark coat said he was steeling himself for the three-hour journey to the crash site.
Tewfik Ahmed, 39, was raised by the father of Ahmed Nur Mohammed, the deputy pilot of ET 302. Tewfik traveled from his home in the south of the country to pay his respects.
“Ahmed was the pride of the family,” he told Reuters, seated alongside several other mourners. “Heading to the site is the least I can do for him.”
All 149 passengers and eight crew aboard the flight were killed when their Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 MAX 8 crashed six minutes after taking off from the high-altitude capital of Ethiopia. The nation of 105 million people has long been proud of its state-owned airlines, its most successful company and the only profitable airline in sub-Saharan Africa.
Nine Ethiopians were killed in the crash, along with 32 Kenyans, 18 Canadians, and eight people each from China and Italy. A total of 35 nationalities were on board.
The mourners gathered at the Ethiopian Airlines-owned Skylight Hotel near Bole International Airport. Some held up framed photographs of young loved ones.
The room filled over the course of a half hour, becoming a packed, makeshift grieving center.
An Ethiopian Airlines staff member, also wearing black, told the mourners it was offering them free accommodation. She also said the company would provide counseling. The staff members were flanked by bouquets of white roses and white candles.
BLACK BOXES FLOWN TO PARIS
The embassies of Canada, China, and Kenya had also asked Ethiopian Airlines to set up conference rooms for the families of victims from their countries. Early on Thursday morning, those rooms contained the national flags of those countries, but no relatives or friends of the victims.
The airline said on Twitter that an Ethiopian delegation had flown the black boxes from flight ET 302 to Paris for investigation. The contents of the flight data recorder and cockpit voice recorder will provide critical details about what happened, experts say.
The crash was the second disaster involving the 737 MAX, the world’s most-sold modern passenger aircraft, in less than five months, and by the end of Wednesday, the jet had been grounded globally by regulators and airlines.
The jet plunged into a field 60 km outside Addis Ababa, and the impact of the crash and fire left the victims’ remains in fragments that could take weeks or months to identify, experts say.
In both the Ethiopian Orthodox and Muslim faiths that are widely practised in the country, religious rules call for the burial of the dead as soon as possible.
Hamze Abdi Hussein came from the eastern Ethiopian town of Jijiga with five other family members after receiving confirmation of the crash that killed his uncle, Mucaad Hussein Abdela, a truck driver from Minnesota who was on his way to Kenya to visit relatives.
“We visited the crash site yesterday and we are heading there today. It is a huge loss for us,” he told Reuters. “The fact that there is no information about whether we will receive the body or not is frustrating and painful. There is not much that we are getting.”
After the brief Q and A session, the Ethiopian mourners filed silently out of the room and slowly boarded the convoy of eight Ethiopian Airlines buses.
The mourners looked like travelers themselves. Except they carried no luggage, only items to honor the dead in their final resting place.

It’s Spring Break season on college campuses nation-wide. I just got back from a 10-day trip to Europe and it was amazing! However, packing for 10 days can be difficult. On the majority of flights, you have a 50-lb limit on your checked luggage. Everyone on my trip made jokes about dragging our checked bags to the campus gym and weighing them there. Luckily, I had the Camry 100 Lbs Luggage Scale I bought off of Amazon.
It came in handy while weighing my own luggage (which was only 30 pounds, thank you). I also became the most popular person on the trip the day before our departure.
This scale is perfect for air travel. All you do is hook it to your checked bag and lift up the handle and the scale will tell you how much your bag weighs.
Not only is it practical but it’s on sale, too! Normally, it’s priced at $29.98, but if you buy it now, you can get it for $9.63. It’s a practical purchase you will use the rest of your life while traveling.
Don’t delay, you’ll be grateful you have this before weighing your luggage at the airport!
