Toyota Research Institute experiments with robots that hang from the ceiling and unfold to clean the kitchen

Researchers are using fleet learning and simulations to train robots to navigate one of the most complex environments: A home.

gmk.jpg

Visiting  private homes in Japan inspired researchers to build a new domestic robot that moves around on the ceiling instead of the floor.

Working in a factory is easy for robots with the structured environment and repetitive tasks that come with that job. Helping with housework is a much bigger challenge. Scientists at the Toyota Research Institute (TRI) are taking on that challenge by building new domestic robots and training them in a mock home.

Gill Pratt, the CEO of TRI and Kelly Kay, the Institute’s executive vice president and chief finance officer, gave a virtual tour of the TRI labs on Thursday. Max Bajracharya, the vice president of robotics and Steffi Paepcke, the senior user experience leader, explained the research and development process for building these robots. 

The team is prioritizing user experience research, human-centered design, and ikigai–the idea that each person’s life should have deep meaning and purpose. 

The institute’s philosophy is to build robots that take over tasks that have become too difficult for older adults instead of building a one-size-fits-all robot to take over all activities. One prototype is a gantry robot that unfolds from the ceiling to help with household tasks like a bat unfolding its wings. 

The floor model looks like a praying mantis perched on a box. Researchers are using these models to develop capabilities. 

“The robots that you see today are prototypes to accelerate our research, but they are not going to be turned into products any time soon,” Bajracharya said.

Field research for robotics experts

Paepcke said the team used the “genchi genbutsu” research technique which means, “go see for yourself,” to understand how to build domestic robots.

Before the pandemic started, researchers went to private homes in Japan to understand the daily challenges older adults and their caregivers face. Paepcke said that the goal was to understand which tasks people wanted help with as opposed to building a robot that does everything. Paepcke and her colleagues described the goal of their work to amplify human ability and help people continue to do tasks and activities that they find meaningful and enjoyable.

 “A fully automated cooking robot might be physically helpful but emotionally detrimental,” she 

Researchers used the home visits to move the cleaning robot from the floor to the ceiling.  

Bajracharya said that the home visits showed that there was not much floor space available for a robot to move but that the ceiling provided more open real estate.

Researchers used virtual reality (VR) to teach the domestic robots how to clean a surface. A researcher performed the task in virtual reality to show the robot how to complete the task. Another challenge is helping robots understand how to distinguish between different surfaces such as wood, glass, and plastic.

Jeremy Ma, the Institute’s co-lead of the Robotics Fleet Learning Team, said the next challenge is to

Wolfe Research singles out Five Below, At Home and Floor & Decor as retail winners (NASDAQ:FIVE)

Wolfe Research launches coverage on Five Below (FIVE +2.9%), Floor & Decor Holdings (FND +2.5%) and At Home Group (HOME +3.2%) with Outperform ratings.

The firms assigns a price target of $150 on FIVE vs. the average Wall Street PT of $136.50. “In our view, FIVE operates one of the most unique traffic-driven models across all of retail with industry leading new unit economics and an agile merchant team helping to deliver consistent positive comp sales growth through an “on trend” product assortment. We see a clear path towards sustained double-digit new store expansion over the next several years.”

The firms assigns a price target of $84 on FND vs. the average Wall Street PT of $76.16. ” FND continues to benefit from a solid housing backdrop and the potential for sustained momentum in the home improvement sector, specifically a structural shift towards hard surface flooring. As one of the rare new unit growth opportunities across retail, FND should further unlock the benefits of scale in coming years to drive operating margins towards a low double-digit rate.”

The firms assigns a price target of $18 on HOME vs. the average Wall Street PT of $20.29. “Q2 results and trends early into Q3 appear as an inflection point in the trajectory of the HOME business model. We view the pullback in shares post Q2 results as an attractive entry point with a risk-reward tilted favorably from here.”

Compare the three retail stocks side by side.

House passes legislation to boost election security research

The House on Wednesday unanimously passed bipartisan legislation intended to boost research into the security of election infrastructure. 

The Election Technology Research Act would establish and fund a Center of Excellence in Election Systems at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to test the security and accessibility of voting equipment, along with authorizing NIST and the National Science Foundation to carry out research on further securing voting technology.

Sherrill said on the House floor Wednesday that it was “incumbent” on Congress to pass legislation enhancing election security in the wake of increasing concerns around election interference efforts.

“Amidst a global pandemic, targeted attacks on our democracy by our adversaries and political unrest, Americans deserve to know that our elections are secure,” Sherrill said. 

The House Science, Space, and Technology Committee approved the bill last year. Both Johnson and Lucas spoke in the bill’s favor on the House floor, with Johnson arguing the bill was necessary “to help modernize and secure our election systems and ensure they are accessible to all.”

“The security and integrity of elections is fundamental to American democracy, and should not be a partisan issue,” Lucas added.
