Sensoroid and smart chair

THK showcased two prototypes at Hannover Messe: ATMOS e ARGUS MOVA. The former is a humanoid sensoroid that is able to grasp various conditions of the surrounding environment.
Sensors can be embedded all over the robot, thus enabling the environment in which a person is situated to be visualized on the basis of a diversity of factors. Designed as a silhouette of the human body formed in grey acrylic around a white framework.
THK’s FBL27D slide rails are used in the chest area, and a microcomputer or other device can be installed as well. THK’s RF77F cross-roller ring is also used for/in the robot’s waist. Sensor data is visualized on a separate monitor.
Argus Mova is a smart sensing chair that measures a person’s respiration, heart rate, stress levels, and more will also be on display. Its shape takes into consideration this product’s deployment as seats in automobiles, trains, airplanes and other applications.
High-sensitivity piezo sensors are incorporated into the seat portion, enabling heart beat, respiration rate, and more to be detected based on minute movements of the human body.
