Toyota robot to be used as standard at next year's RoboCup

LEIPZIG, Germany -- Toyota Motor intends to start mass producing domestic-helper robots by March 2020. The robots would be built and programmed to help the elderly at home.

Toyota's standard HSR is about a meter tall and can carry an object that weighs up to 1.2kg.

Further, the leading automaker hopes to sell 1,000 of its Human Support Robots by the fiscal year through March 2021.
