Kawada Robotics was born on April 1, 2013. The company was spun off from the Robotics Division of Kawada Industries, a pioneer in the commercialization of humanoid robots. Kawada Industries will continue to manufacture and sell our robotic products, including the dual-arm robot NEXTAGE and bipedal HRP series.
Kawada Robotics’ goal is to present a “new work style” where people and robots share the job. Until now, humans and robots generally worked in separate environments, but Kawada envisions a future where the same job can be taken care of by a person or a robot, depending on the time, need and situation. Once people and robots really start working together, the way we invest our time and society will drastically change.
