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.

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

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.”
