27 April 2018

J-deite RIDE is a 4-meter tall robot that can transform from a bipedal walking humanoid form (robot mode) to a wheel-driven form (vehicle mode) and back.

Up to two people can ride the robot and is operable from the driver’s seat. It can also be operated by remote-control via wireless network. BRAVE ROBOTICS designed and developed the hardware, including the unique transforming mechanism, and Asratec’s robot control system “V-Sido” performs the robot motions such as the transformation, bipedal walking, wheel driving and more. Mechanical designer Kunio Okawara cooperated in the robot design.

J-deite Ride LLP, Asratec, Sansei Technologies and BRAVE ROBOTICS have just announced the prototype and Sansei will seek to develop and commercialise transforming robot type amusement rides for amusement parks, such as “transforming go-karts” or “transforming demonstrations at parades”, using the transforming technology of J-deite RIDE.
