HRP-4 is a life-size “platform for research and development of working humanoid robots” we have developed in collaboration with the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), an independent administrative legal entity.
Incorporating to the external design the “slim athlete” concept pursuing affinity with humans, HRP-4 has achieved the new, light-weighted and slim body while succeeding the concept of the conventional models HRP-2 or HRP-3 where the robots coexist with humans and assist or replace human operations or behavior.
Further, promotion of optimized specifications or component sharing/simplification has reduced the price for the robot, a great step forward the next-generation working humanoid robot.
For its control, HRP-4 employs OpenRTM-aist to make available national and international software assets, improving efficiency in research.

The HRP-4 is primarily designed for use at R&D facilities at universities and companies.
