Untethered control of the T-HR3 robot is done over a 5G mobile network, Master Maneuvering System, and VR headset. (Image credit: Toyota)   Think of it as a present-day Avatar platform, but instead of controlling bio-humanoid beings, you’re controlling Toyota’s T-HR3 robot from up to 6-miles away. Toyota recently announced conducting a successful demonstration of controlling the robot using their Master Maneuvering System (MMS) over Japan’s DOCOMO cellular 5G network. Pre ...
