Panasonic’s vision for robotics development

Interview with Takeshi Ando of Robotics Hub: Towards a more “human” lifestyle

The value in our robotics work lies in Lifestyle update through automation and the augmentation of human ability. Our goal is to develop robotic technology that can solve labor shortages using automation, while helping people achieve more satisfying, human lives by enhancing their abilities. In doing so, we hope to raise standards of living.
We founded Robotics Hub as a platform for collaborative development of robotics technology. It enables us to accelerate robotics development by tackling major challenges in cooperation with a range of partners inside and outside the company, generating new business in the process.
