Robina, Toyota’s Tourguide Who Teaches Fellow Robots

Toyota’s latest robot isn’t bumping around a lab or, like Honda’s Asimo, taking trips to Disneyland. Robina (short for Robot as Intelligent Assistant) has a job.

It guides visitors through the Toyota Kaikan Exhibition Hall in Japan. The 4-ft.-tall, permanently coifed bot is fully autonomous and can navigate around obstacles, chat with visitors and even sign autographs without human assistance.
