Name of the robot is ‘J-deite RIDE‘. J-deite RIDE is a kind of world’s first robot. A Real Life Transformer That Can Transform From a Humanoid Robot Into a Functioning Car.
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.
The J-deite RIDE measures 4.2 × 2.5 × 3.7 m (H) in robot mode. It can go as fast as 100m/h in this mode.In vehicle mode, the machine can achieve a speed of 60 km/h. It can accommodate 2 people and be controlled by the driver or using a remote control. Unfortunately, this robot does not transform as rapidly as the ones in the movies.
