At CES 2018, the Honda 3E Robotics Concept is set to be unveiled, introducing new and experimental technologies that are centered around helpful, empathetic interactions.
The 3E (Empower, Experience, Empathy) Robotics Concept includes four robots, each of which is suited to a different role. While 3E-A18 was created as a companion robot with expressive features, 3E-B18 takes the form of a single-seat mobility concept for indoor or outdoor spaces. This series also includes the electric 3E-C18 with wheels and cargo space, as well as the autonomous off-road vehicle 3E-D18.
As a whole, Honda created its 3E Robotics Concept with the intention of improving mobility and the lives of people, potentially in scenarios that include everything from recreation to disaster recovery.
