Leju Robot (乐聚机器人), a desktop robot startup, and Kaihong (深开鸿), a software developer, announced on November 17 that they had launched the first humanoid robot utilizing a platform derived from Huawei’s Harmony Operating System (HarmonyOS).
The two firms, both headquartered in the southern boomtown Shenzhen, said in a joint statement that the robot, with a dimension of 346mm * 224mm *118mm, weighs in at 1.73 kg.
Built with aluminum alloy and PC/ABS materials, the toy-sized gadget possesses 17 degrees of freedom.
On the hardware side, it comes with dual cameras and dual computing systems (STM32 and RK3568), in addition to seven sensors designed to detect human infrared radiation and measure temperature and humidity.
The device, meant mainly for STEM education and further development, is equipped with an educational system that can literally connect with everything in the surrounding environment.
This makes the gadget fit to function in scenarios such as smart healthcare, smart home and smart factory, the statement said.
Leju’s Roban robot
Kaihong is behind the invention of KaihongOS, which is a variant of Huawei’s HarmonyOS.
It supports graphics programming and a series of programming languages like C/C++ language and Js/ArkTS.
When applied to desktop hardware and AI learning, KaihongOS is said to act as an IoT platform that connects and controls smart terminals like sensors, modules and touchscreens.
This is the first time the HarmonyOS is reportedly used to underpin a robotic operating platform.
Meanwhile, Leju Robot supplies customers with Lego-like building blocks and an array of desktop robots catering to underage students learning to program or taking part in programming competitions.
