The purpose of this presentation is to unveil the directors' next task, which they will take on in the "Gundam Global Challenge," a life-size "moving Gundam" development project.


The SR-02 is a vehicle (ride) that can move by walking on four legs and is mostly an entertainment robot. The present prototype robotic vehicle has a total length of roughly 3.6 meters, a total width of approximately 2.0 meters, a total height of approximately 2.7 meters (when walking), and is capable of walking with four people on board. It is capable of walking (forward/backward/right/left turns), bending and stretching movements for people to get on and off, rolling, and pitching, and it employs the V-Sido control system.

Asratec's V-Sido robot control technology allows the robot to move in real time and is sturdy enough to prevent it from falling over when subjected to sudden impacts or on unstable ground. It is applicable to a wide range of robots regardless of shape, size, or actuator type, and it is also distinguished by its great versatility, such as the ability to move robots from multiple devices (interfaces).


The ARCHAX was intended to give the world the dream experience that many people have always wanted: to board and operate a giant robot that looks like something out of a science fiction movie. Japan excels at the aspects required for riding robots, such as anime, games, industrial machinery, and automobiles, and they want to provide the world with ''This is Japan'' items that combine these ideas.

ARCHAX intends to develop a whole new market for riding robots, with the luxury sector, such as ultra-luxury cars and private aircraft, serving as a model for our products. Their primary consumers are wealthy individuals, and they have begun accepting orders not only domestically but also internationally.

A demonstration of the robotic vehicles will als be taking place during the exhibition period, so make sure to stop by if you're in Japan!

  1. Japan will undoubtedly reach the stage where their military will be made out of mobile suits one day. Maybe not as advanced as in the anime, but certainly enough to rule the battlefield.
