Make the Ultra Long Shot, AI Basketball Robot CUE!

The development of the AI basketball robot "CUE" began as a voluntary activity within the company in 2017. In December 2022, a webinar*1 was conducted to introduce the technology of CUE, and as a result of watching it, two new members joined the CUE development team in April 2023. One is Keinosuke Soda, who aspired to the Frontier Research Center as a new graduate. The other is Taiga Goto, who transferred from a different department at Toyota because of his strong desire. The two worked together with the CUE development team and spent about six months developing the Ultra Long Shot. Please take a look at the results*2.
