T-53 Enru - Smaller, More Efficient, Just As Scary

In 2004, Tmsuk developed T-52 Enru for rescue work. Weighing about 6 tons, it features waldos designed to save victims of earthquakes, car accidents and other emergencies.


The company didn't stop there. After working with the national fire department in Japan, they came up with a new and improved model, the T-53, that is more compact and has better maneuverability. The bot was used in recovery efforts during the Kashiwazaki City earthquake. Check out Tmsuk's site. They have been working on service robotics from as far back as 1993 with their TMSUK-1, a receptionist.
