EMIEW is a robot developed by Hitachi. Another version has also been made called EMIEW 2.[1] EMIEW stands for Excellent Mobility and Interactive Existence as Workmate.[2] Two EMIEWs have been made, called Pal and Chum. Hitachi stated that Pal and Chum, have a vocabulary of about 100 words, and Pal exhibited these skills by telling reporters: "I want to be able to walk about in places like Shinjuku and Shibuya in the future without bumping into people and cars".[2] Both EMIEWs have a top speed of 6 km/h (matching Honda's ASIMO) and can avoid obstacles.[3]
