The robot makes use of the ASIMO's multi-joint simultaneous orbit control and posture control. The arm, 1.7 meters in length, has eleven joints to enable access in high and narrow areas.
Using 3D point cloud technology developed for robotics applications, the laser range-finder camera generates images that are then rendered in 3-D for real-time monitoring on a computer screen.
To minimize development time, the battery pack from the ASIMO was adopted.

The compact stage allows the arm to reach very high up within cramped spaces, while a horizontal linkage system allows the robot to maintain a low profile while in motion.
The camera arm extends to a maximum height of 7.0 meters and helps discern structures in high and/or narrow areas.
