If robots are going to become a part of our daily life, they will have to fit into our home. Few people will feel comfortable when a metal spider or caterpillar crawls nearby, so at the University of the Artificial Intelligence Laboratory in Zurich (AI lab) create a baby robot called "Roboy". Using "humanoid robots" that mimic the human body, you can create a humanoid robot, next to which people would feel more comfortable.
Roboy does not look very nice at the moment. In fact, it is more like a skeleton cyborg, than on the charming child, but still ahead the robot is under construction. The purpose of the laboratory is to create a robot within nine months, no matter how symbolic it was not sounded. Work began in June last year, the project involved more than 40 engineers and scientists. The project is financed through sponsorship and collective investments.
Roboy is based on the experience of the previous laboratory project, humanoid, with the frightening name of cycloptic Eccerobot. Made of plastic, Roboy copies the human musculoskeletal system. Instead of engines in joints, Roboy uses common engines, which pull the cables, like muscles and tendons. AI lab argues that this system will allow Roboy to move with almost the same grace as a man.
A robot is being created to simplify the lives of people, as well as to help the elderly.
В настоящее время разрабатывается новое лицо, а позже Roboy будет покрыт человекоподобной кожей, для улучшения тактильного и эстетического восприятия. Впервые публике представят робота 9 марта 2013 года на 25 — летие AI lab.Photogallery Total | 39 pictures
