Kengoro: unique robot with human behavior
There are many humanoid robots that move lifelike. However, if we talk about moving or interacting with the outside world, only a few can act like a person.
Scientists at the University of Tokyo are developing Kengoro, a robot that not only mimic human movements, but also repeats the mechanism of organs. For example, it sweats with heavy loads.
Standard humanoids are built based on classical mechanics and electronics, therefore they can not recreate the body's habitual reactions.
Researchers want to develop a humanoid based on human musculoskeletal system, its nervous system and methods of information processing in the brain. It is important for them to fully transfer the basics of human anatomy into a robot, especially if it will be in contact with people in the future.
