Emulating The Human Body With Robotics (Video)
Philippe Kervizic with Robotics Business contributed another interesting video from last week's InnoRobo show:
According to Philippe:
"It is a very great flexible robot. The Robot Studio is a company that works with 4 universities since 6 years to develop this robot. They copy all human mechanical parts to replace muscles by motors. All bones, joints and movements are copied: one motor, one rope and a flexible part is used for every human muscle. When a muscle isn't used, it is flexible.
There are no applications, it is a research project to understand how it works.
After a full working day at the exhibition, the robot is tired and has to get rest (to lie down) to make its bones back to original place, they have to replace some tendons (ropes and flexible part) everyday."
