This “humanoid” platform – one of the most promising, and the U.S. military are looking at it with a special interest. First, they must take the testing of new chemical suits and radiation protection. Ability to stand without support and walk alone makes it a much more accurate simulation of real media, than the existing mannequins. But it is – just the beginning.
In Boston Dynamics promise: Pitman able to independently balance and move freely, walking, crawling and doing a series of movements to test the suits, while being exposed to hazardous substances. It will simulate some of the factors of human physiology, maintaining a surface temperature of the skin, as well as the humidity, “sweating” if necessary “.
