Robots tribute to workers

asimo-wallpaper3The Japanese humanoid robots have regularly beautiful ‘buzz’ on the Internet each time a new energumen is shown to the press, they are not far from it, the species most prevalent. Their fellow who bossent without uncoupling in factories are thousands of times more numerous and equally impressive. Let them justice. Of a total of approximately one million robots in operation in the world, 40% are in Japan, 30% in Western Europe, and 15% in the USA. If we look at the figures, one finds that Germany alone totaled nearly 45% of the number of robots used in plants in Europe and France 10%, 3% of the working population robotics world. All these figures reflect another reality: that the settlements factories in a given territory. While Japan actually pushing dozens each year (not least) for electronic products and automobiles, among others, France sees its own leave, unless the Japanese Toray, Toyota and others do not build.

A robot assistant office designed by Hitachi

CliquezThe group diversified Japanese electronics Hitachi introduced Wednesday a new robot designed to assist employees in offices and to replace the hostesses to make a green tea to visitors, through its faculties of communication and travel.Called “Emiew 2”, this humanoid robot red wheels, 80 inches tall, is the descendant of Emiew, a first version designed by Hitachi in 2005. “Emiew 2”, which includes 27 degrees of freedom (joints), is lighter than its predecessor (13 kg instead of 15 kg).
The robot assistance, designed to “cohabit with humans, is able to move independently at a speed of 6 km / h, even a human pressed. He can communicate by voice recognition and knows how to move within a company through a radar to bypass obstacles, and a map of places he could establish himself.
