HRP-2 humanoid robot Franco-Japanese

robot_10cnrsHRP-2 humanoid robot is in Toulouse from May 22 this year at the Laboratory for Analysis and Architecture of Systems (LAAS) of CNRS. Born in Japan in 2003, measuring 1.54 m and a weight of 58 kg, is one of fifteen such robots developed by AIST (National Institute of Science and Technology of Advanced Industrial) under of the Humanoid Robotics Project, Continue reading


Some of the following kits and robots could be used as the basis for an entry in the schools or the maze solving micromouse competition or just for learning about mobile robots.The list is, I believe, a complete list of micromouse type robot kits and built robots that are available in the UK and on the web. The list gives the prices and specifications with the manufacturer’s and retailer’s details. Continue reading

Kushiro College robot

Kushiro College robot, multi-foot zone, 24-foot robot Trilobita of centipede. And walking in the zone, it appears the penguins from Trilobita, making it a “major evolution of life” is appropriate for the robot. “Our robot is” cheap! Light! “Thorough目指SHIMASHITA selling energy conservation. A series of trial and error, so the two-legged robot penguin, I created to No. 1-10. No. 1 was a metal, low-cost, lightweight with the aim of the final six to take place from No. Do not use metal. materials, plastic panels and the ME. I picked up a few things that (laughs) “(people of Kushiro College). Much trouble is that two-legged robot, through the air but unfortunately in the middle of the Penguins, did not finish惜SHIKUMO. However, many walking to clear the zone, at the moment沸KI emerged cute penguin was leading in the national tournament this year. ● Electrical Engineering who has contributed to the low-power, low-cost lightweight Aimed at saving energy, the two-legged robot. It was used in motor control technology related to electrical engineering. “Motor control was important. For less power to operate a motor circuit, a combination of motors purchased from the manufacturer, the motor is made in the original. Compatible with every manufacturer I have not struggled to open a hole in the motor and gear炙RI in the gas burner, and welded組MI合WASEMASHITA “(people of Kushiro College). Motor purchased is not a cheap choice for most manufacturers. Also, to improve the durability of the motor, “forced to change gears metal gear resins,仕上GEMASHITA a very robust high torque motor high speed” and also telling us. HAKATTA a result of these low-power, low-cost motor, cutter and TSUKURERU just saw, most of it dressed in a low-cost robots. In some ways that you Kushiro College produced the first practical process. One of you that UKAGAIMASHITA future goals. “In the future, we就KITAI to work in the field of robotics in the medical robot. In particular, we want to support the development of robots that people with orthopedic disorders. Therefore, my life for electrical engineering is closely bound to be a lifetime. “

Toyota also researches very active in robots

Toyota Musikalisches GenieActually, Toyota builds cars. But just as Kokurrent Honda Toyota also researches very active in robots. Now they have a very sensitive human machines. He has soft lips and plays trumpet. As the looks, you know, when you click the button “Photo Gallery” on the top right button. Not only for Sony, even with the car manufacturers, the nature of humanoids radiate heat. And one day will have its skin soft and delicate touch. Continue reading
