EU-project: Walking like humans

by

share this:

A consortium coordinated by by the Spanish Council for Scientific Research, CSIC, will develop and demonstrate human-like gait and posture in a controlled compliant biped robot as a result of a combination of the most relevant motor control and cognitive mechanisms found in humans.
The three-year project called H2R “Integrative approach for the emergence of human-like robotic locomotion”, starting on Feb 1, 2013, is co-funded by the EU FP7. A central goal of the project is to formalize a benchmarking scheme that can be used worldwide by the scientific community to assess and compare human-like skills of robotic humanoids.

The H2R consortium wants to involve the international community in this process, so that the benchmarking scheme can reach a global consensus and be universally adopted.

For more information about the project, please visit the H2R website.

Our future could be full of undying, self-repairing robots – here’s how

Could it be that future AI systems will need robotic “bodies” to interact with the world? If so, will nightmarish ideas like the self-repairing, shape-shifting T-1000 robot from the Terminator 2 movie come to fruition? And could a robot be created that could “live” forever?

The robots of CES 2023

Robots were on the main expo floor at CES this year, and these weren’t just cool robots for marketing purposes. I’ve been tracking robots at CES for more than 10 years, watching the transition from robot toys to real robots.
