New humanoid robot sweats during exercise
Published : 02 Jan 2018, 16:53
Scientists have developed a new humanoid robot that can perform exercises such as sit-ups and push-ups, and even sweat, just like humans.
The robot has an artificial perspiration system and anatomically resembles the musculoskeletal intricacy of a human body, reports the Press Trust of India.
Developed by scientists at the University of Tokyo in Japan, the robot called Kengoro can be used as crash test dummies, and to design muscle analytics for athletes and sports.
The team has been developing humanoid robots for several years now. Kengoro is the most advanced iteration of a series that began in 2001 with a bot named Kenta, ‘New Atlas’ reported.
Its most interesting development is the artificial perspiration system, according to a study published in the journal Science Robotics.
The system not only mimics the way human beings sweat, but also prevents overheating of the robot by running water through its skeletal frame and allowing steam to vent out of small outlets.
Kengoro can execute a series of human-like movements resembling a tough exercise workout, including push-ups and sit-ups.
