Scientists have developed a bipedal robot named Cassie. This robot has the most realistic implementation of a human walk. It is the first time when scientists achieve such a thing, developing a machine which almost walks like a human. The company who designed this is called Agility Robotics. The bipedal robot can walk with greater control and agility than any other robot.
- Engineers at Agility Robotics developed a revolutionary bipedal robot.
- This product imitates a human’s walk by using a very small amount of energy.
- The robot is bound to help people in the future, by delivering goods and going shopping.
Specialists have been long struggling to develop robots which have characteristics unique to humans, trying to walk and look like them. Once they reach to resemble more people when walking, this will help them traverse uneven terrain and certain complex, preventing them from falling.
In the future, the proper and revolutionized the walking ability of robots may help us use them to deliver goods. They may also be used in rescue missions or to perform a search which may be too dangerous for people. Jonathan Hurst, a chief technology officer at Agility Robotics which is a spin-off of Oregon State University, claimed that this technology would become extremely popular and useful at some point.
Someday, engineers and scientists will develop efficient robots and automated machines that they will be able to receive deliveries almost for free. The bipedal robot is prone to ease people’s chores, helping them with delivering goods and shopping, offering the customer more time to do important things. The product efficiently brings automated logistics from the warehouses out and into the world.
Even if the bipedal robot was intended to move and walk like a human being, its crouched mechanic legs are similar to the ones of an ostrich. Some may say that this robot is creepy, walking just like a chicken. Developers argue that they did not want to replicate the appearance of an animal. They only intended to use the suitable techniques to allow the robot to move and walk more freely, being more efficient than other two-legged robots.
There were developed a lot of bipedal robots in the world, but they all need massive amounts of energy to walk and move. What is more, they are bound to move very slow compared to Cassie. Agility Robotics scientists noted that other bipedal robots should not be compared with Cassie when it comes to dynamically walking around because Cassie exceeded any other robot’s performance.
