Toyota Humanoid Robot Can Run Faster Than Most Humans
In the video demo above, Toyota showcases one of their latest robots. The robot is in the form of a human and has the ability to run at 7km/hr (4.35MPH). This is even faster than Honda’s ASIMO humanoid robot, which can run at 6km/hr (3.72MPH).
Toyota’s robot prototype is 130cm tall and weighs 110 lbs. The Toyota robot’s legs have 7 degrees of freedom and uses real-time methods for balance control. The robot takes a step every 340 milliseconds. If you’re not a fan of watching robots getting pushed around, don’t watch the video.This article was written by Amit Chowdhry.
