Robot Investigate the Movement of Animals

In order to understand how animals move, researchers at the University of Bielefeld have decided to create a six-legged walking robot, which they named Hector. Name of the robot is an acronym that stands for Hexapod Cognitive Autonomously Operating Robot.Small robot will be used in various experiments. It boasts 6 feet with 18 joints and 3 segments of the body with two joints. Each joint uses a new kind of autonomous, flexible drive and includes sensors, electronics and even its own processor. In addition, each drive is a touch-sensitive elastic coupling. The latter allows the legs to move the robot using biologically inspired control algorithms. These algorithms allow Hector to react during the impact or interaction with people.


The robot also has a very durable exoskeleton created by using a fiber-reinforced plastics,allowing Hector to carry heavy loads. Due to the fact that the robot was built for use in various projects, Hector has a special design that allows you to attach to it the equipment for eksperimentov. For example, the camera is used for short-and long-range sensing, can be replaced with a tactile antenna for the study neighborhoods.
