France Developing Advanced Humanoid Robot Romeo

Filed under: Presse — Schlagwörter: — berndvo @ 14:18

Paris-based Aldebaran Robotics, famed for its small humanoid robot Nao, is working with major French research organizations to build a larger and more capable humanoid called Romeo, to be unveiled next March.

Designed to assist elderly and disabled individuals in their daily activities, the 1.4-meter-tall robot will be able to walk through a home, fetching food from the kitchen, taking out the garbage, and acting as a loyal companion who helps entertain its owners and keep tabs on their health.

Expected to cost about 250,000 euros, Romeo will be available first to partners in the project and university researchers. An improved version will later be offered to hospitals and nursing homes, and after that to individuals as well.

Aldebaran claims that Romeo, weighing in at 40 kilograms, will introduce several innovations, including a four-vertebra backbone, articulated feet, a partially soft torso, a composite leg exoskeleton, and a new kind of actuator that lets the robot control its limbs in a safer way.
