Robotic Torso Imitates The Human Musculoskeletal System [Video]
The Eccerobot mimics our muscular and skeletal movements and has basic cognitive functions.
- 10 april 2012
The Eccerobot was created by robotics specialist Owen Holland with the ETF Robotics Research Group at the University of Belgrade. The anthropomimetic robotic torso can closely mimic the human muscular and skeletal framework. The robot has complex structures like elastic tendons and muscles, joints operated by rotators, and life-like movements created through careful coordination.
The most recent development to the Eccerobot included adding higher-level cognitive functioning and the ability to teach it new functions, such as catching a dropping object, or holding something with its hands. Watch the introductory video below:
