Hitachi Humanoid Gets an Upgrade

Posted on June 22, 2010
Category:

A newer version of the EMIEW2 (Excellent Mobility and Interactive Existence as Workmate2) humanoid robot by Hitachi has been introduced with a series of videos demonstrating its smoother movement. It can now scoot around on uneven ground, as long as the bumps are up to 1.5 centimeters high, thanks to its new “adaptive suspension control.” The robot can also recognize and distinguish different human voices (thanks to its 14 microphones attached on the head) and even converse to people.

The robot runs up to six kilometers per hour, stands 80 centimeters tall, and weighs 14 kilograms.

Check out one of the videos at the link.
