Humanoid Robot Drags a Load
Dr. Guero, the amazing Japanese hobby roboticist who recently demonstrated biped walking over rough terrain, is back with a new video. This one demonstrates his steadfast robot doggedly pulling a heavy crate — and automatically adjusting its gait as more weight is added.
Try that, Asimo! Once again we see how hobby robotics can not only imitate the state of the art, but actually go beyond.
For the curious, the Japanese description below the video translates roughly to:
The tension of a load causes the body to lead forward to maintain balance, similar to a human. This video is in addition to the “walking over irregular terrain” video of the same robot.
Hats off, once again, to Dr. Guero and his amazing mechanical marvel!
