Canadian scientists are developing a robot that can imitate human facial lexis and hand touch the course, they thought it would be like the concern, preservation of nuclear power plants and dumping of explosive devices is very useful. It even can be used as a accompanying person.
The technology is a key element of the new biology-inspired touch-sensitive artificial skin, it can sense touch, and configuration files, and the surface temperature flexibility, and ultimately improve the level of human robot tactile sensitivity. Artificial skin is elastic and silicon temperature sensors embedded and tactical.
“We use our source of inspiration for life. Human beings are the most comfortable equipment, mobile and respond the same way we interact, said:” The principal investigator Emil Petriu, University of Ottawa, a Canadian Space Agency, who did the work of computer engineers .
In the laboratory, he and his colleagues tested the theme with their robot, methodically replacing more parts, they are designing life-like mechanical parts. They will start with the head, and hands.
They are designed for mechanical and electronic sensor equipment of some content, such as complex prosthesis, can be a lot of information Covey through touch.
Robot to perform some human features, such as nursing home care or the ability, Petriu critical that they must be user-friendly way.
If a robot into physical contact with people, interaction will be more comfortable if it is warm our skin touch and Petriu said. “It is essential that they should have a warm, fuzzy feeling or do not feel human.”
He can warm up the surface of the prosthesis to match the flow of casino online embedded artificial skin in the white-hot water temperature of human skin.
Petriu also installed drive (artificial muscles as micro-motors embedded) in the new acquisition, the correct anatomical parts of the human skull model set – with spring jaw completely replicate the lower face action.
The drive will be overwritten the skin elasticity. The aim is to produce a height-like life, from the complex on behalf of a surprise to the people the ability to express anger.
Charles Darwin is one of the first scientists to identify the interpersonal communication and the establishment of a formal coding system to connect various combinations of muscle-specific expression of the value of later scientists, facial expressions, Petriu said.
The same coding system will provide more than Petriu programming the movement of artificial skin test skull base, so that all looked familiar and real.
Petriu that robots may one day be our companion in a symbiotic relationship.
“Our society is becoming more and more disconnected,” he said, pointing to a generation, more and spend more time alone, communication virtually.
If such a person who missed the companionship of others, the existence of a robot to meet a person not related to the complexity of this need, said Petriu.
