Humanoid Robot HR-2

The HR-2 robot was constructed during a period of three months at Chalmers University in Sweden. It has 22 degrees of freedom which enables it to easily move around imitating human motions. The robot is also equipped with stereovision giving it possibilities to perform hand-eye coordination. For that task an artificial neural network is evolved. Furthermore, the artificial brain is capable of tracking faces as well as recognising them. The HR-2 is also able to speak.

Robots to Save Japanese Culture?

Roboticists at the University of Tokyo and Kawada Industries have made great strides programming complex leg movements in biped humanoid robots with the necessary stability to pull off intricate dance maneuvers. HRP-2, weighing in at 5 feet and 125 pounds, uses a video motion-capture system to record dance lessons replicate them convincingly. In the video below, the robot was able to watch an instructor perform a folk dance called Aizu-Bandaisan and accurately perform it.
