Robotics has made several advancements throughout the years and one of those is the development of humanoid robots. Humanoid robots imitate human form through perception, processing, and action. Humanoid robotics was developed for the interaction with human beings among their environments and tools. These human robots can match the physical, cognitive, and social aspects of people, making them capable of the same tasks as humans.
Characteristics of Humanoid Robots
Humanoid robots use computer vision and sensors as their form of perception. Their sensors also contain apparatuses to implement simulation technology.
They are able to learn and adapt in order to function in everyday life. Having the ability to adapt to change is the main difference between humanoids and other robots. Eventually engineers plan to develop humanoids that can learn on the go without having to be programmed.
Humanoid robots contain arm control with manipulation and the latest models are now sporting sleek arms as opposed to the bulky/noisy ones of the past.
They are capable of being self-sufficient by performing their own maintenance, such as recharging their batteries.
Humanoid robots have been designed to safely work with and for humans. This has extended the variety of tasks and environments in which they can perform for manufacturers.
