It’s easy to put robots in the far off future. Despite over a century of literature, film, and television depicting mechanical devices helping or hunting humans, we’re conditioned to think of robots as futuristic and out of our reach. After twenty years of technological advancement, this is further from the truth than ever. A growing number of dangerous people is the result of knowledge and mechanical technology. The history of robots goes back quite a ways. The ability of robots to mimic human actions continues to astound us, whether we’re talking about the first generation of industrial robots, the first generation of humanoid robots, or robots that can do a perfect backward somersault. It’s shocking how much better some of them are than we are! In this video, we take a look at the top 5 humanoid robots currently in existence.
Nadine the social humanoid robot
Meet Nadine, based on the real-life professor Nadia Magnenat Thalmann, continuing our topic of robotic academics. Nadine is more than just a robot; she is a social being who can greet you, carry on a pleasant conversation, and remember the details for future interactions. She can take up where you left off in a discussion, respond to queries in multiple languages, and fake a range of emotions. Amazingly, that wasn’t even the end of Nadine’s success at the art-science museum in Singapore; she also engaged with almost 100,000 visitors to the “Human+ the future of our species” exhibition. Since then, Nadine has spoken business with everyone from Deutsche Bank executives to His Excellency Narendra Modi, Prime Minister of India. She now works at AIA Singapore as a customer service agent from 9 to 5, and she can answer any query you could have about the company or its services. It doesn’t matter if you’re speaking Japanese, German, English, or any of those other languages. It’s strange to talk of a robot with a personality, but Nadine’s success is all because to the programming that gives her one. What else could it be but a bunch of cogs and wires? Nadine, however, may adapt her demeanor to the current dialogue by using her 27 degrees of facial and upper body mobility.
Geminoid DK humanoid robot
Humanoid robots can’t just look, sound, and act like robots; they need to be us. A humanoid robot called Geminoid DK was created by researchers at Aalborg University in Denmark. You could be forgiven for mistaking Geminoid DK for a real person, as the robot was designed to mimic the professor’s motions and facial expressions with uncanny accuracy. They collaborate with a group of Japanese scientists to create a head and body that look as much like Scharfe’s as feasible. The professor’s own hair was used in the robot’s wig. The outcome is a terrifying degree of precision not seen in humanoid robots before. It took us a few days to get used to it, as one of Scharfe’s assistants put it: “when we saw it, we can’t stop staring at it.
Despite appearing human, a Geminoid is actually a robotic body. Geminoid gathers information about its surroundings from the cameras and microphones it has installed on its exterior. Although technically Scharfe is not the one experiencing the world through Geminoid; rather, the robot is controlled remotely, much like a telepresence robot. Sleeping, being online, having an idle lip, synchronising, and synchronising one’s face are the five modes of operation available in geminoid DK. Its Pneumatic actuators make it look more human than its predecessors by animating the eyes, forehead, eyebrows, eyelids, and cheeks.The robot’s entire face is under Scharfe’s command, a groundbreaking breakthrough that successfully crosses the uncanny Valley.
Atlas humanoid robot
Atlas is one of the most well-known robots in existence. Boston Dynamics, Atlas’s creators, published a video called “Do you love me” in which the robot does a variety of dance moves, including back flips. Its notoriety has grown, and many people have trouble accepting that it actually happened. Atlas is not only a very real robot, but also one of the most advanced of its kind. However, it won’t be able to learn your name like Nadine did. It’s unsettling how quick and flexible Atlas is. Gary Bradski, an expert in artificial intelligence, saw his 2013 debut and immediately declared, “a new species robot sapiens emerging.” Atlas achieves Precision motion by employing 28 hydraulically operated degrees of freedom.
It has a top speed of 2.5 metres per second and can run, jump, flip, and stop. Atlas, a robot, won the 2015 DARPA robotics challenge after successfully completing all eight tasks, which included moving down an industrial walkway, climbing an industrial ladder, and hooking up a fire hose to a standpipe and activating a valve. Such actions are quite complex and consist of many different steps. Although Atlas was designed as a study platform, it and similar robots may soon be helping with rescue missions by doing things like opening doors and operating machinery in hazardous environments where people cannot live. To sum up, Atlas can do nearly everything a person can, and perhaps even more so in the future.
Ameca humanoid robot
Ameca falls between the socially adept Geminoid and the physically nimble Atlas; it is true that a human-like artificial intellect need a human-like artificial body in order to mature and grow. Ameca is fluent in verbal and nonverbal human communication. The robot’s engineer at the manufacturing company posted a video showing the device pushing a person’s finger away. Ameca is cloud-based, unlike other platforms, and uses AI and machine learning to continuously improve and reap the benefits of the IT community’s latest insights. Ameca is designed with evolution in mind.
Because of its modular design, it may be easily improved over time. With its 17 motors, this humanoid robot can mimic virtually any human expression during conversation. America even uses hand gestures to emphasise her points. In 2022, Amicus was the show-stopping electrical device at CES. becoming a household name and a household robot icon. Elon Musk, developer of the Tesla bot, had one word of response: “Yikes.” It’s incredible that Ameca is the first robot to blur the boundaries between social and physical components of robotics. Robots can’t yet walk, flip, and sprint like Atlas just yet, but with the modular design, it won’t be long before you’re having a one-on-one conversation with Ameca.
Tesla humanoid robot
A Tesla robot Humanoid robots seem to be on an unstoppable ascent, but the next few years will determine whether they arrive to aid humanity or rule it. It’s obvious that Elon Musk is thinking about this. Despite nearly a decade of warnings about the dangers of AI and robotics. Elon Musk revealed In August of 2021, he purchased a Tesla. The species was remarkable, and the Tesla robot was able to move about in the human environment with ease. Invented with the goal of doing away with unpleasant, risky, or repetitive work. The first humanoid robot that does justice to the magic of science fiction. Mosque is obviously aware of the genre it belongs in. The Robot can only go at a maximum speed of 5 mph, allowing you to outrun it, and it is also underpowered, allowing you to easily defeat it. Optimus Subprime, as its name implies, is a kind and welcoming robot.
Optimus, as he puts it, is a “worker droid” with a broad range of capabilities. Initially, you’ll be tasked with tasks that are dull, risky, and repetitious. Simply put, it’s the kind of work that nobody wants to do. Since Tesla has had production delays in the past, many people are sceptical of the 2023 release date. It would completely alter the production and cleaning industries if it were ever constructed. Despite Musk’s claims that the company is moving away from the auto industry, Optimus may eventually become more important than the auto industry.
