The University of Bielefeld and the Leibniz Institute of Polymer Research, Dresden, have collaboratively designed and developed a spider-like, sleek robot called Hector or Hexapod Cognitive autonomously Operating Robot.
The control mechanism of Hector is based on the intelligence principle of insect brains. The mechanical insect contains a very light exoskeleton similar to an insect, which is made of carbon-fiber reinforced plastic shells. In order to make Hector more functional, the researchers have installed biologically inspired elastic joint drives, enabling the robot to execute essential tasks with ease.
The advanced and futuristic robot Hector is a part of the EU's special project, Embodied Motion Intelligence for Cognitive, Autonomous Robots, which is designed to be used in research and study the advanced autonomous walking in some selected labs in Europe.
