University of Tokyo’s JSK Robotics Laboratory Researchers have developed a robot, named Kojiro that can mimics human movement. The scientists who have been working on Kojiro have equipped him with a human-like skeletal structure that allows him to move, twist and bend in natural human way.
Quite different from traditional robots, Kojiro uses lightweight motors, a sophisticated system of tendon muscle structures, sensors to track postures and two gyroscopes for robot balance to function.
Kojiro is still undergoing small and complex movemenent tests and scientists believe that in future Kojiro will be suitable for working in daily environment.
