AS GOOD AS
A HUMAN BODY
The human body is a marvel of engineering: it’s dexterous, strong, soft, and even self-repairing. Just imagine what a robot with these qualities could do for us!
THE HUMAN TOUCH
Roboy imitates the musculoskeletal system of the human body. It has thus muscles and tendons, just as we do. This at first makes the robot hard to control, but enables softer motions, better understanding of how we control our bodies and eventually robot-bodies that feel just like ours.
why we imitate biology
Compliant, musculoskeletal robotic systems offer several advantages, especially in situations where human and robot work in close proximity. A musculoskeletal design makes extensive use of elastic materials to emulate the muscles and tendons which enhance safety, dexterity and adaptivity in uncertain environments. It also allows reducing body weight and developmental cost, while at the same time increasing design flexibility.
Roboy for …
a project with many facets, there is one for you!
Musculoskeletal robots provide bio-plausible models of the human body. Whether you are a bio-mechanics researcher, a neuroscientist, roboticist or other researcher – Roboy is the only modular musculoskeletal robot on the market – we’ll build it for you, so you can focus on your science.
Studying is very much about learning theory, but later you’ll have to be able to apply it. That’s just what Roboy gives you: Imagine working in an interdisciplinary, thriving team, that works towards big and motivating visions. No safety-nets, full responsibility, full design freedom and a lot of fun (and free beer).
