A robot “avatar” was created in the USA

In the laboratory of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology developed the robot The Hermes. It can duplicate the movements of the operator and transmit tactile signals to it.

The very principle of the work of The Hermes can remind the plot of the film “Avatar”: a person acts as a controller of the robot, and the mechanism repeats the movements of the operator. The one who controls The Hermes can make him stretch his hand or squeeze the brush, the robot will repeat not only the movement itself, but also its speed and strength.

Also, The Hermes gives the operator "feedback": a special platform is mounted on the waist of a person, which "pushes" the body forward or backward. Moreover, the platform applies a force comparable to that which affects the body of the robot. This allows the operator to understand how stable his “avatar” is at the moment, and to notice the moment when he risks losing his balance.

The creator of the robot, Albert Wang, who also worked on the project of the running Cheetah robot, decided that it would be too difficult to teach the robot to make the right decisions quickly in an unpredictable situation. Therefore, the person’s “instinct” helps to respond to external challenges instantly as the “brain” of the robot. The robot also performs the role of "muscles", much stronger than human.

The Hermes can be used, for example, to extinguish fires: he knows how to use an ax and break open the doors without endangering the rescue people. In addition, in the event of an attack on him, thanks to “human” reflexes, he will be able to quickly navigate and “give up”.
