Relevant person in charge, the effect of robot wizard looked forward, saying, “Although foreign tourists by the East Japan earthquake, has decreased, but want to use this opportunity to reverse the situation.
Japan after the earthquake, why not use the robot repair nuclear power plants?
If you want to send a robot, then, the first challenge is to enter the building. Robot professor of Tohoku University in Japan and IEEE members Satoshi Tadokoro in Sendai, said: “move, not only rugged terrain also includes gaps and obstacles on the road, there may be many human beings can cross the barriers, but, most of the robot , but can not cross these barriers. ”
The robot must be controlled remotely by the operator, communication is another challenge. Rely on wireless transmission is a problem, because the reactor was surrounded by thick concrete walls and metal. An alternative is the use of ropes, but the question is, will affect the range and mobility. Professor Christensen said: “Even if it is to use fiber rope, it is difficult to achieve a range of more than 2 km, therefore, must be in the vicinity of, deployment of personnel to operate the tool.”
Why not use agile humanoid robot, they can walk in the ruins, operating heavy machinery, fire and radiation can be tolerated, for example, Terminator-style robot?
Developed the world’s most advanced humanoid robot in Japan, far from reaching this level. Humanoid robot, recently made some progress, but still in the research phase of the project. They can walk, run, climb stairs, dancing, nimble operation. However, they can not repair nuclear reactors.
Georgia Institute of Technology, Christensen and Virginia technology companies in Hong recommendations: the use of unmanned machine, or UAV generated images. But the Japanese authorities may be the choice tends to be conservative, they preferred not to use the unmanned machine, because unmanned machine may crash, so that the situation was further deterioration of … [more]

For example, it can help the elderly and the disabled with walking, enhance the ability to walk, and can do down the stairs, and other actions.
When people want to exercise the brain through the motor nerve cells of neural signals to convey to the muscles, muscles and bones, it will react to. HAL, the principle is to read through sensors attached to the surface of human skin, human biological potential signal, and then in order to control the motors, issued by the wearer muscle action action. A result, HAL can help the wearer, in accordance with their own wishes, independent action.
HAL is the embodiment of a technology integration, it will be able to read the bio-potential signals, in accordance with the will of the actions of the “smart casual control system, and can make human action,” Intelligent Autonomous Control System “combined.
It is reported that, put on HAL, holding dozens of kilograms of items can be like carrying a few kilograms heavier items, easily. HAL application field is very extensive, not only in the field of welfare, nursing, independent action to assist the elderly and the disabled can also be extended to the factory of heavy manual labor, as well as disaster relief.
Since 1992, R & D so far, lower limb version of HAL, since November 2008, has been put into use in applications in Japan and the Nordic countries to the form of lease for hospitals, nursing homes and other welfare agencies. However, the systemic version of HAL in the Expo for the first time unveiled to the public, the price is undisclosed. According to the staff revealed that only the price of a mold, the equivalent of a Mercedes car.
In order to expand their businesses, Saibo Da Ying is expanding the plant, will be held in October this year, officially put into operation, then, will have annual production capacity of 500 to achieve the practical use of the systemic version of HAL.

Japan launched the “thinking” robots
Japanese researchers developed a computer program that can guide the robot to observe the surrounding environment on the Internet, do research, so that the robot through the “thinking”, to obtain the best solution to solve the problem.
Associate Professor, Tokyo Institute of Technology, Hasegawa, animal husbandry (phonetic), October 11, the application of this program the robots, like humans, experience, the acquisition of knowledge for solving new problems.
“Most of the existing robots, good in accordance with the preset programs, treatment, and perform tasks, we human beings are ‘real world’, but they do not know much,” Hasegawa said, “Our project aims to try and build a bridge connecting the robot and the real world. ”
Hasegawa such procedures, in fact, is an algorithm that allow the robot to analyze their environment, collect the necessary data, which will accept the information into a series of instructions.
For example, the installation of the “thinking process” of the robot, after receiving the instruction “pour”, this task will be decomposed into a series of skills previously learned: Hold the bottle, pour from the bottle, put down the cup. The robot does not preset to “pour” of this particular program, but design the multiple actions required to complete the instruction.
When faced with tasks beyond their ability to “think” robot, will seek help at the same time, the store learned information in order to respond to new tasks. The robot “brain” directly connected to the Internet, online, to find the necessary information, while filtering out irrelevant information.
The research team optimistic about the prospect of “thinking” robots that robot in the future, can be used for seismic exploration, traffic signal control may also be a good helper for housewife.
Chinese and foreign robot “competitive” Expo. May 2010
Imagine the future world, and ultimately, artificial intelligence. Shanghai World Expo, has become to numerous countries robot.
“Violinist”, “brain” and “Haibao”
Expo, the Japan Pavilion “violin playing robot”, rather “star”, so that visitors have seen it performed, full of praise. The robot with big black eyes, wearing a silver jacket, played after the first bow, and then left-handed violin, on the chin, right hand to lift the bow, and began to play. Action is delicate and graceful.
“It will rub the string!” Someone exclaimed. Many viewers with the beat, clap gently. A Chinese folk song “Jasmine”, the end of the hall a round of applause.
French Pavilion, 58 cm tall, the “brain”, some viewers called the “little genius”. According to the staff, this robot will be shadow boxing, dance, jazz, football, well versed and proficient in the language of more than 20 countries. Fortunately, the audience can see the “brain” of the brothers, stand in a row, the same time, the dance scene.
In the Urban Best Practices Area, Hangzhou, entrance hall, met blue robot “Haibao”. Just take a dedicated microphone, you can and talk to it, face the LCD screen will display real-time expression. For example, to hear “Haibao a smile,” it will grinned, “Ha – ha – ha. “Haibao” good poetry “Solitaire”, the pupils Tangyao Yu Suzhou, Jiangsu province, and it even on the five, not stumped it.
“Robot entirely possible that within a decade, into the home
Expo, there are a lot of “helper” robot. For example, in the Italian Pavilion, the robot will be house to house to collect the garbage.
Urban Best Practices Area of Shanghai eco-home “pavilion, the robot in the kitchen and serve later.
Puxi, Shanghai Corporate Pavilion, built a “robots kitchen. Control personnel, simply press a few buttons, cooks love, it will end pot, stir, add salt, a little vinegar, to produce delicious food.
“Robot is entirely possible within a decade, into the home, the first robot with a simple function of the monitoring, security, and then to more sophisticated entertainment, and domestic service-oriented development.” In the Control Group Institute of Robotics Division PROVENANCE of the general manager said.
At the Expo, a joint team from the control group Research Institute and Zhejiang University, was invited to develop more than 30 intelligent service robot, placed at the main entrance. These robots provide Expo information, public information, guide navigation and other various information consulting services for tourists, and can accurately identify the position of the guests, the number and direction of travel, automatically enter a welcome service status, will tell stories, tell jokes, Chat and the audience.
The robot is gradually approached the lives of ordinary people, the technology is no longer distant. Japanese engineer Tamai Bowen said. Three robots, climbing in the Japan Industrial Museum on the external wall scaffolding joints, set up a special chip, the action is more flexible, and wireless control, can help human freed from dangerous high-altitude operations. Life and Sunshine Pavilion, the robot HAL exhibited by the sensor attached to the surface of human skin, understanding people to exercise the body, “bio-potential signals and control the machine joints, muscles and users, consistent swing to help the action handicapped persons in accordance with the wishes of voluntary action.
Artificial intelligence, human-computer game?
“Everything begins with the World Expo,” Robot Design Expo, has a “bond”. 1985, Tsukuba, Japan Expo, the exhibition of special robots that can climb stairs, cleaning, mechanical parts and components segment, deck rust or for risk. At that time, Japan and the United States, while the introduction of feet, standing, walking robot, change the stereotype of the human believes that the robot “not practical”.
2005, Aichi, Japan Expo, multi-function robot, focus on appearance, that marks human society entered the era of the robot.
Now, the robot has been in the industry, daily life, war, and care has been widely used. Some scientists predict that by 2050, the Earth will truly enter the era of the robot.
Robots, no doubt more and more “smart”, some visitors worry about whether there will be a day, the power of the robot, strong enough to “man-machine confrontation” situation, and even beating humans?
The 30-year-old ZHU Xiao-bo, science fiction enthusiasts. He said that in recent years, the “Terminator” and “I, Robot” movie, the man-machine relationship, carried out a bold prediction. ZHU Xiao-bo that It had been filled with worship of new technology, but the practice has proved that a state-of-the-art technology, only the correct use, in order to benefit of mankind, the key in use.
