Eccerobot, A Robot Designed After the Human Body

ECCEROBOT

ECCEROBOT

ECCEROBOT is a research robot with a human anatomy-inspired structure of mechanical bones, joints, muscles, and tendons (demo video). The European research team developing ECCEROBOT believes the robot will have more human-like behavior than standard humanoid robots, simply because it is built more like a human. They are also investigating whether having a human-like structure will help the robot develop a more human-like artificial intelligence.
