Flying Humanoid Robot Hovering in Mid-air
Researchers from the Jet Power and Humanoid Robot Lab at the Guangdong University of Technology developed a humanoid flying robot that can hover stably in mid-air for more than twenty seconds by utilizing position feedback from a motion capture system.
This research can improve the efficiency of humanoid robots to perform tasks such as crossing obstacles or reaching high places during emergency missions.
- The robot has ten joints.
- Brushless motors and harmonic drives are used to actuate the joints.
- Design is based on thrust vectoring.
