One of the most prominent areas of focus in the robotics industry today is the design of more human-like robots. Giving human features to robots offers tremendous advantages compared to traditional designs; for example, some robots are now designed with human-like legs rather than wheels, which enables them to move more easily in dangerous environments and over obstacles.
“Prototypes of the ADDAM robot and the
robotic arm were built and performed
as predicted by the simulation with a
high degree of fidelity. The ADDAM robot demonstrated human-like walking
capabilities and met all of our other design
objectives. The robotic arm can lift an
object greater than 5 kg even though its
own mass is only 2.2 kg.” - YongKwun

Biorobotics in Kyusyu Sangyo University.
