Robot of the Year 2009" 
  Tips 2009

Fast Running Robot!!
/ (Balancing Robot)

Japan - Moon Mission 2020
I have an additional idea to
make it run even faster...

If you use the "tripod" or Readybot concept for the
 up part of the Toyota Robot legs (enlarge and contract
beyond the human model or even a leverage or shock absorber effect);
it will allow him to run even faster while
 keeping the necessary stability:

2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12
13 14 15 16
17 18 19 20 21 22 23


 - The future of Humanoid Robots do not depends just on improving artificial muscles but it is very important to make special electric linear actuators for the legs (or a shock absorber mechanism between the servos to be able to change sizes on it ("enlarge & contract" beyond the human model) or other solutions to allow a better spring effect by running. It will be interesting to consider models feet "Toyota, Wabian-2 or Mark Ho" for little robots (Onishi Lab.)  1  2  3  4  5  6  7  8  9 . Or to build a heel mechanism with shock absorber(s). Or even consider the concept of claw for bipedal robots; for example. 1  2  3  4  5  6  7 . Plus lightweight but strong materials for the structure. Also better cylindric electric actuators for the joints (servos), will help.

Functional little hands (TK03-BloodKeit) 
(Robot Gabrio) are other key issue for the development of the humanoid robot industry. Robobuilder Gripper Hand  (Watch the link Additional Tech; up this website).

- So, to get better body structures will help the process of improving softwares for them. There are also other intelligent systems that you can develop without them but useful. Make a click on the link "The Humanoid Robot"; up this page.
- Processors (little computers) market; is already working well.
- There are two basic ways for building humanoid robots: similar to humans or with better (or worse) skills.  It is depending on your needs.
- The process of Alive Experimental Natural Transformation (not always Evolution of skills) to get pre-humans was: After getting out of the water (spine mechanism and frontal legs/arms already developed). First walking with four legs, second jumping on the trees (succeeding and/or falling), third walking with two legs
(succeeding and/or falling)
. The food (electricity for robots) was always everywhere but did require some skills or tools to get it! It will be important to consider those issues for improving the humanoid robots and/or Artificial Intelligent Systems; faster.
