A humanoid battle robot developed by the Russian scientists will learn to run and pass the obstacle course by the end of 2015, head of the Foundation for Advanced Studies Andrei Grigoryev told RIA Novosti.
“The combat android robot that looks like a human, according to our plan, will be able to run, pass the obstacle course and perform other actions by the end of the year. Its purpose is to work in highly dangerous conditions, where you need the presence of a human with remote management. The goal is the person to be in a normal situation, and the robot to work in a dangerous area,” – Grigoryev said.
According to him, the robot will be used for mine clearance and other dangerous tasks which do not require particularly precise operations.
