In Japan, a humanoid robot HRP-5P has been developed, which is capable of independently recognizing objects, navigating in space, performing assembly work and others tasks related to hard physical labor.

Japan is worried about the decline in fertility, because in the future this is will lead to a shortage of labor resources in construction, mechanical engineering and other industries. To maintain the economic potential, AIST together with several private industrial and research organizations developed a model of a humanoid HRP-5P equipped with artificial intelligence, advanced information systems and sensors.

The construction robot has a sturdy metal body, weighing 101 kg and a height of 182 cm.The body of the HRP-5P has 37 degrees of freedom, but in order to better imitate human movements, the developers have significantly increased the range of motion his mechanical joints. It is able to hold and move bulky items, such like drywall and plywood sheet.

Thanks to neural networks and machine learning, the robot independently detects and distinguishes up to 10 tools, determining which one it needs right now. Recognition accuracy is 90% even in low light and low-contrast backgrounds. In progress system constantly learns and replenishes the database new images. For high-frequency augmented reality markers are used to define working areas.

FROM help sensors on the head, it receives a three-dimensional image of the surrounding space with a frequency of 0.3 Hz, and when the view is blocked by a held object, the previous movement route is used to move, which the can be instantly corrected in case of slipping feet. The HRP-5P programming code consists of about out of 250 thous. lines of code. Thanks to its solid construction and flexibility, it is capable of lifting enough heavy objects.

Companies are planning use development for work in difficult and hazardous conditions. In addition to construction, robots can use on construction sites, shipyards, aircraft structures.

Earlier we wrote about Tom, what company ABB invests $ 150 million in the construction of an automated factory of the future, in which robots will be build robots.
