Looks like the robotics team at Drexel Autonomous Systems Lab, the same lab that acquired their very own version of KAIST’s latest robot earlier this year, have got it up and running (figuratively speaking). Daniel M. Lofaro of Drexel University has just posted a video on Youtube which shows the robot walking on a treadmill without a hitch. No word yet if Jaemi can run like his Japanese cousins Honda’s Asimo and Toyota’s bipedal partner robot, but I’m excited to see whatever it is he does next.
Jaemi HUBO is the American version of KAIST’s HUBO 2, which has been built by Drexel University thanks to a $5 million dollar, 5 year research initiative funded by the National Science Foundation. The robot has already made appearances on ABC news and briefly at a local museum. Video after the break.
