Researchers at SUPCON Robot Control Research Institute (a division of Zhejiang University that was also responsible for developing HaiBao), created this intelligent service robot in 2008. It moves autonomously, using ultrasonic range finders for obstacle detection, and can be controlled remotely by a human operator.
The robot appeared at the Hangzhou Science and Technology Exchange Center and made a trip to the Philippines, where it promoted science and technology. SUPCON also participated in RoboCup’s humanoid soccer league, and specializes in robotics accessories like omniwheels.
