This humanoid robot makes perfect human faces, IT News, ET CIO
In a video posted to YouTube, the robot called “Ameca” displays various human expressions, such as appearing to “wake up” from sleep, while its face shows confusion and frustration when it opens its eyes.
When awake, ‘Ameca’ starts looking at her hands and arms, opens her mouth and raises her eyebrows, just like a human does.
At the end of the video, Ameca smiles and extends a welcoming hand to the viewer.
According to Engineered Arts, the humanoid bot is currently unable to walk and is working to give it the ability to do so in the near future.
“Designed specifically as a platform for the development of future robotic technologies, ‘Ameca’ is the perfect humanoid robotic platform for human-robot interaction,” says the company.
The “Ameca” hardware is a development based on its own research in humanoid robotics and built on its advanced “Mesmer” technology.
Engineered Arts is scheduled to exhibit “Ameca” at CES 2022 in Las Vegas, US in January.
“Human-like artificial intelligence needs a human-like artificial body. Artificial intelligence and machine learning systems can be tested and developed on Ameca alongside our powerful robot operating system ‘Tritium ‘”, the company said on its website.
