Bullies beware. This new robot designed by Sarcos runs on new software that allows for it to keep its balance, even with an attempt to intentionally knock him over. The new robot is an attempt from Japanese scientists to create a bot that could have a more successful time integrating into crowds.
Special software makes use of sensors in the robots joints, marking the center of gravity, and calculating how much effort is needed to keep the robot upright when it is unbalanced. And we thought if the robots ever attempted world domination, we could just push them over to stop their advance. Be scared. — Andrew Dobrow
