REEM-B: One Step Closer to a Humanoid Service Robot

Posted 26 Feb 2008 at 17:08 UTC by steve Share This

Davide Faconti of Pal Technology Robotics wrote to tell us about the introduction of their new humanoid robot REEM-B, which was first announced in December of 2007. REEM-B supercedes the older REEM-A robot. The company's goal is to create a humanoid service robot. REEM-B is closer to that goal and is able to walk dynamically, grasp objects, navigate within buildings. The 1.47 meter tall robot also accepts voice command and recognizes faces. REEM-B's 120 minute battery life is twice that of REEM-A. The REEM robots are developed in Barcelona, Spain by the Pal team. See the REEM media webpage for video of the robot in action. You can also find video of REEM-A and REEM-B on YouTube.

The launch material seems to have been taken down, but form what I saw, though, it seems like well enough of an improvement. I hope they didn't run into some sort of sudden problem with it.
