Retro: Navy Develops Firefighting Humanoid Robot

The main reason I added this Robotics Department to THEI is I believe that the Controllers are going all out to secretly finance and eventually own human type robots to replace humans as their workers and servants.   This story from March 14, 2012 is a big step in that direction. Just one part on the road to their plan of reduceing the population of the earth.. . . EDITOR

For over the last 85 years, the Naval Research Laboratory has served both the Navy and the country in keeping up with, and developing, the technological challenges of the world. So, it shouldn’t be surprising that they have recently unveiled a firefighting robot.

The Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) have recently commissioned “an interdisciplinary team to develop a humanoid robot that could fight fires on the next generation of combatants.”

A humanoid robot “was chosen because it was deemed best suited to operate within the confines of an environment that was designed for human mobility,” and will be able “to move autonomously throughout the ship, interact with people, and fight fires, handling many of the dangerous firefighting tasks that are normally performed by humans.” . . .

Scientists at the Navy Research Laboratories in Washington, D.C., work every day to create and test robots, including a humanoid robot that can extinguish fires.

I don’t think this is the same humanoid firefighter… at least I hope not. . . EDITOR


Humanoid Robot Works Side by Side With People

from Science Daily

ScienceDaily (May 22, 2012) — The first robots reached the world of industry over 60 years ago. Since then, for security reasons, they have performed their work isolated in cages, and that prevented collaboration between workers and machines. The research centre Tecnalia Research & Innovation is embarking on a new era by incorporating into European industry the first robot capable of working shoulder to shoulder with people. There are two aims: to improve the capacities of the workers in conditions of safety; and to increase the competitiveness of the factories in international markets. For this it has the robot Hiro, Japan’s most closely guarded secret in recent years in the sphere of industrial robotics. . . . Read Complete Report
