HECTOR Robot with Insect Like Morphology Developed for Cognitive Skills

The HECTOR robot or Hexapod Cognitive Autonomously Operating Robot with its ant like configuration and six legs was made from some extremely intelligent engineering and a robust exoskeleton made from carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) for smooth operation.

HECTOR robot or Hexapod Cognitive Autonomously Operating Robot

This lightweight robot with a weight of 12 Kg can carry almost 30 Kg. The researchers at the University of Bielefeld’s Cognitive Interaction Technology (CITEC) in Germany were responsible for developing HECTOR. It was developed for the study of motion and cognitive skills and to be a problem solver, analyzing obstacles and planning ahead as a part of the multi-disciplinary Mulero Project. The robot has the scale like morphology of a stick insect.

Hector’s aim is to enhance the movements of the robots in the future. This is essential as robotic mobility must keep up with cognitive powers to make robots a part of everyday’s purposeful activities. The performance of the robot is definitely affected by both cognitive powers and robotic mobility especially in situations when a robot faces a challenging task and needs to find a solution methodically.
