People-Carrying Robot To The Rescue

Researchers in South Korea show off their people-carrying robot that is designed for rescue missions or helping people with disabilities. They showed how a person sitting on the special seat on the robot holds the joy stick that allows the person to control the robot’s movements. It’s hands can grasp items and pick them up, imitating the exact movements of the person holding the controls.

Researchers at Korea’s Institute of Advanced Science and Technology created the “Big Biped”, which stands 2.2 meters tall and weighs 270 kg. Big Biped can carry a 70 kg passenger. This robot can be used as a means of transport when there are bumpy roads or stairs. It’s claim to fame is that it is carrying the torch at the 2018 Pyeong Chang Winter Olympics for part of the relay.
