Roboy shows off
Infineon is supporting researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) who are exploring artificial intelligence in robots as part of the project. The mechanical skeleton and muscle functions of the human body will be imitated with the help of motors, joints, wires, and cables. The aim of the Roboy project is to develop a humanoid robot with a body that is as similar to that of a human being as possible in terms of movement, cognition, and sensitivity.
ROBOY 2.0 moves smoothly, can recognize people and hold conversations. In the next stage of its development, ROBOY should be able to walk. With the aid of Infineon’s 60-GHz radar sensor XENSIV, it will then be able to recognize the surface below its feet and adapt its movements accordingly using highly sensitive sensors from Infineon.
