More Human Than Human : Reem B

Back in March 2008 we wrote about PAL Team from Spain and their second generation humanoid robot called Reem B. Recently another video came up about Reem B and its abilities which separates it from the small crown of humanoid robots. Some of the abilities are:

  • Walking speed of 1.5 Km/h
  • Battery power that lasts more than 2 hours of use
  • More motors and joints that enable Reem B to perform more complex movements
  • Able to lift up and carry loads up to 12 Kg
  • Able to recognize and manipulate household items
  • Face and voice recognition
  • Ability to create maps of it surrounding environment
  • Ability to perform autonomous path planning and obstacle avoidance

These are just a brief glimpse of what Reem B may accomplish. The official presentation of the Reem B will take place within a week or so at Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. We will get more details of this interesting humanoid robot soon after the official presentation takes place.
