Honda has showcased a prototype robot called E2-DR, and it is designed for disaster scenarios.
There are certain requirements a disaster response robot must meet, dexterity being among them.
Honda’s new robot prototype demonstrates such abilities, performing actions like a climbing a ladder on video for everyone to see.
The prototype was recently demonstrated on video by Honda R, which also published a paper titled Development of Experimental Legged Robot for Inspection and Disaster Response in Plants.
The plants in that case refer to manufacturing plants, e.g.
To operate in environments like that, a robot must possess the ability to operate with 3D movements, such as climbing a vertical ladder or climbing up a step ladder.
