Humanoid Jaemi HUBO Robot Works Out on the Treadmill

This story of yet another walking robot appears in several posts on the web.  One is at slipperybrick.com, another is posted on botropolis.com, and a third version is found on plasticpals.com.  Drexel University now has a walking robot that does his thing on a treadmill.   Daniel M. Lofaro of the Drexel Autonomous Systems Lab has just posted a video on You Tube which shows the robot walking on a treadmill.   Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) built the original version of this robot the HUBO.  HUBO is short form for "humanoid robot."  Jaemi HUBO is the American incarnation of KAIST’s HUBO 2, which has been built by Drexel University thanks to a $5 million dollar, 5 year research initiative funded by the National Science Foundation.  In light of the stories of Toyota’s running robot, this bot may have some catching up to do.  However, there is no doubt about which robot would win in the gym.

In between planning our demise and testing cycles and such, robots like to hit the gym just like you. And while this guy may not be fast, he's working on it
