Read "The Da Vinci Code," the people may know that Leonardo da Vinci was not only a painter, but also proficient in machinery.
500 years ago, Leonardo da Vinci use of wood in the knowledge base on human anatomy, leather and metal design out of the primary robot. According to records, this robot gear as a driving means is connected between the drive rod body, not only can do some simple movements, but also sound, because the interior is also equipped with automatic drum device. However, modern people can not determine whether it is Leonardo da Vinci made the robot, but according to its design touches can restore the personal nature called the world's first mechanical "armored knights."
Also the use of gears and clockwork principle, in the 19th century, Swiss watchmaker invented literate robots. In fact, including today's juvenile record passenger tutorial, many inventions still use gear transmission principle, the difference is more than a motor driven to do.
From the Renaissance to the time between the Warring States period, some of our inventors have devised a number of mechanical devices, such as Zhuge Liang early out "wood flow beasts of burden" machine with a carriage drive means for transporting rations. There are also terms invented by Zhang Heng drum trucks can drive and be automatically calculated drumming reminder.
Biologically functional machine Ap
According to Wikipedia, in 1738, French engineer Jack Johnson wearing Wacker invented a machine duck, it quacks, swim and drink, but also eating and
excretion. Only duck machine is mainly used for medical research.
Called the world's most advanced military robots, one of the Atlas robot
Separated from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1992 out of Boston Dynamics (Google has been received to hire) have developed a military robot Atlas can walk upright, and all-terrain four-legged robot "big dog", "Doraemon" and so on, it is amazing. The following diagram, which is the world's first military robots, is now serving in Afghanistan.
Atlas robot, 1.9 meters tall, with a sound limbs and torso, with 28 hydraulic joints, including the head of the built-in stereo camera and a laser rangefinder, in addition to karate, Florida Association of HCI researchers have even prepared a built-in software lets Atlas you can drive. Therefore, Atlas justifiably claim to be the world's most advanced robots.
Japanese entertainment robots
Asimo robot (ASIMO)
Mid-century, Japan has been committed to the development of humanoid robots. Initially, due to the labor shortage, cause the robot to Japanese industrial robot based; later due to an aging population problem is serious, then go to service and entertainment.
In 1969, Ichiro Kato, Waseda University Laboratory developed the first robot to walk with both feet. By 1980, industrial robots really popular in Japan - is a popular, non-degree development of other countries can be compared.
Famous Japanese robot has entered the year 2000, the company launched Hou Suoni robot "Aibo" (AIBO), Honda Motor Company developed humanoid robot ASIMO (ASIMO), the latter being able to walk close to human posture and run.
Astronauts to cosmic machine
Now familiar with the "artificial intelligence", "deep learning" In fact there will be a lot of research over the past three decades. With the arrival of the era of big data, data-based learning techniques to the depth of a breakthrough development, such as speech recognition, image recognition, human-computer interaction. A typical representative of artificial intelligence robot, there is IBM's "Watson", Pepper and so on. In future studies in robotics, deep learning is still a big trend.
