Ecce

Ecce Robot is the first humanoid robot whose movement is quite similar to the human one. Developed by a team of scientists at the University of Zurich, Ecci, is short for Eccerobot. Ecce in Latin means Lo or Behold.

The anthropomimetic robot liberates the barriers found with the robotic metallic structures of humanoids by creating replicas of human bones, tendons, muscles and joints as well as the associated mechanism.

One of their first breakthroughs was the anthropomorphic tendon-driven arm. This was to show how robots will be designed in the future to best interact with human beings. ECCEROBOT is one of the most famous robotic projects in the EU.

Most advanced of all Robot also has a brain with the ability to correct its mistakes – a trait previously only seen in humans. If, for example, a movement is causing him to stumble or drop something – the information is studied and analysed to avoid making the same mistake next time. Rolf Pfeifer, who is director of the laboratory for artificial intelligence at the University said ‘It opens up a lot of possibilities but in particular it will help us to understand better how the human moving apparatus works – a complicated task.”
