The Cognitive Robotics Center at KIST, headed by Dr. Bum-Jae You, has invented the humanoid Mahru-Z, which operates home appliances and is controlled by a remote control system in real time.

Developed with highly advanced technology, Mahru-Z has the ability to walk with self-regulation and is able to find targets to operate various household machines using its own two hands and feet. Mahru-Z can also imitate a human's full body movement using a motion-capture system.

Different robots can be assigned to different tasks. For example, Mahru-Z can put fruit in a basket and place it on the dinner table, while Mahru-M, which has an advantage in mobility, can locate the owner and bring him the fruit directly. 

Mahru-Z is compelling because it created the market for working service robots which are able to live and interact with humans. "Utilizing its real time remote control technology, Mahru-Z can be used under conditions that are too difficult or dangerous for humans," Dr. You said.

 

 

The research on cognitive humanoid robots will be expanded to develop a working cognitive service robot which will be able to assist with household chores as well.
