Robot Suit HAL is a cyborg-type robot that can expand and improve physical capability. Same with "Robot Hand project" (Gifu)
Solution to handicap, aging, hiking, escalating or helping cleaning debris, plants (Fukushima?) or being tomorrow's new nurse or doctor assisting wounded personal?
HAL stand for "Hybrid Assistive Limb".
Japanese scientists of Cyberdine Corporation and Professor Sankai of Tsukuba University displayed HAL robot suit which improves mobility and enables the wearer to carry more. Three people enjoyed an unusual stroll wearing the robot suits in Tokyo's busy city center on a sunny summer afternoon. Japanese robotics company, Cyberdyne, said the hybrid assistive limb or HAL suits will help the injured and weak to get around. Here, the 3 users, 2 men and a woman came by subway to downtown Tokyo, walked in town without surprising the Japanese in the street, before to give a presentation to Japanese and foreign media. The suit also makes the mobility easier and increases user strength to carry heavier objects. The 10-kilogram (22-pound) machine belts at the waist, and has a battery and computer system at the back. The system also has sensors that pick up weak electric signals that are sent along the skin's surface to the brain. This allows HAL to help wearers move in the way they are thinking. The average walking speed with the assist of the suit is 1.8 kilometers per hour. The company began renting out the suits last October. The rental cost is 220-thousand yen (2,200 US dollars) a month.
Practically speaking, it is an updated robotsuit version. The idea is that when a person attempts to move, nerve signals are sent from the brain to the muscles via motoneuron, moving the musculoskeletal system as a consequence. At this moment, very weak biosignals can be detected on the surface of the skin. "HAL" catches these signals through a sensor attached on the skin of the wearer. Based on the signals obtained, the power unit is controlled to move the joint unitedly with the wearer's muscle movement, enabling to support the wearer's daily activities. This is what we call a 'voluntary control system' that provides movement interpreting the wearer's intention from the biosignals in advance of the actual movement. Not only a 'voluntary control system' "HAL" has, but also a 'robotic autonomous control system' that provides human-like movement based on a robotic system which integrally work together with the 'autonomous control system'. "HAL" is the world's first cyborg-type robot controlled by this unique Hybrid System. "HAL" is expected to be applied in various fields such as rehabilitation support and physical training support in medical field, ADL support for disabled people, heavy labour support at factories, and rescue support at disaster sites, as well as in the entertainment field.
You can now climb to a giant tree from 7 to 77 years old maybe? It also is a character future online games. But one thing, Professor Sankai of Tsukuba University does not want to see HAL involved in...: the war!
