Dr. Guero, a Japanese expert in the field of robotics, known for his work on programming small robots, so that these robots were able to perform some action, not very typical of this kind of cybernetic machines, for example, to ride a bike.
The machine was called PRIMER-V2, the robot cyclist is different in that it rests on two-wheelers and looks almost like a living person.
Looking at the robot in action, it can be compared with a child who has just learned to ride a bike and enjoys new experiences. The funny looks and the way it slows down – just pulls to ground their iron legs. If the kids will take his example, parents may have to buy their offspring boots with steel toes to save on sneakers.
The machine works on the remote control and the operator has to spend some time to get used to it. The most difficult trick, as the developers say, is to stop the machine, the hardest is to get the robot to squeeze the legs to the ground, and everything else is done very simply, it’s about the same as that to ride a bike.
