Human-Sized German Workerbot Is Programmed to Be Happiest When It Stays Busy


A new cheerful factory robot aims to keep European industry competitive by working alongside humans, smiling when it accomplishes a task or when its bosses ensure it stays busy. The pi4_workerbot, developed at Fraunhofer labs, has fingertip sensitivity — it completes the perennially difficult robot task of grasping an egg — and a variety of facial expressions.

It is equipped with three cameras and two arms and stands as tall as an average human, so it can be seamlessly integrated into assembly lines, according to Fraunhofer’s Research News.
