It’s called a new humanoid robot Alex Submitted by the company Promobot During the international exhibition “Innoprom” which was held between July 6 and 9 in Yekaterinburg, Russia. The robot will start serving the public In the coming months in the multifunctional center of state and municipal services in Yekaterinburg.
Promobot Director of Development, Oleg Kivokurstsez, explained what Alex’s work will consist of: “The client arrives in an empty window, where the bot performs the necessary manipulations with the documents. Alex is connected to other devices and services, so he can scan documents and form a statement based on this. Then he signs The visitor is on the papers, and the robot scans them and sends them to the information system. In addition, the device can advise on services, print vouchers and memos.”
Alex can also reproduce more than 600 different types of human micro-simulations thanks to technology and design developed by the company.. This allows you to copy a person’s facial expressions, such as moving eyes, eyebrows, and lips, communicating, and answering questions.
However, even though he even has faux leather with pores and wrinkles, Alex still makes some unnatural movements and has a large round camera on his chest that reveals him like a machine.
The chairman of the company’s board of directors, Alexei Yuzakov, stated six months ago that the goal of this initiative is Generate greater trust toward machines that perform certain types of jobs that require social situations.
“It turns out that the robot has received the most positive feedback from customers. That is, the ideal formula for providing services is the appearance of the person as well as communication through a robot script. A man will never speak like a robot, but a robot that looks like a man is very close,” said Yuzakov. “.
Alex’s prototype is based on Alexey Yuzhakov himself, who took 11 silicone impressions of his face in order to digitize a 3D model, in which facial expressions were modeled.
The authors of the initiative explained that robots’ faces are always wider because silicone is thicker than human skin, while they look more mature for the lack of muscle strength.
