Scientists at Stanford University are developing the “mermaid mechanism”




Scientists in the field of robotics at Stanford University in the United States to develop a robot they described as a “mermaid mechanism” able to dive into the deep sea and access to places of difficult for people to achieve them.

Android scientists, who named it “Ocean One” OceanOne, to reach the wreckage of a ship and used it sank off the French coast in 1664. year was not able one of the accessed until about two weeks ago when he sent scientists “Android nymph” to retrieve the vase fruit grapefruit-sized grapefruit.

The scientists use to command the robot while diving techniques of virtual reality developed by a professor of computer science at Stanford University, Osama al-Khatib. Use Khatib, as he sat in a boat on the surface of the sea, steering wheel control b OceanOne, and said that the combination of human skills with a strong structure of fairy Android will change the concept of underwater exploration.

Khatib said the magazine Standford News last week: “Man can provide Android intuition, experience and cognitive abilities, while the robot can do things in a very dangerous area for humans without leaving the last place.”

It is noteworthy that difficulties such as supplies and the threat of air pressure to limit the capacity divers access to ancient shipwrecks and other objects in the depths of the seas. Therefore it believes that the success of OceanOne can broaden explorations under water for longitudinal and greater depths.

Motivation was behind the development of OceanOne desire to study coral reefs deep beneath the Red Sea, which can only be accessed by robotic submarines, the project aims Stanford University to combine human skills with durability submarines mechanism.

And owns Android nymph, which is similar to humans with respect to shape, human vision through two cameras from the front, while his hands full Masman Mvsalian owns with sensors for power relay the sense of touch to the hands of al-Khatib, using a process known as stereotactic reaction.

The robot operator can sense whether the body that Tltqth hands lightly or fragile or heavy or solid. Khatib says he can in the future provide the robot with sensors to touch.
