Japan makes giant construction robots controlled by virtual reality, cool like the Jaegers in Pacific Rim
In the field of robot manufacturing, Japan has always been a force that many other countries have to respect. And recently, they continue to prove this, when the railway company JR West revealed the project of robots that are fully controlled by VR.
They are called “heavy machinery puppets” (roughly translated: heavy machine puppets), with designs like stepping out of the Hugh Jackman movie Real Steel. These robot models are used to assemble equipment, overhead parts of the railway system.
For a country that has successfully built a life-size Gundam model, it is only a matter of time before humanoid robots become effective assistants in all industries and fields. However, this time, Japan continues to amaze the world when integrating virtual reality (VR) technology into its products in the most sophisticated way.
According to My Navi News, the movement of these railway robots will be linked to the operator through VR glasses and handles. This allows humans to feel the weight of the metal that the robot is carrying, helping them be more proactive in controlling the situation, offering flexible handling options, and especially ensure your own safety.
Besides, JR West also affirmed that the process of operating robots with VR will be simplified to a minimalist level, very easy to learn and practice. However, saying that does not mean that it is as simple as a video game, when you just need to press 1 or a few button combinations and you’re done!
In addition, this company also conducted a test of a prototype model in April, but it is probably not until 2024 that their construction robots can officially go into operation.
The movement link between humans and machines through VR can’t help but remind many people of the blockbuster Pacific Rim by director Guillermo del Toro. As long as we don’t have to go through a series of traumatic moments to operate these robots like on the silver screen, it is clear that this will be one of the highly anticipated Japanese breakthroughs in the near future.
