Italian engineers have created one of the strongest robots in the world - the four-legged HyQReal with autonomous drive. To demonstrate the capabilities of the new machine, an experiment was conducted at the Christopher Columbus international port in Genoa. Video posted on the web. The footage shows how a robot, quite similar to a headless dog, not only moved the liner weighing 3.3 tons, but also dragged it along a strip of several meters. At the same time, the weight of the HyQReal itself is less than 130 kg, and the length is a little more than a meter. According to the developers, the robot uses a lot of innovative solutions and materials. So, special rubber handles at the ends of the "paws" of the device provide enhanced grip. Engineers have been working on this robot for 12 years. The most advanced model participated in the current experiment. The creators of the machine note that the robot is created to perform work with which a person cannot cope. For example, when dismantling buildings, searching for people under the rubble and inspecting unsafe structures.
