CRONOS/ECCE1, the first anthropomimetic robot
CRONOS/ECCE1, the first anthropomimetic robot, whose body structure is based on a human. Built in 2005.
With its hand-crafted skeleton and complex rigging of artificial tendons, CRONOS was one of the first robots built with a human-like body structure. Humans spend their first few years learning how to use their complex bodies. Roboticist Owen Holland believes that this process is key to developing an advanced mind. CRONOS was built to explore whether a robot with a human-like body could learn to control its own movements.
