China develops spherical robot
font size    

After years' arduous efforts, the research group led by Professor Sun Hanxu from Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications have developed China's first spherical robot to which the country enjoys intellectual property rights.

The robot, a project under the National Natural Science Foundation, has reached world advanced level and passed the appraisal by experts.

Beijing University, as asked by the appraisal panel, examined the robots and determined that the robot is unprecedented both at home and abroad.

The robot laboratory of Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications adopted a brand-new, highly effective means of internal drive, under which the robot can move smoothly in straight line and arc, climb on slope of 20 degrees and realize rotation.

Standing still, the robot can start moving in any direction. The kind of spherical robot has broad prospects for application not only in education, scientific research, field operation and civilian transport but also in anti-terrorism and other state-of-the-art fields.
