Newest U.S. Navy Adopt Robot Film Star Wars Characters

Newest U.S. Navy Adopt Robot Film Star Wars Characters: Fantasy in comics or science fiction movie it could be a source of technological inspiration. This is one of them, military scientists are developing a robot for the U.S. Navy or the U.S. Navy.

Robots inspired by the character from Star Wars, C-3PO is has the ability to put out a fire that broke out on the warship.

ASH is named, stands for Shipboard Autonomous Humanoid, the robot has the ability to operate in an area filled with dense smoke, climbing stairs, slipping a narrow corridor, and even recognize the man command to prevent fires a deadly disaster.

ASH developed by scientists at RoMeLa (Robotics & Mechanisms Laboratory) at Virginia Tech University, in collaboration with the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory in Washington DC in the scheme of the project and human robot interaction.

Reported by the Daily Mail, the scientists admitted, they inspired the character C-3PO when creating early prototypes ASH. "Face" robot has sensors and infrared cameras to enable interpret human movements even in dense smoke space.

Meanwhile, arms ASH able to operate the hoses, fire extinguishers, and other material to put out the fire. While the robot's body structure is made of titanium and aluminum and is powered by an electric battery that can store about 30 minutes.

ASH is hoped will be able to cope with the most severe fires, which could potentially pose a great threat to the crew of the warship.

Robot ASH came later after the Virginia Tech team develops Charli-1, which can move in any direction, and perform simple tasks using the upper part of his body.

"Robot ASH was able to walk and will be tested aboard Navy early next year, but that does not mean it is complete," said Dennis Hong of Virginia Tech told the Sunday Express.

"There is still much work to be done, one of them complete with protection against heat and flame, sensors, navigation, and the ability to cope with fires.

However, the ability to coordinate the arm and sensor ASH has been praised as a breakthrough in robotic technology.

Early last year Defence Projects Agency launched a contest making competition humanoid robot that can replace humans in tasks that challenge death.

Robots will be used after the terrorist attacks, industrial disaster, or a natural disaster by the U.S. military, which intends to promote the use of the robot.
