Humans walk upright, which is difficult to reproduce in robotic systems, but not impossible. In fact, many robotic systems and android types of robots do walk upright, but that’s not enough because we’ll ask them to run, jog, jump, and even exercise. Military advancements in robotics will require AI robots to run, fire weapons and balance as mortar shells, small arms fire and mines explode. All without missing a beat, falling over, or missing a target; not as easy as it sounds, but far from impossible. All of these factors present challenges for future robotics engineers as well as AI researchers and programmers who will design systems and algorithms to ensure that AI robotic robots perform as expected.
If AI robots are to work and help humans with the tasks assigned to them, they must know when to use which program to perform their actions stably. Robotic AI Robots will use different sets of procedures at different times to regulate their movements. We all know that when we run, neither of our feet actually touch the ground. When we walk, at least one foot or some part of our body is constantly touching the ground.
These two different methods of movement require robotic engineers to employ entirely different strategies. When walking, it’s more of a weight distribution issue, while when running, factors like foot position and angle are most important before taking the next stride. When switching from walking to running, another program must be set up in the first few steps before running the program to start. It’s amazing how complex it is to engineer in AI robotic systems what humans naturally do every day of their lives. Consider this in 2006.
