Robot put to the test shooting hoops
09.29.2017

    The latest robot developed by Songjiang-based Comau Shanghai Engineering has demonstrated its basketball shooting skills in test demonstrations against a regular player.

    The Racer7-1.4 competed against Song Hejing, a Guinness World Record holder, for three-pointer shots. They were required to shoot as many as possible in two minutes.

    The robot was able to notch a narrow win due to its flexibility and stability.

    To get the robot to this stage, the research team went through exhaustive tests and reprogramming. The process took into account the robots weight and technical precision.

    After adjustments to arm proportions, speed and grip, the Racer7-1.4 was assessed to be suitable for multiple work purposes, including carrying, punching, bending and material selection in the factory.
