Korea develops smart arm-wrestling robot

Professor Chul-Goo Kang and his colleagues at Institute for Robotics and Intelligent System of Konkuk University in Korea have developed an intelligent arm-wrestling robot.


Robo Arm-Wrestler automatically adjusts its strength for the challenger while diversifying the muscle-flexing pattern each time. The smart robot is also said to “consider its competitor’s attitude and reflects his will and tenacity in deciding who wins.”

The robot greets people when they are approaching by saying “Hello”, “Nice to meet you”, or “Please take a seat for a match”, and so on.

Professor Kang said, “Our achievement will allow the elderly to keep up their physical and metal health by utilizing the fun robot.”
