Meet The Russian Humanoid Robot, Fedor


Fedor is a new humanoid robot developed in Russia for the space program. Although the robot is being designed for space, the list of tasks it impressively performs in a recently released video makes it look like a late entry audition tape for the DARPA Robotics Challenge.

Our readers are familiar with the American and Japanese humanoid robots that competed in the DARPA robotics competition, like ATLAS, and how Valkyrie is being readied for missions in space by NASA. Now meed Russia's entry into the ranks of impressive bot - Fedor (Final Experimental Demonstration Object Research).

Fedor is a humanoid robot developed to help astronauts on their missions. As the video below demonstrates, the robot can manipulate tools, pick up objects, and even drive a car. If we didn't know any better, it looks like the developers were following the DRC handbook for task programming.

The video also shows that like the leader of the Russian republic, Fedor likes to keep in shape, lifting weights and doing a few sets of  push-ups.

According to Sputnik, Fedor will be adapted to a new manned spacecraft to undergo testing by 2021.
