Technical feasibility

SECTION I: Testing



Has the R & D result been tested?






The following question is replied according to the reply in question 1


If yes



In what mode has the result been tested?

•             Prototype

•             Pilot Application

•             Alpha/BETA testing


Models were made only, for developing the different functions of the robot.




1b. Please describe and discuss the testing results


If no:



Describe what type of testing does the R&D result need?
Several functions of the motion were developed but the complete operation of a robot is still unsolved. The missing link of the R&D is the self-learning walking.


1d. What is the time needed for testing?
One year
1e. What is the cost needed for testing?
HUF 5 million

SECTION 2: Current Stage of Development



To what extent does the development team have technical resources for supporting the production of a new product? (Researchers, human resources, hardware, etc. )
The project owner has a workshop for the experimental development.



What are the technical issues that need to be tackled for full deployment, if needed?
Most of the motions can be modeled mechanically, but a basic question is the driving. The present models use electric drive (stepping motors, etc.)but some of the motions could be solved better with pneumatic and/or fluid elements.


What additional technical resources are needed for the production of this new product?
A background of pneumatic and fluid technology.



Overall assessment of the current stage of technical development.
A remarkable work was invested but the present state is just the beginning of the implementation of an idea.


SECTION 3: Deployment


Define the demands for large scale production in terms of
  • Materials
Basic parts of mechatronics, pneumatics. Plastic


  • technologies, tools, machineries
Mechatronics, pneumatic and fluid technology, electronics, information technology, etc.


  • Staff effort
A complete team of mechanical, electric and computer engineers




SECTION 4: Overall Assessment



What is you overall assessment of the technical feasibility of the research result?
The project owner is very ambitious and up to now he made a huge effort to develop a usable model of a humanoid robot. His achievements are good, but still have a lot to do.
