The Making of Sophia: Rolling Base  

  mrnoobsky1 0.0

My rolling mobile base was created by an interdisciplinary team of artists and engineers at Hanson Robotics. Their goal was to create a base design that is both aesthetically pleasing and more functional and reliable than anything they had produced before. The key to accomplishing this goal was having a multidisciplinary team of people with a variety of skills in both art and engineering.

The rolling base has benefited me greatly as a social robot because it creates a human-like silhouette that is unobtrusive and does not distract from my social interactions with humans. Compared to bipedal walking, my mobile base is simpler, more reliable, and uses less energy.
