Students in India have unveiled a rechargeable battery powered robot which provides an alternative to rickshaws
Four students from Surat, India, made a robot that can walk like a human and even pull rickshaws, a passenger cart used for transportation.
It took them 25 days and thousands of dollars to build the robot. Student Maurya Shivam says the robot is powered by a battery and can be recharged.
“This is our prototype which we have tested on the road. And this is not completed yet, work still remains to be done on its leg, hand, head and face,” said Shivam. “We have tried to create it as same as how a normal human walks tells another student.”
