Designing Apollo, an Approachable Humanoid Robot
How do you inject humanity into a humanoid robot that is essentially industrial equipment, to produce a distinct design that is safe, friendly, intelligent, and capable? NASA-backed Apptronik tasked argodesign with this challenge, to create the final form of its Apollo robot. Join a fireside chat between two companies who worked closely together to pioneer a robot form that uniquely balances complexity and approachability. This session will go beyond the marketing speak to focus on the very hard challenges designers and engineers face in designing a humanoid robot.
