Hyundai Launches a Wearable Robotic Exoskeleton
  • Hyundai is going to launch a Real Life Robotic Exoskeleton

A new wearable robotic exoskeleton is here to help you in daily life.

Remember the robotic exoskeleton worn by Dr. Ripley in order to fight the alien queen in “Aliens”? Well, that exoskeleton is certainly coming to life this year. 

Hyundai has been working on the exoskeleton model for a long time and it is time when they will launch one. This robot has the quality that it is wearable by the user and will help in all the heavy chores they want to do. It won’t be designed for a battlefield but is designed to help soldiers and workers to enjoy some ease at work. 

This wearable robot is nothing short of an Iron Man suit. It will help the wearer lift heavy objects with a lot of ease and will make them transport the lifted objects from one place to another as well.

This robot can help one lift up to hundreds of kilos in one go. Initially it has the capacity to load over 50 kilograms and travel long distances with this weight. 

It is an upgraded version of a “wearable walking assistant” which was specially designed for the people who could not walk. The light weight walking assistant is worn by the user. While on the other hand the Hyundai exoskeleton wears its individual who handles it as it is bigger in size.

Hyundai has announced in a blog post that this innovation is a part of the “Next Mobility” system. This project will allow people to move freely without any restraint. Hyundai is presenting this project as a means of transportation.  

Meanwhile companies like Daewoo and Panasonic are referring to this technology as a helping agency in factories. Another company DARPA is building exoskeletons to help out the army in their missions. Along with that they are also aiding them to be a means of rehabilitation for amputees.
