NEXI - Facial expression Robot

An invention of recent times and MIT Media Lab is a new robot, which can show different expressions of the face itself Such "inclination eyebrows in anger" or "increase Surprise" and show a wide range of expressions face of it, when you communicate with people.

This result and the latest in Robotic called Nexia, such as customized and future generations and Other robots, designed for a wide range of personal requirements and robots and human-robot teamwork.


Headaches Nexia face was designed and has an innovative design Xitome Design and design and development company specializing in developing and Robotic. Expressive robotic began with a neck mechanism sporting 4 grid freedom (DOF) at the base, plus pan-tilt-course deviation from the scalp. The mechanism is designed in time to mimic human movements with speed. To Nexia is designed specially for use, viewing eyebrows, eyelids and to formulate a lower jaw and helps to express a wide range of different emotions.

Nexia frame is advanced and well. It was developed by Robotic Laboratory perceptual UMass (University of Massachusetts), Amherst. This framework is based on uBot5 and robot cell. Base cell can balance on two wheels Dynamics. Nexia gilt arms can weight a and up to 10 kg and sprayed plastic and the chassis can detect any human contact.

Cynthia Breazeal: The Project Manager

The project was led by Cynthia Breazeal Media Lab, the one pointed out EKSPERTO Robotic known to stop by Fat expressive robots. Professor and "Associate of Arts and Sciences MIT Media. And he called his new product you (phone, skilled, social) robot MDS.
