T-Resilience Algorithm Helping Robot to Recover from Damage

Hexapod Robot


Most of the horror movies have the feature that Zombies and malfunctioned robots can go on scaring people even if they lose their limbs or legs. However, that was true for films not for real life. In reality, scientists have tried to teach robots to recover the damage as quickly as possible, but nothing seemed to work until the use of T-Resilience Algorithm. Researcher at the ISIR, Universite Pierre ET Marie Curie-Paris has developed this Algorithm.

This algorithm will help to resume work quickly even after going through a hazard. A damage recovery program for autonomous robots is very important, as sometimes they need to re-align its existing resources to accommodate its changed environment and situations. This formula will enable robots to discover any required modification to its mechanism. This will also facilitate to develop a compensation program for robots that accidentally loss its leg or other motor parts.

Like animals, if an animal gets hurt to its one limb it will try not to move that part of the body in order to save energy and avoid further damage. Likewise, robots with T-Resilience Algorithm will automatically decide which move is safer and which move will fulfill its programmed task.
