Mechanical Samurai Robot Katana Fight

Today’s industrial machines and robots are capable of extremely intricate movements. Swiss ABB has created two katana, aka Japanese sword, wielding robots that maneuver through a series of fight sequences and showcasing the extremely precise movements of which today’s smart machines are capable. The robots were created for a recent trade exhibition of automated machinery.

ABB’s katana fight involves two industrial robots using authentic Japanese swords. The fighters touch sword points, attack, defend, and mirror each other’s moves. While all moves are pre-programmed, it will not be long before these fighters are able to dynamically defend and attack creatively in response to opponent movements.

ABB manufacturers industrial robots and is at the forefront of the development of artificial intelligence in the industrial marketplace serving a wide range of industries.
