【Shanghai Daily】Local university unveils its ‘baby elephant’ robot

November 08, 2012      Author: Liang Yiwen

UNIVERSITY lab findings and cutting-edge technologies are widely applied in our daily life, experts said yesterday at the ongoing China International Industry Fair in Shanghai.

Shanghai Jiao Tong University has developed a "baby elephant" robot that can carry equipment weighing up to 100 kilograms into disaster sites that rescue teams can't access.

The university said China has entered the first-tier countries in terms of developing four-legged robots.

University lab findings are favored at the fair, held at the Shanghai New International Expo Center. Twenty-two universities signed cooperation contracts worth 853 million yuan with companies at last year's fair.
