In an attempt to find the optimal solution for cooling the internal parts of the robot during the execution of complex physical (and not only) jobs in order to prevent overheating, Japanese engineers borrowed a very useful skill inherent in the human body – sweating. This passive method of cooling the body surface was useful not only for the living organism, but also for the machine, which was demonstrated inventors JSK Lab, University of Tokyo on robotehnicheskoy Conference IEEE / RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS two thousand and sixteen) in South Korea in the form of a humanoid Kengoro robot.
to simulate sweating engineers with the help of 3D-printing and the technology of laser sintering ( DMLS) created a porous two-layer aluminum frame that is capable of optimally without allowing leakage, flowing cooling liquid. Thus, the 1.7-meter Kengoro weighing 56 kg can be wrung from the floor for 11 minutes without failure due to overheating of motors, which robot 108. According to the Japanese tests, innovation is three times more efficient than water cooling, but still inferior to the traditional panel radiator with active cooling. To work for half Kengoro days required deionized water cup
