Japanese researchers have developed a robot trainer for volleyball players

Japanese researchers from the University of Tsukuba and the Japanese Volleyball Association created robots with three pairs of hands for training volleyball players, reports Popular Mechanics
“Training bots are three pairs of robotic arms that quickly move in front of the net and mimic the protection of the opposing team. In the real game, they are replaced by players whose task is to protect their half of the field from the“ spike ”of the attacking team,” the publication said .
According to English volleyball player Laura Woodruff, a spike is the most effective way to get points for the team, so the blocking player must never miss the ball.It is noted that the coach can, at his request, configure robots to work out a particular game situation. The robot is also able to imitate the opponent’s game styles, adjusted for design limitations. It can reach speeds of up to 3.7 m / s, which is higher than the speed of a human player when changing positions.

As tests, six players from the Japanese women’s volleyball team completed a robot training course for eight days. The developers plan to fix positioning bugs, adding to the machine the ability to independently adjust the position of robots in space.

In the future, the system will be presented at the IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation in Singapore, which will begin in May.

Earlier, the chairman of the Commission of Athletes of the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB), Zhiba, said that Russian volleyball players who won gold medals at the 2012 Games in London could use doping.
