In Japan, tested a volleyball robot

Specialists from Tsukuba University built and tested a robotic training complex for volleyball players
The device consists of three pairs of robotic manipulators that move from side to side under the grid. The device performs the functions of blocking players, writes New Scientist.
The system is equipped with three players who can move at speeds up to 3.7 meters per second. The system has already been tested in training by members of the Japanese women’s team. Six players trained with the robot for eight days, while some noted that such a training is different in sensations from a real game.

Interestingly, the device can imitate the playing styles of future rivals. In addition, the robot is able to recreate game situations by positioning its hands as they were located in the gaming moment.

“This is a very complex device with positive feedback from the players as a whole. It would be nice if we could find out how the system affects the quality of the game for athletes during the season,” said Luca Paolo Ardigo from the University of Verona, Italy.

In the future, the system is planned to be improved by adding motion sensors.
