Vietnam’s Intelligent Humanoid Robot IVASTBot

The Institute of Physics, under the Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology, has created IVASTBot, an intelligent humanoid robot. To master the intricacies of robot design and manufacturing, the team of researchers integrated a diverse range of multidisciplinary technologies, including precision mechanics, electronics, embedded systems, optoelectronics, image processing, and information technology.

Moreover, the team has embraced emerging technologies including artificial intelligence (AI), the Internet of Things (IoT), big data analytics, autonomous robot technology, and 3D printing. Specifically, the team has conducted research on novel algorithms that are integrated into a dedicated high-performance processor. These algorithms enable the robot to move autonomously and exhibit intelligent behaviour.

IVASTBot stands at a height of 160cm, weighs 50kg, and possesses a base with dimensions of 50cm by 50cm. The robot’s arm has three degrees of freedom (DOF) along with a wrist joint, while its torso offers two DOF. To facilitate multi-directional movement, the base is equipped with four DC Servo motors and four directional wheels.

The humanoid robot features a head with 2-axis movement, housing a camera that enables image recognition during human interaction. Its body structure comprises an inox frame for stability, load-bearing support made of aluminium alloy, and 3D-printed plastic components. For user interaction, a touchscreen display is integrated into the robot’s chest. To power its operations, the robot utilises a lithium battery and a rechargeable battery, providing a maximum operation time of four hours.

The IVASTBot exhibits an array of impressive capabilities, including autonomous functionality, the ability to avoid obstacles, and basic communication skills in Vietnamese using simple sentences. The robot possesses the capacity to access information from a pre-existing database, accurately recognise and store data obtained through human interactions, and execute appropriate communication actions in context.

This intelligent humanoid robot has vast applications across multiple fields. It can effectively serve as a receptionist, welcoming and engaging with guests at agencies, offices, restaurants and hotels, and even fulfil roles as medical staff, tour guides, bank, and airport support staff, as well as rescuers. The team, led by Ngo Manh Tien, expressed their commitment to conducting further research and enhancing the product’s features to continuously boost its user-friendliness.

The government of Vietnam has demonstrated a strong commitment to fostering robotics innovations through various initiatives and policies. Recognising the potential of robotics in driving economic growth and technological advancement, the Vietnamese government has implemented programmes to support research and development in the field. They have established specialised research institutes, and have actively encouraged collaborations between academia, industry, and research institutions.

Last month, the government launched the 2023 Robot Robotacon WRO, which gathered 500 teams to compete in two elimination rounds in Vietnam. The final round will take place in August 2023 in Hanoi to seek the most outstanding teams and individuals to represent the country at the world’s final round in Panama. An official said that the contest is expected to encourage students to explore science and sharpen their computing skills through practical and more assessable software.

Robotacon WRO, first held in 2004, has so far attracted more than 22,000 contestants, ranging from 6-19 years old from more than 60 countries. Since 2016, Vietnamese teams have achieved many impressive achievements at World WRO competitions, including three silver and eight bronze medals.
