Another factor that contributes to its movements is the gait tuning software which it can be programmed to do any kind of movements. Its movements can also be written in a form of C programming and to be downloaded to the PIC18f8720 on the controller board of REKs.
REKs are studied for application in human robot interaction domain. Software and hardware architectures encompassing a range of sensors including Ultrasonic Sensor, Tilt Sensor, Compass sensor and ECG/EEG sensors are currently being developed. A separate group of researchers are working on implementing walking gaits for REKs. REKs movements can be monitored wirelessly via Bluetooth.
REKs are productized for school children aged 12 years and above. This product allows children to even build their own REKs with the availability of the instruction manual in its package. They can programme it to do all sorts of actions that we have created for them all inside the manual. Sensors are also available for them to integrate it on REKs. So everyone can have fun with their very own robot in their home.
