This very sweaty robot measures how heat affects humans

This very sweaty robot measures how heat affects humans

There is still much to be known about the impacts of extreme temperatures on the human body, but researchers can’t conduct risky experiments on people to find the answers they seek. But they do that with ANDI, a robot designed and equipped with technology that simulates bodily responses to heat, like sweating. ANDI’s sensors can measure variables that affect the human body’s reactions to heat  and related environmental conditions. Research leader Konrad Rykaczewski, an associate professor in ASU’s School for Engineering of Matter, Transport and Energy, part of the Fulton Schools, says ANDI can give us ideas on designing clothing or even exoskeleton backpacks to help wearers better endure hot conditions.
