Android robot. Cog, an android robot developed as part of artificial intelligence research to learn how the organisation of intelligence is influenced by having a body. Cog can co-ordinate its hearing and visual systems to pinpoint a noise source. The visual system can guide movements of the hand. Cog's hand has a touch-sensitive surface which allows the robot to classify objects that it is holding, adjust its grip accordingly, & tell when the object is slipping. Cog can be used to study how humans learn through interactions with other people. Its body shape and movements are designed to closely resemble a human so that people will naturally act towards it in a human-.
