In this high resolution
picture that was made by the well-known photographer from Valladolid and graphic correspondent of
"The Country", Agustín Cacho, you can appreciate the general aspect and the detail of the proportions and size of this impressive ROBOT.

radio station console. Reformed for manual or automatic remote control, with
serial data input connection to the control and programming PC.
PC for control and automatic programming of the robot's
functions, the voice, the movements, the
batteries state, images and sounds reception, etc. The whole system can be automatically controlled with remote control.
I will I try to describe this amazing robot. Don't you think it is? Well, that is at least what those that have seen it
There is not doubt that it is the most similar thing to what most of the people understand popularly
as ROBOT, in other words, a machine with human aspect, with a
body, arms and hands that catch things, head, eyes that move to look and... that
moves... that speaks!... that
he listens to you and he also answers to your questions with metallic voice!
What a problem to make that kind of machine...! It is necessary to solve many technical problems of
mechanics, electricity, electronic... it won't be easy, it is also necessary much time and money and
both things aren't really abundant for me ...
Perhaps if I make some planes and some sketches... it could be possible then...
Hummm... we will see!"
This was something
that I thought about time ago, above the year 1.993, but the thing is that
it is there finished and working, the robot that came to be called Seguritron .
"I cannot say very well
the reasons that move me to attack such challenge (neither you ask me) it doesn't care but I assure you that it was not anything easy to make this
machine and here I present to you the result."
any delay, in a more literary way, I introduce you to this beautiful robot and
he will describe himself:
me, SEGURITRON, an experimental ROBOT."

gear box with chain transmission. 30º degrees of inclination. I have for this
an hydraulic shock of compensation of force."
"My arms can move them in three axes: The turn of the shoulder has 250º degrees with elastic compensador. The elevation of the shoulder of 90 degrees with hydraulic
elbow movement is also of 90º degrees. All these movements are performed by means of
gear boxes, with final chain transmissions.

close. I can catch objects
of different shapes and weights. I have an Electronic Torke System for

"My head is mechanically one of the most complex elements and it provides the following
movements: 180º degrees

My eyes are blue, shinny and three-dimensional, I can move them horizontally by means of a micro servo. The
eye lashes oscillate vertically by another servo motor. The main speaker of the
