Cover Photo: U.S. Department of Energy/Science Photo Library/Photo Researchers Manny, a robot mannequin, was built at the Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest Laboratory. The robot was designed to simulate human movements, sweating, and breathing in order to test protective clothing worn by firefighters and handlers of hazardous material. Protective clothing is stressed by Manny’s 40 joints, which move with the help of hydraulic actuators. Water is conducted through tubes to simulate perspiration, while breathing is imitated by introducing moist air through the nose and mouth to produce human-like chest motion.
