"Will you take me, please?" Robot Matilda asked in a sweet robotic voice. But she was not a typical tracker who stands on the road and waits for her to stop. Matyldo was more likely to get people to each other.
On the afternoon of Wednesday, he arrived at Pelhrimov, destination of his trip. "It's a bit bloody, but it's fit to record because the recording conditions have been met, Matylda's electronics is running, it has a leg that broke the gears on some servo motors because of its limited mobility, but it works," he said. robot engineer Michal Seidler.
The record is that he will be the first robot to achieve the intended goal.
Points along the way
Matyland could learn new things when people took her home and joined her computer. Www.robot-matylda.cz is an example lesson on how to handle the robot.
On the T-shirt, Matylda had addresses with the places he was about to visit and the place of destination. If a square was checked at an address, that means it was already there.
She went to the pub.
One of his temporary guardians was also Mr Jan Zahoř from Holysov near Pilsen. He stayed home for a while before catching another guide on the way. And she had an unusual night with him.
"We were very sorry for having Matyl sitting at home so we took her for a beer in a bar, a drink and a lot of people to have people with her and it was great. I did not expect the man to fall in love with so little time, "Zahor said enthusiastically.

According to Mr. Zahore, the environment responded positively and naturally, and was a surprise that many people knew about the project. Some of them came to see Matylda at the bar, as well as on purpose. However, our stay at the Matyls pub was tired and had to be recharged. "When we were still driving from the bar, we recharged the battery and in the morning, when it was morning, we turned off the solar energy," Zahor said.
"Someone tried to get her out of the car seat, sifting through her legs." Once something breaks, it can get stuck in. I think it's a relatively good week outside, "said Matylda Zahor.
To protect against theft, Matylda was using a GPS locator and a camera. Its location has been regularly published by the company. She was loading through the solar panel, but people could help her with the autogas socket. He is logically tired (unloading) on the roads.
She also had a car kit that helped with basic repairs.
As early as possible for Pelhrimov
Another guide on the path of Mathilda was Lukas Cermak, who was very curious to know how this would go with Mathilda, whether it was good for people to take her to the target or destroy her or steal her.
All her movements were recorded on the page of Robotí hitch-hiker or We Do not Miss Panic – Towel with us.
