simulating how a person would move with protective clothing worn under real-life, dangerous conditions

PETMAN (which stands for Protection Ensemble Test Mannequin), is a Boston Dynamics robot specifically designed to test out the performance of protective clothing for use in hazardous environments.

Petman is used during a test for a chemical protection suit and gas mask:
Sensors embedded in PETMAN’s “skin” can detect chemicals leaking through the suit. PETMAN’s movements in this dress can help determine if the hazmat suit is adequately efficient in staying airtight in toxic environments. The PETMAN team provided this robot with a “micro-climate” inside the clothing

PETMAN represents an advanced robot with human-like, agile movements that impressively simulate how a person would move with protective clothing worn under real-life, dangerous conditions.
