THMA: The Robot That Could Help Us Beat Heatstroke

A new robot is being developed to study the effects of heatstroke on the human body. The robot, called the Thermal Mannequin for Humanitarian Applications (THMA), is designed to withstand extreme temperatures and simulate the physiological effects of heatstroke. The THMA is being developed by researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. The robot is equipped with sensors that measure its core temperature, heart rate, and sweat production. It will help researchers to better understand the effects of heatstroke and develop new ways to protect people from this deadly condition.
