IIE Digital Desk : Scientists have developed a robot that can breathe and sweat, like humans, to help them understand the impact of soaring heat on people. The robot, called the EcoBot3, is designed to mimic the human body's thermoregulation system. It has a heat exchanger that allows it to cool down by transferring heat to the surrounding air. It also has sweat glands that allow it to release heat through evaporation.

The robot has been used to study the effects of heat on human performance and health. For example, researchers have used it to see how heat affects the ability to think and make decisions. They have also used it to study how heat can lead to heatstroke and other heat-related illnesses. The EcoBot3 is a valuable tool for scientists who are studying the impact of climate change on human health. As temperatures continue to rise, it is important to understand how heat will affect people's ability to work, live, and play.
