(2018•广州模拟)At Aizo Chuo Hospital in Japan, employees greet newcomers, guide patients to and from the surgery area，and print out maps of the hospital for confused visitors. They don't tanch breaks or even get paid. Why? They're robots!
Robots have long worked in factories, helping to build cars and electronic appliances. But today's robots don't just do the jobs of people－they actually look and act a lot like people.
Kansei, a robot from Japan, has a plastic face covering 19 movable parts. The robot can make 36 facial expressions in response to different words. Kansei shakes in fear at the word “war” and smiles when it hears the word “dinner”．
Researchers in Europe are going even further with iCub, a “baby” robot. They are teaching it to speak and hold conversations.
The ability to interact is crucial for robots that will one day work closely with humans, says robotics professor ChrisAtkeson. “This will require robots to understand what you say and how you are feeling and respond with appropriate emotions，” he told WR News.
Japanese scientist Minoru Asada agrees. He is building a robot called CB2 that Unit 3

Most of us are used to seeing traffic lights above eye level. Whether we are driving, biking, or walking, traffic signals help us know when to stop and when it is safe to proceed(前行)．
Crossing signs that flash“WALK”and“DON'T WALK” are placed at intersections (十字路口) to tell pedestrians when it is safe to cross a busy intersection on foot and prevent pedestrians from being struck by motorists.
Pedestrians may become impatient and attempt to cross against the light if they have to wait too long for a WALK sign. In addition, some signals do not allow enough time for pedestrians to cross an intersection safely.
The prevalence of people talking on cell phones is posing a new distraction (分神) however. Pedestrians who are talking on the phone or sending text messages are typically staring at their phones rather than looking for traffic signals. They are often too distracted, leading to an increase in pedestrian texting accidents.
The connection between cell phone use and pedestrian accidents is clear.
To combat the problem, two cities in Germany are trying an innovative (创新的) approach: installing traffic lights in the ground.
