8. SOUNDBITE 1 - Quentin Helaine, co-manager of TechLab at Mines Nancy (male, French, 17 sec): "The dog is man's best friend, so my own belief is that a robot dog, at least a four-legged mobile one, is the best solution to make it versatile in very rough terrain. The humanoid robot works but brings other constraints of mobility."
"Le chien est le meilleur ami de l'homme, donc ma croyance à moi, c'est de dire qu'effectivement, un robot-chien, en tout cas mobile à quatre pattes, est la meilleure solution pour le rendre polyvalent dans des terrains très accidentés. Le robot humanoïde fonctionne mais apporte d'autres contraintes de mobilités."
