The huge robot, which could well be filmed in Transformers, will be controlled by an operator in the cab of a cargo vehicle – it is located on a special mobile railway platform. The operator controls the giant’s body using a VR helmet and corresponding manipulators (the left and right hands of a person correspond to the left and right “hands” of the robot).
