FEDOR or Feodor (Russian: Фёдор) (a Russian given male name and an acronym of “final experimental demonstration object research”) is a Russian humanoid that replicates movements of a remote operator as well as performs a limited set of actions autonomously.[1] Originally it was called Avatar and was funded by Ministry of Emergency Situations for rescue operations but later its intended use was expanded to space operations.
