— This paper presents a new tendon driven robotic eye. The system has been designed to emulate the actual saccadic and smooth pursuit movements performed by human eyes. The system consists of a sphere (the eyeball), actuated by four independent tendons driven by four DC motors, integrated in the system. The eyeball hosts a miniature CMOS color camera and is(More)
A novel embedded distributed capacitive tactile sensor system designed to be installed on humanoid robots is presented. It provides pressure and shape information about the contacts with objects and the environment. The system is based on conformable mesh of sensors having triangular shape, interconnected in order to form a networked structure. Each(More)
