—The development of robotic cognition and the advancement of understanding of human cognition form two of the current greatest challenges in robotics and neuroscience, respectively. The RobotCub project aims to develop an embodied robotic child (iCub) with the physical (height 90 cm and mass less than 23 kg) and ultimately cognitive abilities of a(More)
— This paper describes the design of a robot head, developed in the framework of the RobotCub project. This project goals consists on the design and construction of a humanoid robotic platform, the iCub, for studying human cognition. The final platform will be approximately 90cm tall, with 23 kg and with a total number of 53 degrees of freedom. For its(More)
— We describe the design of an anthropomorphic robot, combining a binocular head, an arm and a hand, for research in visuomotor coordination and learning by imitation. Our goal was to produce a system resembling the human arm-hand kinematics as closely as possible, while keeping it simple and relatively low-cost. We present mechanical details, kinematics(More)
