This paper introduces an open architecture humanoid robotics platform (OpenHRP) on which various building blocks of humanoid robotics can be investigated. OpenHRP is a virtual humanoid robot platform with a compatible humanoid robot, and consists of a simulator of humanoid robots and motion control library for them which can also be applied to a compatible humanoid robot as it is. OpenHRP is expected to initiate the exploration of humanoid robotics on an open architecture software and hardware…
