The iCub humanoid robot: an overview and latest hardware developments

The design of humanoid robots is challenging task. Unlike industrial manipulators that operate in well defined conditions, humanoid robots are expected to operate in highly unstructured and dynamic environments, eventually populated by human co-workers. Therefore defining a comprehensive set of specifications to guide the design is extremely complex. Indeed most groups follow an iterative approach, gradually refining the design of the robots as their modes of operation become clearer with tests on prototypes. The talk will present the approach followed for the design of the iCub humanoid robot. After an overview of the original system  the latest updates architecture will be shown and discussed.
