Abstract

Developing a humanoid robot is not adding intelligence to any mechanical solution; in our opinion it is developing together" body and mind" of the robot to obtain a system intrinsically able to adapt to real situations and to share the same solutions of the human user. In this paper we present the main architectural solutions of our humanoid robot. In particular we describe its unique mechanical construction, fully based on McKibben actuators. Starting from a biomimetic design, we will explain the controlling strategy and discuss about performance.
