In July 2001, the collaborative research center on humanoid robots started at the University of Karlsruhe. The project is expected to run for about 12 years, and it addresses various scientific problems in the field of humanoid robotics.
The main goal of the research center is to build an anthropomorphic robot which is able to cooperate with humans in many ways in every-day environments like e.g. a household. On the one hand, it should be possible to command the robot in an intuitive way using different input channels like speech, gesture or haptics. On the other hand, man-machine-interaction with direct physical contact as for cooperative manipulation of objects is also an important aspect. The intention of the project is not to build a robot to replace humans, but to serve them as flexible, easy-to-use machine.
About 40 scientists started working on the project in July 2001. Project partners include the University of Karlsruhe with several institutes belonging to different faculties but also local non-university research institutions take part in the project.
