Embodied Cognition in a Compliantly Engineered Robot

Embodied Cognition in a Compliantly Engineered Robot

Objective

Anthropomimetic robot with the inner human body structure and mechanisms
Standard humanoid robots mimic the human form, but the mechanisms used in such robots are very different from those in humans. This places severe limitations on the kinds of interactions such robots can engage in and on the knowledge they can acquire of their environment. The anthropomimetic robot copies the inner structures and mechanisms of a human. ECCEROBOT has three goals: to design and build a robot using anthropomimetic principles; to characterise its dynamics and control it; and to exploit its human-like characteristics to produce some human-like cognitive features.
