„Rollin' Justin“

The mobile humanoid roboter, named "Rollin' Justin", with its compliant controlled light weight arms and its two four finger hands is an ideal experimental platform for current research issues, such as the capability to carry out complex manipulation tasks.The newly developed mobile platform allows the long range autonomous operation of the system.The individually movable, spring born wheels match the special requirements of “Justin's” upper body during manipulation tasks. PMD sensors and cameras allow the 3D reconstruction of the robot's environment and therefore enable Justin to perform given tasks autonomously.
