REEM-C

A full-size biped humanoid robotics research platform. REEM-C is a bipedal humanoid designed as a research platform to study navigation, vision, AI, and human-robot interaction. It has modular hardware and versatile software architecture to adapt to different requirements. REEM-C is 100% integrated into ROS (Robot Operating System), the “de facto” robotics standard in academia, reducing drastically the time a researcher needs to start experimenting his algorithms on the real robot.

Overview

REEM-C is a bipedal humanoid designed as a research platform to study navigation, vision, AI, and human-robot interaction. It has modular hardware and versatile software architecture to adapt to different requirements.

REEM-C is 100% integrated into ROS (Robot Operating System), the “de facto” robotics standard in academia, reducing drastically the time a researcher needs to start experimenting his algorithms on the real robot.

The humanoid has 44 degrees of freedom, two Intel® Core™ i7 computers, stereo cameras, microphones, LEDs mouth, range lasers, 6 axis force/torque sensors, tactile sensors and an Xsens MTi-30 AHRS! It comes with already implemented walking algorithm based on the Zero Moment Point, allowing it to walk at 1.5 Km/h for 3 hours.

REEM-C has a MTi-30 AHRS sensor in the torso. This sensor improves walking stability on flat terrain, but it is an essential part to make it possible walking on on ramps, stairs and, in general, on rough terrain.
