Talos

TALOS is a fully electrical humanoid robot that has sensored torque control in all its joints and uses EtherCAT bus protocol. The modular robot can tackle complex industrial tasks with its 6 Kg payload with each arm. TALOS is a biped humanoid robot as tall as a person and designed for research in complex industrial environments. The robot is moved by a crane and can be used for drilling and walking through rough terrain. TALOS can be used in multiple research areas, like navigation, Vision, HRI, AI, grasping, walking or speech recognition.
