Humanoid – Bot Evolution

Posted on Posted in Humanoid-en



since June 2014

Rule changes for 2014 have caused us to build larger robots. For this, we have adapted the Nimbro OP to a size of 85 cm. The aluminum and carbon parts were manufactured as before in the university workshop. We created plastic parts, like the head and the hands, with our 3D printer. In addition to significantly larger batteries are used Intel NUCs with i5 processor.







since June 2012

The mechanical design of this generation is based on the DARwIn-OP. With a sturdy aluminum scaffolding and stronger servos (RX-28 or MX-28), we have a convincing new platform. We have the metal parts made in our university workshop. On a new main board is now an Intel Atom processor is used.







September 2010 – June 2012

In addition to some small improvements, two new degrees of freedom have been added.








June 2009 – September 2010

After we noticed on the GermanOpen 2009 that the robot team around JonnyFirst is too heavy, we have dismantled the PDA and now work in the head with an embedded Linux. Both image processing and artificial intelligence are now running on the processor. With this model, we entered the RoboCup 2009 in Graz.








  April 2009 – June 2009

With the improved version of Jonny we participated in the GermanOpen 2009. Here we have reduced the head and also made the legs smaller again. Much has also been done on electronics. So we had only 3 controllers at this time.








February 2009 – April 2009

With the so-called “Huno”, the humanoid construction from the RoboBuilder Kit, we have continued. It was equipped with image processing and PDA and we shot our first goal. With JonnyFirst, our extended version of the RoboBuilder kit, we have shot our qualification video.







End of 2008 – February 2009

We made our first attempts with humanoid robots with the Bioloid Kit. We have nevertheless decided, for reasons of cost and since the wCK servos faster, for the RoboBuilder kit.
