The running machine C-Runner (Compliant Runner) is a research platform for topics centered on robust locomotion on two legs. The system will be enhanced with a torso in the future to create a complete humanoid robot.
The anthropomorphic robot David (formerly the DLR Hand Arm System) has joints with Variable Stiffness Actuators (VSA) that have mechanically adjustable flexibility in the drive train. One objective of development is to approach human capabilities, particularly with regard to dynamics, dexterity, and robustness.
In the future humanoid robots are envisioned in household applications as well as in space environments. The capability to carry out complex manipulation tasks is a key issue. The mobile humanoid robot Rollin' Justin is utilized as a research platform for autonomous dexterous mobile manipulation in human environments.
SpaceJustin is a humanoid upper body consisting of two Light-Weight Robot arms, two DLR-HIT Hands II, a torso and a head. Equipped with various force and optical sensors it can be operated in telemanipulation and shared autonomy modes.
The humanoid walking robot TORO (TOrque-controlled humanoid RObot) is a research platform for scientific topics dealing with bipedal movement and dynamics. This includes things such as robust walking, climbing stairs and multi-contact scenarios.
