Questions related to Humanoid Robots
I want to implement artificial intelligence in robots with my students. Soon we will have Arduino chips, so the hardware will be Arduino-based. I need ideas for prospective applications of AI with robots. It could be in any AI area - machine learning, computer vision, path searching and so on. Any suggestions?
I want to start my research in humanoid robots walking properly. Is there any cheap humanoid robot platform that I could use for research? I heard about the UBTech robot, what do you guys think? do not say NAO Robot/Robotis OP2 or 3, they are out of my budget. Thank you
In my Project Design of Humanoid Robot I would like to simulate human walk. I am familiar with ADAMS but recently came across other softwares like V-Rep and Gazebo.
Could anybody tell me if there is any specific advantage of using ADAMS over V-Rep/Gazebo?
I am looking for a tool for drawing a humanoid robot model like in this image. Is there any recommended software for drawing this model?
I plan to study humanoid robot dynamics during this semester's holiday. Are there any courses that I can join? so I can understand the topics quickly (ZMP, CoM, CoP, IK, FK, rotational matrices, etc)? My background is electrical engineering. Thank you
Will artificial neural structures become such advanced artificial intelligence that artificial consciousness will arise? Theoretically, such projects can be considered, but to really verify this, artificial neural structures should be created. From research on the human brain, it appears that this is a very complex and yet not fully understood neural structure. The brain has various centers, areas that manage the functioning of specific organs and processes of the human body. In addition, Sylvia is also complex and consists of elements of emotional, abstract, creative, etc. intelligence that also function in separate sectors of the human brain.
In view of the above, does research on the human brain and progress in the construction of ever more complex structures of artificial intelligence lead to synergy in the development of these fields of science? Will the development of these fields of science lead to the integration of research into the analysis of human brain activity and the construction of more and more complex structures of artificial intelligence equipped with elements of emotional, creative intelligence, etc.?
Besides, does the improvement of artificial intelligence lead to the emergence of artificial emotional intelligence and, consequently, to autonomous robots that will be sensitive to specific changes in environmental factors, factors of the surrounding environment? Will specific changes in the surrounding environment trigger programmed reactions of advanced artificial emotional intelligence, ie activation of pre-programmed algorithms of implemented activities and learning processes as part of improving the learning processes of machines.
Therefore, another important question arises in this area:
Is it possible to create an artificial consciousness that will function with the structure of an artificial electronic neural network built in such a way as to reflect the structure of the human brain? In this way, the structure of advanced artificial intelligence will be able to improve on the basis of acquired knowledge eg from external internet databases?
Do you agree with me on the above matter?
In the context of the above issues, I am asking you the following question:
Will it be possible to build artificial emotional intelligence?

We call Donald Trump and Boris Johnston and his cat and the mice that the cat hunts and the fleas on the mice and the coronavirus etc LIVING. But Boris's desk and his TV and the computer program that beats him at chess and and his electronic android servant (soon!) and windmills (cf Don Quixote) and holograms and ghosts we call NOT LIVING. But what is the difference? As a mathematical kind of person I would really like to know ... and rather precisely... it matters for agent based modelling etc
Note -- the difference is surely not about reproduction -- computer programs and machines can easily generate and distribute copies of themselves.
Will intelligent robots replace human in all difficult, cumbersome jobs and professions as part of the progress of civilization?
Will robotization in the course of civilization progress replace man in all difficult, arduous jobs and professions?
Please, answer, comments.

We are modeling an HRI scenario in virtual reality using Unity and the Oculus Rift. Our problem is, though, that Unity only allows objects to be either kinematic or physics. This means, either we have a nicely running inverse kinematic model of a 6-DOF industrial robot, but struggle with physical-virtual interaction with objects, or we have a physically correct behavior of the robotic parts, but lose the inverse kinematic model.
Does anyone of you also work with Unity as a platform for HRI VR and came across these issues, too?
Thank you very much in advance,
Artificial intelligence will find application in many fields of services and industries. Currently, among scientists studying AI, the dominating opinion is that the development of artificial intelligence and robotics should not get out of control of humanity. The mentioned escape from the control of the development of artificial intelligence and robotics is understood as gaining independence and independence of the human being - the creator by intelligent machines, robots, equipped with artificial intelligence, able to autonomously and autonomously operate without human control.
In many novels and films of the science fiction genre, these types of black technological development scenarios are presented, in which robots are able to repair themselves, replicate themselves, produce further autonomous robots and rebel against a man, and declare war on a man. The most famous science fiction idea in this topic is "Terminator", "2001 Space Odyssey", etc. In my opinion, this type of science fiction visions will not materialize.
In my opinion, it is still too early to answer this question. In addition, it is not certain whether the humanity will survive until the end of the 21st century in connection with the progressing global warming, so perhaps there will simply be no time for such a far-reaching continuation of technological advances in the field of artificial intelligence and robotics.
Do you agree with me on the above matter?
In the context of the above issues, the following question is valid:
Can the development of artificial intelligence and robotics escape the human control?
Different types of intelligence are studied and described, eg emotional intelligence is significantly different from classical intelligence. Intelligence is determined by various factors, both genetic and behavioral, developmental. In addition, the development of artificial intelligence, which in my opinion never matches human is done under the control of a human being, which means that the probability of realizing a negative development scenario of this technology presented in literature and film from the science fiction genre is small. It is unlikely that self-perfecting machines, which would be autonomous robots at the same time, would achieve a high level of intelligence, matching human intelligence and would rebel against people as demonstrated, for example, in science fiction movies from the "Terminator" series. Does anyone of you in this matter have a different opinion? If so, why?
Please, answer, comments.
I invite you to the discussion.
Are there futurological estimates when mass autonomous humanoid robots will be manufactured in series?
When mass-produced autonomous humanoid robots will be produced in series, that is, futurological visions known from such science fiction novels and movies as "I. Robot", "AI Artificial Intelligence", "Ex Machina", "Chappie", "Bicentennial Man", "Star Wars", "Star Trek", etc.?

Can someone explain to me the benefits from having a relationship with AI? And also the things we should worry about?
There have been many emotion space models, be it the circumplex model or the PANA model or the Plutchik's wheel. But all of them are used to represent human emotions in an emotion space. The definitions for arousal and valence are easy to interpret as human beings as we have some understanding of pleasant/ unpleasant or intense/non intense stimuli. However, how can we define the same for a robot? What stimuli should be considered as Arousing and what should be Pleasant for a robot? I am interested in reading the responses from researchers in the field and having a discussion in this area. Any reference to relevant literature would also be highly appreciated.
I am looking to work with the NAO humanoid robot in my Masters thesis and looking for various application areas and incorporating state-of-the-art technologies for solving a problem. Your suggestions will be very helpful.
I am making a humanoid robot where smooth walking is a challenging work. I have done the basic walking, but I should make it more smoother. Obviously, sensors like Gyroscope and Accelerometer are helpful to perform this task. Which of these sensors should I use?
I have a problem about finding current studies about my project which is related with humanoid robot head. Actully my question is not specific for this subject but it s general question for all fields of science.

For one stride how can I get the max height that human can achieve when walking on a flat surface and its position at the x-axis.
Thanks in advance.
Impact of longer stay in the space shuttle has significant health impact on cosmonauts, with essential long term recovery after returning back to Earth. Havin Humanoid Spatial Robots insted of Human might be way to move forward with much longer flights and depper space exploration.
Having a Robot at home may be considered today as having a machine that has no features to interact with pepole intellectually not emotionally. Given the current and future research and technological advancements the futuristics Humanoid Robots will be able to interact with people both intellectually and emotionally. Will they be ever accepted as home companions or will the be for ever considered just as machines and electro mechanical tools?
Surely, anyone who has a smartphone, tablet, laptop or PC, has some degree of dependency or even some kind of attachment to these computational devices. Yet, these so-called smart computational devices are far from possible degree of intelligence and smartness of Futuristic Smart Humanoid Robots.
The Future Smart Humanoid Robots will have all the computational capabilities of today's Smart Computational Devices, and far beyond. The future Smart Humanoid Robots will become essential part of daily life. Just imagine having lost or stolen your "Smart" Phone, Tablet, Laptop, or PC with all your private data.
They may become a essential platform to future education, work, health support, house safety, financial security, and far beyond.
This would naturally be quite difficult experience, even for a elementary or high school student, never mind being an Army General or Government Official.
If there is a degree of dependency on so-called smart computational devices today, imagine what degree of dependency could be on Futuristic Smart Humanoid Robot(s), and what kind traumatic experience one may live through if it get lost or stolen?
I intend to purchase a magnetoelectric measurement unit. My budget is around 30,000 USD. Can anybody please suggest me any brand/company? Thanks in advance.
Note in particular are you interested in the case where the rover may at times operate autonmously and at other times as a teleoperator while storing data for an astronaut user in a remote location, ie one of Mar's moons?
I am a post-doc fellow and have used and study (in my research) two additional tools to the ones you included in your planned workshop. They include government online forums and "walking interviews". Would these potentially interest you?

Thanks a lot
Hi, How can we do footstep planning for humanoid robot under ROS or webots environments. Kindly suggest. Any good approach for step length, direction and goal position from start and stop position.
Maybe Afforts to create a model for human behavior and movements and even feelings and reactions based on a mathematical equations is one of my interests in my future research life.
So I wanna see if there were any clues on this area which help me to make robats that just act like a human do on different situations to start my investigation on it??
I am working on humanoid path planning and completed with algorithm testing in matlab....now I need to test it in physics simulators so that I can validate my results. Openrave seems to be very good option for my algorithms....but I could not find any humanoid model as example file in Openrave installation.....are they available in the internet or do I have to create a model by myself.....thanks in advance.
for low dimensional configurations goal can be inferred from IK solution of given cartesian space goal constraint, but for a very high DOF system like biped(21-DOF's in my case) even deriving analytical expressions of Forward Kinematics (for the purpose of finding IK by gradient descent method) is cumbersome.....Is there any alternate method to do that.....thanks in advance.
Imagine you want to design X modules which you would use to create robots. how many modules would you develop and each ones? The aim is to be able to set up a maximal number of application robots from this modules.
I am trying to classify motion(i.e walking, under different peturbation forces) using accelerometer(x,yz) and gyroscope(x,y,z) values using DTW algorithm but due to the noisy nature of these sensors on a nao robot I have been thus far unsuccessful, I wanted to ask for suggestions/pointers on possible filtering techniques I could use to minimize this noise.Thanks

thanks a lot
I am interested in work on robots that can interact with children but are not telemedicine. I'm especially interested in social robots that can talk or understand human languae
We are making a humanoid and I am about to add some extra details, firstly there was idea of fingers and I have to submit another detail innovatively. Do you have any suggestions?
In my application, I am trying to find an electrical linear actuator, whose stroke is less than 200 mm, highest speed is more than 15 m/s^2, and the driving force is more than 400 N. Could anyone give me some suggestions about the brands or some offical links to find a solution?
Thanks so much in advance
I am currently looking into verification of mathematical and numerical models for humanoid robots. I have developed mathematical models and numerical algorithms but I want to verify their accuracy through some standard technique. In structural mechanics (FEA), there exist a technique called Grid Convergence Index (GCI). I am looking into similar index but for robotics.
Currently I am working as motion planning on humanoid robotics. I need some information on how to apply motion planning in matlab. or any other special software.
I am working with a humanoid robotic arm. The joints have dc servo motor with position and velocity sensor. But the sensor data is delayed. I have come across several methods including delayed input, transmission delay in telerobotic system etc. But it will be very helpful if somebody could guide me to which type of method I should follow.
We recently bought an iCub2 with enhanced communication abilities (see Nina below). We are currently working on visual attention and try to characterize the perception of the robot's gaze direction by human observers. We got surprised! The morphology of robotic eyes with no deformation of the eyelids and palpebral commissure strongly biases the estimation of eyes direction as soon as the gaze is averted.
Are you aware of any study (similar to what SAMER AL MOUBAYED and KTH colleagues have done with Furhat) on robots?
Thank you in advance for your help!
I have a humanoid robot and I want to implement force control at one of the end-effectors. For this, is Jacobian Transpose better or the Jacobian Inverse?
If a robot is equipped with multiple sensors e.g. camera, audio, tactile, force/torque etc., how can its position estimation be improved by sensor fusion?
First off when the brain starts to control these non attached arms wether they are mechanical or virtual I was curious about the location of the brain development. Does the new activity take place in the motor cortex and if so where? If the virtual attachment acts as an arm does the new neuro development happen in the same motor region where the other two arm movement signals are generated or is it a random location? I have read about mice whisker sensory mapping where researchers added and removed whiskers from a mouse and that added and removed sensory maps in the mouse's brain for those whiskers. What is the capacity of adding new motor control functions to the brain, if a monkey can control a walking robot can it control and create a unique sensory map for ten robots, 20, 100 robots? It'll be exciting to see the progress ten years from now.
I'm trying to build an affective lego robot for my study of human-robot collaboration. Could you suggest me what to read about expressing basic affect in robots (especially with a help of eyebrows and upper body)? And I'd be very grateful if you could answer this short survey so I could get some data about the current emotional expressions of my robot: http://kwiksurveys.com/s.asp?sid=x58ni0wxzxid65t122704 .
I am making a robot. Its mechanical part is complete but voice control system is incomplete. Can you suggest how can I control my robot using voice?
As part of my research project, I'm looking into how we can make robots dance and adapt their robotic dance movements to the preferences of humans. The ultimate aim of the research is to develop an overal model for dancing robots as my contribution to make robots more socially acceptable in society.
So far, I have developed a program to make robots learn the fundamentals of dance and have now modified the program so that the robot changes and adapts it's movement to human preferences, but currently on the process of doing experiments.
I was wondering if any you wouldn't mind taking part in this questionnaire, by simply observering some videos of my dancing robot and answering honestly the related questions.
The videos and the questionnaire can be found here:
I'll also be interested to know if anyone else is doing work in this area or can share ideas etc.
Thanks for your help
