Development of Open Humanoid Platform DARwIn-OP


This paper presents the design method for a humanoid which has a network based modular structure and a standard PC architecture. Based on the proposed method, we developed DARwIn-OP which meets the requirements for an open humanoid platform. DARwIn-OP has an expandable system structure, high performance, simple maintenance, familiar development environment, and affordable prices. All resources of DARwIn-OP including source codes, circuit diagrams, mechanical CAD files, and parts information will be opened to the public.
