ROBOTIS DARwIn-OP

ROBOTIS DARwIn-OP

The ROBOTIS DARwIn-OP Advanced Humanoid Robot Deluxe Edition is an affordable, miniature-humanoid-robot platform with advanced computational power, sophisticated sensors, high payload capacity, and dynamic motion ability to enable many exciting research and education activities.

Furthermore the model is fully calibrated and thus features realistic physics (including masses, inertia, friction, self-collision, etc. To program the DARwIn-Op robot, it is possible to connect to the robot through a network cable or by Wifi. The open source hardware is not only user serviceable thanks to its modular design, but also can be fabricated by the user. Publically open CAD files for all of its parts, and instructions manuals for fabrication and assembly are available on-line for free.

The Darwin-OP robot is an affordable programmable humanoid robot made by Robotis, the well known company for its various personal robotics brands. Darwin-OP robot has been designed by Romela lab at Virginia tech. This humanoid robot is fully open-source and can be programmed by various softwares. Darwin-OP robot is an ideal platform for teaching and research. A number of DARwIn-OP units will be fabricated and built by Robotis Co. for distribution to 11 partner universities (including major research universities, RUI institutions, a women’s college, and two local high schools.
