  • Released:
  • 2002
  • Babybot-R

    Following its success with their Babybot humanoid robot in 2002, the Korean Institute of Science and Technology’s (KISTs) Biomimetic Robotics Lab developed a more refined version of this humanoid which still possesses all the features of the babybot. The newer version, which was developed in 2003, is called the Babybot-R.

    The Babybot-R, just like its predecessor, has a unique visual intelligence system but is slightly lighter at 10kg. Furthermore, the Babybot-R’s leg system is equipped with motor and harmonic drive systems.

    To control and coordinate this humanoid, KIST designed this Korean humanoid robot to be as small as possible with the aid of DSP’s TMS320VC33 and some motor amps.

    Just like the Babybot, this refined version is equipped with voice recognition and speaking modules, allowing this Korean robot to recognize and respond to 35 different voice commands.

    Babybot-R Features:

    • Cameras
    • Unique Vision System
    • Voice Recognition
    • Gyroscope
    • DC Servo Motors
