In order to perform real world experiments with the proposed cognitive architecture, this Scientific Initiation aim at building a humanoid robot typically with 25/27 degrees of freedom (DOF). Previous models of humanoid robots built by the team will be used as reference. However, in order to comply with the requirements of multimodal sensing and interactive behavior, the platform must be adapted to support new sensors and additional movements.
