Welcome to H²T

The Humanoid Robotics Systems - High Performance Humanoid Technologies Lab (H²T) at the Institute for Anthropomatics and Robotics of the Department of Informatics, focuses on 24/7 humanoid robotics technologies and systems able to predict, act and interact in the real world and perform a wide variety of tasks. The major research topics of the group include humanoid mechanoinformatics and design, grasping and dexterous manipulation, goal-directed imitation learning, active vision and active touch, multimodal exploration, modelling and analysis of human motion, software and hardware architectures and system integration. H2T is led by professor Tamim Asfour who was leading the humanoid research group at the Humanoids and Intelligence Systems Lab (HIS) since 2003 and is developing the ARMAR humanoid robot family.



ARMAR-6 in the media

The first press release featuring the humanoid robot ARMAR-6, developed at H2T, was launched. The robot is part of the EU-funded SecondHands research project and currently being used for research activities at OCADO Technology near London.

Open House Day the 22.11.2017

Within the European Robotics Week the High Performance Humanoid Technologies Lab invites everybody to an open house day on the 22.11.2017 between 1pm and 5 pm.

The humanoid robots of the ARMAR-family will demonstrate their skills in an everyday environment by doing typical tasks and interacting with humans. Besides there will be the possibility to interact personally with the humanoid robot NAO.
