Our first humanoid robot has arrived at the Human Automation Lab in Halden! TIAGo from PAL Robotics combines perception, navigation, manipulation & Human-Robot Interaction skills. TIAGo will be immediately put into use in the Interactive Robots project, exploring collaboration between robots and humans. We are particularly interested in studying the impact of the robot’s appearance (humanoid versus non-humanoid) on human perceptions and expectations of its capabilities.
Take a look at the unboxing video below!
