Subprojects: Superhumanoid One (S1), Superhumanoid Two (S2)
Superhumanoids is a multi-year research project consisting of many connected sub-projects, each of which by itself is of a significant scale. The goal of Superhumanoids is to build the next generation of social robots.
The first superhumanoid we are building is Superhumanoid One (S1), which is currently being brought to life through various animation, modeling, planning, speech recognition and synthesis technologies. As a first step we are giving S1 the ability to host a radio show; this part of the Superhumanoids project is called Superradiohost. Superhumanoid Two (S2) will start to be developed spring 2007, combining S1 with Superbody. Superhumanoid Three (S3) started fall 2006 – a physical robot based on the Skundar platform. A foundation for Superhumanoid Four (S4) – a small, physical humanoid robot – will start in spring 2007.
