RoboCup’s TeenSize League gets champion open-source robot

Team NimbRo, led by Professor Sven Behnke, is in a particularly good position to commercialize a TeenSize robot platform. Not only have they won in the TeenSize class several years running, they took home the Louis Vuitton Humanoid Cup for “Best Humanoid” this year. The NimbRo-OP stands three feet (95 cm) tall, weighs 14.5 pounds (6.6 kg), and has a total of 20 degrees of freedom (it uses the standard configuration of six servos per leg, three per arm, and two in its neck). It may look a little dopey at first, but underneath it sports a dual-core PC powered by the AMD E-450 processor, has two gigabytes of RAM, and a 64 gig solid state drive.
