iCub is a research-grade humanoid robot designed to help developing and testing embodied AI algorithms. iCub is the ideal companion to your robotics laboratory. The iCub Project blends results from various IIT Research Units by applying the principles of systems engineering and by seeking worldwide collaboration opportunities. Not less importantly, the iCub team is active in several industrial partnerships. The iCub Project represents one of IIT's thrusts in the transfer of robotics technologies to industrial exploitation.
iCub: the yet unfinished story of building a robot child
Scientists and engineers of the iCub Project work at the forefront of mechatronics and artificial intelligence research to build robots of humanoid shape. The iCub "crew" members cover the full development cycle from software to mechanical design and from machine learning to neuromorphic chip realization. Our team aims at developing robots that on the one hand can learn and adapt from their mistakes, and on the other are robust to work in real-world practical scenarios.Read more
