Project Information

The Collaborative Research Center 588 "Humanoid Robots – Learning and Cooperating Multimodal Robots" was established on July 1st, 2001 by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) and will run until June 30th, 2012.

The goal of this interdisciplinary research project is the development of humanoid robots which resemble humans in their ways of acting in the world, of reasoning and of communicating about the world. Apart from the development of mechatronic components for humanoid robots, the research efforts span a wide range of disciplines such as learning from observation, multi-modal human-humanoid interaction, interpretation of human activities, as well as the execution of grasping and manipulation tasks in a human-centered environment.
