Here’s what Erin has to say about Poppy: “The design of this humanoid is interesting, and quite different from the normal ‘block’ appearance. On humanoids, knee servos break the most often, and it is accounted for in this robot with the use of springs (also making the leg swing a little different). Will be interesting to see if it helps with knee burnouts. They are researching even more areas, such as the angle of the things on biped locomotion. Very cool project!”
Poppy is an Open-source humanoid platform based on robust, flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software.
Designed by the Flowers Lab at inria Bordeaux (France), its development aims at providing an affordable humanoid robot for Research and Education.

THE POPPY PLATFORM
The Poppy project aims at building an Open-source humanoid platform based on robust, flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software.
Designed by the Flowers Lab at Inria Bordeaux and Ensta ParisTech (France), its development aims at providing an affordable and hackable humanoid robot for science, education, art and geeks.
Poppy was initially made for our research project about understanding biped locomotion, and full-body physical and social interaction in robots and humans.
