Humanoïd Robot


On September 2013, GIPSA-Lab acquired NINA, an iCub2.0 built by the IIT in Genoa, Italy. This humanoïd robot is ready for speech: compared to the standard iCub, NINA is able to move its jaw and lips. NINA has an embedded loudspeaker in its mouth and two high-quality microphones in its ears. Together with gaze, head and hand gestures, we aim at giving socio-communicative skills to NINA so that it could have a situated face-to-face conversation with human interlocutors.

This robotic platform has been financed by the Robotex project (ANR-10-EQPX-44-01) and a grant from the Université Joseph Fourrier (UJF).
