HRP-2, a humanoid robot, climbing the stairs. It is being controlled remotely by a research scientist. HRP-2, the humanoid robot forerunner of Pyrène, was developed in 2006 at the Joint Robotics Laboratory, a Franco-Japanese venture. It already demonstrates advanced computing and reasoning capacity. To achieve that, it is fitted with cameras for vision as well as effort and attitude sensors for balance management, forward planning and movement control. In 2017, Pyrène took these developments further, notably with an inertial measurement unit to manage balance, a depth-perception camera, highly robust grippers enabling it to lift heavy loads and advanced computing capacity.
