With recent introduction of multi-purpose modular actuators, affordable sensors and commercially available smaller humanoid robots, the entry barrier for humanoid robotics research has been greatly mitigated. And now many robotic challenges for humanoid robots are asking for a general, self-contained humanoid robot system that can autonomously work in uncontrolled environment.

In this talk, we will show how we build a modular, general purpose software framework for humanoid robots from simple and efficient software modules, and how the software framework has been successfully used for various humanoid robot applications including RoboCup international robotics competition and DARPA Robotics Challenge.
