Legs on Robonaut:

http://robonaut.jsc.nasa.gov/default.asp

The Honda robots carrying their battery packs I assumed to be common knowledge. But trying to get more detailed specifications is propably a issue of proprietary information.

Regarding the ASIMO do you really think that is comparable with Robonaut 2? You keep moving the goal posts here, you list faculty after faculty but you should demonstrate why these are desirable for NASA.

The question was wether a robot could carry its own battery pack, so I'm not moving the goal posts. That robonaut 2 not have at least what MIT's COG has in autonomous capabilites is prolematic. Especially when that technology from MIT is available to NASA.

The point has always been are "we the people" gettng our monies worth? When GM's objective is to use a robot for a very structured environment and NASA's goals need more dexterirty, such as being able to visiually sense and track objects so as to grab items and handles. It doesn't appear the two, NASA and GM, have enough common points that the joint effort proves to be productive as it would have using, say MIT's, or Carnigie Mellon's R&D.

Isn't Robonaut 2 a "love" robot?

Agreed. Experiment failed, thread locked.
