This paper describes our first teen sized humanoid robot Archie. This robot has been developed in conjunction with Prof. Kopacek's lab from the Technical University of Vienna. Archie uses brushless motors and harmonic gears with a novel approach to position encoding. Based on our previous experience with small humanoid robots, we developed software to create, store, and play back motions as well as control methods which automatically balance the robot using feedback from an internal measurement unit (IMU).
