LARMbot project aims to develop a humanoid robot with biomimetic inspiration from human anatomy by using parallel mechanisms. Previous related work is presented particularly referring to torso and leg modules. A specific design of LARMbot is proposed by using proper parallel mechanisms in torso and leg designs. A CAD model is elaborated in SolidWorks® environment and the corresponding prototype is fabricated with low-cost user-oriented features by using commercial components and parts manufactured using 3D printing. Preliminary results of experiment tests are also reported for operation evaluation and architecture design characterization.
