HISTORY
DLR has been developing lightweight robot arms and hands since 1995. In 2006, researchers combined two arms, hands, and a torso to build the first Justin upper body, mounted on a table. In 2008, a wheeled base was added, and Rollin' Justin was presented. In 2012, the current system was equipped with an improved control system for the mobile base and an updated computing platform.
