Abstract

This paper presents the historical development of the humanoid robots of the BHR series, ranging from the first Chinese humanoid robot BHR-1 to the current sixth generation BHR-6P. The early BIT (Beijing Institute of Technology) activities in robotics have laid a foundation for the development of the BHR series. The success of the first prototype of BHR-1 in 2001 gave the start of Intelligent Robot Institute and the technological and social influence attracted proper funding for continued development of the next BHR generations. Several challenges have been overcome by fully independent efforts of BIT, and future designs of the BHR series will aim at breaking through more challenging technological difficulties in the field of humanoid robotics.
