The human body was not designed by engineers and the way in which it is built poses enormous control problems. Its complexity challenges the ability of classical control theory to explain human movement as well as the development of human motor skills. It is our working hypothesis that the engineering paradigm for building robots places severe limitations on the kinds of interactions such robots can engage in, on the knowledge they can acquire of their environment, and therefore on the nature of their cognitive engagement with the environment. This paper describes the design of an anthropomimetic humanoid upper torso, ECCE1, built in the context of the ECCEROBOT project. The goal of the project is to use this platform to test hypotheses about human motion as well as to compare its performance with that of humans, whether at the mechanical, behavioural or cognitive level.
