Abstract

With the increasing complexity and automation of technology, robots are becoming service providers for industrial society. The evolution of living organisms today inspires the construction of robotic systems for different purposes [1]. As the complexity and difficulty of the service task increases, the use of AI technology becomes unavoidable. And robots don’t have to look like humans. Just as airplanes do not look like birds, there are also other adapted shapes depending on their function. So the question arises for what purpose humanoid robots should possess which properties and abilities.
Humanoid robots should be able to act directly in the human environment. In the human environment, the environment is adapted to human proportions. The design ranges from the width of the corridors and the height of a stair step to the positions of door handles. For non-human robots (e.g. on wheels and with other grippers instead of hands) large investments for environmental changes would have to be made. In addition, all tools that humans and robots should use together are adapted to human needs. Not to be underestimated is the experience that humanoid forms psychologically facilitate the emotional handling of robots.
