Androids have played an important role in films, books, and computer games for a long time already - but only few of us have stood face to face to a fully functionable humanoid robot. The opportunity to do this will be given on Wednesday, November 20, 2019, from 1 to 5 pm during the Open Day event of KIT’s Institute for Anthropomatics and Robotics (building 50.20, Adenauerring 2, 76131 Karlsruhe).
