We present the design and construction of Mertz, an active-vision humanoid head robot, with the immediate goal of having the robot runs continuously for many hours a day without supervision at various locations. We address how the lack of robustness and reliability lead to limitations and scalability issues in research robotic platforms. We propose to attend to these issues in parallel with the course of robot development. Drawing from lessons learned from our previous robots, we incorporateddoi:10.1109/ichr.2004.1442668 dblp:conf/humanoids/AryanandaW04 fatcat:l6ttxumwijddlewd5eepswzbz4
