This paper describes the design of a robot head featuring cameras and microphones in a system geared to active perception. The principal motivation behind the design is that the head should exhibit degrees of freedom, physical dimensions and sensor location equivalent to that of a human head. The overall goal for the project is to develop sensory reflexes for the head with a speed and operation similar to that found in biological systems. Implementation of the vergence reflex is described and some performance results are presented.
