abstract = {A growing trend in humanoid robotics tend at reducing the size of
humanoids in order to lower their building costs. While growing small
has its advantages, it also has drawbacks. In particular, providing
miniature humanoids with the same sensorimotor capabilities as their
grown-up peers is a challenge, both in terms of mechanics, electronics
and control. The Robota project creates humanoids, whose size should
match that of a commercial doll, so that they can be used as part of
experiments with autistic children. Because these experiments measure
the child's ability to socially interact with others, it is
fundamental to provide the robot with sensory capabilities, such as
speech and vision, that are at the basis of these interactions. This
paper presents the creation of a miniature pair of mobile eyes,
mounted with miniature cameras to provide Robota with binocular and
mobile vision. The system allows the robot to blink, to direct its
gaze toward or away from its user and to track the user's face.},
