A platform of the future

Ameca is the world’s most advanced human shaped robot representing the forefront of human-robotics technology.

Designed specifically as a platform for development into future robotics technologies, Ameca is the perfect humanoid robot platform for human-robot interaction.

We focus on bringing you innovative technologies, which are reliable, modular, upgradable and easy to develop upon.

AI x AB

Human-like artificial intelligence needs a human-like artificial body (AI x AB).

Artificial intelligence and machine learning systems can be tested and developed on Ameca alongside our powerful Tritium robot operating system.

The Ameca hardware is a development based on our own research into humanoid robotics and built on our advanced Mesmer technology.

Show off

As well as a development platform, Ameca is also a great attraction, just like our Mesmer and RoboThespian robots. Wow your customers or visitors at an event or visitor attraction.

Reliability is key, and all our robots are built to last in action in the real world, not just in the lab.

The modular architecture allows for future upgrades, both physically and software to enhance Ameca’s abilities, all without having to fork out for an entire new robot.

Ameca is available for purchase or event rental.

Modular by design

Both hardware and software is modular, making it easily upgradable.

All modules can run independently so you can have just a head, or even only an arm. No need for a full robot.

Head in the clouds

Built from the ground up with a cloud connected focus, all our robots can benefit from the latest and greatest the tech community have to offer.

Gain access to all the robots data, control it as your personal avatar, animate and simulate, all available from anywhere in the world.

Natural motion

Smooth, lifelike motion and advanced facial expression capabilities means Ameca can strike an instant rapport with anybody.

Ameca is the perfect platform to develop interaction between us humans and any metaverse or digital realm.

What people say

I cannot thank Engineered Arts enough!

"I cannot thank Engineered Arts enough for their fabulous robot. The robot itself is top quality design and engineering, and we are constantly surprised by the elegance of the design and the quality of the make and materials. It is astonishingly reliable. The technical support is as outstanding as the robot, with experts able to direct and assist with the running on every detail of the robot. We were concerned about having enough technical ability to own a robot. We needn't have worried. The interface is extremely intuitive, allowing us to really be creative with full confidence in the robot and the supporting software. Our robot is very well received by people, and allows us full freedom in our creative industry. Both the robot and the team are brilliant, and I cannot recommend highly enough."
Lucy Seal, Curator of Ai-Da Robot. The world’s first ultra-realistic robot artist

We were fantastically supported by Marcus

"We worked with Engineered Arts to develop custom content for our RoboThespian, including our own touchscreen interface design. We were fantastically supported by Marcus and the team throughout the customisation process. We were able to create the baseline content wholly through user testing ideas with online participants using Virtual RoboThespian via video calls. It was a really useful tool for engaging with users virtually during the pandemic and allowed us to tailor the content in terms of both script, tone and movement. The whole process gave us a fantastic amount of freedom to create something that hasn’t existed in a science centre before! Our early visitors have said "It’s fascinating to see a human sized robot" and "He's really visually striking this is the exhibit that resonates the most""
Rose O’Reilly, Content Developer, We The Curious, Bristol UK

We were very taken by RoboThespian

"When I came back to Oxford Brookes, I started to think about and plan our research in robotics. I started to look around what was available in terms of current robotics technology when I came across RoboThespian and I thought he was amazing! He was very expressive, he could move his arms, hands and his head to gesture. The eyes in particular are very expressive because they're LCD screens so we've got a great deal of freedom in portraying sadness and happiness and all sorts of emotions through them. I was invited to visit Engineer Arts and it was a fantastic experience. It was like walking on to the set of iRobot. We were very taken by RoboThespian. I then came back to Oxford Brookes and talked to senior colleagues here at the University, we immediately said we should get one"
Professor Nigel Cook, Oxford Brookes. Oxford

«Engineered Arts have been very supportive»

"As far as I have worked with various robotic platforms, RoboThespian is a unique one in terms of its design and features. The well-designed and elegant structure of RoboThespian allows mimicking human movements in a seamless way. The simplicity of its backend system in programming complex tasks has enabled us to teach students to program complex movements scenarios and behaviours. The team of Engineered Arts have been very supportive in guiding us through the installation and programming steps. Due to these facts, I would highly recommend Engineered Arts technologies for any robotics lab"
Dr. Abdullah Almeshal, College of Technological Studies – RAiLab, Kuwait.

«It´s easier than Ikea to set up!»

"When we approached Engineered Arts about RoboThespian we had a bold project in mind, we wanted to ask local school children to create content for the robot to engage the local community around green energy projects in Scotland. Engineered Arts took the children's ideas and created bespoke content that visitors can play from our touchscreen console that was supplied. Our installation engineer said "It´s easier than Ikea to set up, It was real fun! My compliments, I was pretty impressed!"
Bryan Snelling, Aberdeen Science Centre

What people ask

Not yet. There are many hurdles to overcome before Ameca can walk. Walking is a difficult task for a robot, and although u003ca href=u0022https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=repfeiLeilsu0026amp;t=6su0022u003ewe have done researchu003c/au003e into it, we have not created a full walking humanoid. u003cbr/u003eHowever, Ameca is a modular robot, we plan on upgrading it’s abilities over time so one day Ameca will walk.

A big question. Ameca contains some software which can be described as ‘artificially intelligent’, but the question is bigger than that, u003ca href=u0022https://www.engineeredarts.co.uk/software/artificial-intelligence-vs-human-intelligence/u0022u003echeck out our explanationu003c/au003e of the difference between robots and AI.u003cbr/u003eThe main purpose of Ameca is to be a platform for developing AI. We love designing and building robots, we’ll leave it to you and all the other amazing (naturally intelligent) brains out there to create the AI and machine learning alogrithms and see how far we can progress the technology together.

If anything doesn’t go to plan, our engineers can access and troubleshoot your robot remotely, instantly diagnosing the problem and often fixing any issue on the spot, even something as small as an eyelid movement. u003cbr/u003eWe are also happy to give development support for Ameca and the Tritium system.
