Autonomous robots are usually given a considerable sensing capacity. However, they are seldom equipped with the necessary actuators to perform active perception techniques or human-like tasks. This paper presents two robot actuators and RobEx, the robot platform where they have been tested. The first of the actuators is a forklift. The other presented actuator is a four DOF stereo head. Both, the mechanical and electronic designs are released as open-hardware. The software that controls all the presented robotic hardware is also available under the GPL license.
