The ROBOTIS OP3 Advanced Humanoid Robot is the latest miniature humanoid robot platform from ROBOTIS. One of the noticeable changes of ROBOTIS OP3 has made is by replacing the MX-28 actuators with XM-430 actuators. Another significant change is also made in internal PC by replacing Atom-based SBC (Single Board Computer) with Intel i3 based NUC.
With the XM-430 which supports Dynamixel Protocol 2.0, OP3 has improved torque along with current based control and loaded with various functions. Intel NUC allows highly improved computing power that supports 64-bit OS and Bluetooth 4.1. All these hardware improvements and ROS support allows developers to focus more on research and development compared to the preceding robots.

ROBOTIS OP3 is loaded Intel NUC with i3 processor to achieve significant improvement in computing power. OP3 supports HDMI and Display Port(DP) while OP2 only supports mini HDMI. There are 1 RGB LED and 3 LEDs, 4 buttons on the back of OP3. From left to right, each button stands for Mode, Start, User, Reset.
