Bristol Elumotion Robot Torso Version 2 (BERT2) is a humanoid robot currently in development at Bristol Robotics Laboratory (BRL). In this paper we present the current state of development and demonstrate how the in- tegration of several advanced subsystems (of commercial and non-commercial nature) within a heterogeneous computing infrastructure enables us to construct a unique platform ideally suited to investigate complex human-robot interaction (HRI). We particularly focus on two important domains of non-verbal communication, namely gaze and pointing gestures in a real-world 3D setting and outline our thinking in terms of safety, ambiguities and further experimental work.
