In this paper, we present a new two-dof anthropomorphic joint mechanism that enables to mimic the humanlike motion. The proposed mechanism, called Double Active Universal Joint(DAUJ), generates a two-dof swivel motion without rolling by the coupled motion of two independent motor. In addition, we perform basic experiments to confirm the effectiveness of the proposed mechanism and the results are reported.
