    Controlling a humanoid robot with its typical many degrees of freedom is a complex task, and many methods have been proposed to solve the problem of humanoid locomotion. In this work, we generate a gait for a Hitec Robonova-I robot using a model-free approach, where fairly simple parameterized...

    If humanoid robots are to be used in society, they should be able to maintain their balance. Knowing where to step is crucially important. In this paper we contribute an algorithm that can compute the foot step location such that bipedal balance is maintained for planar bipeds with point feet...

    In this paper, an evolutionary optimized footstep planner for the navigation of humanoid robots is proposed. A footstep planner based on a univector field navigation method is proposed to generate a command state (CS) as an input to a modifiable walking pattern generator (MWPG) at each footstep....

    This paper focuses on developing a consistent methodology for deriving a closed-form inverse kinematic joint solution of a humanoid robot with decision equations to select a proper solution from multiple solutions. Most researchers resort to iterative methods for inverse kinematics using the...
