Bipedal Robots by Christine Chevallereau

Book Description

This book presents various techniques to carry out the gait modeling, the gait patterns synthesis, and the control of biped robots. Some general information on the human walking, a presentation of the current experimental biped robots, and the application of walking bipeds are given. The modeling is based on the decomposition on a walking step into different sub-phases depending on the way each foot stands into contact on the ground. The robot design is dealt with according to the mass repartition and the choice of the actuators. Different ways to generate walking patterns are considered, such as passive walking and gait synthesis performed using optimization technique. Control based on the robot modeling, neural network methods, or intuitive approaches are presented. The unilaterality of contact is dealt with using on-line adaptation of the desired motion.

Feedback Control of Dynamic Bipedal Robot Locomotion by Christine Chevallereau Feedback Control of Dynamic Bipedal Robot Locomotion, Hardback (June 2007)

Presents systematic methods for achieving stable, agile, and efficient locomotion in bipedal machines. This book describes dynamic locomotion in planar bipedal robots, from both theoretical and practical points of view. It is suitable for researchers and practitioners seeking to move beyond the quasi-static walking of powered bipedal robots.
