Turning Gait Planning Method for Humanoid Robots
AbstractThe most important feature of this paper is to transform the complex motion of robot turning into a simple translational motion, thus simplifying the dynamic model. Compared with the method that generates a center of mass (COM) trajectory directly by the inverted pendulum model, this method is more precise. The non-inertial reference is introduced in the turning walk. This method can translate the turning walk into a straight-line walk when the inertial forces act on the robot. The dynamics of the robot model, called linear inverted pendulum (LIP), are changed and improved dynamics are derived to make them apply to the turning walk model. Then, we expend the new LIP model and control the zero moment point (ZMP) to guarantee the stability of the unstable parts of this model in order to generate a stable COM trajectory. We present simulation results for the improved LIP dynamics and verify the stability of the robot turning. View Full-Text
