force. We also propose an extended model ZMP control method which uses horizontal and rotational acceleration of the upper body and step duration change to generate moments to handle disturbances too large to be handled by ground reaction force control. Combining these techniques, robust biped running is achieved.
A controller for biped running has to consider varying vertical ground reaction force while satisfying the horizontal ground reaction force and moment limits. We propose a design technique for feedback gains to stabilize the upper body position under varying vertical ground reaction force. We also propose an extended model ZMP control method which uses… (More)
