Foot placement has long been recognized as the primary mechanism that humans use to restore balance. Many biomechanists have examined where humans place their feet during gait, perturbations, and athletic events. Roboticists have also used foot placement as a means of control but with limited success. Recently, Wight et al. (2008, "Introduction of the Foot(More)
The primary objective of this research is to model the biomechanical control system employed by the Central Nervous System (CNS) to maintain posture and balance of the HAT (Head-Arms-Torso) during gait. More specifically, the intent is to stabilize a model of the upper body (HAT) so that the HAT response is similar to that found experimentally in human(More)
