Efficient methods have so far been proposed for planning dynamically stable walking pattern for humanoid robots. However, to guarantee that the reference joint trajectory will produce a safe movement despite modeling errors and perturbations, a stabilizer needs to be implemented on the robot. Though this stabilizer constitutes an essential part of the(More)

In this paper we present a different strategy for generating the trajectory of the swinging leg for a walking humanoid robot which takes into account the effects due to acceleration and velocities of the joints onto the center of mass of the robot. The trajectory of the leg is chosen to be constituted by two forth order polynomials interlaced by a via-point(More)
Our goal is to study collaborative working environments in which human and robotic agents can work together in the achievement of different tasks. The introduction of robots in the field of space applications becomes really useful when performing tasks that are too dangerous, too difficult or even impossible for humans. In this paper we present a(More)
This article reports on the results of a user study that investigates the perceived usability of naı̈ve users conducting two navigation tasks with the HOAP-3 robot. In this user study, the robot was controlled via a Graphical User Interface (GUI) that enabled the users to navigate the robot in the physical environment. The main goal of the user study was to(More)
The aim of this work is to model and simulate the humanoid robot HOAP-3 in the OpenHRP3 platform. Our purpose is to create a virtual model of the robot so that different motions and tasks can be tested in different environments. This will be the first step before testing the motion patterns in the real HOAP-3. We use the OpenHRP3 platform for the creation(More)
This paper presents an advanced control architecture for the full-scale humanoid robot RH-1. The pose control of the prototype is aimed in order to achieve mobile manipulation in collaborative working environments where humans and robots must share the same tasks and space. The kinematic model and a simplified dynamic model of the robot are given. All the(More)
