This paper presents a direct teaching method for musculoskeletal robots driven by pneumatic artificial muscles (PAMs). In order to reproduce motions which are directly taught by a human, it is necessary to reproduce the lengths of PAMs because they geometrically determine the posture assumed by the robot. However, it is difficult to measure the lengths of(More)
Morphological computation is the concept for which a well-designed hardware can bear part of the computational cost required for robot’s control and perception. So far, many musculoskeletal robots have been developed by taking inspiration from human’s one and shown superior motion performances. The use of pneumatic artificial muscles (PAMs) has been the key(More)
