Evaluation of walk optimisation techniques for the NAO robot

Locomotion performance is a critical component of any humanoid robot application. The procedure of optimising a walk engine has a high cost in both resources and time. The selection of the most appropriate optimisation algorithm, fitness function, and parameter space to maximise the benefit-cost ratio can dramatically improve the performance of the optimisation process.
