Learning to stabilize the head of a quadrupedal robot with an artificial vestibular system

During quadrupedal robot locomotion, there is pitch, yaw, and roll of the head and body due to the stepping. The head motion adversely affects visual sensors embedded in the robot's head. Mammals stabilize the head using a vestibulocollic reflex that detects linear and rotational acceleration. In this paper we describe the use of a machine learning… (More)
