Simulating Human Table Tennis with a Biomimetic Robot Setup

  title={Simulating Human Table Tennis with a Biomimetic Robot Setup},
  author={Katharina M{\"u}lling and Jens Kober and Jan Peters},
Playing table tennis is a difficult motor task which requires fast movements, accurate control and adaptation to task parameters. Although human beings see and move slower than most robot systems they outperform all table tennis robots significantly. In this paper we study human table tennis and present a robot system that mimics human striking behavior. Therefore we model the human movements involved in hitting a table tennis ball using discrete movement stages and the virtual hitting point… CONTINUE READING
