Abstract

In the near future anthropomorphic robots will turn into an important part of our everyday routine. To successfully perform various tasks these robots require stable walking control algorithms, which could guarantee dynamic balance of the biped robot locomotion. Our research is focused on the development of locomotion algorithms which could provide effective anthropomorphic walking of a robot. As a target robotic platform we utilize an experimental model of a human-size robot - a novel Russian robot AR-601M. In this paper we introduce AR-601M robot and present a model of a biped robot with 11 DoF which simulates a simplified AR-601M robot. The simulation model is implemented in Matlab/Simulink environment and uses walking primitives in order to provide a dynamically stable locomotion.
