Experimental Studies of a Neural Oscillator for Biped Locomotion with QRIO
— Recently, there has been a growing interest in biologically inspired biped locomotion control with Central Pattern Generator (CPG). However, few experimental attempts on real hardware 3D humanoid robots have yet been made. Our goal in this paper is to present our achievement of 3D biped locomotion using a neural oscillator applied to a humanoid robot, QRIO. We employ reduced number of neural oscillators as the CPG model, along with a task space Cartesian coordinate system and utilizing entrainment property to establish stable walking gait. We verify robustness against lateral perturbation, through numerical simulation of stepping motion in place along the lateral plane. We then implemented it on the QRIO. It could successfully cope with unknown 3mm bump by autonomously adjusting its stepping period. Sagittal motion produced by a neural oscillator is introduced, and then overlapped with the lateral motion generator in realizing 3D biped locomotion on a QRIO humanoid robot.
