Modeling and control of multi-contact centers of pressure and internal forces in humanoid robots
Abstract— This paper presents a methodology for the modeling and control of internal forces and moments produced during multi-contact interactions between humanoid robots and the environment. The approach is based on the virtual linkage model which provides a physical representation of the internal forces and moments acting between the various contacts. The forces acting at the contacts are decomposed into internal and resulting forces and the latter are represented at the robot’s center of mass. A grasp/contact matrix describing the complex interactions between contact forces and center of mass behavior is developed. Based on this model, a new torque-based approach for the control of internal forces is suggested and illustrated on the Asimo humanoid robot. The new controller is integrated into the framework for whole-body prioritized multitasking enabling the unified control of operational tasks, postures, and internal forces.
