Bipedal running gaits may be self-stable if they rely on the intrinsic system dynamics to attenuate deviations. This use of passive dynamics for gait stability has been observed in biological running and applied for running robotics, supported with the results of numerical simulations. It is an important aspect of the development of fast and...

This research considers using center of mass (CoM) height variation as an input for balance control on a humanoid robot. Traditional balance strategies for humanoid robots are taking a step, control of the center of pressure (CoP) location, a result of the ‘ankle strategy’, and changing the angular momentum about the CoM, for example by a ‘hip...
