This study quantifies and explores the nonlinearities of human arm responses to large force perturbations while subjects (n=10) performed either a position or relax task. Continuous perturbations with large variations of amplitude levels (RMS values of 2.5, 7.5, 22.5 mm displacements) and pulse perturbations with large amplitudes (average of 16...

Learning a motor skill task with Reinforcement Learning still takes a long time. A way to speed up the learning process with- out using much prior knowledge is to use sub-goals. In this study, the use of subgoals decreased the learning time by a factor nine and we show that tests on a real robot give similar results. The price to be paid, in...
