Recording and analysis of human locomotion in different scenarios


Enrico Chiovetto


To provide the experimental and theoretical basis of the KOROIBOT project, human motion capture experiments are currently ongoing. These include different scenarios, such as walking on soft ground, on stairs and on slopes (see movie). These recordings will serve to establish rules to transfer Human motions and control laws to humanoids, taking into account the different characteristics of the systems.
