 Whole Body Motion Planning for the Humanoid Robots

As a human, we use whole body motions in different daily activities. For humanoid robots, generating whole body motions have been a challenging task because of mainly two reasons. First, most of the humanoid robots possess multiple Degrees Of Freedom (DOF). That leads to the exploration of a highly dimensioned configuration space. Second, humanoid robots need to maintain stability. In this directed research work, we seek to reduce the problem of multiple DOFs by creating a virtual kinematic tree-based structure for motion planning. Experiments are done in a simulation environment on Atlas humanoid robot. Current results and related future work are discussed
