Abstract

The methodology to design and implement balancing and walking gaits for Tao-Pie-Pie, a small 30-cm tall humanoid robot was presented. Tao-Pie-Pie is a fully autonomous robot with all power, sensing and processing done on-board. It is also minomalistic design with only 6 d.o.f. Sensor feedback was provided by two gyroscopes that provide angular velocity in the lateral and saggital plane, and a CMOS camera providing vision information. Tao-Pie-Pie uses Bezier curves to interpolate settings between the control points.
