Abstract

Current humanoid walking gaits are ill-suited to traversing low-friction environments such as ice. For robots to be useful outdoors in the winter they must be able to move across ice without falling over. In this paper we present a skating gait for a small humanoid robot equipped with ice skates to enable it to traverse indoor and outdoor ice surfaces faster than an inverted pendulum-based walking gait would allow.
