Abstract

Autonomous behaviors in humanoid robots are generally implemented by considering the robot as two separate parts, using the lower body for locomotion and balancing, and the upper body for manipulation actions. This paper provides a unified framework for autonomous grasping with bipedal robots using a compliant whole-body controller. The grasping action is based on parametric grasp planning for unknown objects using shape primitives, which allows a generation of multiple grasp poses on the object. A reachability analysis is used to select the final grasp, and also for triggering a base repositioning behavior that locates the robot on a better position for grasping the desired object more confidently, considering all grasps and the uncertainty in reaching the desired position. The whole-body controller accounts for perturbations at any level and ensures a successful execution of the intended task. The approach is implemented in the humanoid robot TORO, and different experiments demonstrate its robustness and flexibility.
