Experimental Study on Dynamic Reactionless Motions with DLR’s Humanoid Robot Justin

Wimböck, Thomas and Albu-Schäffer, Alin and Hirzinger, Gerd (2009) Experimental Study on Dynamic Reactionless Motions with DLR’s Humanoid Robot Justin. In: Proceedings. IROS, International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems, 11. Okt. -15. Okt. 2009, St. Louis, USA.



The capabilities of DLR’s multi-DOF humanoid robot Justin are extended with the help of a dynamic torque control component for base reaction minimization. Since the mobile base of the robot comprises springs, reactions induced by arm/torso motions lead to vibrations and deteriorate the performance. The control component is derived from the equation of motion of the robot, represented as an underactuated system, and partitioned into a “driven” subsystem (one of the arms), and a “compensating” subsystem (the other arm, with or w/o torso contribution). The control component is then embedded into the existing sophisticated controller structure of Justin, as a feedforward component, with additional control signals from an augmented PD feedback controller. It was possible to obtain satisfactory performance with a very “soft” compensatory subsystem. The experimental results confirmed the potential of this model-based approach for use in a complex multi-DOF system. As far as we know, this is the first time that a dynamic-coupling compensating controller is applied to a real system of such complexity, utilizing thereby a torque control interface.
