The main application considered in this research and training project is walking humanoid robots, a second application being digital humans. The core scientific and technological results should however have a strong impact on other fields such as industrial manipulator robots. Indeed, the main objective of this research and training project is to enhance the algorithms and control laws of existing humanoid robots in order to obtain a walking behavior versatile and safe enough to be integrated into higher level tasks such as manipulation, vision, tele-operation, interaction with humans, which all require a strong capacity to face unforeseen events in an efficient way. But the objective is to solve this problem with a solution general enough to be applied also to the case of manipulator robots.
