    • Design and Gait Synthesis for a 3D Lower Body Humanoid 

      Choudhury, Safwan (University of Waterloo, 2013-01-02)
      Bipedal locomotion is a challenging control engineering problem due to the non-linear dynamics and postural instability of the bipedal form. In addition to these challenges, some dynamical effects such as the ground reaction ...
    • Design Feasibility of an Active Ankle-Foot Stabilizer 

      Mistry, Taresh D. (University of Waterloo, 2010-08-30)
      Walking is the most common form of mobility in humans. For lower limb mobility impairments, a common treatment is to prescribe an ankle-foot orthosis (AFO) or brace, which is a passive device designed to resist undesired ...
    • Determinants of Increased Energy Cost in Prosthetic Gait 

      Peasgood, Michael (University of Waterloo, 2004)
      The physiological energy requirements of prosthetic gait in lower-limb amputees have been observed to be significantly greater than those for able-bodied subjects. However, existing models of energy flow in walking have ...
    • Gait shape control for 2-D.O.F bipedal robots using hybrid virtual holonomic constraints 

      Al Lawati, Mohamed Ali (University of Waterloo, 2014-07-29)
      Motion control for bipedal robots is an active research area because bipedal robots can perform tasks and work in terrain where wheeled robots cannot. Researchers have developed bipedal robots that are able to walk, run ...
