First Steps Toward Supervised Learning for Underactuated Bipedal Robot Locomotion, with Outdoor Experiments on the Wave Field. Da, X.; Hartley, R.; and Grizzle, J. W
abstract   bibtex   
Supervised learning is used to build a control policy for robust, dynamic walking of an underactuated bipedal robot. The training and testing sets consist of controllers based on a full dynamic model, virtual constraints, and parameter optimization to meet torque limits, friction cone, and environmental conditions. The controllers are designed to induce periodic walking gaits at various speeds, both forward and backward, and for various constant ground slopes, flat ground, uphill, and downhill. They are also designed to induce aperiodic gaits that transition among a subset of the periodic gaits in a fixed number of steps. In experiments, the learned policy allows a 3D bipedal robot to recover from a significant kick. It also enables the robot to walk down a 22 degree slope and walk on sinusoidally varying terrain, all without using a camera.
