- One of the most important and complex tasks for a humanoid robot is to avoid overturning during a bipedal gait. This work aims at setting the base for designing a general balance controller to be used with any humanoid robot. In addition, it is based on a strong simplification of humanoid model which attempts to be used in real-time applications. In particular, several "stability zones" are defined as function of the criticalness of balance. The results are presented in simulation and experimentally, using the humanoid platforms HOAP-3 and TEO.
