A new humanoid robot capable of verious motion is proposed in this paper, which has a 2 DOF wasit and 2 DOF trunk. A new upper body mechanism is mounted on a leg machine, WABIAN2/LL, and a full scale humanoid robot, WABIAN-2, is constructed in this study. Its trunk is designed to bend forwards, backwards and sideways and rotate in combination with a 2-DOF waist. Also, the upper body is designed in way that makes it able to use a walk-assist machine. Basic walking experiments with and without a walk-assist machine are conducted, and the effectiveness of the mechanism of WABIAN-2 is confirmed.

Abstract

A new humanoid robot capable of verious motion is proposed in this paper, which has a 2 DOF wasit and 2 DOF trunk. A new upper body mechanism is mounted on a leg machine, WABIAN2/LL, and a full scale humanoid robot, WABIAN-2, is constructed in this study. Its trunk is designed to bend forwards, backwards and sideways and rotate in combination with a 2-DOF waist. Also, the upper body is designed in way that makes it able to use a walk-assist machine. Basic walking experiments with and without a walk-assist machine are conducted, and the effectiveness of the mechanism of WABIAN-2 is confirmed.
