Petar Kormushev is a senior postdoctoral researcher at the
Advanced Robotics department of the Italian Institute of
Technology, doing research on the iCub humanoid robot and a
Barrett WAM robot.

In 2009 he graduated with a PhD degree in Computational
Intelligence from Tokyo Institute of Technology. His
research interests include robotics and machine learning,
especially reinforcement learning for intelligent robot

He holds a MSc degree in Artificial Intelligence, a MSc
degree in Bio- and Medical Informatics, and a BSc degree in
Computer Science from Sofia University. He has participated
in many scientific projects, including European INFRAWEBS
project for designing the future Semantic Web, and Japanese
NEDO project for developing a common basis for next-
generation robots.

He has won a number of prestigious awards, including a
“John Atanasoff” award, a “St. Kliment Ohridski” award, and
a 4-year Monbukagakusho/MEXT Japanese research fellowship.

Online Regeneration of Bipedal Walking Gait Optimizing Footstep Placement and Timing

The video presents experiments during which a humanoid robot is subjected to external pushes and recovers stability by changing the step placement and duration.

It starts from showing effectiveness of the feedback controller during stepping in place. Then it continues to present how the developed algorithm regenerates the step placement and duration to regain stability after lateral pushes. It concludes with showing how the algorithm works during forward locomotion.
