REEM-A, the humanoid robot built by Pal Technology, is learning new features.

The equilibrium has been improved thanks to a new algorithm that detects external forces and adjusts the posture of the robot to dump the disturbances. A video, can be seen on-line.

We used the force/torque sensor to detect the reaction force of the ground (the Center of Pressure) and move the robot's hip accordingly. In the video you can see as the robot can even decide to take a step when the pusching strong is too high to keep the equilibrium.
