Conventional humanoid robots are unable to exhibit the kind of rolling movements at the waist and the body trunk stereotypically associated with the walking style of adult females. For example, a conventional robot cannot perform the walk known as “the catwalk” commonly seen in fashion shows. We developed a control method that allows a realistically simulated adult-size humanoid robot to exhibit a stable dynamic walk with features (such as catwalk, rolling trunk and waist motions, knee stretch walking, etc.) commonly exhibited by fashion models. Our method has the potential to be used in feminized robots in the fashion, advertisement and entertainment industries.
