Preliminary survey of backdrivable linear actuators for humanoid robots

Abstract : This paper presents a preliminary survey of the use of direct drive linear motors for joint actuation of a humanoid robot. Their prime asset relies on backdrivability, a significant feature to properly cushion high impacts between feet and ground during dynamic walking or running. Our long-term goal is the design of high performance human size bipedal walking robots. However, this paper focuses on a preliminary feasibility study: the design and experimentation of a mono-actuator lower limb.
