Modélisation et optimisation de la marche d'un robot bipède avec genoux anthropomorphiques

Abstract : The design of humanoids robot has been a tricky challenge for several years. Due to the kinematic complexity of human joints, their movements are notoriously difficult to be reproduced by a mechanism. The human knees allow movements including rolling and sliding, and therefore the design of new bio-inspired robots is of utmost importance for the reproduction of anthropomorphic walking in a robot. In this thesis, the kinematic characteristics of knees were analyzed and a mechanical solution reproducing them is proposed. The geometrical, kinematic and dynamic models are created together with an impact model for a piped robot with the knees proposed. The walking is studied as of a problem of parametric optimization under constraints. The trajectories of walking are simulated approximately by mathematical functions for two gaits: one of a single support with impacts and one of double supports followed by a simple support and then an impact. Energy criteria allow comparing the robot provided with the mechanism of rolling knees and a robot provided with revolute knees connection. The results of the optimizations show that the rolling knee brings a decrease of the sthenic criterion. The energy optimization shows that the articular couples are weaker on hips what engenders a decrease of the mass of the actuators of the robot. Finally, energy gains are possible by associating spring systems.
