Logical Control of Robots

Antropomorphic robots are treated as multivariable mechanical systems with large number of degrees of freedom. In order to make the control of antropomorphic robots feasible multilevel decision making, including the human operator, is assumed.

Such an approach involves a coordination controller which can be synthesized using logical description of locomotion. Methodology for logical description of locomotion based on automatic data processing is presented.
