Bipedal humanoid robots have been around for over 30 years, but developing and implementing intelligent motion algorithms to keep their moves from looking Frankenstein-esque have remained a challenge. Using NI hardware, LabVIEW, and third-party add-ons, a team of engineers at the Temasek Polytechnic School of Engineering have built a teenager-sized humanoid robot with a smooth gait.

The project focused on developing a user-friendly graphical interface to implement motion control algorithms. Engineers used LabVIEW to create control software that students used to easily develop and debug the program, and they’re going to be able to flexibly adapt and redeploy the program in the future on other robotics projects. PXI-8101 was the main system controller and students programmed wireless LAN using the LabVIEW Internet Toolkit. The LabVIEW MathScript RT Module executed The MathWorks, Inc. MATLAB® code to generate gait trajectory.

 

LabVIEW reduced development time to one semester, made it possible to perform motion simulation with SolidWorks, and executed code created with MATLAB. The bipedal humanoid robot made its debut at the SRG 2014 Singapore Robotics Games.
