Expanding task functionality in established humanoid robots

Victor Ng-Thow-Hing, Evan Drumwright, Kris Hauser, Qingquan Wu, Joel Wormer
2007 2007 7th IEEE-RAS International Conference on Humanoid Robots  
Many humanoids robots like ASIMO are built to potentially perform more than one type of task.  ...  For the planning and generation of motion on the robot, the Task Matrix embodies a task abstraction model that maps a high level task description into its primitive motions realizable on the robot.  ...  This allows a robot to dynamically switch control architectures depending on the task mode it is in.  ...
