This paper describes experimental results regarding the real time implementation of continuous time recurrent neural networks (CTRNN) and the dynamic back-propagation through time (BPTT) algorithm for the on-line learning control laws. Experiments are carried out to control the balance of a biped robot prototype in its standing posture. The neural controller is trained to compensate for external perturbations by controlling the torso's joint motions. Algorithms are embedded in the real time
