A Multilevel, Posture-based Model for Motor Control in Simulation and Robotic Applications
Divya A. Gunasekaran
Dartmouth TR2011-691

Abstract: This paper presents a multilevel, posture-based motor control model intended to plan collision-free movements in a 3D environment while maintaining computationally efficiency and accurately imitating human and primate motor function. Our model is a comprehensive approach that addresses the storage and lookup of postures and movements, path planning and the generation of new movements, and learning with experience. We demonstrate the functionality and computational advantages of the model through preliminary testing on a humanoid robot.
