The Gepetto team aims at analyzing and generating the motion of anthropomorphic systems. Created in 2006, it became rapidly one of the world leader teams in humanoid robotics, unanimously recognized for its expertise in motion generation. The key difficulty of motion generation and control of anthropomorphic systems comes from the redundancy of their tree-like structure with respect to most positioning tasks, the natural instability of the bipedal posture, and the under-actuation of their spatial displacement. We aim at studying this problem by following an interdisciplinary approach focused on three research objects: the humanoid robot, the numerical mannequin and the human body.

The research activity of Gepetto can be described in three levels: fundamental research, integration and application.
