  Biped - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In most bipeds this is an active process, requiring constant adjustment of balance.
Some evolutionary biologists have suggested that a crucial stage in the evolution of some or all bipeds was the ability to stand, which generally improves the ability to see (and perhaps otherwise detect) distant dangers or resources.
They were already "falling", and preventing the tripped leg from aborting that fall is sufficient to cause bipeds to collapse to the ground.

 biped
Bifurcation diagrams of the periodic motions of the biped are used to demonstrate the improvements in controller performance that arise from the application of the proposed method.
Scaling laws for the model predict that walking speed is proportional to stance angle, stance angle is proportional to gamma(1/3), and that the gravitational power used is proportional to upsilon(4) where upsilon is the velocity along the slope.
Physical admissibility of the biped trajectory is characterized in terms of the equivalent force-moment and zero-moment point.

 BIPED (Bi-protocol Page Editor)
BIPED is a nifty little Perl5 CGI script that allows you to view both the source code and the rendering of your page within a single screen.
BIPED uses uses 2 protocols to get the 2 views of the your page so that you can both see the source code and also how the page is rendered through both the server (httpd, gopherd etc) and the WWW browser.
BIPED presents all of this source in a TEXTAREA form element so that you can scroll around to see all the source, and edit it, in a small (user defineable sized) box.

 Oldest biped skeleton discovered
A joint Ethiopian-US team of palaeontologists announced on Saturday they had discovered the world's oldest biped skeleton to be unearthed so far, dating it to between 3.8 and four million years old.
Latimer and his Ethiopian colleague D. Yohannes Haile-Selassie said the newly discovered skeleton had been determined to be capable of walking upright on two feet because of the nature of the ankle bone.
This was the "revolutionary" aspect of the discovery, the scientists told journalists, in that it would help them learn how species like those from which modern mankind, homo sapiens, descended first learned to walk on two feet.

We built the Planar Biped, a planar two-legged running machine, to test the control of bipedal running using the one-leg algorithms.
The arrangement of body, legs, hips, and actuators provides a means to control the position of the feet with respect to the body, to generate an axial thrust with each leg, and to provide hip torques during running.
We have used the planar biped to study locomotion on rough terrain, running at high speed, and gymnastic maneuvers.

 Maxforums - Biped and bones problem.
The shoulders of the character are at such an angle to the lower arm, that biped cannot be plainly used to animate it.
You'll need to re-attach the legs to the hip, and the arms to the upper torso, then you can set up IK Solvers for the legs and arms, and also create splines to be used as swivel controllers so the legs and arms don't bend the wrong way.
Since the shoulder is angled away from the natural line from the forearm, biped cannot be modified into a position where the upper arm is in CORRECT place, while the lower arm is also aligned to rotate correctly.

The robot uses the same OPEN-R architecture as Sony's four-legged autonomous Entertainment Robot "AIBO".Two technologies applying the OPEN-R architecture, the "actuator" that moves the joints and "Whole Body Coordinated Dynamic Control" for real-time control of the joints realize the biped walking motion of the SDR-3X.
The development of OPEN-R was announced in June 1998 as an architecture for entertainment robots.Components of the robot such as hardware, movement software and information processing programs (e.g.
