This work follows the interest developed by the author in Humanoid Robotics over the past year, while working on his dissertation for the conclusion of the Master’s degree in Biomedical Engineering. The study of locomotion of humanlike robots is a necessary step in understanding how we can achieve a successful approximation of human locomotion. It provides the opportunity to mesh various knowledge fields such as Physiology, Anatomy, Mathematics, Electronics, and Informatics, with the goal of achieving something that will hopefully be helpful in the rehabilitation of patients and the development of prosthetics. Such an undertaking is a prime example of what a Biomedical Engineer should thrive to do, and a Doctorate Program in the area should provide the necessary conditions to do so.
