A Simple and Robust Hierarchical Control System for a Walking Robot

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


The present work applies a control architecture proposed by W.T. Powers to several problems in robotics, and suggests that it may have wide practical applicability. The architecture is called (Hierarchical) Perceptual Control Theory, or HPCT, and was proposed by Powers as a possible organisation for living control systems.
