Humanoid Path Planner - RBPRM-CORBA module

Copyright 2015 LAAS-CNRS

Author: Steve Tonneau

##Description hpp-rbprm-corba implements python bindings for hpp-rbprm, and presents a few example files. Please refer to this link for information on hpp-rbprm.

##Installation on ubuntu-14.04 64 bit with ros-indigo

To install hpp-rbprm-corba:

  1. Install HPP-RBPRM and its dependencies - see

  2. Install HPP-AFFORDANCE-CORBA along with its dependencies

  1. Use CMake to install the library. For instance:

       mkdir $HPP_RBPRM_CORBA_DIR/build
       cd $HPP_RBPRM_CORBA_DIR/build
       cd cmake ..	
       make install


Open $DEVEL_DIR/install/share/doc/hpp-rbprm-corba/doxygen-html/index.html in a web brower and you will have access to the code documentation. If you are using ipython, the documentation of the methods implemented is also directly available in a python console.


To see the planner in action, two examples from our IJRR submission with HyQ are available. Examples with HRP-2 are also provided, though they can only be executed if you have access to HRP-2 model.

  • First of all, retrieve and build the HyQ model from its github repository:

    $ rosrun xacro hyq_description/robots/hyq_model.urdf.xacro -o hyq.urdf

  • Make sure to install hyq.urdf in $HPP_DEVEL_DIR/install/share/hpp-rbprm-corba/

  • The planning is decomposed in two phases / scripts. First, a root path is computed (* files). Then, the contacts are generated along the computed path (* files). The scripts are located in the folder /scripts/demos.

  • To see the different steps of the process run

    $ ./

The script include comments explaining the different calls to the library. You can call the different methods a() ... d() to see the different steps of the planning.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
