Robotics and its service applications with biped robots have faced an upsurge lately as this category of robots is very suitable for the environments designed for humans where they are supposed to operate. However, bipedal locomotion has proven to be a challenge in theory and practice due to the high dimensionality of the problem once walking gaits typically involve precise real-time control of multiple actuators and sensors coupled with complex dynamical systems. Concomitantly, reinforcement learning (RL) and its deep version (DRL) are becoming a prominent approach in solving such challenging control problems due to their capacity to work on continuous and model-free processes. In this context, our goal in this work is to apply DRL for learning a stable walk of a simulated and a real version of a humanoid robot while assessing its effectiveness for robotic locomotion tasks and, in particular, bipedal locomotion.
