Robotic algorithms of kinematics, dynamics, and optimization provide powerful tools for modeling human and human behavior. We have developed a human model consisting of over 150 degrees-of-freedom skeleton, nearly 1000 muscles, and spinal nerve networks. The algorithms and software are also developed to compute somatosensory information from the motion capture data based on the human model. The modeling of spinal nerve reflex is also proposed using the human model and the artificial neural network. The human behavior model is being developed using the hidden Markov model and statistical algorithms. In this talk we will discuss the fundamental algorithms and the recent result of analysis.
