    Abstract

    This paper presents results of experimental investigation of the falling down of human body in order to identify significant characteristics and parameters that help for safe similar situations with humanoid robots. Experiments are discussed with results from lab tests that give both behavior and values of the biomechanics of falling down of human body. Simulations of humanoid robot falling verified the strategies concluded from the human falling down.
