Our research aims to develop an anthropomorphic saxophone-playing robot; as an approach to understand the human motor control from an engineering point of view. In this paper, we present theWaseda Saxophonist Robot No. 2 (WAS-2) which is composed of 22 degrees of freedom (DOF). In particular, he functioning of the lips, fingers, tongue, oral cavity and lungs have been mechanically simulated to enable WAS-2 to play an alto saxophone. Furthermore, in order to ensure the accuracy of the air pressure control, a feed-forward control system with dead time compensation has been implemented.A set of experimentswere carried out to verify the effectiveness of the proposed system. From the experimental results, the range of sound pressure was increased and the air pressure control was improved.
