BoS and XCoM Analysis


Considering the BoS (Base of Support), the CoP always
stays within BoS. Set the boundary as . Thus, < <
+ . BoS is computed by convex hull of points of feet.
For a healthy human, if not stepping, CoP could be changed
within BoS by motions such as ankle rotation or tiptoe
standing. BoS could also be changed by stepping or feet
movement.

BoS and XCoM Analysis

If < < < + (or < 0 < < 0), the human will not
fall forward(or backward) and no more action is required unless XCOM change
sign.

BoS and XCoM Analysis

If < < < + (or < < < ), the human will fall if the
CoP is fixed at 0 . Thus CoP should move forward (or backward) to avoid falling. The
required time for movement is related to distance from XCoM to BoS boundary
proposed in next section.

BoS and XCoM Analysis

If < < + < (or < < < + ), the human


will fall even if the CoP change within BoS arbitrarily fast. The only method
to avoid falling is taking one or more step.

The Margin of Stability and 2-D XCOM


The margin of stability is the minimum distance from XCoM to BoS boundary

= min

Considering 2-D situation, in the X-Y plane, XCoM is defined as:


= +

, +

The margin of stability in 2-D is the minimum distance from XCoM to BoS
boundary
= min

XCOM for Continuous Motions


For construction workers, the motions are continuous. Thus time should also be
take into account when considering a set of actions.
In most papers,

However, =

Since z is the Z component of CoM, Z should be time-variant

Time-variant BoS
For construction workers, the BoS is changing during motions, thus it is also
required to measure BoS(t) with different time parameters.

Dynamic Diagram of BoS&CoP


Change during Stepping

Standing

Moving CoP back to push CoM forward,


XCoM is a bit forward than CoM due to a
positive CoM velocity
BoS is unchanged before the swing foot
contacts with the ground.

Dynamic Diagram of BoS&CoP


Change during Stepping

CoM velocity continues increasing since


CoP<CoM and XCoM moves forward further
BoS is changed since the swing foot contacts
with the ground.

Dynamic Diagram of BoS&CoP


Change during Stepping

BoS is changed since the swing foot and


support foot contact with the ground at the
same time.

Finally BoS is only decided by


another foot. The analysis is similar
to the first one.

To derive time for reaction, intuitive solution is to calculate the approximate

This is proposed by A.L. Hof* in The condition for dynamic stability A.L. 2005:
The XCoM will reach the BoS in a time-to- contact , about equal to
