Recently, many control architectures for robots have been proposed. However, in these architectures, it is difficult to add new functions to existing applications or add new applications. Moreover, developing a robot control system using many researchers makes it difficult to cooperate with each other. In order to deal with these problems, we propose a Humanoid Robot Control Architecture (HRCA) based on Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA). The proposed HRCA is organized as a client/server control architecture. The HRCA is implemented as an integration of many humanoid robot control modules, which correspond to CORBA servers and clients. By applying these to "Bonten-Maru I" a humanoid robot, which is under development in our laboratory, we describe the HRCA modules and the effectiveness of HRCA. We confirmed the effectiveness of HRCA from simulation and experimental results. By using the proposed HRCA, the control of the humanoid robot in a distributed environment such as a Local Area Network (LAN) is possible and thus various humanoid robots in the world can share their own modules with each other via the Internet.
