This paper describes the mechanism and control of a disturbance force generator that is able to evaluate disturbance compensation control of biped robots quantitatively. The disturbance generator consists of a base, a motor drive system and a suspension system. In order to apply a disturbance force to a biped humanoid robot, a wire wound on a pulley of the disturbance generator is connected with robot’s waist. The effectiveness of the disturbance force generator is verified through several disturbance experiments.
