A general optimization formulation for walk-to-run transition prediction using 3D skeletal model is presented. The walk-to-run transition is used to connect fast walking to slow running by using a step-to-step transition formulation. Walk-to-run transition includes four phases: double support walking phase, single support swinging phase, running phase, and finally single support running phase. The transition task is formulated as an optimization problem in which the dynamic effort is minimized subject to basic physical constraints. The joint torques and ground reaction forces (GRF) are recovered and analyzed from the simulation. The optimal solution of transition simulation is obtained in a few minutes by using predictive dynamics method.
