This paper proposes a new trajectory generation scheme for direction turning during biped walking based on our previous study and experiences. For turning in walking, two joints in the sagittal plane should be added in the robot model, and each joint should rotate appropriately considering stability and landing precision. All the angular trajectories for 12 joints in the lower body are approximated by blending polynomials optimized by univariate Dynamic Encoding Algorithm for Searches (uDEAS). The proposed walking scheme is validated via simulation.
