humanoid, motor driver, communication system

This paper deals with humanoid robot motor driver and sensor boards, whose communication systems are expensive to upgrade because they are implemented in both types of boards. Then, we must re-develop motor driver boards and sensor boards to change communication function. Function of communication with host computer is the very important function. However, it is hard to evaluate and compare methods of communication. So, we divide the function of motor driver to communication and driving motor. And we suggest the configuration of interchangeable communication system.
