summary A methodology and algorithm are presented that generate motion imitating the way humans complete a lifting task under various loading conditions. The path taken depends on 'natural' parameters: the figure geometry, the given load, the final destination, and especially, the strength model of the agent. Additional user controllable parameters of the motion are the comfort of the action and the perceived exertion of the agent. The algorithm uses this information to incrementally compute a motion path of the end-effector moving the load. It is therefore instantaneously adaptable to changing force, loading, and strength conditions. Various strategies are used to model human behavior that compute the driving torques as the situation changes. The algorithm runs in near-real time and offers an agent-dependent toolkit for fast path prediction. Example are presented for various tasks
