Abstract : What are the common characteristics of humanoid robots and quadrotors? Well, not many... Therefore, this document is focused on the development of algorithms allowing to dynamically control a robot while staying generic with respect to the model of the robot and the task that needs to be solved. Numerical optimal control is good candidate to achieve such objective. However, it suffers from several difficulties such as a high number of parameters to tune and a relatively important computation time. This document presents several ameliorations allowing to reduce these problems. On one hand, the tasks can be ordered according to a hierarchy and solved with an appropriate algorithm to lower the number of parameters to tune. On the other hand, machine learning can be used to initialize the optimization solver or to generate a simplified model of the robot, and therefore can be used to decrease the computation time.
