This paper explores a question rarely addressed in studies of human/humanoid gait and related
movements. In the case of slow motion with the possibility of stopping and retreating, the
human/humanoid has a full control over his movements, while in the latter case called “normal” motion
he falls practically out of control. The idea might arise to relate the first situation with stability and the
latter with instability. However, the notion of stability, defined in the system theory, does not agree with
this and in order to avoid the confusion we here suggest the terms safe and risky motions.
Keywords: Human/humanoid gait, stability, safe and risky motion, mass-centre projection, zero-moment
