In the context of humanoid skill learning, movement primitives have gained much attention because of their compact representation and convenient combination with a myriad of optimization approaches. Among them, a well-known scheme is to use Dynamic Movement Primitives (DMPs) with reinforcement learning (RL) algorithms. While various remarkable results have been reported, skill learning with physical constraints has not been sufficiently investigated. For example, when RL is employed to optimize the robot joint trajectories, the exploration noise could drive the resulting trajectory out of the joint limits. In this paper, we focus on robot skill learning characterized by joint limit avoidance, by introducing the novel Constrained Dynamic Movement Primitives (CDMPs). By controlling a set of transformed states (called exogenous states) instead of the original DMPs states, CDMPs are capable of maintaining the joint trajectories within the safety limits. We validate CDMPs on the humanoid robot iCub, showing the applicability of our approach.
