      This paper deals with multi-objective optimization in gait planning of a 7-dof biped robot during its double support phase, while ascending and descending some staircases. For determining dynamic balance margin of the robot in terms of zero-moment point, its double support phase has been assumed to be consisting of two single support phases on non-coincidental parallel surfaces. Thus, dynamic balance margin of the biped robot during its double support phase is obtained by using a virtual zero-moment point of the system. Moreover, a smooth transition from single to double support phases in a cycle is to be maintained for the walking robots. Two contrasting objectives, namely power consumption and dynamic balance margin have been considered during optimization. Pareto-optimal fronts of solutions are obtained using genetic algorithm and particle swarm optimization algorithm, separately. To the best of the authors' knowledge, it is the first attempt to solve multi-objective optimization problem in double support phase of a biped robot.
