Courses

Analysis and modelling of locomotion

The lecture presents an overview of the state of the art in the analysis and modeling of human locomotion and the underlying motor circuits. Multiple aspects are considered including neurophysiology, gait characterization, biomechanics, numerical modeling, neuroprosthetics, and links to biped robots

Computational motor control

The course gives (1) a review of different types of numerical models of control of locomotion and movement in animals, (2) a presentation of different techniques for designing models, and (3) an analysis of the use and testing of those models in robotics and neuroprosthetics.

Topics in Autonomous Robotics

Students will be introduced to modern approaches in control and design of autonomous robots through lectures and exercises.

Robotics practicals

The practicals can include the following topics:

  • Teaching Robots to Accomplish a Manipulation Task
  • Experimenting with haptic interfaces
  • Controlling a serial robot ABB IRB 120
  • Control of the Micro Delta Direct Drive robot
  • LiniX, linear axis, assembly and control

    Legged robots

    The course presents the design, control, and applications of legged robots. It gives a review of different types of legged robots (including two-, four- and multi-legged robots), and an analysis of different control methods for legged locomotion.
