Courses

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 goal of this lab series is to practice the various theoretical frameworks acquired in the courses on a variety of robots, ranging from industrial robots to autonomous mobile robots, to robotic devices, all the way to interactive robots.

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.
