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.

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 analysis of different control methods for legged locomotion. It also trains students in making critical analysis of key articles in the field, and in designing their own models and locomotion controllers for legged
