Enhancing biomorphic agility through variable stiffness

Project description

Cognitive Systems, Interaction, Robotics Endowing a highly biomimetic robot hand-arm system with the agility, robustness and versatility of the human motor system The goal of STiFF is to equip a highly biomimetic robot hand-arm system with the agility, robustness and versatility that are hallmarks of the human motor system by understanding and mimicking the variable stiffness models that are so effectively employed by the human central nervous system. The project will develop novel methodologies to comprehend how the human arm can adapt. The central question that this project focuses on for both the human and robotic arm is: how is stiffness used to enhance performance?
