Adaptive Modular Architecture for Rich Motor Skills

Project description

Cognitive Systems and Robotics Richness of biological motor behavior in robotic systems The motor skills of today’s robots still must be qualified as poor. The AMARSi Integrated Project aims at a qualitative jump toward biological richness of robotic motor skills. To achieve this goal, a number of innovative scientific concepts and interdisciplinary research methods will be implemented.
Acquiring rich motor skills will change the role of robots in our human’s society in two fundamental ways. First, such robots will be much more versatile than today, with greatly expanded ranges of practical usages. And second, the naturalness and compliance of their motor behavior will make them blend into the everyday routines of human society, physically safe and psychologically acceptable.
