Utilizing Natural Dynamics for Reliable Legged Locomotion

Project description

Bipedal locomotion in robotics gets new drive

Despite significant development of humanoid robotics in the last 15 years, achieving bipedal locomotion in terms of speed and versatility is still beyond our reach. The NatDyReL project aims at a fundamental paradigm shift in the design and control of humanoid robots. This paves the way for a new generation of intrinsically compliant robots that are capable of adjusting their open loop actuator impedance in real-time to the task. Most importantly, the developed methods will allow for their use and adaptation in other morphologies, including multi-limbed walking or climbing robots.
