Learning Mobility for Real Legged Robots

Project description

Robots get a leg up on locomotion

The robotics industry has been an important cornerstone of modern automated industrial processes. It’s also one of the most heavily researched topics for applications in commercial and industrial sectors. Working leg mechanisms have recently been heavily researched as they provide robots with increased mobility and the ability to adapt to most terrain. Yet these advances still face limits when it comes to complex situations. The EU-funded LeMo project plans to research methods by which learned behaviours can be directly transferred from simulations to the robots to provide them with more advanced motion capabilities. This way they aim to surpass current limitations, providing a better understanding of robot locomotion.
