Embodied Motion Intelligence for Cognitive, Autonomous Robots

Project description

Cognitive Systems and Robotics The EMICAB consortium takes a comprehensive approach to the engineering of artificial cognitive systems. The objective is to integrate smart body mechanics in intelligent planning and control of motor behaviour, accounting equally for problems in neuroscience (multi-sensory integration, internal body models, intelligent action planning) and technology (smart body mechanics, distributed embodied sensors and brain-like controllers). The overall technological goal is a dexterous hexapod robot that exploits its bodily resources for cognitive functions.
