Human and Animal Models for BioRobotics

Owner: Cecilia LASCHI
Semester: 2
Credits: 3

The course will provide some basic knowledge on robot systems and the techniques for the control of movements and behaviour.
It will give basic concepts of robot kinematics and control, sensors for robotics, robot behaviour architectures and robot navigation techniques.
The course will illustrate possible bioinspired approaches to the same problems.
The course then provides principles of Embodied Intelligence and Soft Robotics.
Simple student projects may be organized within the course.

Attendance to lessons is compulsory, material wil be given by the Course owner during lessons.

Students are invited to attendthe seminar that will be delivered on DEC:15 b prof. Helmut Hauser from University of Zurich
