Abstract

The Biologically Inspired Robotics Group (BIRG) at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) has been engaged in understanding the fascinating control and learning abilities observed in animals, and to develop systems that exhibit those qualities. The group develops numerical models of adaptive nonlinear dynamical systems with multiple scales, which facilitate generation of trajectories for robots with many degrees of freedom. The group is also interested in the design and control of autonomous articulated robots with many degrees of freedom, from snake robots to humanoid robots. The group's work in humanoid robotics is concerned with the development of algorithms for movement control based on Dynamical Movement Primitives.
