The lecture "Biologically Motivated Robots" (BioBots) deals with systems whose mechanical construction, sensor concepts, and control methods have been inspired by nature. The following topics will be covered:
- Status of research and requirements for the development of BioBots
- Sensor systems, sensor fusion and driving concepts
- Adaptive control (neural networks, fuzzy-control, Reinforcement-Learning, genetic algorithms and neuro-oscillators) and Behaviour based control architectures
- Skills of humanoid robots (locomotion, manipulation, mimics, perception, interaction)
- Application for BioBot
This course is partly build upon the lecture "Foundations of Robotics". The content of this lecture is assumed to be well known.
- Bachelor degree in computer science
- Core module of the LG Embedded Systems and Robotics
