Project: Research


A man tall 2-leged robot constructed, instrumented and controlled by students form 7 different departments is the task for this project. To built, instrument and control a biped robot require use of professional knowledge from many different disciplines: Mechanics, Electronics, Production, Biomechanics, Control and Computer Science etc. The robot most in the future be able to walk dynamically as humans i.e. it shall be able to walk even if it is not in a totally stable state and it shall stabilize itself when under walking starts to fall. When walking it shall use heel impact when the swinging leg hits the ground and before swinging the leg forward the tip of the toe is the last which touch the ground. To do all this, the robot is instrumented with at least 17 motors which are carefully controlled to track well planned trajectories. These are created based on the task at hand and from incoming transducer signals. The project will take several years and students from the above mentioned areas will do the work under supervision from researchers.
