Persistent Environmental Monitoring: Robots That Seemingly Do Nothing Most of the Time
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2017-02-08)
By now, we have a fairly good understanding of how to design coordinated control strategies for making teams of mobile robots achieve geometric objectives in a distributed manner, such as assembling shapes or covering ...
From Learning Movement Primitives to Associative Skill Memories
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2013-08-21)
Skillful and goal-directed interaction with a dynamically changing world is among the hallmarks of human perception and motor control. Understanding the mechanisms of such skills and how they are learned is a long-standing ...
Algebraic Methods for Nonlinear Dynamics and Control
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2013-10-23)
Some years ago, experiments with passive dynamic walking convinced me that finding efficient algorithms to reason about the nonlinear dynamics of our machines would be the key to turning a lumbering humanoid into a graceful ...
Multiscale Robotics and Control: From Microns and Millimeters to Human Size
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2014-02-19)
Established more than half a century ago, the fields of control and robotics are continuously evolving by expanding their scale-independent toolboxes into new domains of science and engineering. In this talk, we use examples ...
Preparing for the Coming Machine Revolution
Spanning academics, business, and the arts, Raffaello D’Andrea’s career is built on his ability to bridge theory and practice. At the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich, his research redefines the ...
