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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
