Contents

The lecture Biologically motivated robots (BioBots) deals with systems whose mechanical construction, sensor concepts and control methods have been inspired by nature. The following themes will be taught:
  • 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-oszillators)
  • Behaviour based control architectures
  • Application for BioBots
