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
