Contents

The lecture Biologically Motivated Robots (BioBots) deals with systems whose mechanical design, sensor concepts and control methodology have been inspired by nature. In particular, the following topics are covered:
  • State of the art research and requirements for the development of BioBots.
  • Sensor systems, sensor fusion and actuator concepts
  • Behaviour-based control architectures
  • Humanoid robots (control, perception, interaction)
  • Applications for BioBots
