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
