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

Competencies / intended learning achievements

Upon successful completion of the module, students will be able to
  • characterize innovative concepts and methods for mastering complex robot systems
  • characterize the control of biological movement systems
  • explain essential procedures of softcomputing,
  • use methods for controlling complex biologically motivated robots (e.g. walking machines, humanoid robots).
  • develop individual robot capabilities in independent modules.
