Roller blading biped robot

In this project we wish to explore the different locomotor behaviors that can be achieved by using our bipedal CPG framework.

Roller blading is used as an example of unnatural locomotion that is learned, instead of being innate as a result of evolution.

We may explore the integration on our CPG framework several kinds of strategies:

  • Reinforcement Learning
  • Learning from demonstration
  • Evolutionary Algorithms
  • Inverse dynamics planning

Implementation of ROS in bipedal robot

In this project we will implement ROS operative system for an autonomous biped robot.

This project serves the main goal of a learning exercise to use ROS, a meta-operative system widely used in research. e.g. Example of ROS using robots
We want to explore ROS features for the development of autonomous robots in legged locomotion, navigation and other general problems.

Legged robot with dynamixel servos

The goal of this project is to explore the development of several types of legged robots, e.g. quadruped and hexapod.

As a starting point we will use digital dynamixel servos and the controller used with Bioloid's kit.
The main objective is to study the limitations of such hardware for the development of a legged robot, so that we can expand its features and improve its characteristics.

In this work we will:

  • Design a legged robot
  • Study hardware limitations on:
    • Servo actuation
