16-899E: Legged Locomotion
Spring 2007
Tuesdays/Thursdays 4:30-6
NSH 3002
Instructors: Chris Atkeson, cga@cs


Course Description

This IGERT/QoLT course explores the principles and practicalities of legged locomotion (both biped and quadruped). We will focus on developing control algorithms for a human-sized bipedal robot and for a small quadruped robot "Little Dog". There will be a mix of lectures given by the instructor and presentations by participants. Participants will read and present key papers, explore research issues in simulation, and ideally test ideas on actual robots. We are also interested in insights into human locomotion and how to program graphical characters.
