Bioinspired Legged Robots

Robust, dynamic, and agile locomotion in unstructured terrain and on complex and natural substrates is an unreached goal in legged robotics. We aim to develop state-of-the-art dynamically running legged machines, and apply machine learning, sensor fusion, and computational robot models.

Biped Locomotion in Guinea Fowl (Numida meleagris)

We are interested in porting knowledge from biomechanical studies of running birds onto dynamical running biped robot platforms, and test controllers, biomechanical design blueprints, and aspects of neurcontrol of running birds.

Arachnabot - Spider Inspired Robots

What makes spiders highly interesting for robotic research is their extreme agility in rough terrain, stark scaling in body size, and capability to produce fast motion at high torque, i.e. in case of jumping spiders.
