Dynamic Locomotion Group
Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems, Stuttgart
The scientific goal of the Dynamic Locomotion Group (DLG) is to understand dynamic and legged locomotion in Biology, by using computational and physical models such as legged robots.
We implement, design, and test blueprints from functional morphology, neurocontrol, and biomechanics in simulation and robots. Robotic systems are then applied as testing platforms that produce rich, high-dimensional research data under realistic conditions.
We focus on bioinspired and biomimicking robot locomotion, bioinspired approaches to sensor design, locomotion learning, and locomotion biomechanics in animals and robotic machines.
