The group's research interests are at the intersection between computational neuroscience, robotics, artificial neural networks, and adaptive algorithms (optimization and learning algorithms). We are in particular interested in developing biologically inspired robots for producing novel types of robots with dexterous locomotion and sensorimotor coordination abilities, and investigating hypotheses of how central nervous systems implement these abilities in animals. More generally, we do research in the following areas: locomotion and movement control, sensorimotor coordination, dynamic simulators of articulated rigid bodies, statistical learning algorithms, evolutionary algorithms, nonlinear dynamical systems, humanoid robotics, amphibious articulated robotics, and modular robotics.
We are currently doing research in the following domains:
(1) Adaptive locomotion and movement control in animals and machines.
(2) Dynamic simulations of articulated rigid bodies
(3) Neurorobotics, in particular, using articulated amphibious robots as tools for modeling lower vertebrate locomotion control
(4) Nonlinear dynamical systems for learning, replaying, and modulating movements
Our objectives are:
(1) gaining a better understanding of animal movement control, in particular pattern generation, gait transition, and dealing with perturbations,
(2) producing novel types of robots with dexterous locomotion and sensorimotor coordination abilities.
