Congratulations to Dr. Hall!
This thesis, written by PhD student Kwan Suk Kim posits that no matter how hard we try, collisions will always happen, and therefore we need to confront and study them both during autonomous navigation or dexterous manipulation. Chapter 5 connects…
Liquid Cooled Viscoelastic actuators are aimed at fielding human-centered lightweight robot structures with high payload capabilities and high mechanical robustness. This technology excels at the following five axes: energy efficiency, torque density, mechanical robustness, position and force controllability.
This study presents a theoretical method for planning and controlling agile bipedal locomotion based on robustly tracking a set of non-periodic keyframe states.
Kwan Suk, successfully defended his PhD Thesis on Intelligent Collision Management in Dynamic Environments for Human-Centered Robots. Huge Congratulations!
The video below shows the new Draco liquid cooled prototype leg produced as a collaboration between the Human Centered Robotics Lab and Apptronik Systems.. We have developed a new liquid cooled viscoelastic actuator capable of significantly surpassing the mechanical power of…
