2.74 Bio-inspired Robotics

Class Info

Interdisciplinary approach to bio-inspired design, with emphasis on principle extraction applicable to various robotics research fields, such as robotics, prosthetics, and human assistive technologies. Focuses on three main components: biomechanics, numerical techniques that allow multi-body dynamics simulation with environmental interaction and optimization, and basic robotics techniques and implementation skills. Students integrate the components into a final robotic system project of their choosing through which they must demonstrate their understanding of dynamics and control and test hypothesized design principles. Students taking graduate version complete additional assignments. Enrollment may be limited due to laboratory capacity.

This class has 2.004 as a prerequisite.

2.74 will be offered this semester (Fall 2019). It is instructed by S. Kim.

Lecture occurs 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM on Mondays and Wednesdays in 3-333.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
