6.832 Underactuated Robotics
Covers nonlinear dynamics and control of underactuated mechanical systems, with an emphasis on computational methods. Topics include nonlinear dynamics of passive robots (walkers, swimmers, flyers), motion planning, robust and optimal control, reinforcement learning/approximate optimal control, and the influence of mechanical design on control. Includes examples from biology and applications to legged locomotion, compliant manipulation, underwater robots, and flying machines.
