How can robots use their motors and sensors to move around in an unstructured environment? You will understand how to design robot bodies and behaviors that recruit limbs and more general appendages to apply physical forces that confer reliable mobility in a complex and dynamic world. We develop an approach to composing simple dynamical abstractions that partially automate the generation of complicated sensorimotor programs. Specific topics that will be covered include: mobility in animals and robots, kinematics and dynamics of legged machines, and design of dynamical behavior via energy landscapes.

TOP REVIEWS FROM ROBOTICS: MOBILITY
Nice, informative sessions. If possible avoid equation writing as a solution of quiz question.
thanks for the course. I liked how you mentioned what is active area of research.
Excellent class, though the content is a lit bit complicated that it seems not easy to clearly explain the details in a mooc.
Very vast and intuitive course.I found all the information required to design my own legged robot ! I will try and design my own . Thank you so much !
