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
Never had a chance to go through mechanical systems and their dynamics in my undergrad. Thank you for this course!
Took me to the whole new level of mechanical aspects of Robotics. Some assignments were frustrating though, but overall loved the course.
I will never walk the same. This course has some of the coolest content in robotics and the instructor is great!
Nice, informative sessions. If possible avoid equation writing as a solution of quiz question.
