Associated research grant:18/15472-9 - Hydraulic actuation impedance control for robots with legs and arms, AP.JP


There is a broad range of robotic control systems and select the proper method can be difficult according to the application. In order to face such problem, this doctorate project going to explore the state of the art on impedance control among different actuation systems and propose a new impedance control algorithm with enhanced performance and stability properties. This new control method will be analysed on manipulation and locomotion tasks, mainly at physical impact secnarios. The algorithm validation will be also executed with the laboratory robots. (AU)
