Acquisition of Bipedal Robot Facility

This is the home page for NSF MRI-0520989 Acquisition of Bipedal Robot Facility to Support Research into Improvement of Orientation and Stability of Locomotion, which is funded from August 2005 until August 2008.

The specific aims of the project are to:

  1. Outfit a robot with sensors that detect the movement and orientation of the head with regard to gravity as well as with cameras that can detect the visual environment and its motion;
  2. Adapt existing robot control software to incorporate models of vestibulo-ocular and vestibulo-collic behavior; and
  3. Tests the effectiveness of the modela in a robot that is walking on a treadmill and on uneven terrain.
