ItemResilient Locomotion and Manipulation: Symbolic-Decision-Aware Trajectory Optimization and Perception Considerations(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2021-08-25) Zhao, Ye ; Institute for Robotics and Intelligent Machines ; Georgia Institute of Technology. George W. Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering
ItemSafe Legged Locomotion, Navigation, and Coordination: How to Make Interactive Decisions in Dynamically-Changing Environments(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2022-08-24) Zhao, Ye ; Institute for Robotics and Intelligent Machines ; Georgia Institute of Technology. School of Mechanical EngineeringIRIM hosts each semester a symposium to feature presentations from faculty and presentations of research that has been funded by our IRIM seed grant program in the last year. The symposium is a chance for faculty to meet new PhD students on campus, as well as a chance to get a better idea of what IRIM colleagues are up to these days. The goal of the symposium is to spark new ideas, new collaborations, and even new friends!
ItemCost of Transport, the Correct Metric for Mobile Systems?(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2020-09-16) Mazumdar, Anirban ; Rouse, Elliott ; Sawicki, Gregory W. ; Young, Aaron ; Zhao, Ye ; Institute for Robotics and Intelligent Machines ; Georgia Institute of Technology. School of Mechanical Engineering ; University of Michigan. Department of Mechanical Engineering ; University of Michigan. Robotics InstituteEnergetic cost of locomotion is often the gold standard measures used in autonomous robotic walking for efficiency as well as humans augmented with lower limb wearable robotics. The panel will discuss the relative benefits as well as critical disadvantages to the field’s obsession on energy cost for optimizing robotic systems and controls. Applications to clinical robotics for impaired populations, autonomous biped robotics, and wearable robotics for human augmentation will be discussed. The panel will also discuss potential alternative measures beyond energy cost to assess locomotion systems such as those associated with stability and agility.
