The Biorobotics Laboratory work on the computational aspects of locomotion control, sensorimotor coordination, and learning in animals and in robots.
They are interested in using robots and numerical simulation to study the neural mechanisms underlying movement control and learning in animals, and in return to take inspiration from animals to design new control methods for robotics as well as novel robots capable of agile locomotion in complex environments.
Their interest extends also to rehabilitation robotics, e.g. exoskeletons, and in restoring locomotion.
