What if robots weren’t so, well, robotic? What if they could jimmy and jive just like humans? That is the fundamental idea behind a project involving Yuliy Baryshnikov, a professor in Mathematics and Electrical and Computing Engineering, who seeks to help create a robot whose movements more closely mimic that of living creatures.
The project, "Science of Embodied Innovation, Learning and Control," is a joint effort between Baryshnikov and researchers at the University of Pennsylvania, University of California Berkeley, and John Hopkins University to use the natural world, combined with engineering, to design a smoother moving robot.
