Biomimetics: towar
ds the next generation robotics

Dr. Patrick van der Smagt

Despite long
lasting efforts to build "intelligent robots", even the most advanced
modern robotic systems are still far away from their biological counterparts. We
study human movement from kinematic, dynamic, musculoskeletal and neurological
perspectives, in order to provide robotics with answers to noncomputable
questions. In this talk I will discuss models of the human hand and arms, and
suggest where robotics mig
ht move next.
