Lecture Humanoid Robotics (MA-INF 4215)

Humanoid robots are currently an active research platform. Since they have a human-like body plan they can act in environments designed for humans. Humanoid robots are able to, e.g., climb stairs, walk through cluttered environments, manipulate objects, and open doors.

This lecture covers techniques for humanoid robots such as perception, localization, footstep planning, walking, and motion planning.





We compiled a list of literature recommendations on the individual topics for further reading.
