E6897: Walking: It's not a walk in the park in Splash Fall 2018 (Dec. 01 - 02, 2018)
In our everyday lives, we think very little about how we move. Even toddlers, when learning how to walk, seem to do so without specific instructions. However, even the most advanced robots cannot recreate realistic human locomotion, and assistive devices like exoskeletons and prostheses are limited in their abilities. In this course, we will discuss the basic mechanics and neuroscience behind walking, current state of the art robotic assistive devices, and the limitations faced in developing them further. Come learn why scientists are still baffled by something as simple as walking.
