Enhancing biomorphic agility through variable stif.. (STIFF)
Enhancing biomorphic agility through variable stiffness
Start date: Jan 1, 2009,
End date: Dec 31, 2011
Endowing a highly biomimetic robot hand-arm system with the agility, robustness and versatility of the human motor system
The goal of STiFF is to equip a highly biomimetic robot hand-arm system with the agility, robustness and versatility that are hallmarks of the human motor system by understanding and mimicking the variable stiffness models that are so effectively employed by the human central nervous system. The project will develop novel methodologies to comprehend how the human arm can adapt. The central question that this project focuses on for both the human and robotic arm is: how is stiffness used to enhance performance?
