Research platforms

Soft Robotic HRI platform

Research platform designed to explore human-soft robot interaction.

Preliminary results of interaction experiments conducted with the platform have been published as a Late-Breaking Report and a video for the HRI’18 conference (a demo was also given of the platform at this conference).

Evolutionary Soft Robotics Platform: Knifefish

Platform developed for an experiment on evolving the most optimal swimming behavior directly in the physical system and to compare the evolved undulation pattern’s similarity with the actual swimming behaviors of knifefish. (Developed together with Frank Veenstra).

Our paper that uses the platform was published in the proceedings of GECCO’18.
