Call for Contributions

We target organizing a full day workshop that will include a set of presentations that may split into two main categories: design and control. However, the proposed workshop envisions to elaborate on the interconnection of the two categories when relevant topics are discussed. The main topics include

  1. Design:

    • Robot linkage structure/material,

    • Multi-articulation and novel drive topologies,

    • High peak power actuation,

    • High efficiency transmission,

    • Actuation unit placement,

    • Passive parallel/series compliance,

    • Cooling systems,

  2. Control:

    • Bio-inspired/Optimal motion rendering,

    • Explosive impact/disturbance absorption/damping,

    • Explosive motion generation,

    • Thermal management,

    • Motor flux tuning,
