Human-Centered Robotics


This talk presents our current research, education and outreach activities on humanoid robots at the Purdue Assistive Robotics Technology Lab (ARTLab; A brief introduction to robotics and humanoid robotics will be explored, followed by discussions of our research projects, lab and outreach activities. Specifically, kinematics and dynamics computations, and motion planning and control for DRC ladder-climbing event will be discussed with experimental work.
