Highlights from the Bionic Learning Network 2013: BionicOpter Learning from nature: in the Bionic Learning Network, a cooperation between Festo and renowned universities, institutes and development companies, principles from nature provide inspiration for technical applications and industrial practice.
This reference list is a collection of resources concerning concept maps and related representations. The list is by no means complete, as research on concept maps and their applications is ongoing in many areas.
A list of short documents on concept mapping, part of Cmappers.Learn is available here . The following is a selected list of papers available on-line from projects at IHMC related to concept mapping.
The CmapForum contains documentation, answers to the questions most commonly asked, a place to provide suggestions, announcements, and a troubleshooting sections.
The CmapTools documentation is organized as a Knowledge Model composed of concept maps and associated resources, constructed with CmapTools itself.
Here you can find CAD files, assembly instructions, assembly videos, specs, etc. for fabricating linear Series Elastic Actuator SEA23-23.
Yobotics! Simulation Construction Set. The Yobotics Simulation Construction Set is a full-featured software package for easily and quickly creating simulations of robots, biomechanical systems, and mechanical devices.
The Learning Locomotion project is a DARPA progam with the goal of developing a new generation of learning algorithms to enable traversal of rough terrain by unmanned ground vehicles (UGV). Typically, UGVs are not capable of traversing rough terrain, limiting their available area of operation.
Body Localized Motion Capture : One improvement made on the motion capture data is the addition of Locap, which uses only the top six motion capture points on the dog to determine body position and orientation.
Detailed Description of Our Technical Approach The highlights of our approach include the selection of salient state and action spaces, joint-trajectory free stance control, and effective teaching. The following description of our approach is from exerpts of our Learning Locomotion proposal written in April 2005.
Note: We are not currently looking to hire, but see our hiring notice from time to time for more information. At IHMC we are developing humanoid robots for operations in urban environments. With our most recent robot, M2V2, several organizations and many individuals have had a significant influence on the work and/or are currently collaborating with us.
Robot dog prepares for world domination What is in store for the future? Flying cars? Maybe. Dinner in a pill? Perhaps.

“In the early days of air travel, detractors used to argue that, if God had meant us to fly, he would have given us wings.
While great strides have recently been made in robotics, robots still cannot get to the same places that people can.
