Check out the CSAIL Spotlight article describing our VRC effort.
Check out our RSS 2018 paper entitled "Contact-Implicit Optimization of Locomotion Trajectories for a Quadrupedal Microrobot."
There's also a video summary here.
Our RSS paper on robust direct trajectory optimization can be found here.
A pre-print (comments welcome!) of our IROS paper on constrained UDP can be found...
I will be giving a lecture on trajectory optimization for underactuated systems at the 1st Summer School on Cognitive Robotics @ MIT June 12-16. Please consider participating! Details here.
Our paper entitled "Optimization-based locomotion planning, estimation, and control design for the atlas humanoid robot" was selected as the Best Paper of 2016 by the IEEE-RAS Technical Committee on Whole-Body Control.
Check out our upcoming Workshop on Legged Locomotion @ RSS on July 15, 2017: https://leggedrobotlocomotion.wordpress.com/
We have an incredible list of speakers lined up and we are soliciting poster abstracts (deadline: May 30, 2017). Please consider participating!
I am honored to have recieved a Sony Faculty Innovation Award for our work on robust control!
