1. Locomotion overview As roboticists, animals give great inspiration. But, locomotion involves challenges: Underactuation (by nature) Controllability (to perform well) Today: We’ll look at some robot examples and discuss underactuation and controllability .

Goals for today: Define underactuation Define controllability Look at different legged robots Do they exploit their (passive) dynamics? Are they agile? (Do they recover well?) Get you to agree (perhaps): Control of underactuated robotics is essential for your own goals in robotics!

I use q for degrees of freedom (DOF) (e.g., joint angles (not vel.) in a robot): (q matches the robot manipulator eqns …) …and x for states (e.g., position and vel.) (x matches state-space notation …) Bu Ax x !
