CNR 2016: Lectures: Manfred Hild (GER): Design Principles of the Humanoid Robot Myon: Why was it built that way?
One unique example is Myon's modularity: The robots' body parts can be detached an re-attached during runtime. This enforces a high degree of autonomy and does not allow for a central processing unit.
Also, Myon is driven by neural networks and uses reactive
control paradigms which do not calculate the body's movement
trajectories but instead just react to environmental
forces. How can a higher degree of behaviour emerge from
The talk will shed some light on these (and other) questions and give reasons why Myon is a valuable robot for research on intelligent behaviour.
Manfred Hild is Professor of Digital Systems at the Beuth University of Applied Sciences in Berlin, Germany. Prior to that he held positions as Visiting Researcher at the SONY Computer Science Laboratory in Paris and as leader of the Neurorobotics Research Laboratory (NRL) in Berlin. He studied psychology and mathematics at the University of Konstanz where he received his diploma and switched then to computer science where he received his PhD in 2008 at Humboldt University in Berlin. His main research fields are sensorimotor control, humanoid robotics, and the design of distributed systems, with a focus on dynamical systems theory and recurrent neural networks.
