David Robot: An Anthropomorphic Robot
David is a scientific platform to experimentally investigate control methods for variable stiffness robots. The focus of the controller design includes active vibration damping, stiffness control, optimal, and cyclic motion control. Analysis and control of robotic arms and hands are treated. The high dynamics and the robustness of the platform allow to explore new strategies for the planning and the execution. The possibility to safely collide with the environment offers the possibility to develop tactile mapping algorithm.
