Robot zoo submission

Investigating how animals and humans excel at adaptive movements can help engineers to improve the adaptive capabilities of robots. In return, robots can serve as scientific tools to explore the basic principles of biological systems, in particular the neuromechanical mechanisms underlying their fascinating motor abilities.

The Robot Zoo is the special demo session at AMAM 2019 where researchers can showcase their hardware (e.g., robots, prostheses or orthoses). Hardware demo proposals are invited from all areas pertaining to adaptive motion in animals and machines. Proposals can be stand-alone or linked to your existing poster presentation at AMAM 2019. Accepted demos will be presented during dedicated sessions at the symposium. Plenty of time will be dedicated for fruitful discussions among participants.

Application form

Submissions for the AMAM 2019 robot zoo will be accepted until June 15th.
