The Movement Generation and Control Group is an important partner of the new European Project Memmo
The EU funded Memmo project aims to revolutionize the way robots with arms and legs move by developing novel real-time methods for motion generation of complex robot, able to cope with the complexity of humanoid and other legged robots in realistic industrial and medical environments. The 4-year-project, led by the LAAS-CNRS in France, involves 10 different partners across Europe including the Movement Generation and Control Group at MPI-IS.
Medal-Marathon for Robotics Researcher
Tübingen – Stockholm – Berlin – Stockholm – Tübingen; Ludovic Righetti receives within 24 hours two renowned prizes for young researchers for his outstanding science on movements of robots
Intelligent Systems Research: Spanning the Length Scale
Stuttgart / Tübingen. Five years of basic research is secured: The physicist Dr. Laura Na Liu and the computer scientist Dr. Ludovic Righetti, both from the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems, receive an ERC Starting Grant of 1,5 Million Euro, respectively. Prof. Jan Peters, head of the robot learning group at the institute (while mainly active as full professor at the TU Darmstadt) will invest part of his ERC starting grant into his research group at the institute. The researchers have won against 3.273 applicants - only 10 per cent of the submitted project appraisals receive the requested award, granted by the European Research Council (ERC).
