Description
ROBOT MODELING AND CONTROL
This course is intended for graduate students interested in human movement control. The engineering framework from robotics controls, and filtering will be widely employed to model human movement and its control. These concepts will be merged with neurophysiology and computational neuroscience to understand adaptability in human motor control and its applications to neuro-rehabilitation. The course will introduce dynamic modeling of human limbs, internal models for movement control, sensorimotor integration using optimal filtering, neurophysiology of locomotion, and motor skill learning in able-bodied persons and persons with mobility disorders the course will be helpful for students who want to pursue a career in robotics and control for neuro-rehabilitation. The course will also be valuable to students who are curious about robotics, control, and estimation theory
