Our research interests are mainly in understanding the principles that allow us to construct life-like in telligent systems.

To this end, we are currently investigating the following research topics:

  1. Fully decentralized control of a modular robot (reconfigurable robot) that exhibits amoebic locomotion
  2. A modular robot that spontaneously self-assembles and self-repairs
  3. Control of a running bipedal robot by exploiting the intrinsic body dynamics
  4. Adaptive control of a bipedal robot using muscle-like actuators
  5. Decentralized control of a snake-like robot using real-time tunable springs
