Kick-off meeting for DFG project HoRoPo

Today is the last day of the kick-off meeting for the new DFG-funded project "Skin and whole-body motion of large objects with torque and position controlled humanoid robots (HoRoPo)" taking place at ICS. Together with the project partner, Dr. Olivier Stasse/ LAAS-CNRS, the aim of HoRoPo is to develop a new scientific paradigm for motion generation considering humanoid robots equipped with skin. The aim is to manipulate large objects using torque-controlled and non-torque-controlled humanoid robots and compare the limitations of the two approaches and fuse them to a uniformed controller.
