Saturday Morning Physics: Dynamic Locomotion in Humans, Animals, and Robots

September 6, 2016

What has the IKEA furniture showroom to do with legged robots? More than you would think. 

Watch as Professor C. David Remy takes a lighthearted look at the fundamentals of legged locomotion and what roboticists can learn from animals and humans. The Saturday Morning Physics lecture series of the University of Michigan Department of Physics provides an opportunity to hear scientists discuss their work in fun, easy-to-understand and non-technical terms.  Prof. Remy’s lecture is one of the most well-received lectures and has already been watched by over 1500 people.
