Lecture 21/05/2014, 11:30am Room 214

I would like to invite you to the Lecture with title “Muskuloskeletal Robotics” by Dr. Konstantinos Dalamagkides from the Technical University of Munich


A presentation of the activities of our group in building, modeling and
simulating anthropomimetic, compliant robots. We will start from
ECCEROBOT and through modular robots for everyone using the Myorobotics
toolkit we will investigate the potential of compliant robots in
academia and industry.

Recent results of the Machine Vision and Perception Group in
vision-based navigation, object detection, tracking and manipulation
applications in robotics will also be presented. Since 2005, the MVP
group has carried a number of research activities in collaboration with
the Institute for Robotics and Mechatronics at the German Aerospace

Short CV:

Dr. Dalamagkidis received his PhD in Computer Science and Engineering
from the University of South Florida in December of 2009 on control of
small autonomous helicopters. His research is on modeling, simulation
and visualization of engineered systems and in particular robots. He is
also the author of the first book in the area of unmanned aircraft
operations safety and policy.

He is currently a research associate at the Technical University of
Munich, where he leads the musculoskeletal robotics group in the Chair
of Robotics and Embedded systems. In parallel, he is the coordinator of
Myorobotics, a 3.3M€ research project on the development of a modular,
cost-effective toolkit for building musculoskeletal robots. His
business case for the Myorobotics toolkit recently won the ”German
High-Tech Champion” award on light-weight design.
