Quadrupedal Running

Investigating the biomechanics of quadrupedal running provides a framework for understanding aspects from control to energetics of running.   A model of scale effects in mammalian quadrupedal running Although the effects of body size on mammalian locomotion are well documented, the underlying mechanisms are not fully understood. The...

Human Running

The Biomechatronics Group uses a data-driven approach to study the mechanics and control of human running, with the goal of applying the findings to hardware control.   Swing-leg retraction: a simple control model for stable human running In running, the spring-like axial behavior of stance limbs is a...
