Variable Impedance Control with Movement Primitives

  • If you are interested in the proposal, please contact with the supervisors.


Movement Primitives [1] provide us with a time-varying precision requirements for robot motion. In this master thesis, we aim at finding alternatives for implementing those precision requirements into a robot controller that allows for a softer behavior in those parts of motion where precision is not needed.

The controllers will be implemented in the WAM or Tiago robots.
