Project title: Integrated controller-mechanism co-design for energy efficient elastic robots

Host Institution: Technical University of Munich (TUM)

Host Supervisor: Prof. Dr. Sami Haddadin

Co-host Institution: École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL)

Co-host Supervisor: Prof. Dr. Aude Billard

Summary project: Dr. Hugo T. M. Kussaba obtained his M.Sc. (2014) and Ph.D. (2018) in Engineering of Electronic Systems and Automation from the University of Brasília (UnB), Brazil. His main research interest is applications of hybrid dynamical systems to robotics and control. Currently, Dr. Hugo T. M. Kussaba is an EuroTech Postdoc2 Fellow at MIRMI, supervised by  Prof. Sami Haddadin (TUM) and Prof. Aude Billard (EPFL). His research work will explore computational frameworks for building and controlling intelligent articulated elastic robots that are both energy-efficient and accurate enough to be safely employed in future manufacturing and human-centered scenarios.

EuroTechPostdoc2 Programme

Within the EuroTechPostdoc2 programme, the universities of the EuroTech Universities Alliance offer seventy Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellowships to experienced high-potential researchers, in two calls for 35 fellows each. Besides giving the fellows the freedom to establish their own research lines, the programme provides exceptional training opportunities to prepare the fellows for a future as part of the new generation of scientific leaders, within and outside of academia.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement no. 899987.
