Experiments on alternative locomotion techniques for micro-robots

In this informal talk I will describe some experiments on alternative methods of locomotion for micro or macro objects not using wheels or other electro-mechanical methods - in particular, the idea is to harness vibrations from the environment and coupling it with internal degrees of freedom of the system using machine learning. These techniques, along others now being studied can be extended to study swarming robots as well as control the vibration phase of the quantum hydrodynamic walkers.

The talk will not be theoretical in nature, but rather experimental and based on computer simulations - my background is quite particular I hold a PhD from Paris XI on Optoelectronic Stochastic Parallel Processors and I worked for 15 years as director of a human computer and robotics laboratory at the University of Tokyo (and as an independent Media Artist...). That is to say, I very much look forward your feedback as well as learn from you !
