In this talk, I will give an overview of our research on model-based optimal control for motion research in robotics, biomechanics and rehabilitation. Humans and humanoid robots are remarkably complex systems. Dynamic models and optimal control methods can serve to gain a better understanding of human movement in addition to knowledge obtained from experimental recordings. Model-based optimal control can also lead to significantly improved design and control of technical devices for human movement and humanoid robots. The talk will cover the following topics:
