Marco Hutter




Marco Hutter is a postdoctoral researcher at the Autonomous Systems Lab at ETH Zurich. After studying mechanical engineering, he conducted doctoral degree work with a focus on design, actuation, and control of legged systems ETH. In his work, Marco realized an electrically actuated, torque controllable quadrupedal robot that is capable of different gaits ranging from robust climbing to fast and energy efficient running. He is the organizer of the legged robotics summer school 2011 and the dynamic walking conference 2014 at ETH Zurich. Marco’s research interest is the creation and control of adaptive machines for complex environments. He is part of NCCR robotics Switzerland, initiator of an SNF project about rough terrain locomotion, and coordinator of a knowledge transfer (KTI) project for large-scale walking excavators.

Basic concepts and algorithms for locomotion, perception, and intelligent navigation. Robots are rapidly evolving from factory workhorses, which are physically bound to their work-cells, to increasingly complex machines capable of performing challenging tasks in our daily environment. The objective of this course is to provide the basic concepts and algorithms required to develop mobile robots that act autonomously in complex environments.
