WG3

[vc_row][vc_column][block_title style=”column_title” title=”Energy Management in Natural and Artificial Agents” description=”Sed ut perspiciatis unde omnis iste ment natus sit voluptatem ren accusantium rendse dolorem formas humanitatis per seacula quarta.” second_title=”Description”][/block_title][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner][vc_column_text]While the current mechatronics paradigm is based on the integration of components and sub-systems into systems where the richness of functions results in an increase of complexity, in living organisms the complexity of body and functions and of their interaction with the environment is managed by means of various simplification mechanisms that reduce the complexity of control and energy consumption without reducing functionality.

The main goal of this WG: “Energy Management in Natural and Artificial Agents” is to explore the development of alternative energy sources, for example based on metabolic-like chemical processes, and of different approaches to bio-inspired energy optimization strategies for Robot Companions.

This WG aims to identify different solutions for building a new generation of robots, with enhanced motor capabilities in walking, running, grasping, and other functions, and for achieving significantly higher energy efficiency.

Close cooperation of this WG3 – Energy Management in Natural and Artificial Agents with  WG1 – Embodied Intelligence in Natural and Artificial Physical Agents and with WG2 – Soft Robotics and Bodyware will be established in order to better identify the needs of future robot in terms of energy and materials.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row bg_color=”#f5f5f5″ top_padding=”50″ bottom_padding=”50″][vc_column][block_title title=”List of topics” description=”Sed ut perspiciatis unde omnis iste ment natus sit voluptatem ren accusantium rendse dolorem formas humanitatis per seacula quarta.”][/block_title][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″ enable_animation=”true” animation=”bounceIn” delay=”200″][list_item title=”Harvesting”][list_item title=”Storage”][list_item title=”Metabolism”][list_item title=”Energy in partially actuated dynamic systems”][list_item title=”Energy in systems integrating rigid and compliant sub-systems and components”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][list_item title=”Energy in plants”][list_item title=”Energy in animals”][list_item title=”Soft devices for energy harvesting and storage”][list_item title=”Design principles for high efficiency “][list_item title=”Design for disassembling and reusability”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][block_title title=”Working Group 3 Board (WG3B)” description=”Sed ut perspiciatis unde omnis iste ment natus sit voluptatem ren accusantium rendse dolorem formas humanitatis per seacula quarta.”][/block_title][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″ enable_animation=”true” animation=”bounceIn” delay=”200″][staff staff=”2428″ style=”style_2″][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][staff staff=”2429″ style=”style_2″][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][staff staff=”2430″ style=”style_2″][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row bg_color=”#f5f5f5″ top_padding=”50″ bottom_padding=”40″][vc_column column_padding=”4%”][block_title title=”Working Group 3 Experts” description=”Sed ut perspiciatis unde omnis iste ment natus sit voluptatem ren accusantium rendse dolorem formas humanitatis per seacula quarta.”][/block_title][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner enable_animation=”true” animation=”bounceIn” delay=”200″][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1510930194468{margin-bottom: 0px !important;}”]
