Day: 21 February 2024

The dissertation defence of Marek Žák from the Institute of Intelligent Systems will take place on 28 February


We cordially invite you to the dissertation defence of Ing. Marek Žák entitled Biology-inspired control of a walking robot. Mobile robots are used for a variety of purposes, often in places that would be unthinkable for humans. These include rescue operations or space exploration. Walking robots can move in difficult terrain, but their disadvantages can be energy consumption, slowness of movement, inability to carry heavier loads or difficulty of control.

This dissertation describes the design, construction and control of a novel biology-inspired hexapod robot, WHexaR, that can deal with these obstacles. The full abstract of the thesis is available at this link. 

The work was supervised by Associate Professor František Zbořil and Specialist Supervisor Ing.  Jaroslav Rozman.

The defence will take place on February 28th at 1 pm in meeting room C209 at FIT BUT.

The opponents are prof. Ing. Petr Musilek, Ph.D. from the University of Alberta and Ing. Tomáš Ondráček, Ph.D. from Artin.
