Andy Ruina Bio

Andy Ruina’s goal is to understand the mechanics of walking. The main route to this is through designing, simulating, building and testing walking robots. A special focus is on the energetics of walking. People, no matter how you measure, use much less energy than almost all walking robots. We want to make robots as energy-stingy as people, or even better, and we’d like the robots to be stable too.
