Lots of PR from these guys.
- Their chief Dennis Hong was featured on TED
- They are working with Robotis to launch a new research platform DaRWin


phpBB [media]


One of their research topic sounds very familiar and similar to what we are trying to do with ActuatedCharacter:
The Analytical Motion Filter (AMF) takes reference motion of humanoid, and stabilizes an otherwise unstable motion while preserving as much of the reference motion as possible. The analytical solutions will provide insight to the stability of the robotic system that would otherwise be difficult to identify in a numeric optimization scheme. The specific objectives are to: stabilize reference motions while retaining as many of the characteristics as possible; verify the filter using human motion capture data, kinematically synthesized data, and motion data from animation software in both simulation and on a humanoid robot platform; and provide insight into the stability of the humanoid robotic system.

AMAZING!
I wasn't aware of the lauflabor.uni-jena.de research effort.
