Creating a Robotic Surrogate for Co-evolving Behaviour and Design in the Real World
The project also involved CAD-design and 3D printing. The goal was to create a parameterized 3D CAD-design of the robot's leg component. The parameters will be given by the RL algorithm, thus realizing the co-adaptation of behavior and morphology of the robot.
Overall, the project was a success: by the end of the course, the platform was fully functional and ready for more testing.
