SimTech presents bio-robot of human leg at Hannover Fair 2018

From 23rd to the 27th of April the Cluster of Excellence "Simulation Technology" (SimTech) will be present at the world's largest and most significant trade fair in Hannover at the leading fair "Research & Technology" in Hall 2 at the "Baden-Württemberg joint stand".

At the fair the SimTech researchers will be showing a bio-inspired robot of a human leg that is moved by artificial muscles. The so-called bio-robot makes the interaction between motion control and motion performance in the real physical world comprehensible for scientists.

The Stuttgart Centre for Simulation Science (SC SimTech) at the University of Stuttgart develops simulation technology that is necessary to solve complex problems in the most diverse areas of daily life. This also includes computer simulations from the field of medicine and the life sciences. The central vision of SimTech researchers in this field is to develop a model with which the physical behaviour of the human body can be better understood: a digital twin of the human. Syn Schmitt and his team “Biomechanics and Biorobotics“ are investigating in this context the interaction between the neural control of movement and the muscle-skeletal system. Among other things their research is to contribute towards developing innovative prostheses or exoskeletons.
