Physics-based Motor Control

Physics-based modeling offers many advantages and has, in our case, proven to be successful in generating realistic motions of fishes. However, the associated control problem for more complicated creatures remains a difficult endeavor. We would like to explore ways of simplifying the control problem, perhaps by exploiting analytical solutions to the given physical system.
