Recent work in humanoid robotics

Since I graduated from Mechatronic engineering oh so many years ago, I sometimes regret not going into the field of robotics. It’s certainly an area I like to keep an eye on, even if our school here isn’t very strong in the area.

Now that I’m also keeping a toe in the water for Sports Engineering, I’m trying to collect as many examples as I can that form a bridge between mechatronics and sports eng., as it’s that connection that I’m ostensibly occasionally employed to expound to the students.

Recently there have been a few papers published on the analysis of bipedal/humanoid-style robots; I’m not intending to review them here but I’ll be keeping them in mind for the future.
