Walking, a fundamental means of human and animal locomotion, seems easy to those of us who have spent most of our lives doing it. When researchers in various fields attempt to replicate it however, it becomes clear just how complex a process this seemingly simple thing is. This talk provides an overview of my research into locomotion detailing both some of the experimental steps that have been taken and the stumbles that have occurred along the way.

Dr. Stelian Coros is a postdoctoral researcher at Disney Research, Zurich. Before joining Disney, he obtained his PhD in Computer Science from the University of British Columbia. Stelian's research focuses on the development of methods for generating human and animal motion, with an emphasis on models of motor control, physics-based simulation and motion planning. Direct applications of his research extend to character animation, robotics and biomechanics.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
