Welcome to 張昂’s Personal Page

Hi, I am Zhang Ang and currently a Ph.D candidate at Robotic Manipulation Lab at Osaka University under the supervision of Prof. Kensuke Harada. I also work with Olivier Stasse who is in charge of Humanoid robot team at LAAS-CNRS in Toulouse, France.

Research Interest

My research interests are bipedal walking, manipulation and control theory.

I am interested in using model predictive control(MPC) to generate walking patterns. A walking pattern generator embedded with MPC with basis functions is designed which saves calculation time. I am also doing research about letting humanoid robots doing manipulation while walking, for example, carrying box and pulling hose. I hope that humanoid robots will replace human to do rescue work in dangerous places, like nuclear plant and fire disaster.
