Two weeks ago, I left for Genoa, Italy to meet the humanoid robotics team at the Italian Institute of Technology. I spent about a week observing their work, particularly on the ccub robot (a variant of the icub robot). It was a lot of fun, and I definitely learned a lot, as well as gaining some very good contacts there.

Now, I am back in London working on a new theory with my professor. While we still plan to use research impedance control, we have some other ideas bouncing around that we would like to experiment with.
