Stable Teleoperation of Mobile Robots

Emanuel Slawinski; Jose Postigo; Vicente Mut 2006 International Conference on Mechatronics and Automation, 2006

This paper proposes a stable control scheme for bilateral teleoperation of mobile robots in presence of obstacles and time-varying delay. The proposed control scheme is composed by a velocity controller on board the mobile robot and a time-delay compensation placed on both the local and remote sites of the teleoperation system. Finally, experiments on a mobile robot teleoperated by a ...


Position-Error Based Schemes for Bilateral Teleoperation with Time Delay: Theory and Experiments

Ilia Polushin; Peter X. Liu; Chung-horng Lung; Gia Dien On 2006 International Conference on Mechatronics and Automation, 2006

The problem of stable bilateral teleoperation with position error based force feedback in presence of time-varying possibly unbounded communication delay is addressed. Two stabilization schemes are proposed that guarantee "independent of delay" stability of the teleoperator system. In particular, one of the schemes theoretically allows to achieve an arbitrary high force-reflection gain which leads to better transparency without sacrificing the ...

  • EDA Sets the Standard for Complexity

    The fast-paced introduction of new products and increasingly complex design of systems-on-a-chip (SoC) is making it extremely difficult for industry vendors to keep up with the demands of the market. Most electronic design automation (EDA) standards activity starts with the Accellera Systems Initiative, which initially develops EDA standards and then turns them over to the IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) for further study and consideration. Design resources have not kept pace with developments in system-on-a-chip (SoC) technologies, ensuring a widening design gap between their advancing manufacturing potential and restrained design capabilities. Today, design verification and low power are two of the biggest challenges for the EDA and semiconductor communities. The Universal Verification Methodology (UVM) standard, which came out of Accellera is well established and has been adopted for most SoC projects. Trivedi believes the impact of the acquisitions has a mixed impact on standards development.

  • Analog Test

    The tools and techniques you need to break the analog design bottleneck! Ten years ago, analog seemed to be a dead-end technology. Today, System-on-Chip (SoC) designs are increasingly mixed-signal designs. With the advent of application-specific integrated circuits (ASIC) technologies that can integrate both analog and digital functions on a single chip, analog has become more crucial than ever to the design process. Today, designers are moving beyond hand-crafted, one-transistor-at-a-time methods. They are using new circuit and physical synthesis tools to design practical analog circuits; new modeling and analysis tools to allow rapid exploration of system level alternatives; and new simulation tools to provide accurate answers for analog circuit behaviors and interactions that were considered impossible to handle only a few years ago. To give circuit designers and CAD professionals a better understanding of the history and the current state of the art in the field, this volume collects in one place the essential set of analog CAD papers that form the foundation of today's new analog design automation tools. Areas covered are: Analog synthesis Symbolic analysis Analog layout Analog modeling and analysis Specialized analog simulation Circuit centering and yield optimization Circuit testing Computer-Aided Design of Analog Integrated Circuits and Systems is the cutting-edge reference that will be an invaluable resource for every semiconductor circuit designer and CAD professional who hopes to break the analog design bottleneck.

  • Source Notes

    The field of machine translation (MT) -- the automation of translation between human languages -- has existed for more than fifty years. MT helped to usher in the field of computational linguistics and has influenced methods and applications in knowledge representation, information theory, and mathematical statistics.This valuable resource offers the most historically significant English-language articles on MT. The book is organized in three sections. The historical section contains articles from MT's beginnings through the late 1960s. The second section, on theoretical and methodological issues, covers sublanguage and controlled input, the role of humans in machine-aided translation, the impact of certain linguistic approaches, the transfer versus interlingua question, and the representation of meaning and knowledge. The third section, on system design, covers knowledge-based, statistical, and example-based approaches to multilevel analysis and representation, as well as computational issues.
