  • Sweep Coverage Along a Line

    This chapter develops a set of decentralized algorithms for the coordination of a mobile robotic sensor network to address a problem of sweep coverage along a given line. The control laws are based on some consensus algorithms that are computationally efficient and easily implementable. To achieve sweep coverage, the control law drives the network of robotic mobile sensors to form a sensor barrier that moves perpendicularly to the path at a given speed. Also, the separation between each pair of the robots in the sensor barrier can be adjusted. Numerical simulations are presented for a number of scenarios to illustrate the proposed distributed algorithm. To show its practical applicability, the chapter provides computer simulation results for an illustrative example of a sea exploration operation with multiple vessels.

  • Mapbuilding using Self-Organising Networks in “Really Useful Robots”

    The Really Useful Robots (RUR) project is seeking to understand how robots can be built that develop and maintain the task achieving competences they require for flexible and robust behaviour in variable and unforeseen situations, as opposed to these being installed by their designers. In this paper we present an experimental autonomous robot with a map building competence which uses a self-organising network. Map building forms a necessary step on the way to development of a navigational competence. Some encouraging initial test results are also presented.

  • Comparing Heads-Up, Hands-Free Operation of Ground Robots to Teleoperation

    Today, most commercially available UGVs (unmanned ground vehicles) use teleoperation for control. Under teleoperation, users' hands are occupied holding a handheld controller to operate the UGV, and their attention is focused on what the robot is doing. In this paper, we propose an alternative called Heads-up, Hands-free Operation, which allows an operator to control a UGV using operator following behaviors and a gesture interface. We explore whether Heads-up, Hands-free Operation is an improvement over teleoperation. In a study of 30 participants, we found that when operators used these modes of interaction, they performed missions faster, they could recall their surroundings better, and they had a lower cognitive load than they did when they teleoperated the robot.

  • Coupled Dynamical System Based Hand-Arm Grasp Planning under Real-Time Perturbations

    Robustness to perturbation has been advocated as a key element to robot control and efforts in that direction are numerous. While in essence these approaches aim at "endowing robots with a flexibility similar to that displayed by humans", few have actually looked at how humans react in the face of fast perturbations. We recorded the kinematic data from human subjects during grasping motions under very fast perturbations. Results show a strong coupling between the reach and grasp components of the task that enables rapid adaptation of the fingers in coordination with the hand posture when the target object is perturbed. We develop a robot controller based on Coupled Dynamical Systems that exploits coupling between two dynamical systems driving the hand and finger motions. This offers a compact encoding for a variety of reach and grasp motions that adapts on-the-fly to perturbations without the need for any re-planning. To validate the model we control the motion of the iCub robot when reaching for different objects.

  • Design Application - M.I.T. Direct-Drive Manipulators

    This book describes the design concept and discusses the control issues related to the performance of a direct-drive robot, specifically, a direct- drive mechanical arm capable of carrying up to 10 kilograms, at 10 meters per second, accelerating at 5 G (a unit of acceleration equal to the acceleration of gravity).

It describes fundamental technologies of key components such as motors, amplifiers and sensors, arm linkage design, and control system design, and makes significant contributions in the areas of power efficiency analysis, dynamic mass balancing, and decoupling theory.The book provides a good balance between theory and practice, covering the practical design and implementation of this special robot as well as the theoretical design tools.Contents: Part I: Direct-Drive Technologies. Introduction. Components. Part II: Arm Design Theory. Power Efficiency. Arm Design for Simplified Dynamics. Actuator Relocation. Design of Decoupled Arm Structures.
