Force

View this topic in
In physics, a force is any influence that causes a free body to undergo a change in speed, a change in direction, or a change in shape. Force can also be described by intuitive concepts such as a push or pull that can cause an object with mass to change its velocity (which includes to begin moving from a state of rest), i.e. , to accelerate, or which can cause a flexible object to deform.

Jia-Yu Lin; Chia-Yang Tsai; Pin-Tso Lin; Tse-En Hsu; Po-Tsung Lee 2015 11th Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics Pacific Rim (CLEO-PR), 2015

A rod-dimer/ring (RDR) plasmonic nanostructure with different gap distances is investigated in both experiment and simulation. Compared to rod-dimer and ring, the localized near-field intensity of RDR can be significantly enhanced and further increased in smaller gap distance owing to stronger coupling effect.

  • Tendon-Driven Variable Impedance Control Using Reinforcement Learning

    Biological motor control is capable of learning complex movements containing contact transitions and unknown force requirements while adapting the impedance of the system. In this work, we seek to achieve robotic mimicry of this compliance, employing stiffness only when it is necessary for task completion. We use path integral reinforcement learning which has been successfully applied on torque-driven systems to learn episodic tasks without using explicit models. Applying this method to tendon-driven systems is challenging because of the increase in dimensionality, the intrinsic nonlinearities of such systems, and the increased effect of external dynamics on the lighter tendon-driven end effectors. We demonstrate the simultaneous learning of feedback gains and desired tendon trajectories in a dynamically complex sliding-switch task with a tendon-driven robotic hand. The learned controls look noisy but nonetheless result in smooth and expert task performance. We show discovery of dynamic strategies not explored in a demonstration, and that the learned strategy is useful for understanding difficult-to-model plant characteristics.

The overall objectives of the book are for the readers to understand and manage their project by employing the good engineering practice used by medical and other industries in design and development of medical devices, engineered products and systems The goal is for the engineer and student to work well on large projects requiring a team environment, and to effectively communicate technical matters in both written documents and oral presentations.

  • NanoNewton Force Sensing and Control in Microrobotic Cell Manipulation

    Cellular force sensing and control techniques are capable of enhancing the dexterity and reliability of microrobotic cell manipulation systems. This paper presents a vision-based cellular force sensing technique using a microfabricated elastic cell holding device and a sub-pixel visual tracking algorithm for resolving forces down to 3.7nN during microrobotic mouse embryo injection. The technique also experimentally proves useful for in situ differentiation of healthy mouse embryos from those with compromised developmental competence without the requirement of a separate mechanical characterization process. Concerning force-controlled microrobotic cell manipulation (pick-transport-place), this paper presents the first demonstration of nanoNewton force-controlled cell micrograsping using a MEMS- based microgripper with integrated two-axis force feedback. On-chip force sensors are used for detecting contact between the microgripper and cells to be manipulated (resolution: 38.5nN) and sensing gripping forces (resolution: 19.9nN) during force-controlled grasping. The experimental results demonstrate that the microgripper and the control system are capable of rapid contact detection and reliable force-controlled micrograsping to accommodate variations in size and stiffness of cells with a high reproducibility.

  • Building Resilience: Naval Expeditionary Command and Control

    This chapter describes an 18-month project to demonstrate how to incorporate human centered design into the Navy's systems acquisition process. The project provides a common language for the chief of Naval operations and the Naval sea systems command staff to use in the acquisition of systems that are intended to support decision-making. Navy expeditionary combat command (NECC) forces are routinely configured differently to serve a range of different and novel missions across multiple theatres of operation. The chapter discusses the inclusion of human performance research in system development, the transition from qualitative research to design, and resilience engineering. Qualitative methods such as the interviews and observations that are described in the chapter are powerful means to study how individuals and teams perform cognitive work. As a result, future systems that are acquired are more likely to reflect and support cognitive and macrocognitive functions and thereby improve expeditionary force resilience.

  • Biophysics of the Generation of EMG Signals

    This chapter describes the basic concepts of generation and detection of EMG signals. Specific emphasis is devoted to the generation of muscle fiber action potentials at the fiber end plates, their propagation along the sarcolemma, and their extinction at the tendons. The chapter addresses the topics of crosstalk between nearby muscles and selectivity of the recording systems. It discusses the relationships between muscle force and the surface EMG. The EMG signal is generated by the electrical activity of the muscle fibers active during a contraction. The signal sources are the depolarizing and repolarizing zones of the muscle fibers. EMG signal features depend on a number of anatomical, physical, and detection system parameters. Considering all the factors related to the volume conductor and the signal sources that influence the characteristics of the EMG signal, a reliable relation between EMG amplitude and force needs a subject specific and condition specific calibration.
