  • Road Condition Monitoring

    Common measurement principles involve in situ measurements, where sensors are embedded in the road surface, and remote sensing technologies using visual cameras and infrared (IR) sensors or cameras. Recent days, development of cooperative traffic systems has increased the expectations concerning automatic road friction measurement units. Automotive industry has been investigating chances to utilize the roadside friction data for adjusting car control functions (i.e., ADAS). This chapter will review the promising camera vision and the short¿¿¿wave IR (SWIR) laser unit technology to provide friction estimation for road users. The laser system consists of two laser diodes emitting at wavelengths ¿¿1¿¿¿=¿¿¿1323¿¿¿nm and ¿¿2¿¿¿=¿¿¿1566¿¿¿nm, whereas the camera system operates in the near¿¿¿IR (NIR) band 850¿¿¿950¿¿¿nm. The algorithms have been developed to identify condition of the road surface (dry, wet, snow, icy, etc.)

  • Understanding Slip Perception of Soft Fingertips by Modeling and Simulating Stick-Slip Phenomenon

    Slip, especially incipient slip, is a complicated process for soft fingertips; and detection of this slip is of important factor assuring the stable manipulation for both human and robotic fingertips. By experimental tools, previous research attempted to perceive this phenomenon, but none of them could explain fully dynamic change during this process. In this paper, we propose a dynamic model to investigate the sliding motion of soft fingertips on a plane with friction. The fingertip is virtually comprised of a finite number of elastic compressible and bendable cantilevers whose free ends act as infinitesimal contact points. The contact surface is afterward meshed using finite element method based on coordinates of contact points. By introducing Coulomb's law and contact compliance into each contact point, we are able to assess the frictional characteristic during sliding motions of the fingertip. We also successfully described dynamically localized displacements on the contact surface during stick-slip transition, which are typical of the sliding motion of a soft fingertip. This model can be applied to different typical shapes of robotic fingertip. In this paper, we use two models of fingertips: cylindrical, and hemispherical ones. In addition, we conducted experiments to valid proposed simulation, including force/moment and vision setups.

  • Control of a Direct-Drive Arm

    A direct-drive arm is a mechanical arm in which the shafts of articulated joints are directly coupled to the rotors of motors with high torque. Since the arm does not contain transmission mechanisms between the motors and their loads, the drive system has no backlash, small friction, and high mechanical stiffness, all of which are desirable for fast, accurate, and versatile robots. First, the prototype robot is described, and basic feedback compensation is discussed . This compensation significantly reduces the effect of interactions among multiple joints and nonlinear forces. The experiments showed the excellent performance of the direct-drive arm in terms of speed and accuracy.

    This revised edition of Taylor's classic work on the internal-combustion engine incorporates changes and additions in engine design and control that have been brought on by the world petroleum crisis, the subsequent emphasis on fuel economy, and the legal restraints on air pollution.The fundamentals and the topical organization, however, remain the same. The analytic rather than merely descriptive treatment of actual engine cycles, the exhaustive studies of air capacity, heat flow, friction, and the effects of cylinder size, and the emphasis on application have been preserved. These are the basic qualities that have made Taylor's work indispensable to more than one generation of engineers and designers of internal-combustion engines, as well as to teachers and graduate students in the fields of power, internal-combustion engineering, and general machine design.Charles Fayette Taylor is Professor of Automotive Engineering Emeritus at MIT.

    The network economy presents itself in the transactions of electronic commerce, finance, business, and communications. The network economy is also a social condition of discontinuity, indefinite limits, and in-between spaces. In Cornucopia Limited, Richard Coyne uses the liminality of design -- its uneasy position between creativity and commerce -- to explore the network economy. He argues that design, with its open-ended and transgressive explorations, provides a new way to think about the world of commerce; design's inter-territorial precinct, its in-between condition, offers a way to frame the problems of the Internet economy -- for profit vs. for free, private vs. public, security vs. open access, defense vs. permeability.Design, says Coyne, has a natural affinity with the edge condition and the position between polar opposites. Edgy design starts with an idea, brings to mind its opposite, and then works with what emerges from the friction between the two. The designer of a Web portal, for example, might take on the problem of security by focusing on the limits of permeability. Design is edgy, and risky, argues Coyne, in the same way that breaches in network security are risky. In Cornucopia Limited he examines the threshold between conditions exemplified by the boundary between design and commerce. Coyne uses five metaphors of design to develop his argument: the household (in economics, historically opposed to the market), with its relationship to the street mediated by various portals; the machine, rampant and glitchy; the game, competitive but simulated; the gift, precursor to commerce; and the threshold. The threshold condition, Coyne says, is the site of edgy design and a portal into the new. The threshold, he argues, provides the most potent metaphor for u nderstanding the liminal dwellers of the network economy.
