  • Advanced Robotics Mechatronics System: emerging technologies for interplanetary robotics

    The paper describes some of the results from the Advanced Robotics Mechatronics System Project. The objective of the overall project was to examine new technologies for the next generation of space robotics which would deliver reduced system mass and high torque density joints. The development and test of this novel manipulator joint and control architecture was based on the use of ultrasonic motors (USM). These motors were chosen due to their vacuum compatibility and inherent self braking. The joint consists of a single USM driving a harmonic drive and an electronics board used for motor control, joint telemetry gathering and serial communications to the control computer. Multiple joints are connected in parallel to the motor drive bus and sequentially switched to create near coordinated motion. In order to realize this control architecture, a digital USM controller was developed to replace the analog drive electronics. A prototype joint with drive electronics was built and tested at MD Robotics. Test results have shown that USMs with harmonic drives can provide higher torque densities over larger speed ranges when compared to DC motor and conventional planetary gear combinations used in small space robotic arm applications.

  • Optimal Remote Center-of-Motion Location for Robotics-Assisted Minimally-Invasive Surgery

    A novel technique is described for isotropy-based kinematic optimization of specific robot characteristics. The new technique has advantages over existing techniques when designing robotic systems for specific, unconventional tasks, and for constrained motion. In this paper, the technique is used to assist in the selection of a remote center-of-motion (RCM) location for a research testbed that is being developed at CSTAR to study robotics-assisted minimally- invasive surgery. The optimization technique allows isotropy to be considered with respect to the surgical tool tip while operating under the RCM constraint. Global isotropy over a minimally-invasive surgical workspace is evaluated for a set of candidate RCM locations, and an optimal RCM location with respect to isotropy is selected. The isotropy results are compared with experimental data for a number of candidate RCM locations. The experimental results confirm the usefulness of the optimization technique.

  • Behavior-based robotics programming for a mobile robotics ECE course using the CEENBoT mobile robotics platform

    Behavior-based robotics is a novel approach to robotic programming whereby multiple behaviors execute in parallel using a multilayer architecture, organized by priority. However, in certain architectures, such as the subsumption architecture pioneered by Rodney Brooks, only one such behavior can be active at a time, requiring their coordination. Supporting such architectures requires hardware/software resources for multithreaded support for behaviors to execute concurrently. This makes behavior-based programming inaccessible to small educational robotics platforms usually powered by a uniprocessor (single-threaded) execution model. In this paper, we present an approach employed for an introductory Mobile Robotics course at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln that allows our students to both learn and implement behavior-based robotic programming using the C language on a uniprocessor- based mobile robotics platform known as the CEENBoT. This allows students to learn about robot programming using physical, situated robots, using a valuable language employed in embedded systems, supporting common goals of ECE programs, instead of relying on uncommon languages that have fallen into disuse and are quickly becoming obsolete. Results obtained from end-of- semester surveys are shown to demonstrate that students value the behavior- based elements of the course above other unique features it has to offer.

  • Master and slave transluminal endoscopic robot (MASTER) for natural Orifice Transluminal Endoscopic Surgery (NOTES)

    Although the flexible endoscopy has been widely used in the medical field for many years, there is still great potential in improving the endoscopist's capability to perform therapeutic tasks. Tentatively, tools for the flexible endoscope have poor maneuverability and limited Degree Of Freedom (DOF). In this paper, we propose a surgical robotic system MASTER (Master And Slave Transluminal Endoscopic Robot). MASTER is a dexterous and flexible master- slave device which can be used in tandem with a conventional flexible endoscope. Using this robotic system, ESD (Endoscopic Submucosal Dissection) and NOTES (Natural Orifice Transluminal Endoscopic Surgery) have been conducted on in vivo and ex vivo animal trials with promising results.

  • Learning while doing: practical robotics education

    The students of today are likely to see current advanced products as black boxes. However, trying to open the black boxes is crucially important for the students who are going to be researchers or technical experts. Based on this idea, the curriculum of our department concerning practical robotics education was planned to cultivate the fundamental spirit of students for designing/manufacturing valuable products. In the article, first the basic concepts of practical engineering education are presented. Second, the outline of classes for practical education at the Department of Robotics in Ritsumeikan University are described, including experiments in robotics using 3 degree-of-freedom (DOF) and 6-DOF manipulators and practices of robot making. Then, practical education for a cooperative academia-industry environment is described. Such an education should contribute to the production of valuable products and to the transfer of advanced technologies to industry.

  • The evolution of robotics research

    This article surveys traditional research topics in industrial robotics and mobile robotics and then expands on new trends in robotics research that focus more on the interaction between human and robot. The new trends in robotics research have been denominated service robotics because of their general goal of getting robots closer to human social needs, and this article surveys research on service robotics such as medical robotics, rehabilitation robotics, underwater robotics, field robotics, construction robotics and humanoid robotics. The aim of this article is to provide an overview of the evolution of research topics in robotics from classical motion control for industrial robots to modern intelligent control techniques and social learning paradigms, among other aspects.

  • Preliminary Insights From the METERON SUPVIS Justin Space-Robotics Experiment

    As the human race expands its horizon toward a multiplanetary existence, infrastructures on the target planets have to be constructed and maintained to pave the way for humans. The support of robotic coworkers plays a key role in setting up habitats, energy supplies, and return vehicles, until the completion of such infrastructures in the hazardous planetary environment. The operation of these robots require capabilities including autonomy, communication, and human-robot interface design to meet the challenges of the harsh conditions in space deployment. This letter examines these topics through German Aerospace Center (DLR) and European Space Agency's METERON SUPVIS Justin space telerobotics experiments, during that astronauts on-board the International Space Station command DLR's humanoid robot Rollin' Justin to survey and maintain a simulated Martian solar farm on Earth. Based on the first experiments conducted on August 25, 2017, this letter discusses several astronaut-robot collaboration concepts in real space-to-ground deployment and provides preliminary insights for future manned Mars missions.
