A path planning and obstacle avoidance hybrid system using a connectionist network
Automated path planning and obstacle avoidance has been the subject of intensive research in recent times. Most efforts in the field of semiautonomous mobile-robotic navigation involve using Artificial Intelligence search ...
A modular fingertip design for normal force feedback control of a 3-fingered dextrous robotic hand
Despite the advances in dextrous hand mechanics over the past decade, fingertip force remains predominantly controlled by flexor cable tension and joint position. A modular fingertip normal force sensor is developed here ...
Genetic algorithm tuning of a fuzzy logic controller for a dynamic system
This thesis describes the use of the genetic algorithm to facilitate the design process of a fuzzy logic based controller. The basic mechanics of both the fuzzy logic control system and the genetic algorithm are presented ...
