Fault detection and fault tolerance methods for robotics
Fault tolerance is increasingly important in modern autonomous or industrial robots. The ability to detect and tolerate failures allows robots to effectively cope with internal failures and continue performing designated ...
A practical application of a force feedback control system for a mechanical, 3-fingered, dextrous hand
The trajectory planning and control system for a mechanical, 3-fingered, dextrous hand are analyzed and implemented. The forward and inverse kinematics of the fingers are derived and used to analyze the capabilities of the ...
Remote control of a robotic arm through speaker-dependent, isolated-word speech recognition
The focus of this thesis is the remote control of a six degree-of-freedom mid-range industrial robot arm through the use of speech recognition. The robot arm is controlled through speaker-dependent, isolated-word speech ...
The use of scanning laser range finders for autonomous robotic navigation
An intelligent robotic system must possess the capabilities to sense the environment, perceive the environment, reason on the environment and then act based upon the conclusions of the reasoning process. Autonomous robotic ...
