A vision-based fuzzy logic and neural network approach to the control of hyper-redundant robot manipulators
Hyper-redundant robot manipulators possess a very large degree of kinematic redundancy and are capable of motion similar to that of snakes and elephant trunks. Because of the computational burden required to calculate the ...
Design, analysis, implementation, and control of a mobile robotic testbed for telepresence
A unique mobile telepresence testbed has been designed and implemented. This testbed is a tool for research in telepresence and tele-existence for control of remote robotic systems. An eight-degree-of-freedom, redundant ...
The use of a laser imaging system for automated vehicle guidance and space servicing tasks
This thesis presents a simulation of a laser imaging system for automated vehicle guidance and space servicing tasks. Data generated by this system are used to command a robot navigating in an unconstrained natural terrain. ...
