A semi-autonomous mobile robot/teleoperator with applications as an aid for severely handicapped people
A framework for a practical, easy-to-use system which can allow severely handicapped people to control and interact with their home and work environments is presented. Software written for a personal computer allows the ...
A physically motivated reduced-order modal energy technique for ARMA spectrum estimation
A reduced-order modal energy (ROME) technique for spectrum estimation is introduced. In this technique the transfer function of a higher-order autoregressive (AR) model of a power spectrum is decomposed into partial ...
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 ...
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 ...
A neural network approach to the redundant robot inverse kinematic problem in the presence of obstacles
Redundancy in robots is very much an open research area in the field of robotics. As the tasks required of robots become more and more complex, the ability of robots to perform satisfactorily in these applications must ...
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. ...
