Robot reliability through fuzzy Markov models
In the past few years, new applications of robots have increased the importance of robotic reliability and fault tolerance. Standard approaches of reliability engineering rely on the probability model, which is often ...
Integral manifold based control design of an electromechanical system
The control problem of an electromechanical system becomes more complex when the flexibility and friction are taken into account in the system model. To approach this problem, an electromechanical system is studied in this ...
Inverse kinematics and dynamic control methods for robotic systems
This dissertation presents new algorithms for inverse kinematic computations of robotic manipulators and for the control of multiple cooperating manipulator systems. The results presented in this thesis can be classified ...
Experimental and analytical results for longitudinal electromagnetic levitation
Electromagnetic levitation offers the possibility of working with metals in a containerless fashion. In order to realize this on a commercial basis, a solid theoretical understanding of the phenomena is needed, coupled ...
Alignment of threaded parts using a robot hand: Theory and experiments
Techniques for determining and correcting threaded part alignment using minimal force and angular position data are developed to augment currently limited techniques for aligning threaded parts. These new techniques are ...
