  1. 1. Cooperative and Interaction Control for Underwater Robotic Vehicles

    Author : Shahab Heshmati-Alamdari; Kostas J. Kyriakopoulos; National Technical University of Athens School of Mechanical Engineering Control Systems Lab; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Marine robotics; Robotics; Underwater Vehicle Manipulator Systems; Cooperative manipulations; Visual servoing; Nonlinear Model Predictive Control; Autonomous Underwater Vehicles; Industriella informations- och styrsystem; Industrial Information and Control Systems; Farkostteknik; Vehicle and Maritime Engineering;

    Abstract : In this dissertation we address the problem of robust control for underwater robotic vehicles under resource constraints and inspired by practical applications in the field of marine robotics. By the term “resource constraints” we refer to systems with constraints on communication, sensing and energy resources. READ MORE

  2. 2. Adaptation and Learning for Manipulators and Machining

    Author : Olof Sörnmo; Institutionen för reglerteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : This thesis presents methods for improving the accuracy and efficiency of tasks performed using different kinds of industrial manipulators, with a focus on the application of machining. Industrial robots offer a flexible and cost-efficient alternative to machine tools for machining, but cannot achieve as high accuracy out of the box. READ MORE

  3. 3. Thermoelectric Measurements for Temperature Control of Robotic Friction Stir Welding

    Author : Ana Catarina Ferreira Magalhães; Gunnar Bolmsjö; Jeroen De Backer; Jean Pierre Bergmann; Högskolan Väst; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Friction stir welding; Aluminium; Temperature measurements; Process control; Robotics; Geometrically complex components; Friktionsomrörningssvetsning; Aluminium; temperaturmätning; Processstyrning; Robotik; Geometriskt komplexa komponenter; Production Technology; Produktionsteknik; Manufacturing and materials engineering; Produktions- och materialteknik;

    Abstract : Friction stir welding (FSW) has undergone a rapid expansion in several industrial sectors such as in the aerospace, marine, railway and automotive sectors. Current industrial applications are mainly simple long straight welds, but there is a growth of interest in components with higher geometric complexity. READ MORE

  4. 4. Colour Correction of Underwater Images Using Spectral Data

    Author : Julia Åhlén; Ewert Bengtsson; Jussi Parkkinen; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Bildanalys; Colour; Correction; Attenuation; Coefficient; Underwater; Bildanalys; Image analysis; Bildanalys; Computer science; Datavetenskap;

    Abstract : For marine sciences sometimes there is a need to perform underwater photography. Optical properties of light cause severe quality problems for underwater photography. Light of different energies is absorbed at highly different rates under water causing significant bluishness of the images. READ MORE
