    Abstract : Sensor based control systems increase flexibility and autonomy in robotics. One of the most common applications in robotics is welding, which is often limited to objects with fine tolerances. READ MORE

  3. 3. Automation in forestry : development of unmanned forwarders

    Author : Ola Ringdahl; Thomas Hellström; Tomas Nordfjell; Arto Visala; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; NATURVETENSKAP; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; NATURAL SCIENCES; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; Computer science; Datavetenskap; Forest engineering; Skogsteknik; computer and systems sciences; data- och systemvetenskap;

    Abstract : For the last 50 year, forestry operations have become more and more mechanized. In modern forestry in Europe two machines are typically used; a harvester that fells, debranches and cross-cuts the trees into logs and a forwarder that transports them to the nearest road. READ MORE

  4. 4. Competitive Internal Logistics Systems through Automation

    Author : Anna Granlund; Mats Jackson; Magnus Wiktorsson; Carl Wänström; Mälardalens högskola; []

  5. 5. Unwrapping Cobol : Lessons in Crisis Computing

    Author : Linda Hilfling Ritasdatter; Susan Kozel; Maria Hellström Reimer; Florian Cramer; Nishant Shah; Malmö universitet; []
    Keywords : Crisis; Execution; Maintenance; Cobol; Automation; Global Flows; Y2K; Human Factor; Outsourcing; Development; Legacy Systems; Programming Languages; History of Computing; HCI; Software Wrapping; Postcolonial Studies; Diffraction; Broken world thinking; Grace Hopper; Media Archaeology; Debugging; Zombie Media; Obsolescence; Technological Development; Unsettling Ontologies; Fourth Industrial Revolution; Artificial Intelligence; Interaktionsdesign; Interaktionsdesign;

    Abstract : By engaging with COBOL, a detested and would-be obsolete programming language, the dark sides of automation are examined in this thesis: hidden workforces and computational infrastructures that are, in reality, central to the execution and maintenance of global economic and informational flows. Frictions within these flows are made more visible in moments of crisis when asymmetrical power structures are surfaced, as demonstrated in an analysis of the infamous Y2K Bug, its connection to the outsourcing boom in India and the legacy of COBOL.
