  1. 1. Legged locomotion : Balance, control and tools - from equation to action

    Author : Christian Ridderström; KTH; []
    Keywords : legged locomotion; control; balance; legged machines; legged robots; walking robots; walking machines; compliance; platform stability;

    Abstract : This thesis is about control and balance stability of leggedlocomotion. It also presents a combination of tools that makesit easier to design controllers for large and complicated robotsystems. The thesis is divided into four parts. READ MORE

  2. 2. Actuators for autonomous microrobots

    Author : Niklas Snis; Stefan Johansson; Urban Simu; Alvo Aabloo; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Engineering physics; Locomotion; Microrobot; PZT; P VDF-TrFE ; Autonomous; Multilayer; Actuator; Teknisk fysik;

    Abstract : This thesis presents actuators used in autonomous microsystems. Characteristic for all actuators presented is the low drive voltage and the low power consumption. Different motion mechanisms have been studied and applied in various locomotion modules for microrobots. READ MORE

  4. 4. Applications of active materials

    Author : Erik Edqvist; Greger Thornell; Bengt Lundberg; Edwin Jäger; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Energy efficient; microsystem; resonating cantilevers; microactuators; P VDF-TrFE ; surface mounting assembly; multi layers; flexible printed circuit board; conveyer; three legged; Materials science; Teknisk materialvetenskap; materialvetenskap; Materials Science;

    Abstract : Energy efficiency is a vital key component when designing and miniaturizing self sustained microsystems. The smaller the system, the smaller is the possibility to store enough stored energy for a long and continuous operational time. READ MORE
