  1. 1. A behavior-based control system for mobile manipulation

    Author : Zbigniew Wasik; Alessandro Saffiotti; Dimiter Driankov; Bruno Siciliano; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; behavior-based systems; vision-based manipulation; mobile manipulation; fuzzy logic; intelligent control; autonomous robotics; Computer science; Datavetenskap; Computer and Systems Science; Data- och systemvetenskap;

    Abstract : The field of industrial robotics can be defined as the study, design and use of robot manipulators for manufacturing. Although the problem of designing a controller for industrial robots has been subject of intensive study, a number of assumptions are usually made which may seriously limit the applicability of these robots.

  2. 2. Reactive control and coordination of redundant robotic systems

    Author : Yuquan Wang; Petter Ögren; Abderrahmane Kheddar; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; reactive control; dual-arm manipulation; mobile manipulation; ambulance positioning.; Computer Science; Datalogi;

    Abstract : Redundant robotic systems, in terms of manipulators with one or twoarms, mobile manipulators, and multi-agent systems, have received an in-creasing amount of attention in recent years. In this thesis we describe severalways to improve robotic system performance by exploiting the redundancy. READ MORE

  3. 3. Path-Connectivity of the Free Space : Caging and Path Existence

    Author : Anastasiia Varava; Danica Kragic; Alberto Rodriguez; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Robotics; Manipulation; Caging; Computer Science; Datalogi;

    Abstract : The notion of configuration space is a tool that allows to reason aboutan object’s mobility in a unified manner. The problem of verifying path non-existence can be considered as dual to path planning. READ MORE

  4. 4. Towards Manipulator Learning by Demonstration and Reinforcement Learning

    Author : Alexander Skoglund; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Manipulation; learning; robot learning from demonstration; programming by demonstration; imitation in robotics.; Computer science; Datavetenskap;

    Abstract : This thesis address how robotic arms, called manipulators, can learn a task demonstrated by a teacher. The concept of showing a robot a task, instead of manually programming it, is appealing since it makes it easier to instruct robots. READ MORE

  5. 5. Planning and Control of Uncertain Cooperative Mobile Manipulator-Endowed Systems under Temporal Logic Tasks

    Author : Christos Verginis; Dimos Dimarogonas; Magnus Egerstedt; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; multi-agent systems; cooperative manipulation; formation control; temporal logic; motion planning; adaptive control; funnel control; navigation; Electrical Engineering; Elektro- och systemteknik;

    Abstract : Control and planning of multi-agent systems is an active and increasingly studied topic of research, with many practical applications such as rescue missions, security, surveillance, and transportation. This thesis addresses the planning and control of multi-agent systems under temporal logic tasks. READ MORE
