  1. 1. Active Vibration Control of Multibody Systems : Application to Automotive Design

    Author : Claes Olsson; Alexander Medvedev; Stephen Elliott; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Active Vibration Control; Vibration Isolation; Feedback Control; Adaptive Filtering; Saturation; Limit Cycles; Multi Body Systems; Modelling; Simulation; Non-linearity; Gain Scheduling; Structure Flexibility; Automatic control; Reglerteknik;

    Abstract : Active vibration control to reduce vibrations and structure borne noise is considered using a powerful multi-disciplinary virtual design environment which enables control system design to be considered as an integral part of the overall vehicle design. The main application studied is active automotive engine vibration isolation where, first, the potential of large frequency band multi-input multi-output H2 feedback control is considered. READ MORE

  2. 2. The Privatisation of Security and State Control of Force: Changes, Challenges and the Case of Iraq

    Author : Joakim Berndtsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; peace and development research; privatisation of security; private security companies; civil-military relations; state control of force; state monopoly of violence; Iraq;

    Abstract : The thematic focus of this dissertation is the privatisation of security, that is, the increasing use of private security companies (PSCs) to perform security- and military-related tasks traditionally associated with the state and institutions such as the police or the military. More concretely, the study investigates security privatisation in the context of violent conflict and in relation to the problem of state control of force. READ MORE

  3. 3. On Robotic Work-Space Sensing and Control

    Author : Magnus Linderoth; Institutionen för reglerteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Robotics; computer vision; color constancy; motion blur; filter initialization; visual tracking; on-line trajectory generation; ball-catching robot; force control; robotic assembly; force estimation; perception-action capabilities.;

    Abstract : Industrial robots are fast and accurate when working with known objects at precise locations in well-structured manufacturing environments, as done in the classical automation setting. In one sense, limited use of sensors leaves robots blind and numb, unaware of what is happening in their surroundings. READ MORE

  4. 4. Feedback Control and Sensor Fusion of Vision and Force

    Author : Tomas Olsson; Institutionen för reglerteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; sensor based robot control; Visual tracking; visual servoing; resource optimization; Kalman filter;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with feedback control using two different sensor types, force sensors and cameras. In many tasks robotics compliance is required in order to avoid damage to the workpiece. Force and vision are the most useful sensing capabilities for a robot system operating in an unknown or uncalibrated environment. READ MORE

  5. 5. Robotic Work-Space Sensing and Control

    Author : Magnus Linderoth; Institutionen för reglerteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; assembly; force control; on-line trajectory generation; filter initialization; visual tracking; Robotics; computer vision; cooperating robots;

    Abstract : Industrial robots are traditionally programmed using only the internal joint position sensors, in a sense leaving the robot blind and numb. Using external sensors, such as cameras and force sensors, allows the robot to detect the existence and position of objects in an unstructured environment, and to handle contact situations not possible using only position control.
