    Robot manipulator design and development involves complex multidisciplinary engineering and mechatronics technology is a big part of the picture. Manipulator design requirements pose many challenges centered on the integration of precise high-speed mechanisms, compact form factors, and complex power trains. Competing requirements lead to difficult design processes and tradeoffs, and the fundamenta... View full abstract»

    A novel way to identify friction model and torque sensor parameters of a modular robot joint is proposed and experimentally studied in this paper. The identification method is based on a genetic algorithm (GA). A model based friction compensation method and a real coded GA are integrated in the proposed method, and then applied to an experimental modular robot joint with a harmonic drive and built...

    The advantages of reconfigurable robots have been discussed in the specialized literature. Conventionally, reconfig-urability was a direct result of using modular joints. In this paper we discuss the configuration control and recalibration of a different class of reconfigurable robots, one which is equipped with lockable cylindrical joints with no actuators or sensors. Such a robot can be as versa... View full abstract»

    Architecture forms the backbone of robotic control systems and has to be carefully studied before the system is built. In this paper, after insight and exclusive discussions on control system architecture requirements of modular and re-configurable robot manipulators are presented, a hybrid architecture is proposed and described in details. The proposed architecture has been implemented on a modul... View full abstract»

    Traditional fixed morphology robots are limited to purely functional adaptation and thereby to a limited range of applications. In contrast modular self-reconfigurable robots can dynamically and autonomously change both their function and morphology to meet new demands of changing tasks. Therefore, self-reconfigurable robots have the potential to become highly versatile. This paper documents and d... View full abstract»

    Using higher resonant modes of microcantilevers promises higher sensitivity in the bio/chemical molecular detection. Compared with the first flexure modes, the first torsional mode can provide an improved mass-sensing resolution due to the higher quality factor. For the accurate characterization of the torsional mode and further detection of the multi-mass attached to the microcantilevers, models ... View full abstract»
