    The need for high accuracy combined with speed of response in the control of multi-axes robots is discussed. Work at the author's laboratory is reviewed, showing how the requirements can be met with a combination of microelectronic components in the form of a modular microcomputer system. The discussion addresses robot control with geared servo drives, and cascade control, the reference trajectory... View full abstract»

    The development of overall control for a robot system that is used to milk cows at the cow's own demand (without intervention by the farmer) is described. The focus is on design of the inner- and outer-loop control of the robot arm developed especially for this system. The strategy for connecting the milking cups to the cow (consisting of an approach mode, capture mode and locking mode) is highlig... View full abstract»

    A computing structure for control applications in which there is a natural hierarchical structure (allowing algorithms devoted to simple tasks to be placed at the lowest level and complex tasks at the higher levels) is described. The architecture consists of a high-level general-purpose computer (host) and up to eight digital signal processors (DSPs) that can be interfaced with the controlled plan... View full abstract»

  • Image based operation for human-robot interaction

    Publication Year: 1990, Page(s):24 - 26

    A prototype system for human-robot interaction based on the mental image of the task is described. The mental image is a visual model that reflects a real-world situation, such as object placement in the work space, and simulates the effects of robot action in this situation. A human operator estimates and plans the task using this mental image. The system architecture used to produce the mental i... View full abstract»
