    A system for performing visual processing on gray-scale images in real time (60 Hz) has been constructed. The custom VLSI moment generator chip computes area, center of gravity, orientation, and size. An image preprocessor allows separate moments to be computed for separate regions. A standard set of buses allows new processing elements to be easily added. The system is expected to find applicatio... View full abstract»

    In some comercially available industrial robots such as the Cincinnati T3, and the Bendix MA-510, the actuator of the third joint, which is one of the larger actuators, is mounted on the same platform as that of the second joint in order to reduce the load on the second joint. With this arrangement, the torque that moves the third moving link is transmitted through a four-bar or five-bar linkage m... View full abstract»

    A parallel-processing scheme is described for robot-arm control computation on any number of parallel processors. The scheme employs two multiprocessor scheduling algorithms called, respectively, depth first/implicit heuristic search (DF/IHS) and critical path/most immediate successors first (CP/MISF); these were recently developed by the authors. The scheme is applied to the parallel processing o... View full abstract»

    An industrial robot (IR) position-control algorithm will be presented that was developed at the Fraunhofer Institute for the highly accurate cutting of geometrically complex metal surfaces. In the past the extreme tolerance requirements for hard alloy workpieces had to be met manually or by means of expensive specialized machine tools. It is shown that this advanced manufacturing task can be solve... View full abstract»

    The basic concept of an adaptable fixturing system and its hardware implementation are described. The system employs reconfigurable fixture elements that are used to locate and hold various workparts for assembly. The fixture configuration can be changed automatically depending upon the workpart geometry and the assembly operations required. Analytic tools are developed for designing fixture layou...
