    The factory of the future will resemble a very large scale intelligent machine that operates with a highly integrated and well-organized base of knowledge. It must be flexible with regard to changes in demand, technology, economic conditions, and competitive pressures. Above all, it must accurately measure and interpret both what the customer wants and what it can make. The incredible advances tha... View full abstract»

    A prototype expert system has been developed for the time scheduling of aircraft into the terminal area. The three functions of the air-traffic-control schedule advisor are as follows: First, for each new arrival, it develops an admissible flight plan for that aircraft. Second, as the aircraft progresses through the terminal area, it monitors deviations from the aircraft's flight plan and provides... View full abstract»

    This paper discusses three milestones that must be reached before telerobotics technology is ready for a useful role on the space station: (1) A telerobotic manipulator, which integrates remote manned control with automation and robotics, must be designed. A new, unique design for such a system is described. (2) Technology that is developed and demonstrated in the lab must be integrated and valida... View full abstract»

    Cited by:  Papers (5)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (536 KB)

    This paper discusses advanced flight control for the Apache YAH-64 helicopter. The control laws have been flight tested and were extensively evaluated with fixed-base piloted simulation as part of the Advanced Rotorcraft Technology Integration Flight Experiment. The control system employs as sensors normal and lateral acclerometers and three body rate gyros; for control, it uses collective, tail r... View full abstract»

    The ordered structure of agricultural row crops can provide useful guidance information for tractor control. A description of research for coupling a machine vision system and a solid-state camera to derive vehicle guidance parameters for a tractor is presented. Image segmentation is enhanced by optical filtering and controlling light intensity to the image sensor. An analysis of camera location a... View full abstract»

    A historical review of recent results in robust control is presented. The robust control problem, i.e., the problem of designing accurate control systems in the presence of significant plant uncertainties, is classical. However, over the past 15 years, significant new theory has been developed for the solution of this problem, especially with respect to linear multivariable systems characterized i...

  • Introduction to dynamic models for robot force control

    Publication Year: 1987, Page(s):48 - 52
    Cited by:  Papers (49)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (533 KB)

    Endpoint compliance strategies for precise robot control utilize feedback from a force sensor located near the tool/ workpiece interface. The closed-loop performance of such endpoint force control systems has been observed in the laboratory to be limited and unsatisfactory for industrial applications. This article discusses the particular dynamic properties of robot systems that can lead to instab... View full abstract»
