Movement-flow-based visual servoing and force control fusion for Manipulation Tasks in unstructured environmentsPublication Year: 2005, Page(s):4 - 15
Cited by: Papers (18)
A new approach for fusing visual and force information is shown. First, a new method for tracking trajectories, called movement flow-based visual servoing system, which presents the correct behavior in the image and in the three-dimensional space, is described. The information obtained from this system is fused with that obtained from a force control system in unstructured environments. To do so, ... View full abstract»

Autonomous execution of robot tasks requires the ability to deal online with uncertainties such as partially unknown environments, inaccurate models, and measurement noise. This is especially true for the execution of motions maintaining stiff contacts ("compliant motions"), as contact forces become very high even for small position errors. The autonomy during compliant motion tasks is based on i)... View full abstract»

This paper presents and analyzes 12 quality measures that characterize robotic grips according to their stability and reliability. The measures are designed to assess three-finger grips of two-dimensional parts performed in a real environment, taking into account both theoretical aspects and unavoidable uncertainties of a grasping action. They build on the existing literature and on physical and m... View full abstract»

This paper deals with the design and implementation of a visual control of a robotic system composed of a dexterous hand and video camera. The aim of the proposed system is to reproduce the movements of a human hand in order to learn complex manipulation tasks or to interact with the user. A novel algorithm for robust and fast fingertips localization and tracking is presented. A suitable kinematic... View full abstract»
From biological inspiration toward next-generation manipulators: manipulator control focused on human tasksPublication Year: 2005, Page(s):53 - 65
Cited by: Papers (4)
This paper presents our approach to extend the niche of behavior-based robotics toward manipulation. We use results from neuroscience to derive some qualitative design rules for the mechanics of the manipulator, resulting in a next-generation manipulator, the "soft arm". By defining the basic behaviors of the manipulator as trajectory-producing behaviors (which is also biologically plausible), we ... View full abstract»

The main aim behind the design of rehabilitation robotic systems is to support disabled people in daily life situations as well as in the working environment. This requires the autonomous execution of different tasks. In order to achieve the ability of the robotic system to operate autonomously, the sensor system for the scene observation providing the necessary inputs for the manipulator control ...

The purpose of this paper is the description of an application for the complete automation of a mosaics manufacturing process with irregular random pieces, so called trencad/spl inodot//spl acute/s. An intelligent robotic cell has been implemented by using intelligent methods and pattern recognition techniques to assemble unpredictable objects in an autonomous manner. View full abstract»
Including efficient object recognition capabilities in online robots: from a statistical to a Neural-network classifierPublication Year: 2005, Page(s):87 - 96

For those situations in which the user wants to interact with the system by using, for example, voice commands, it would be convenient to refer to the objects by their names (e.g., "cube") instead of other types of interactions (e.g., "grasp object 1"). Thus, automatic object recognition is the first step in order to acquire a higher level of interaction between the user and the robot. Nevertheles... View full abstract»
iBotGuard: an Internet-based Intelligent Robot security system using Invariant Face Recognition against intruderPublication Year: 2005, Page(s):97 - 105
Cited by: Papers (31)
One crucial application of intelligent robotic systems is remote surveillance using a security robot. A fundamental need in security is the ability to automatically verify an intruder into a secure or restricted area, to alert remote security personnel, and then to enable them to track the intruder. In this article, we propose an Internet-based security robot system. The face recognition approach ... View full abstract»

Accurate models of the environment are a crucial requirement for autonomous mobile robots. The process of how to acquire knowledge about the operating environment is one of the most challenging problems in this research area. The quality of the model depends on the number and types of sensors used. Occupancy grids are the most common low-level models of the environment used in robotics for fusion ... View full abstract»

This paper presents an integrated method to identify an object pattern from an image, and track its movement over a sequence of images. The sequence of images comes from a single perspective video source, which is capturing data from a precalibrated scene. This information is used to reconstruct the scene in three-dimension (3-D) within a virtual environment where a user can interact and manipulat... View full abstract»
