    This paper presents a neural network motion tracking control methodology for piezo-actuated flexure-based micro-/nanomanipulation mechanisms. In particular, the radial basis function neural networks are adopted for function approximations. The control objective is to track desired motion trajectories in the presence of unknown system parameters, nonlinearities including the hysteresis effect, and ... View full abstract»

    This paper analyzes track-stair interactions and develops an online tipover prediction algorithm for a self-reconfigurable tracked mobile robot climbing stairs, which is vulnerable to tipping-over. Tipover prediction and prevention for a tracked mobile robot in stair climbing are intractable problems because of the complex track--stair interactions. Unlike the wheeled mobile robots, which are norm... View full abstract»

    In this paper, new control strategies based on linear matrix inequalities and Markov jump linear systems are proposed for bilateral teleoperation systems over networks with random time delays and packet losses. The characteristics of the network are thoroughly incorporated in the design and two cases are considered: where both communication directions behave identically and where they are independ...

    Write strategy tuning for optical recording devices (ORDs) is laborious and time consuming. An automated learning approach based on the genetic algorithm (GA) is proposed to automatically learn the write strategy implemented in an ORD for dye recording media. To evaluate the writing performance associated with every set of writing parameters in the write strategy, jitters corresponding to differen... View full abstract»

    The latest research in mesoscale drive systems is targeting rotational speeds toward 1 million r/min for a power range of 1-1 kW. Emerging applications for megaspeed drives (MegaNdrives) are to be found in future turbo compressor systems for fuel cells and heat pumps, generators/starters for portable nanoscale gas turbines, printed circuit board drilling and machining spindles, and electric...

    This paper is concerned with robust position and contact force control for 7-DOF redundant robot arms. An outer-inner loop controller, called the augmented hybrid impedance control scheme is developed. A 6-DOF force/torque sensor is used to measure the interaction forces. These are fed back to the outer-loop controller that implements either a force or an impedance controller in each of the 6 DOF ... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we present an innovative design of a solder paste inspection system that can be practically integrated into existing solder paste printing machines. Since solder paste inspection systems usually occupy a large vertical space, we designed a mirror box that can redirect the transmission of fringe patterns. In this way, a new parallel-structure solder paste inspection system with a sig... View full abstract»

  • Feedforward Controller of Ill-Conditioned Hysteresis Using Singularity-Free Prandtl–Ishlinskii Model

    Piezoelectric, magnetostrictive, and shape memory alloy actuators are gaining importance in high-frequency precision applications constrained by space. Their intrinsic hysteretic behavior makes control difficult. The Prandtl-Ishlinskii (PI) operator can model hysteresis well, albeit a major inadequacy: the inverse operator does not exist when the hysteretic curve gradient is not positive definite,...

    Haptic gloves open up the world of force feedback by allowing the user to pick up and feel virtual objects in a natural way. In most of the existing gloves, a remote box houses a large number of actuators and sensors. Power to the glove is transmitted via cables. If the haptic gloves were smaller, lighter, and easier to use and control, they could become more common as human-machine interfaces. Re... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a precise positioning control of a microparallel positioning platform using a dual-stage servo system. The result of the research can be applied to dual-stage-type parallel machines for improving the positioning accuracy. The proposed platform adopts a dual-stage system that consists of three coarse actuators and three fine actuators to realize 3 degrees of freedom (DOF) motion... View full abstract»

    We present here an analysis and simulation model of an unconstrained on-off poppet valve, which includes the modeling of a piezoelectric actuator (PEA), Hertzian contact, dynamics of poppet motion, and airflow through an orifice. The flow rate generated and the input/output relationship between input frequency/flow rate and voltage/flow rate at different levels of inlet pressure were measured expe... View full abstract»
