Here, we minimize the H_{∞} norm for the force regulation and error in step estimation while maintaining the H_{2} norm of the noise on step estimate within user specified bounds. We demonstrate the efficacy of the framework through extensive simulations and an experimental implementation using an optical tweezer setup with live samples of the motor protein “kinesin”, where regulation of forces below 1 piconewton with errors below 10% is obtained while simultaneously providing real-time estimates of motor motion.]]>234153215423946<![CDATA[Closed-Loop Particle Motion Control Using Laser-Induced Thermocapillary Convective Flows at the Fluid/Gas Interface at Micrometric Scale]]>234154315543831<![CDATA[Magnetic Position Estimation in Ferromagnetic Systems Involving Significant Hysteresis]]>234155515632691<![CDATA[Visual Tracking of Six-Axis Motion Rendering Ultraprecise Visual Servoing of Microscopic Objects]]>234156415723503<![CDATA[A Soft Magnetic Core can Enhance Navigation Performance of Magnetic Nanoparticles in Targeted Drug Delivery]]>234157315845011<![CDATA[Transformable <italic>In Vivo</italic> Robotic Laparoscopic Camera With Optimized Illumination System for Single-Port Access Surgery: Initial Prototype]]>234158515968044<![CDATA[Automatic Recognition of Gait Phases Using a Multiple-Regression Hidden Markov Model]]>234159716071547<![CDATA[Standing Mobility Device With Passive Lower Limb Exoskeleton for Upright Locomotion]]>234160816183617<![CDATA[Grasp and Stress Analysis of an Underactuated Finger for Proprioceptive Tactile Sensing]]>234161916292740<![CDATA[A Fast Rolling Soft Robot Driven by Dielectric Elastomer]]>-1.

The switching of the mobile part in xy-plane is achieved by injecting currents in the fixed planar wires situated beneath it. The actuator design integrates a coil to switch the mobile part between two predefined levels in z-axis. To maintain the mobile part at a discrete position without energy consumption, six fixed cylindrical permanent magnets are placed around the mobile part. To design the actuator, a model has been developed and is presented in this paper. Rapid prototyping approach (laser cutting) is used to fabricate the actuator prototype. The maximum and the minimum strokes in xy-plane are between 0.5 to 1.0 mm while along z-axis the actuator is able to perform a stroke of 1.0 mm. Experiments have been conducted on the prototype to validate the proposed design and the 3-D actuation. The performance characterization has been conduced and the experimental and the simulated results have been compared.]]>234165316612677<![CDATA[Torque Sensor Embedded Actuator Module for Robotic Applications]]>234166216725600<![CDATA[Continuous Friction Feedforward Sliding Mode Controller for a TriMule Hybrid Robot]]>234167316834236<![CDATA[Out-of-Plane Vibration Control of a Planar Cable-Driven Parallel Robot]]>234168416921987<![CDATA[Kinematics, Dynamics, and Control of a Cable-Driven Hyper-Redundant Manipulator]]>234169317043807<![CDATA[An Affordable Set of Control System Laboratories Using A Low-Cost Robotic Platform]]>234170517152592<![CDATA[A Novel Omnidirectional Mobile Robot With Wheels Connected by Passive Sliding Joints]]>234171617272767<![CDATA[Unified Visual Servoing Tracking and Regulation of Wheeled Mobile Robots With an Uncalibrated Camera]]>234172817391659<![CDATA[Aerial Manipulator Interactions With Trees for Canopy Sampling]]>234174017492201<![CDATA[Distributed Formation Control for Multiple Vertical Takeoff and Landing UAVs With Switching Topologies]]>234175017611970<![CDATA[Multiobjective Optimization Design of a Switched Reluctance Motor for Low-Speed Electric Vehicles With a Taguchi–CSO Algorithm]]>234176217744114<![CDATA[Fault-Tolerant Control of Electric Ground Vehicles Using a Triple-Step Nonlinear Approach]]>234177517862844<![CDATA[An Innovative Two-Layer Multiple-DOF Seat Suspension for Vehicle Whole Body Vibration Control]]>234178717995948<![CDATA[Experimental Assessment of a Controlled Slippage Magnetorheological Actuator for Active Seat Suspensions]]>234180018102677<![CDATA[Optimal Combustion Phasing Modeling and Control of a Turbulent Jet Ignition Engine]]>234181118221719<![CDATA[Dynamic Model for Magnetostrictive Systems With Applications to Damper Design]]>81.6Ga_{18.4} within the structural frequency range (up to 800 Hz). The magnetic biasing is provided by applying a constant current of 500 mA on a pair of electromagnets; the mechanical excitation is a sinusoidal stress wave (3 ± 0.2 MPa) superimposed on a -20 MPa constant stress. As stress frequency increases, the piezomagnetic coefficient decreases from 32.27 to 10.33 T/GPa and the phase lag |Δφ| increases from 11.38° to 43.87°. A rate-dependent finite element framework decoupling eddy current loss and hysteresis loss is then developed. The model accurately reproduces the experimental results in both quasi-static and dynamic regimes. Guided by the knowledge of material properties and the finite element model, a coil-less and solid-state damper is designed which can attenuate vibrations before they propagate and induce structure-borne noise and damage. Modeling results show that the loss factor of this damper can be continuously tuned from 0 to a maximum value of 0.107 by adjusting the precompression on the magnetostrictive component.]]>234182318313793<![CDATA[Design of Active Controller for Low-Frequency Vibration Isolation Considering Noise Levels of Bandwidth-Extended Absolute Velocity Sensors]]>234183218424768<![CDATA[Rapid Prototyping High-Performance MR Safe Pneumatic Stepper Motors]]>234184318534126<![CDATA[Reducing the Power Consumption of a Shape Memory Alloy Wire Actuator Drive by Numerical Analysis and Experiment]]>234185418655173<![CDATA[Online Reconfiguration of a Variable-Stiffness Actuator]]>234186618761836<![CDATA[Realization of an Energy-Efficient Adjustable Mechatronic Spring]]>234187718852509<![CDATA[A Method for a Precise and Instantaneous Measurement of a Refractive Index]]>-4 in RI measurement is achieved due to the ability of localizing laser stripe displacements with the subpixel accuracy and robust image processing algorithms.
