    Visual feedback has traditionally been used in the assembly process to a very limited extent. By incorporating high bandwidth visual feedback into the manipulator feedback loop, more flexible and adaptable robotic assembly systems can be developed. The authors present experimentally tested algorithms and propose solutions for the problem of dynamic sensor placement in assembly tasks View full abstract»

    XAnimate has been developed at The Ohio State University to provide portable graphical simulation capabilities at no cost. XAnimate's graphical user interface, C library of functions, and a set of predefined objects enable users to easily display animated wireframe images or solid color objects for robotics systems of any topological structure. The use of X Windows and C allows the package to be p... View full abstract»

    An important aspect of robust automated assembly is an accurate and efficient method for the inspection of finished assemblies. This novel algorithm is trained on synthetic images generated using the CAD model of the different components of the assembly. Once trained on synthetic images, the algorithm can detect assembly errors by examining real images of the assembled product View full abstract»

    With only one motor per finger and a simple, easy to maintain, mechanical structure, the Graspar robotic hand uses minimal computation to provide secure grasping of objects ranging from eggs and light bulbs to tennis rackets, coffee pots and stuffed toys. We first discuss currently developed hands, and show the motivation for our work. Next, we present the mechanical structure of our robotic hand ... View full abstract»
