    The TETROBOT is an actuated robotic structure which may be reassembled into many different configurations while still being controlled by the same hardware and software architecture. The TETROBOT system addresses the needs of application domains, such as space, undersea, mining, and construction, where adaptation to unstructured and changing environments and custom design for rapid implementation are required View full abstract»

    This approach, designed for mobile robots equipped with synchro-drives, is derived directly from the motion dynamics of the robot. In experiments, the dynamic window approach safely controlled the mobile robot RHINO at speeds of up to 95 cm/sec, in populated and dynamic environments View full abstract»

    A simple, but effective, method of calibrating a multimanipulator robotic system is introduced. The algorithm uses precisely machined calibration plates which are inexpensive to manufacture and require no measuring instrumentation. The method is tested on a dual-arm system which resulted in an order of magnitude reduction in the pose error. Coordinated dual-arm manipulation experiments are conducted using the calibrated kinematic model to validate the usefulness of the calibration process View full abstract»
