    Service robots are programmable automated or semiautomated mechanical devices designed to perform a specific service rather than a manufacturing function. Robots were initially used in the automation sector to handle repetitive and simple tasks reliably, with the objective of cost reduction per product. Along with the increased speed of embedded microcontrollers, the service robotic sector has sta... View full abstract»

    The bond-graph method is a graphical approach to modeling in which component energy ports are connected by bonds that specify the transfer of energy between system components. Power, the rate of energy transport between components, is the universal currency of physical systems. Bond graphs are inherently energy based and thus related to other energy-based methods, including dissipative systems and... View full abstract»

    This article advances an analysis and compensator design framework for power-factor compensation based on cyclodissipativity. Although the framework applies to general polyphase unbalanced circuits, this paper have focused on the problem of power factor compensation with LTI capacitors or inductors of single-phase loads. The full power of the approach are expected to become evident for polyphase u... View full abstract»

    Global optimization techniques, such as dynamic programming, serve mainly to evaluate the potential fuel economy of a given powertrain configuration. Unless the future driving conditions can be predicted during real-time operation but the results obtained using this noncausal approach establish a benchmark for evaluating the optimality of realizable control strategies. Real-time controllers must b... View full abstract»

    The purpose of this article is to provide a tutorial overview of information consensus in multivehicle cooperative control. Theoretical results regarding consensus-seeking under both time invariant and dynamically changing communication topologies are summarized. Several specific applications of consensus algorithms to multivehicle coordination are described View full abstract»
