Since 70s when the NASA started to research on Flexible Robots, the flexible manipulators have been around the robotics community. Although, Flexible manipulators have found applications only in space applications, like the Canadarm and the Space Station Remote Manipulator System, or SSRMS. Industr…

The project RIMRES uses a multi-robot system with an ability to perform reconfiguration for increase fault tolerance. The robotic system will not operate completely autonomously, but be monitored and (semi-)supervised by human operators from a mission control center. To achieve its goals RIMRES de…

RIMRES - Project Presentation

from: Florian Cordes  (DFKI GmbH)
In RIMRES, a wheeled rover, a legged scout and several immobile payload units are developed. The systems will work together in a tightly coupled fashion. Therefore, an electro mechanical interface is developed to facilitate the connection of the systems. For operation of the systems, a software fram…

Hierarchical Temporal Memory (HTM) is a classification and pattern recognition framework modeled on the neocortex. One of the features that makes this framework different from others is its use of "time as a supervisor" to create invariant representations. For this reason, HTM models are trained wit…

Robotic Perception Using Vision and Tactility

from: Martin Görner + Michael Suppa  (DLR Institut für Robotik und Mechatronik)
The goal of DLRs research is to enable a wholistic perception of robotic systems using the two predominant robot senses vision and tactility. Perception and cognition are elementary components for tele-operated, assistance and autonomous robot systems, due to the fact that they enable reactive behav…

In classical industrial robotics, robots are concealed within structured and well-known environments performing highly-repetitive tasks. In contrast, current robotic applications require more direct interaction with humans, cooperating with them to achieve a common task and entering home scenarios. …

Characterization and Modeling of Inertial Sensors for Rover Attitude Estimation

from: Javier Hidalgo Carrió  (European Space Agency - Polécnica University of Madrid)
On-going European developments in Micro Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS) sensors sponsored significantly by the European Space Agency (ESA) offer a suitable level of performance for spacecrafts. Solid-state technology offers mechanical robustness, with low power consumption, mass and size, which ar…

Space robotics is becoming more and more important in recent years. Missions and situations that can be too risky for humans are well suited for robotic agents. However, autonomous manipulation and navigation in robotic systems is not yet advanced enough to deal with complex situations in space miss…

Robust pipeline tracking is critical for AUV technology to succeed in the commercial sector. To address this topic an internal project was started to enhance the existing AUV AVALON to be capable of tracking and following pipelines in shallow water. This talk will give a brief overview of this proje…

By no doubt, the problem of inverse kinematics is the most important part of studying the motion of mechanical systems. In this article, a mathematical solution to the problem of inverse kinematics in a mechanical manipulator is introduced, developed and generalized for various conventions of repres…
