In the recent decades, many missions have been undertaken to investigate Europa, one of Jupiter’s moons. It’s surface consists of a thick ice crust which covers a deep ocean underneath it. To inspect the ocean a system was conceptualized at DFKI Bremen which would drill through the ice and then depl…

Long-term autonomous robotic missions, especially in isolated environments, have to cope with various challenges, e.g., limited possibilities for maintenance or recovery in case of failure. Better adaptation of the robot to its environment is therefore the first step towards a more robust behavioura…

Evaluation of metrics for human-like grips

from: Florian Seidler  (Universität Bremen)
For each grasp, there are a large number of possible contact points with different properties. The quality of grasps can be determined using metrics. Metrics are tools that can be used to measure a specific characteristic of a process.  To mimic human grasping, these metrics could be used. Howe…

Control Strategies for a Rimless Wheel Micro-Rover

from: Dennis Schlee  (TU Darmstadt)
Rimless wheeled robots are a hybrid variant of traditionally wheeled and legged robots. These hybrid systems combine the benefits of both approaches, such as efficient power demands and good terrain traversability. However, the simplicity of the design of the rimless wheel has the disadvantage of li…

Robot state estimation using Synthetic RGB images

from: Vasantakumaar, Naren  (Universität Bremen)
The aim of this thesis is to use a camera as a cost-effective alternative to the expensive retrofitting of sensors for state estimation of the manipulator. Determining the state of robot joints from images has always been a challenge in the field of computer vision and robotics. Thus, determining th…

Online Terrain Traversability Estimation for Wheel-Legged Rover Exploration

from: Yogeshkarna Govindaraj  (Hochschule Bonn-Rhein-Sieg)
In robotics, traversability, the ability of a robot to navigate challenging terrains, remains a significant challenge due to limitations in design, perception, and computation. The hybrid wheel-legged design, exemplified by the SherpaTT rover, offers enhanced mobility in unstructured terrain. Curren…

Unified model for Grasp stability estimation

from: Prithvi Sanghamreddy  (Universität Bremen)
Grasp stability is one of the main concerns in the field of robotics, as it directly impacts the effectiveness and safety of robotic manipulation tasks. Grasping an object and evaluating the grasp is an important task when we use robotic hands. Establishing robotic hands that can securely hold and m…

A specific field of application for resident Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) is in under-ice environments, both on the terrestrial and extra-terrestrial settings. In such environments, the underwater docking process is a critical aspect as this allows AUV to return for charging, data transmiss…

Exposé
Dynamic legged locomotion is a challenging control task in modern robotics, as the body is underactuated during many gaits and the contact forces of the feet are constraint due to motor limits and friction forces. A modern approach to tackle these challenges is Model Predictive Control (MPC) where t…
