Modular Spacecraft Standard Interconnect Benchmark

from: Jona Saffer  (Technische Hochschule Nürnberg)
To reduce the cost and effort of space missions, the space industry is exploring concepts for in orbit assembly and maintenance. As these activities are carried out by robotic manipulators, the used spacecraft have to be comprised of suitable modules. For theses modules to be usable across multiple …

Unmanned surface vehicles (USVs) are boats that can navigate on the water surface without the need for a human operator on board. Since there are many disturbances and nonlinear effects due to the hydrodynamics of water, there is a need for robust motion control systems. Reinforcement learning provi…

The utilization of resources as well as scientific research for a human outpost has shifted the spotlight back to earth’s natural satellite, the moon. Many of these endeavors require the exploration and analysis of the lunar surface. Miniaturized unmanned autonomous systems are particularly suitable…

Mechatronic Design and Control of an Underactuated Brachiation Robot

from: Mahdi Javadi  (Universität Kaiserslautern)
Brachiation is a maneuver unique to monkeys and apes, moving from one branch to another by switching arms. This dynamic motion takes place in the air with a pendulum swing style using gravity and does not have the complexity of ground obstacles. However, navigation in the unstructured environmen…

Abstract: Mit der voranschreitenden Erkundung des Weltalls wird der Bedarf für On Orbit Servicing (OOS)- und In Space Manufacturing and Assembly (ISMA)- Anwendungen immer größer. Für die Wartung bestehender Satelliten oder die Integration größerer Strukturen im Orbit sind Manipulationsfähigkeiten e…

Development of 3D printed fingerprint for robotic hands and grippers

from: Oscar Alberto JUIÑA QUILACHAMIN  (Hochschule Karlsruhe)
Texture and shape recognition implementing haptic sensors are widely explored in robotics. There are various technologies haptic sensors use, such as vibrations, force feedback, air vortex rings, and ultrasound. However, the implementation of this kind of sensor may be limited, especially in robotic…

Exposé
DFKI is setting up a motor test bench to characterize the robotic drives developed in-house. The measurement can be influenced by torsional vibrations and alignment errors. Therefore, it is necessary to analyze the setup mechanically to minimize the measurement errors. For this purpose, the natural …

Untersuchung von Symmetrien in 6D Posenschätzungsmodellen

from: Fabian Stern  (Universität Bremen)
To carry out robotic tasks in the real world it is often required to know the 6D pose of an object. A big hurdle here is that the pose might be ambiguous because some objects are or appear symmetric. There is already a great variety of existing models for pose estimation with very diverse approaches…

Zwischenbericht
Brachiation is a form of locomotion special for monkeys and gibbons, swinging from one handhold to other using arms. The thesis aims to address the mechatronic design and optimal locomotion of a brachiation-type robot and the system is designed as an underactuated system with fewer actuated joints t…
