Air-bearing-based platforms are used to simulate microgravity on earth. Therefore, these platforms can be used to test for example Active Space Debris Removal (ASDR) maneuvers. European Space Agency’s Orbital Robotics and GNC Lab (ORGL) features a 5m ⇥ 9m flat floor. A 130 kg heavy air-bearing platf…

Imaging sonar is commonly used in underwater detection tasks, as it can provide acoustic imaging of underwater environments in low or zero visibility conditions where optical sensors fail. The forward-looking sonar (FLS) is commonly used for monitoring tasks due to its capability of providing an aco…

Exposé
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…

The Europa Explorar LUNa project is developing an exploration mission to Jupiter's moon Europa. The objective is to explore the 100 km deep ocean beneath a 20 km thick layer of ice. For this purpose, the Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) DeepLeng must be transported through the ice. In the thesis,…

Robust Co-design for Underactuated Systems

from: Federico Girlanda  (University of Padua)
Optimal behaviours of a system to perform a specific task can be achieved by exploiting the coupling between trajectory optimization, stabilization and design optimization. The main objective of this thesis work is to analyze a novel co-optimization approach, which aims to improve the optimization r…

Ambient Air Pollution Prediction

from: Hannes Gelbhardt  (Universität Bremen)
Ambient air pollution is well known to affect humans and the environment severely. Some primary sources of air pollution are industrial processes, motorized traffic, wildfires, and volcanic activities. Estimating future air pollution concentrations can lower the effects on humans and the environment…

Zwischenbericht
The importance of legged robots is emphasized, as legged robot locomotion allows highly precise performance and wide spectrum of application, even in rough, unstructured terrain. However, the present challenges in legged robot locomotion are the trade-off between versatility and robustness, and the …

Bei der Entwicklung von Exoskeletten stellt die Konstruktion der mechanischen Interfaces - also der Anbindungen zwischen Person und System - eine besondere Herausforderung dar. Für eine präzise Kraftübertragung müssen Relativbewegungen zwischen Person und Exoskelett möglichst unterbunden werden. Gle…
