Autonomous micro-rovers offer a cost-effective approach for exploring lunar lava tubes and play an essential role in on-site operations. However, lunar rovers encounter significant challenges, including prolonged darkness and constrained resources. These constraints encompass factors such as process…

Kinetostatic Analysis of a 6-RUS Parallel Continuum Robot

from: Vinayvivian Pedrick Rodrigues  (RWTH Aachen)
Continuum manipulators have historically been considered serial devices, perhaps because they typically have a long slender form, and the dominant geometric modeling paradigm is constant curvature arc segments tangentially connected in series. However, as some researchers have noted, many continuum …

Cartesium Rotunde
The project Europa Explorer (EurEx) of the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence is developing systems for future exploration missions to the Jovian moon Europa at an early stage. EurEx aims to provide the systems or parts of them for real missions in the future. One of those systems is…

Reliable recognition of people's gestures and mimics is crucial to a natural and intuitive interaction between robots (machines) and humans. Voice Activity Detection (VAD) may play a major role in this context. VAD algorithms detect if the person of interest is currently speaking or not. This can be…

Visual Voice Activity Detection (V-VAD) is the task to determine whether a person is speaking, based on images or video footage. It is a central point in Human Computer Interaction, as it is one of the first signals that can indicate that a human is interacting with a computer. Two new big datasets…

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…

Zwischenbericht
As legged locomotion in nature is very dynamic and rich, this elegant form of locomotion should also be exploited by robots to enable efficient and unrestricted locomotion even on difficult terrain. As a contribution to those efforts, work is to be conducted on the robotic system of a hopping leg on…

Mechatronic Design and Control of an Underactuated Three-link Brachiation Robot

from: Grama Srinivas Shourie  (École Centrale de Nantes, Nantes, France)
Brachiation is a way of moving from place to place by swinging between branches of trees, employed by monkeys (mostly gibbons), using only their arms. During brachiation, if the next branch is far away such that the gibbon is expected to have a dynamic free flight phase in its motion, this fast moti…
