A Novel Anthropomorphic Robot Hand and its Master Slave System InTech
Tetsuya Mouri; Haruhisa Kawasaki.
We have presented the newly developed anthropomorphic robot hand named the KH Hand type S and its master slave system using the bilateral controller. The use of an elastic body has improved the robot hand in terms of weight, the backlash of the transmission, and friction between the gears. We have demonstrated the expression of the Japanese finger alphabet. We have also shown an experiment of a peg-in-hole task controlled by the bilateral controller. These results indicate that the KH Hand type S has a higher potential than previous robot hands in performing not only hand shape display tasks but also in grasping and manipulating objects in a manner like that of the human hand. In our future work, we are planning to study dexterous grasping and manipulation...

A Novel Omnidirectional Stereo Vision System via a Single Camera InTech
Chuanjiang Luo; Liancheng Su; Feng Zhu.
We have developed a complete framework of automatically generating omnidirectional depth maps around a mobile robot using a novel designed panoramic vision sensor. Compared to previous vision systems, our system has such significant advantages as its geometry calculating easy and fast and simultaneous acquisition of precise range information without high cost or system complexity. And as the separation between the two hyperbolic mirrors provides a large baseline, the range information obtained from this method has much improved precision. We have proposed an imaging model for

Achieving Illumination Invariance Using Image Filters InTech
Ognjen Arandjelovic; Roberto Cipolla.
In this chapter we described a novel framework for automatic face recognition in the presence of varying illumination, primarily applicable to matching face sets or sequences. The framework is based on simple image processing filters that compete with unprocessed greyscale input to yield a single matching score between individuals. By performing all numerically consuming computation offline, our method both (i) retains the matching efficiency of simple image filters, but (ii) with a greatly increased robustness, as all online processing is performed in closed-form. Evaluated on a large, real-world data corpus, the proposed framework was shown to be successful in video-based recognition across a wide range of illumination, pose and face motion pattern...

An Adaptive Penalty Method for Genetic Algorithms in Constrained Optimization Problems InTech
Helio J. C. Barbosa; Afonso C. C. Lemonge.
From the experiments performed here one can see that the original APM found more often the best solutions. Among the new variants, the variants 3 and 5 were the most successful. As the performance of variant 4 was slightly inferior to that of variants 3 and 5, one may suspect that the inclusion of the damping procedure was not advantageous. A more important conclusion may be that there were not large discrepancies among the results obtained by the original APM and the four new variants, which provide computational savings, and that robust variants can be obtained from the overall family of adaptive penalty methods considered here.

Attitude and Steering Control of the Long Articulated Body Mobile Robot KORYU InTech
Edwardo F. Fukushima; Shigeo Hirose.
The authors have designed and actually built a mechanical prototype of a class of articulated body mobile robots, 3.3m long, and mass of more than 400kg, called KR-II. Attitude control and steering control has been successfully implemented, and the robot can move stably in the outdoors, even on uneven terrain. The presented steering control method is based on parameter representation for describing trajectories in an inertial reference frame, with travelled distance as a parameter. In doing so, the position of each element (in the case of the articulated body mobile robot KR-II, segment center positions) on the trajectory can be tracked by simple and effective numerical searching algorithms. For the real robot KR-II, the introduced method demonstrated good...

Biomechanical Constraints in the Design of Robotic Systems for Tremor Suppression InTech
Juan-Manuel Belda-Lois; Alvaro Page; Jose-Maria Baydal-Bertomeu Rakel Poveda; Ricard Barbera.
Tremor suppression with robotic devices can be an alternative for people with pathological tremor resistant to conventional treatments. Common orthotic principles don't fit well for tremor suppression due to the inherent dynamic characteristics of tremor. In the design of robotic systems for tremor suppression the correct design of load transmission to the bones through the soft tissues is one of the key aspects for successful performance. We have summarised the design specifications into three guidelines: a) Length restriction to avoid the low stiffness associated in the shear plane. b) Increase of contact pressure to increase contact stiffness. c) Increase of the number of contact points to keep the alignments between the orthosis and the body segment.

Biped without Feet in Single Support: Stabilization of the Vertical Posture with Internal Torques InTech
Formalsky Alexander; Aoustin Yannick.
We defined here control strategies to stabilize the equilibrium vertical posture of a two-link, a three-link and a five-link biped, explicitly taking into account the limits imposed on the amplitudes of the control torques. For each biped we use the Jordan form of its linear model to extract the unstable modes that we want to suppress with the feedback control. For the two-link biped, the control law is optimal. This means that the basin of attraction for its linear system is as large as possible, i.e., it coincides with the controllability domain. For the five-link biped several choices of torques are allowable because we have four torques and three unstable modes. Therefore, we define a criteria to compute these torques. All the numerical results in this...

Dynamic Parameter Identification for Parallel Manipulators InTech
Vicente Mata; Nidal Farhat; Miguel Diaz-Rodriguez; Angel Valera; Alvaro Page.
In this chapter, the problem of the identification of inertia and friction parameters for parallel manipulators was addressed. In the first part of the chapter an overview of the identification process applied to parallel manipulators was presented. First, the dynamic model was obtained in a systematic way starting from the Gibbs-Appell equations of motion. This dynamic model was reduced to a subset of parameters called base parameters by means of SVD. After that and to ensure the minimal input/output error transmissibility, approaches to obtaining optimized trajectories that have to be used in the identification process were presented. In the second part of the chapter, a direct identification approach was implemented on a 3-DOF RPS parallel manipulator...

Dynamics and Control for Nonholonomic Mobile Modular Manipulators InTech
Yangmin Li; Yugang Liu.
In this chapter, 3-wheeled nonholonomic mobile modular manipulators are investigated. First, an integrated modelling method is proposed in consideration of the nonholonomic constraints and the interactive motions. Second, a model based controller and a robust adaptive controller are presented in task space directly. Third, simulations are carried out on a mobile modular manipulator composed of a 3-wheeled mobile platform and a 4-DOF onboard modular manipulator, and the simulation results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed algorithms. The proposed algorithms can be easily extended to some other mobile manipulators as well.

Gait Transition from Quadrupedal to Bipedal Locomotion of an Oscillator-driven Biped Robot InTech
Shinya Aoi; Kazuo Tsuchiya.
Kinematical and dynamical studies on biped robots are important for robot control. As described above, although model-based approaches using inverse kinematics and kinetics have generally been used, the difficulty of establishing adaptability to various environments as well as complicated computations has often been pointed out. In this paper, we employed an internal structure composed of nonlinear oscillators that generated robot kinematics and adequately responded based on environmental situations and achieved dynamically stable quadrupedal and bipedal locomotion and their transition in a biped robot. Specifically, we generated robot kinematical motions using rhythmic signals from internal oscillators. The oscillators appropriately responded to sensory...

Integration Method of Ant Colony Algorithm and Rough Set Theory for Simultaneous Real Value Attribute Discretization and Attribute Reduction InTech
Yijun He; Dezhao Chen; Weixiang Zhao.
In this study, ant colony algorithm is proposed for simultaneous real value attributes discretization and reduction. Based on the concept of distinction table in rough set theory, the relationship between discretization and reduction is discussed, and these two different problems can be integrated into a unified framework. Moreover, the relationship between this unified framework and set covering problem is analyzed. The detailed strategy for ant colony algorithm to solve this problem is proposed and applied to the four datasets. The obtained results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method, showing the better performance than those of the other three rough set theory based heuristic methods. However, this is a preliminary study, because we...

Joint Torque Sensory in Robotics InTech
Farhad Aghili.
Motivated by the need for accurate joint torque sensing in robots, we designed a new torque sensor, based on the hollow hexaform geometry. Its key features were its extremely high sti ness and its insensitivity to the set of support forces and moments which persist in a robot joint. These features permit to mount the sensor directly in the joints of a robot manipulator leading to accurate joint torque sensing and to a compact and modular design. The structure of the sensor also exhibits strain concentration to torsion loads which maximizes the sensitivity to torsion without sacrificing torsional sti ness. Other design issues such as practical shape consideration, material properties and overloading also considered. The sensor geometry was analyzed and...

Modelling and Analysis of Real-Time Systems with RTCP-Nets InTech
Marcin Szpyrka.
RTCP-nets are an adaptation of CP-nets to make modelling and verification of embedded systems easier and more efficient. Based upon the experience with application of CP-nets for embedded systems' modelling, some modifications were introduced in order to make timed CP-nets more suitable for this purpose. The main advantage of the presented formalism is the new time model. Together with transitions' priorities, the time model enable designers direct modelling of task priorities, timeouts, etc. that are typical for concurrent programming. The next advantage of RTCP-nets is the possibility of analysis of model properties with coverability graphs. Timed CP-nets can be also used to model embedded systems. A few different analysis methods have been proposed for...
