— This paper presents a throwing motion planner based on a goal manifold for two-point boundary value problem. The article outlines algorithmic and geometric issues for planar throwing of rigid objects with a nonprehensile end-effector. Special attention is paid to the challenge of controlling a desired 6-dimensional state of the object with a planar 3-DoF(More)
— Catching is one of the most complex tasks in the area of dynamic manipulation. Exact information on the position and orientation of a rigid object is crucial in order to accomplish manipulation tasks. Both motion planner and control strategy use these data to achieve the desired contact of a predefined surface with a nonprehensile end-effector, e.g. flat(More)
— This paper presents a new device and a method for dynamic manipulation. The device consists of a planar robotic arm and an elastic beam as an end-effector. Using it the elastic end-effector will tend to increase performance and energy efficiency while executing dynamic and repetitive tasks. Through the control of the beam vibration and resonant modes, we(More)
