This paper presents the design of a novel robot capable of climbing on vertical and rough surfaces, such as stucco walls. Termed CLIBO (claw inspired robot), the robot can remain in position for a long period of time. Such a capability offers important civilian and military advantages such as surveillance, observation, search and rescue and even for(More)
— This work proposes an algorithm for designing a simple End Effector configuration for a robotic arm which is able to grasp a given set of objects. The algorithm searches for a common 3-finger grasp over a set of objects. The search algorithm maps all possible grasps for each object which satisfy a quality criterion and takes into account an external(More)
— The work presented in this paper proposes a new method for time based motion planning of a dynamic system to reach a dynamical goal within a specified time. The method enables trajectory planning based on the dynamics of the system with time constraint. Moreover, this method allows rendezvous planning of two dynamic systems where only one is controlled.(More)
— A novel algorithm is proposed for offline motion planning of a robotic arm to perform a throw task of an object to reach a goal target. The planning algorithm searches for a throw trajectory that could be performed under kinematic and dynamic (i.e., kinodynamic) constraints. We parameterize the throw trajectory by a time-invariant high-dimensional vector.(More)
