An arm exoskeleton system for teleoperation and virtual environments applications
The control of exploratory and manipulative procedures in teleoperation and virtual environments requires the availability of adequate advanced interfaces capable not only of recording the movements of the human hands and arms, but also of replicating sensations of contact and collisions. Expand

Study on a mechatronic tool for drilling in the osteosynthesis of long bones: Tool/bone interaction, modeling and experiments
Among the few motorized procedures used in orthopaedic surgery, drilling is surely the most common. Current drilling tools do not include any means for the control of the penetration and onlyExpand

Image-based visual servoing of nonholonomic mobile robots
In this paper, a novel image-based visual approach for the position control of a nonholonomic mobile robot is presented, which uses a discontinuous change of coordinates, ensures global stability of the closed-loop visual system. Expand

Development of an innovative wheel–rail contact model for the analysis of degraded adhesion in railway systems
Abstract A detailed description of adhesion is crucial in tribology, vehicle dynamics and railway systems, both theoretically and practically. However, an accurate adhesion model is quite hard toExpand
