This paper provides a prototype of an intelligent robotic walking assistance system named Walkmate with force sensor interface and a motion control algorithm for it. Our human-machine interface with the force sensors embedded in handlebars offers a nature negative feedback loop of the motion control.
A more suitable motion planning method for an omni-directional mobile robot (OMR), an improved APF method (iAPF), is proposed in this paper by introducing the revolving factor into the artificial potential field (APF). Accordingly, the motion direction derived from traditional artificial potential field (tAPF) is regulated. The maximum velocity, maximum… (More)
The kinematic modeling of an omnidirectional mobile robot is introduced, of which the arrangement of the omnidirectional wheels is arbitrary. With the particular structure of omnidirectional wheel, the kinematic performance is distinct while the robot moves in different direction, which is called anisotropy. The rule about the relationship between the… (More)
Robot and neuroscience technology based on computational and engineering approaches, which has been successfully applied to a wide variety of fields such as medicine, provides giant opportunities for the advancement of human-computer interface's application to promote the medical research, improve the quality of life, and enhance the patient's safety.… (More)
The smart manufacturing program is gaining more and more research interests. To meet the requirements of increasingly low-volume, time-critical tasks, the traditional program-by-teaching methods should be replaced by more flexible and intelligent manufacturing processes. In this paper, we introduce the efforts of deploying ubiquitous robotic technology to… (More)
In order to provide the research foundation for future exploration of the unknown world, a mars rover prototype is developed for studying the related technologies. In this study the development of a mars rover prototype with mapping and localization system is presented. At first, the architecture of the mars rover is designed to meet the motion requirement… (More)
To deal with the sudden motor failure during the match, the method of fault tolerant control on omnidirectional soccer robot will be introduced in this article. First of all, the kinematics model of two-wheeled differential driving robot and omnidirectional robot will be given. Then kinematics model of omnidirectional robot with a motor failure will be… (More)
