Biped robots form a subclass of legged or walking robots. The study of mechanical legged motion has been motivated by its potential use as a means of locomotion in rough terrain, as well as its potential benefits to prothesis development and testing. This paper concentrates on issues related to the automatic control of biped robots. More precisely, its(More)
The objective is to control a web transport system with winder and unwinder for elastic material. A physical modeling of this plant is made based on the general laws of physics. For this type of control problem, it is extremely important to prevent the occurrence of web break or fold by decoupling the web tension and the web velocity. Due to the wide-range(More)
A helicopter maneuvers naturally in an environment where the execution of the task can easily be affected by atmospheric turbulence, which leads to variations of its model parameters. This paper discusses the nature of the disturbances acting on the helicopter and proposes an approach to counter the effects. The disturbance consists of vertical and lateral(More)
In this paper, we present a method for robots modeling called “bidirectional dynamic modeling”. This new method takes into account the gear efficiency and the direction of power transmission in the gears. Epicyclic gearboxes have often different efficiencies in the two directions of power transmission. The characteristics of the chain of transmission must(More)
Nowadays, high levels of agility, maneuverability and capability of operating in reduced visual environments and adverse weather conditions are the new trends of helicopter design. Helicopter flight control systems should make these performance requirements achievable by improving tracking performance and disturbance rejection capability. Robustness is one(More)
This paper presents a new way t o model visual servoing in the case of a 6 DOF industrial manipulator. The manipulator with i ts actuators (DC motors), their current feedback loops and their velocity control loops, is modeled as a “virtual Cartesian device”. T h e system with i ts visual feedback loop i s decoupled to form 6 independent loops. Then, 6(More)
