This paper deals with the subject of visual control of a hyper-redundant robot. This type of arm changes its configuration by bending a continuous backbone formed of sections connected in a serial configuration. Such tentacle arm has a variable length and theoretically it can achieve any position and orientation in the 3D space. A tentacle arm prototype was(More)
A continuum arm prototype was designed and implemented using two different shapes: cylinder like and cone like. This new robot is actuated by stepper motors. The rotation of these motors rotates the cables which by correlated screwing and unscrewing of their ends determine their shortening or prolonging, and by consequence, the tentacle curvature. The(More)
This paper deals with the control problem, simulation and implementation, for a class of hyper redundant manipulators – a tronconic tentacle arms. A tentacle robot produces changes of configuration using a continuous backbone made of sections which bend. A tentacle arm has a variable length and theoretically it can achieve any position and(More)
