This paper is an overview of the work being performed by the ISO committee TC184/SC2 " Robots and Ro-botic Devices ". SC2 is developing safety standards for ro-botic applications in personal and medical care, as well as revising existing industrial robot standards with requirements for new applications. A key driver of the new standards is the need for… (More)
Industrial processes are subjected to variation in parameters and parameter perturbations, which when significant makes the system unstable. In order to overco me this problem of parameter variat ion the PI controllers are widely used in industrial plants because it is simple and robust. However there is a prob lem in tuning PI parameters. So the control… (More)
This paper focuses on the activities of one of the two main thematic groups in Europe that are involved in robotics. Called the CLAWAR (Climbing and Walking Robots) Project, this robotics thematic network was established in 1998 with the aim of addressing the immediate needs of the robotics research and development community.
This paper presents the activities of the CLAWAR TN project to identify the status for the area of applied robotics and how the traditional robotics industry can evolve to meet the wider needs of industry, society and citizens of the future. The modular philosophy that has been developed by the CLAWAR partnership using the concept of the interaction space… (More)
The paper considers three important issues in the design and utilisation of teleoperated urban search and rescue robot systems, namely localisation, locomotion and human-robot interfaces. Prototype systems are designed, developed and presented. For the localisation aspects a cost effective infrared beacon based system is presented for 2D applications. For… (More)
