This paper is an overview of the work being performed by the ISO committee TC184/SC2 “Robots and Robotic Devices”. SC2 is developing safety standards for robotic 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 safety(More)
Biological systems are known to be remarkably adaptive in coping with ever-changing environmental circumstances. Adaptive performance can be observed in many different types of skilled behavior but theoretical understanding of these adaptive skills is a great challenge for scientists. Even the simplest and more readily observable skills such as sensorimotor(More)
This paper presents the EC funded Climbing and walking robotics project and its activities to encourage the development of a common framework to assist researchers and companies to focus at the component level to make the required innovations. An open modular philosophy is felt to be needed to allow the robotics technology to evolve so that the wide and(More)
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)
Industrial processes are subjected to variation in parameters and parameter perturbations, which when significant makes the system unstable. In order to overcome 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)
