An approach for achieving reliable, built-in, high-accuracy force sensing for legged robots is presented, based on direct exploitation of the properties of a robot's mechanical structure. The proposed methodology relies on taking account of force-sensing requirements at the robot design stage, with a view to embedding force-sensing capability within the(More)
8 SUMMARY 9 This paper proposes a novel design of a reconfigurable Q2 Q3 10 humanoid robot head, based on biological likeness of 11 human being so that the humanoid robot could agreeably 12 interact with people in various everyday tasks. The proposed 13 humanoid head has a modular and adaptive structural design 14 and is equipped with three main components:(More)
The goal of this paper is to present a complete Quality Of Service (QoS) framework for the Radio Resource Management (RRM) able to provide guaranteed bitrate (GBR) services, when they are transmitted over shared channels in a Enhanced General Packet Radio Service (EGPRS) network. This QoS scheme is composed by an Admission Control (AC) and a Channel(More)
—Feet–ground interactions influence the legged robot's stability. In this paper, a high-resolution indirect force measurement for hydraulic-legged robots is presented. The use of pressure transducers placed at one or both chambers of the robot's double-effect hydraulic actuators is investigated, and conclusions are drawn regarding their capability for(More)
