Up to 20 percent of the German sewerage systems are damaged mainly due to their high age. The estimation for the restoration costs is about 100 billions DM. As a consequence the German Government has issued comparably harsh environmental laws enforcing the owner of a sewerage system to check regularity its state by means of suitable inspection technology.(More)
The automation of complex industrial batch processes is a difficult problem due to the extremely nonlinear and variable system behavior or the conflicting goals within the different process phases. The introduction of a single multiple-input multiple-output controller (e.g. fuzzy logic (FL) controller) is not useful because of the rather high design effort(More)
Different approaches of a learnable Fuzzy-Logic (FL) concept for highly fast and accurate position control of industrial robots will be presented which provides both time-optimality for large position errors as well as well damped response (no overshoot) near the target. For automatic optimization of the control parameters an additional Neural-Network(More)
This paper presents an efficient approach for the combined audio-visual localization of a fallen object. The localization algorithm is incorporated into a multi-sensor robotic platform to supervise and to adapt dynamically the discrete plan of a robot performing a pick-and-place task. Initial audio position estimates of the fallen object are delivered by(More)
Fast and accurate robot based machining, finishing or cleaning of surfaces of geometrically complex manufacturing parts requires the introduction of flexible sensor based automation concepts. The industrial robots currently available on the market can not comply with such advanced requirements. In this paper a new concept for managing such challenging robot(More)
Within the next years a new generation of humanoid robots able to manage autonomously sophisticated tasks in a complex, time varying domestic and public environment is going to be developed. To cope with these advanced requirements a new multi-sensor based discrete- continuous supervisory control concept is proposed, which is able to accomplish even complex(More)
