This paper presents a humanoid servomotor model that can be used in simulations. Once simulation is a tool that reduces the software production time, it was developed a realistic simulator that own the humanoid features. Based on a real platform, the simulator is validated when compared with the reality.
This article describes a very low cost terrestrial Mobile Mapping System (MMS) that was developed at the University of Porto. It incorporates a direct geo-referencing system with a single frequency GPS receiver board and the remote sensors are two progressive CCD colour video cameras with 640x480 resolution. Alternatively the system was used with a direct… (More)
At the present time there is a high pressure toward the improvement of all the production processes. Those improvements can be sensed in several directions in particular those that involve energy efficiency. The definition of tight energy efficiency improvement policies is transversal to several operational areas ranging from industry to public services. As… (More)
This paper describes a joint trajectory optimized controller for a humanoid robot simulator following the real robot characteristics. As simulation is a powerful tool for speeding up the control software development, the proposed accurate simulator allows to fulfil this goal. The simulator, based on the open dynamics engine and GLScene graphics library,… (More)
