The IEEE RAS Ontologies for Robotics and Automation Working Group is dedicated to developing a methodology for knowledge representation and reasoning in robotics and automation. As part of this working group, the Autonomous Robots sub-group is tasked with developing ontology modules for autonomous robots. This paper describes the work in progress on the(More)
• We present the ongoing work towards a core ontology dedicated to the field of robotics and automation. • We describe the role of ontologies in robotics at large. • We provide a thorough review of service robot ontologies. • We describe the existing standards for robots, along with the future trends in the domain. • We define the current issues and(More)
As more engineering operations become automatic, the need for robustness towards faults increases. Hence, a fault tolerant control (FTC) scheme is a valuable asset. This paper presents a robust sensor fault FTC scheme implemented on a flexible arm manipulator, which has many applications in automation. Sensor faults affect the system's performance in the(More)
