— The free and open source Tele-Operation Platform of the MPI for Biological Cybernetics (TeleKyb) is an end-to-end software framework for the development of bilateral teleoperation systems between human interfaces (e.g., haptic force feedback devices or gamepads) and groups of quadrotor Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). Among drivers for devices and robots(More)
In this paper we propose and experimentally validate a bilateral teleoperation framework where a group of UAVs are controlled over an unreliable network with typical intercontinental time delays and packet losses. This setting is meant to represent a realistic and challenging situation for the stability the bilateral closed-loop system. In order to increase(More)
In this notes we briefly review two software frameworks that have been developed within the Autonomous Robotics and Human-machine Systems group (formerly, Human-Robot Interaction group) at the Max Plank Institute for Biological Cybernetics. Both frameworks, starting from the early versions up to the most recent releases, have been successfully employed in(More)
We propose in this contribution a method for l1-regularization in prototype based relevance learning vector quantization (LVQ) for sparse relevance proles. Sparse relevance proles in hyperspectral data analysis fade down those spectral bands which are not necessary for classication. In particular, we consider the sparsity in the relevance prole enforced by(More)
This work proposes direction-dependent Jacobian indices that allow tackling the performance evaluation and dimensional synthesis of parallel manipulators. These indices characterize the kinetostatic capabilities of a manipulator along and about each direction of the Cartesian space and are more likely to help the designer to achieve an assessment of(More)
