This paper addresses the effect of internal vibration modes on the stability boundary for haptic rendering. A linear model that includes two vibration modes has been used to characterize one degree-of-freedom of the PHANToM 1.0 haptic interface, and predict the maximum achievable impedances for haptic rendering. The theoretical and experimental results show(More)
In this paper, the state of the art in force feedback haptic devices is presented. The importance of the current searching for better immersion characteristics has motivated an interesting research in advanced control strategies. The passive, optimal, adaptive and robust control strategies applied in the last two years to haptic devices have improved the(More)
Flexible production systems represents the future of manufacturing processes in Europe. Small batches of products and adaptation of the line to variants or new products is in the European view of the 2020 manufacturing. This new paradigm requires a novel approach where many advances in the theory have been made and laboratory prototype implementations have(More)
This paper presents a state machine-based architecture, which enhances the flexibility and reusability of industrial robots, more concretely dual-arm multisensor robots. The proposed architecture, in addition to allowing absolute control of the execution, eases the programming of new applications by increasing the reusability of the developed modules.(More)
