This paper describes a parallel controller that was developed at the Center for Intelligent Systems at Vanderbilt University to control a manipulator with exible joints. The joints are actuated with muscle-like actuators called rubbertuators which exhibit nonlinear behavior. The paper presents the diierent control techniques that were used to control the(More)
— Analyzing the performance and power of Mobile Internet Devices (MID) is important for academia and industry as well as for consumers. It is important to assess the performance associated with a typical workload on MIDs so that applications and hardware can be optimized to reduce performance bottlenecks. In this paper, we present TMAPP, a benchmark(More)
This paper describes a transputer-based parallel controller that was developed in the Center for Intelligent Systems at Vanderbilt University to control the Soft Arm robot. The Soft Arm robot is used in a robotic aid system, called ISAC, for the physically challenged. The controller uses a network of T800 transputers as the parallel processing nodes. The(More)
