—Omni-directional mobile platforms have the ability to move instantaneously in any direction from any configuration. As such, it is important to have a mathematical model of the platform, especially if the platform is to be used as an autonomous vehicle. Autonomous behaviour requires that the mobile robot choose the optimum vehicle motion in different(More)
The demand for high speed robotic manipulators with little or no vibrations has been a challenging research problem. In this paper, a position control for a 2 DOF single link flexible manipulator with joint elasticity is studied. It is shown that using the flatness control approach, faster response and less oscillations and overshoots can be achieved. The(More)

Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping (SLAM) is a process by which a mobile robot maps the environment and concurrently localises itself within the map. Feature extraction is a technique by which sensor data is processed to obtain well defined entities (features) which are recognisable and can be repeatedly detected. These features are then used to aid(More)
