A Survey of Wall Climbing Robots: Recent Advances and Challenges
A detailed review of wall climbing robots categorizing them into six distinct classes based on the adhesive mechanism that they use is presented, expanding beyond adhesive mechanisms by discussing a set of desirable design attributes of an ideal glass facade cleaning robot.
Toward a framework for robot-inclusive environments
Abstract Robots are capable of navigating and performing tasks in a wide range of environments. Yet, there is no systematic research on the relationship between robot and environments. In this paper,
Complete coverage path planning using reinforcement learning for Tetromino based cleaning and maintenance robot
A complete coverage path planning model trained using deep blackreinforcement learning (RL) for the tetromino based reconfigurable robot platform called hTetro to simultaneously generate the optimal set of shapes for any pretrained arbitrary environment shape with a trajectory that has the least overall cost.
Experimenting extended neglect tolerance model for human robot interactions in service missions
The results showed that the former offers better estimates of robot performance and attention demands, due to the inclusion of false alarms into the model, than the traditionally adopted neglect tolerance model.
Design and modelling of a modular window cleaning robot
This work attempts to extend the locomotion capabilities of a modular window facades cleaning robot, called Mantis, by implementing the inductive sensors to detect the metallic frame for autonomous crossover.
Robot-Assisted Therapy for Learning and Social Interaction of Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder
The potential for designing a parrot-inspired robot and an indirect teaching technique, the adapted model-rival method (AMRM), to help improve learning and social interaction abilities of children with autism spectrum disorder is put forward.
A Modular Architecture for Humanoid Soccer Robots with Distributed Behavior Control
An embedded control architecture constructed for Robo-Erectus, a soccer-playing humanoid robot developed at the Advanced Robotics and Intelligent Control Centre of Singapore Polytechnic, is presented.
Teaching new tricks to a robot learning to solve a task by imitation
This paper presents an approach for learning by imitation based on two functional elements used by humans to understand and perform actions, one is the representation of the body that contains information of thebody's capabilities and the other one is a snapshot of theBody and its relation with the environment at a given instant.
Teaching CAD/CAM Workflows to Nascent Designers
The following paper presents a suite of custom software environments that make advanced techniques in digital fabrication ac- cessible to novice, first-year designers. The collective design aides fa-
A symphony of designiettes exploring the boundaries of design thinking in engineering education
In this paper, we consider the integration of design into engineering curricula from the perspective of designiettes. Designiettes are glimpses, snapshots, small-scale, short turnaround and
