In the recent past, the visibility problem in vision-based control has been widely investigated. The proposed solutions generally have a common goal: to always keep the object in the camera's field of view during the visual servoing. Contrary to this solution, we propose a new approach based on the concept of allowing the changes of visibility in image… (More)
This chapter introduces the main topics of a telerobotic system. It describes the architecture of such a system from a general point of view and emphasizes the interaction between a human operator and a robot that performs the task in the remote environment. Furthermore it focuses on multi-modal human system interfaces and explains the main features of… (More)
In this paper is presented a Distance Laboratory System (DLS), which is a distance laboratory focused in automatic control study developed in Universidad CentraìMarta Abreu' de las Villas. The main objective of this laboratory is to permit the users to learn to adjust predefined controllers and to design their own controllers for testing them later over a… (More)
This article presents the promising applications that can be obtained from parallel robots for climbing. It explores the most important aspects of the mechanical design and control of climbing parallel robots (CPRs) based on the Stewart-Gough's (S-G) platform for tasks in tubular or metallic structures.
—This paper proposes a novel application of the Stewart–Gough parallel platform as a climbing robot and its kine-matics control to climb through long structures describing unknown spatial trajectories, such as palm trunks, tubes, etc. First, the description and design of the climbing parallel robot is presented. Second, the inverse and forward kinematics… (More)
This article focuses on the use of stereoscopic video interfaces for telerobotics. Topics concerning human visual perception, binocular image capturing, and stereoscopic devices are described. There is a wide variety of video interfaces for telerobotic systems. Choosing the best video interface depends on the telerobotic application requirements. Simple… (More)
This paper describes the experiences using remote laboratories for education and research in the field of Control Engineering. The use of remote laboratories for education in subjects of control is increasingly becoming a resorted method by the universities in order to offer a flexible service in schedules with greater and better operation of available… (More)
