This paper describes a robotic agency that has been conceived and studied to solve a real task: the goal is the cleaning of all the surfaces of restaurants, community kitchen and food preparation industrial environments. The cleaning system is composed of heterogeneous agents from three categories specifically oriented to: wall cleaning by low skilled… (More)
The peg-in-hole insertion is a problem that has been extensively examined in the scientific literature. It represents a generic assembly process of two parts mated by peg-hole couplings. The PMAR Lab group is building the prototype of an innovative high-speed parallel robot for force-controlled applications. Its three-degree-of-freedom architecture is… (More)
The paper presents a service robot for health monitoring and localized chemical, drugs and fertilisers dispensing to plants in greenhouses. The robot and its end-effectors have been conceived and designed specifically oriented to the served environment and tasks. A virtual prototype has been realized.
