This paper presents an on-line tracking optimization scheme for sensor guided robotic manipulators by associating sensor information, manipulator dynamics and a path generator model. Feedback linearization-decoupling permits the use of linear SISO prediction models for the dynamics of each robot joint. Scene interpretation of CCD-camera images generates(More)
Product Service Systems (PSS) and Prognostic Health Management (PHM) have so far been researched individually in different domains and as unrelated research theme. However, to guarantee the availability of the asset, which is a typical demand in some PSS contracts, it is fundamental for PSS providers to be able to properly manage the asset's lifetime(More)
— This paper describes the implementation of a platform based on reconfigurable architecture and on concepts of virtual instrumentation and its application to the hands-free driving problem. The novelty of this approach is the use of both reconfigurable systems (for developing the car's controller) and virtual instrumentation issues for developing a(More)
The present study shows the relationship between welding quality and optical-acoustic emissions from electric arcs, during welding runs, in the GMAW-S process. Bead on plate welding tests was carried out with pre-set parameters chosen from manufacturing standards. During the welding runs interferences were induced on the welding path using paint, grease or(More)
This paper presents an online simulation framework that can be used to support operational decisions within the context of Through-life Engineering Services. Acting as a closed-loop feedback control mechanism, the simulation model is physically coupled to the assets and will be triggered and automatically executed to assess a set of operational decisions(More)
