The concept, the status and the respective challenges of the emerging non-volatile memory technologies are described. After discussing the magneto-resistive random access memory technology, the ferro-electric random access memory technology and the phase change memory technology, their key properties are summarized and compared to the well-established Flash… (More)
This paper describes the design and control methodology used for the development of a dual-arm manipulator as well as its deployment in a production scenario. Multi-modal and sensor-based manipulation strategies are used to guide the robot on its task to supervise and, when necessary, solve faulty situations in a production line. For that task the robot is… (More)
In robotic space missions, different challenges like high latency, unknown environments or bad visual conditions make it hard for the operators to plan and execute the mission. We present our mission control using virtual reality to remotely execute a sample-return mission in the field via satellite.
