The Rao-Blackwellized particle filter (RBPF) and FastSLAM have two important limitations, which are the derivation of the Jacobian matrices and the linear approximations of nonlinear functions. These can make the filter inconsistent. Another challenge is to reduce the number of particles while maintaining the estimation accuracy. This paper provides a(More)
The disturbance observer (DOB) has been widely utilized for high precision and high speed motion control applications. In this paper, we suggest the robustness measure of DOB, as a criterion to design the robust DOB systems. Also, we suggest its design guidelines especially for second-order systems. Experimental results for an optical disk drive system show(More)
The thruster is the crucial factor of an underwater vehicle system, because it is the lowest layer in the control loop of the system. However, an accurate and practical thruster model has not been utilized yet. In this paper, we propose an accurate and practical thrust modeling for underwater vehicles which considers the effects of ambient flow velocity. In(More)
Reliable data association is crucial to localization and map building for mobile robot applications. For that reason, many mobile robots tend to choose vision-based SLAM solutions. In this paper, a SLAM scheme based on visual object recognition, not just a scene matching, in home environment is proposed without using artificial landmarks. For the(More)
In this paper, we address the problem of building a grid map using cheap sonar sensors, i.e., the problem of using erroneous sensors when seeking to model an environment as accurately as possible. We rely on the inconsistency of information among sonar measurements and the sound pressure of the waves from the sonar sensors to develop a new method of(More)
In this paper, a robust algorithm that discriminates various eye motions from the ElectroOculoGram (EOG) signals is proposed. Previous researches that use the EOG only focused on saccadic motions or blinks. However, we cover all eye motions including double/triple blinks and left/right winks. Furthermore, we suggest a novel method, which removes noises of(More)
State estimation problem with time delayed measurements is addressed. In dynamic system with noise, after taking measurements, it often requires some time until that is available in a filter. A filter not considering this time delay cannot be used since a current measurement is related with a past state. These delayed measurements problem is solved with(More)
In this work, impedance control approach based on an extended task space formulation is addressed to control the kinematically redundant manipulators. By defining a weighted inner product in joint space, a minimal parameterization of the null space is achieved, and we can visualize the null space motion explicitly. Moreover, it is shown that careful choice(More)
