Theory and Control Systems

M/M cooperation in hyper-flexible robotic cells
Robotic cells employ anthropomorphic manipulators for a variety of tasks which may require close cooperation with human operators. This gives rise to complex problems involving control, safety and M/M communication, whose solution requires the development of performing sensory systems and of reliable decisional procedures. The research aims at developing a proximity/contact sensory system, based on E-field sensors, to be installed on an anthropomorphic manipulator in order to allow close cooperation with human operators. Construction of the hardware components, development of the sensory signal processing and integration into the manipulator control system are the main steps in the planed work. Validation of the sensory system in specific production processes will follow.
