This paper presents the concept and design of a strain gauge sensor, which is a part of a pipe crawling robot and can be used for the purpose of detecting the shape of a collapsed pipe or tunnels like voids within rubble. The paper illustrates the sensor's working principle. The sensor uses a...
Describes an automated robotic milking system that allows self‐milking by cows. Benefits include increased yield, improved cow welfare and reduced labour. Describes elephant‐trunk robotic arms and vision guidance system for teat acquisition.
Summarises the content of the IEE Tustin lecture presented by Professor Katsuhisha Furuta of the Tokyo Institute of Technology. The work discussed is part of the $10 million super mechano systems project which concentrates on developing walking machines based largely on pendulae principles.
Eureka project E! 1784 Eurolaser Publics is creating a fully automated solution for the 2D and 3D laser cutting of metals up to 20 mm thick. The European consortium made up of Italian, French and Danish companies has developed a closed loop system incorporating innovative sensors and control...
This paper presents the design and validation of a universal 6D seam tracking system that reduces the need of accurate robot trajectory programming and geometrical databases in robotic laser scanning. The 6D seam tracking system was developed in the flexible unified simulation environment,...
In advanced robotics applications in unstructured environments (e.g. those foreseen in space) some degree of dexterity and autonomy is necessary in order to safely and successfully execute the required tasks. With this respect, besides the kinematic configuration, important aspects to be...
This article describes the image processing and tracking algorithms used in a mechanical hoe that accurately weeds between parallel rows of crops under variable outdoor illumination conditions.
A profile of Birkby's Plastics, a UK‐based leading European plastic moulding company that has successfully completed a management buy‐out. Birkby's supplies to the major automotive OEMs and Tier One manufacturers and to leading business machine OEMs. It is more than a standard trade moulder...
A Tokyo‐based construction company, Fujita Corporation, has developed the unmanned “Tele‐Earthwork System”. It features a remotely controlled robot which manipulates conventional construction machines (such as backhoes and bulldozers) in the same way as a human operator. The robot can be...
Automatic target recognition in agricultural harvesting robots is characterized by low detection rates and high false alarm rates due to the unstructured nature of both the environment and the objects. To improve detection human‐robot collaboration levels were defined and implemented. The...
