Dynamics and robust control of robot-environment interaction( )

9 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book covers the most attractive problem in robot control, dealing with the direct interaction between a robot and a dynamic environment, including the human-robot physical interaction. It provides comprehensive theoretical and experimental coverage of interaction control problems, starting from the mathematical modeling of robots interacting with complex dynamic environments, and proceeding to various concepts for interaction control design and implementation algorithms at different control layers. Focusing on the learning principle, it also shows the application of new and advanced learning algorithms for robotic contact tasks."--Jacket

Dynamics of manipulation robots : theory and application by Miomir Vukobratović( Book )

18 editions published between 1982 and 1986 in 3 languages and held by 432 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph represents the first book of the series entitled "SCI­ ENTIFIC FUNDAMENTALS OF ROBOTICS". The aim of this monograph is to ap­ proach the dynamics of active mechanisms from the standpoint of its application to the synthesis of complex motion and computer-aided de­ sign of manipulation mechanisms with some optimal performances. The rapid development of a new class of mechanisms, which may be referred to as active mechanisms, contributed to their application in various environments (from underwater to cosmic) . Because of some specific fea­ tures, these mechanisms require very careful description, both in a mechanical sense (kinematic and dynamic) and in the synthesis of algo­ rithms for precise tracking of the above motion under insufficiently defined operating conditions. Having also in mind the need for a very fast (even real-time) calculation of system dynamics and for eliminating, in principle, the errors made when forming mathematical models "by hand" this monograph will primarily present methods for automatic for­ mUlation of dynamic equations of motion of active spatial mechanisms. Apart from these computer-oriented methods, mention will be made of all those methods which have preceded the computer-oriented procedures, predominantly developed for different problems of rigid body dynamics. If we wish to systematically establish the origins of the scientific discipline, which could be called robot dynamics, we must recall some groups and individuals, who, by solving actual problems in the synthe­ sis and control of artificial motion, have contributed to a gradual formation of this discipline
Control of manipulation robots : theory and application by Miomir Vukobratović( Book )

14 editions published between 1982 and 1985 in English and held by 407 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph represents the second book of the series entitled: "SCI­ ENTIFIC FUNDAl-1ENTALS OF ROBOTICS". While the first volume provides a study of the dynamics of spatial mechanisms and its application to the design of these mechanisms, the present one focuses on the synthesis -of control based~n the knowledge of dynamic models (presented in de­ tail in the first_ volume). In this way a logical continuity is formed in which one may easily recognize a "dynamic" approach to the design of manipulation r-obots and the synthesis of control algorithms based on exact mathematical models of dynamics of open spatial mechanisms. When writing the monograph, the authors had the following objective: to prove that a study of dynamic properties of manipulation mechanisms is justifiable, to use the dynamic properties in the synthesis of con­ trol algorithms, and to determine, from one case to another, a proper measure of dynamics depending on the type of manipulation task, the "v$!locity at which "it is carried out, and on the type of the manipu- tion mechanisms itself. The authors believe they have thus made the study of dynamics,' aimed at synthesizing algorithms for dynamic con­ trol, free from unnecessary academicism and allowed the readers to apply all the results presented here to practical purposes of manipu­ lator design in thfil broader sense of the word. At this point, the au­ thors would like to present some concepts which were their guidelines in preparing this text
Modern aircraft flight control by Miomir Vukobratović( Book )

11 editions published in 1988 in English and Undetermined and held by 315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A complete dynamic model of flight dynamics is presented. Based on this model, the inverse problem and that of the synthesis of programmed motion are solved. A new approach to decoupled control of large-scale nonlinear systems is applied to dynamic flight control. Control synthesis is performed in two steps. First the nominal programmed control is synthesized using the complete model of flight dynamics. This nominal control should realize nominal trajectory under ideal conditions with no perturbations. At the second step the tracking of nominal trajectory is realized. The system is viewed as a set of decoupled subsystems and for each subsystem local control is synthesized. Then the stability of the overall system is analyzed and global control is introduced to compensate coupling among some of the subsystems. In the book a particular choice of subsystems is proposed in a case of flight control, and the local and global control synthesis is presented. Extensive simulations of flight control with different control laws are also presented

Applied dynamic and CAD of manipulation robots by Miomir Vukobratović( Book )

8 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a logical continuation of Volume 1 of the series entitled "Scientific Fundamentals of Robotics" which presents all of the basic methods for computerized construction of dynamics of manipulation ro­ bots as well as the essential concepts of computer-aided design of their mechanics. Vol. 1 of the Series also contains the main practical re­ sults from the elastodynamics of manipulation robots, having in mind a need for forming a computer procedure which allows efficient checks of elastic deformations of a manipulator tip or some other of its charac­ teristic points. Wishing to add a highly applications-oriented dimension to the dynamic aspect of studies of manipulation robots, the authors have made a kind of a topic-based selection by leaving unconsidered some aspects of studies of robots, such as elasticity, and discussing others, more im­ portant in their opinion, to such an extent as suffices to make them practically applicable. The authors have decided not to treat in detail the problem of flexible manipulation robots for two reasons. The first results from the atti­ tude that the permissible (desired) robot elasticity may, satisfacto­ rily well, be tested using the method described in Vol. 1 of the Series
Non-adaptive and adaptive control of manipulation robots by Miomir Vukobratović( Book )

10 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The material presented in this monograph is a logical continuation of research results achieved in the control of manipulation robots. This is in a way, a synthesis of many-year research efforts of the associates of Robotics Department, Mihailo Pupin Institute, in the field of dynamic control.of robotic systems. As in Vol. 2 of this Series, all results rely on the mathematical models of dynamics of active spatial mechanisms which offer the possibility for adequate dynamic control of manipula­ tion robots. Compared with Vol. 2, this monograph has three essential new character­ istics, and a variety of new tasks arising in the control of robots which have been formulated and solved for the first time. One of these novelties is nonadaptive control synthesized for the case of large variations in payload parameters, under the condition that the practical stability of the overall system is satisfied. Such a case of control synthesis meets the actual today's needs in industrial robot applications. The second characteristic of the monograph is the efficient adaptive control algorithm based on decentralized control structure intended for tasks in which parameter variations cannot be specified in advance. To be objective, this is not the case in industrial robotics today. Thus, nonadaptive control with and without a particular parameter variation is supplemented by adaptive dynamic control algorithms which will cer­ tainly be applicable in the future industrial practice when parametric identification of workpieces will be required
Kinematics and trajectory synthesis of manipulation robots by Miomir Vukobratović( Book )

15 editions published between 1976 and 2012 in English and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A few words about the series "Scientific Fundamentals of Robotics" should be said on the occasion of publication of the present monograph. This six-volume series has been conceived so as to allow the readers to master a contemporary approach to the construction and synthesis of con trol for manipulation ~obots. The authors' idea was to show how to use correct mathematical models of the dynamics of active spatial mecha nisms for dynamic analysis of robotic systems, optimal design of their mechanical parts based on the accepted criteria and imposed constraints, optimal choice of actuators, synthesis of dynamic control algorithms and their microcomputer implementation. In authors' oppinion this idea has been relatively successfully realized within the six-volume mono graphic series. Let us remind the readers of the books of this series. Volumes 1 and 2 are devoted to the dynamics and control algorithms of manipulation ro bots, respectively. They form the first part of the series which has a certain topic-related autonomy in the domain of the construction and application of the mathematical models of robotic mechanisms' dynamics

Intelligent Control of Robotic Systems by Dusko Katic( )

4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As robotic systems make their way into standard practice, they have opened the door to a wide spectrum of complex applications. Such applications usually demand that the robots be highly intelligent. Future robots are likely to have greater sensory capabilities, more intelligence, higher levels of manual dexter­ ity, and adequate mobility, compared to humans. In order to ensure high-quality control and performance in robotics, new intelligent control techniques must be developed, which are capable of coping with task complexity, multi-objective decision making, large volumes of perception data and substantial amounts of heuristic information. Hence, the pursuit of intelligent autonomous robotic systems has been a topic of much fascinating research in recent years. On the other hand, as emerging technologies, Soft Computing paradigms consisting of complementary elements of Fuzzy Logic, Neural Computing and Evolutionary Computation are viewed as the most promising methods towards intelligent robotic systems. Due to their strong learning and cognitive ability and good tolerance of uncertainty and imprecision, Soft Computing techniques have found wide application in the area of intelligent control of robotic systems
