Improving performance of a remote robotic teleoperation over the internet

Arslan, Mehmet Selçuk
In this thesis study, it is aimed to improve the performance of an Internet-based teleoperation system enabling the remote operation of a 6 DOF industrial robot. In order to improve the safety and efficiency of the teleoperation, stability and synchronization (hand-eye coordination) are considered. The selected communication medium between the human operator and remote robot is the Internet. The variable time delays and nondeterministic characteristics of the Internet may lead to instability of the teleoperation system. Considering the disturbing effects of the Internet onto the transmission, an event-based control approach is used in order to improve the stability of the teleoperation system. Besides, a visual feedback system is developed and a force-feedback mouse is designed in order to improve synchronization between the human operator and robot during the command generation according to the feedback obtained from the control system. A client-server software application is developed to interface the human operator with remote environment. It is observed that, using the event-based control approach in the operation makes the teleoperation stable and improves the synchronization ability. Implementation of visual feedback and force-feedback mouse to the teleoperation system improves the human operator̕s ability to perform remote operation.

Design and construction of a folding mechanism for a radar system
Yurt, Hünkar Kemal; Turgut, Ali Emre; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2019)
In this thesis, a folding mechanism with 1 degrees of freedom is designed and constructed for a two-antenna radar system. The optimum mechanism for the problem is systematically selected among the conceptual mechanism alternatives. Then, a detailed synthesis and analysis study is performed on the selected mechanism, and the mechanism is implemented to the geometry of the radar system. By performing modal and strength analyses on the 3D model of the folding mechanism created during the implementation study, ...
Dynamic performances of kinematically and dynamically adjustable planar mechanisms
İyiay, Erdinç; Soylu, Reşit; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2003)
In this thesis, the dynamic performances of kinematically and dynamically adjustable planar mechanisms have been investigated. An adjustable mechanism is here defined to be a mechanism where some of the kinematic and/or dynamic parameters are changed in a controlled manner in order to optimize the dynamic behaviour of the mechanism in spite of variable operating conditions. Here, variable operating conditions refer to variable load(s) on the mechanism and/or variable desired input motion. The dynamic behavi...
An algorithm to resolve the optimal locomotion problem of modular robots
Mencek, Hakan; Soylu, Reşit; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2007)
In this study, a novel optimal motion planning algorithm is developed for the locomotion of modular robots. The total energy consumption of the robot is considered to be the optimization criteria. In order to determine the energy consumption of the system, the kinematic and dynamic analyses of the system are performed. Due to the variable number of modules in the system, a recursive formulation is developed for both kinematic and dynamic analyses. Coulomb's static and dynamic friction models are used to mod...
Experimental evaluation of cable drum systems as linear motion sensors
KILIÇ, ERGİN; Dölen, Melik; Koku, Ahmet Buğra (2011-04-15)
This study evaluates cable-drum mechanisms as linear motion sensors for certain CNC applications. In this work, the dynamical attributes of a generic device are studied experimentally. The conducted research indicates that despite the significant traction force induced between the cable and its drum, small fluctuations in mechanism's speed yields a considerable (micro) slip at the interface.
