Control of a planar cable-actuated parallel manipulator with realistic cables
Düzgören, Onur; Özgören, Mustafa Kemal; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2018)
The cable-actuated parallel manipulators comprise a new class of robotic systems which utilize length-controlled unilateral force elements like cables or wires to move and orient an object. They provide several benefits over conventional parallel robots, such as larger workspace, simpler structure, and higher payload/manipulator weight ratio. However, the cables can only be pulled but not pushed. Besides, they may sag due to their own weight. Therefore, the cable-actuated manipulators pose challenges in mod...
Control of a differentially driven mobile robot using radial basis function based neural networks
Bayar, Gökhan; Konukseven, Erhan İlhan; Buǧra Koku, A. (2008-12-01)
This paper proposes the use of radial basis function neural networks approach to the solution of a mobile robot orientation adjustment using reinforcement learning. In order to control the orientation of the mobile robot, a neural network control system has been constructed and implemented. Neural controller has been charged to enhance the control system by adding some degrees of award. Making use of the potential of neural networks to learn the relationships, the desired reference orientation and the error...
Control of Robotic Swarm Behaviors based on Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics
Erkmen, Aydan Müşerref; Paç, Raşid (2007-10-28)
The paper presents a fluid dynamics based framework for control of emergent behaviors of robot swarms that are modeled as fluids. A distributed low-level control mechanism is developed based on Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) and it is coupled with a high-level control layer that is responsible for the control of fluid parameters to generate desired behaviors from the swarming characteristics of the robots. It is shown by simulations that using the same low-level SPH model, different swarming behavior...
Control of Hopping Through Active Virtual Tuning of Leg Damping for Serially Actuated Legged Robots
SEÇER, Gorkem; Saranlı, Uluç (2014-06-07)
Spring-mass models have been very successful both in describing and generating running behaviors. Control of system energy within these models takes different forms, among which the use of a linear actuator in series with the leg spring has been preferred by many recent monopedal and bipedal platform designs due to its relative robustness and simplicity. However, the validity of the well-known Spring-Loaded Inverted Pendulum (SLIP) model of running for such platforms can only preserved under a specific fami...
