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 and motion planning for mobile robots via a secure wireless communication protocol
Kaya, Muhammed Çağrı; Eroğlu, Alperen; Temizer, Selim (null; 2013-05-21)
Mobile robot control is receiving considerably more attention in current robotics research. Especially unmanned vehicles are used in important missions such as bomb disposal, patrolling borders of a country by unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), etc. This usage increases the importance of unmanned vehicles and they become a target of malevolent people. In this study, a controllable robot system is designed with a secure communication protocol. A Pioneer P3-DX robot is used as a ground vehicle. The robot operat...
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...

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...
