Fuzzy representation of grasping modes

Aydin, KK
Robot hands are preshaped according to a selected grasping mode before the actual grasping action. Grasping modes depend on the kinematic structure of the robot hand, the geometry and physical properties of the target object, along with information on the goal of the task. A fuzzy representation of grasping modes is presented in this paper. Properties of target objects and task primitives are mapped onto various grasp features which are used as membership functions for the fuzzy sets representing the grasping modes. The relations of object and task features with the grasping modes can be investigated by examining the presented fuzzy representation.


Optimal initialization of manipulation dynamics by vorticity model of robot hand preshaping. Part I: Vorticity model
Erkmen, Aydan Müşerref; Tekkaya, E (Wiley, 2000-04-01)
The manipulation phase of a multifingered robot hand is initialized, upon contact, by the impact force patterns imparted to the object at contact points, in the final state of a preshaped hand closure. The object then inherits from contacts different helix motion tendencies (translation, rotation) as the initial conditions of manipulation. These motion tendencies are caused by the forces/torques imparted to the object upon impact, and are generated by changes of momenta of the closing hand preshape at the c...
Momentum Transfer from the Fingers to Object Based on Fluid Dynamics
Ozyer, Baris; Erkmen, İsmet; Erkmen, Aydan Müşerref (2010-10-22)
The initial effect of the impact force patterns on the object for achieving stably grasping is dependent on starting of the movement of a robot hand by taking an optimal preshape. These impact force patterns generated from the changes of the momenta obtained from the fingers lead to motion tendencies of the object. Determining optimal preshape of hand is closely related with the continuum between the initial position of hand preshape and posture of the hand at the contact points on the object. In this paper...
Hierarchical behavior categorization using correlation based adaptive resonance theory
Yavaş, Mustafa; Alpaslan, Ferda Nur (2012-02-01)
This paper introduces a new model for robot behavior categorization. Correlation based adaptive resonance theory (CobART) networks are integrated hierarchically in order to develop an adequate categorization, and to elicit various behaviors performed by the robot. The proposed model is developed by adding a second layer CobART network which receives first layer CobART network categories as an input, and back-propagates the matching information to the first layer networks. The first layer CobART networks cat...
Motion Control of a Spatial Elastic Manipulator in the Presence of Measurement Noises
Kilicaslan, Sinan; İder, Sıtkı Kemal; Özgören, Mustafa Kemal (2021-07-01)
This paper presents a method for the end effector motion control of a spatial three-link robot having elastic second and third links including measurement noises. In the derivation of equations of motion, not to face with complex equations of motion, each link is modeled as though the links are not connected and the restrictions on the links due to connecting them by joints are written as constraint equations. After that the Lagrange multipliers are eliminated and the constraint equations at the acceleratio...
Multi-agent system-based fuzzy controller design with genetic tuning for a mobile manipulator robot in the hand over task
Erden, MS; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal; Halıcı, Uğur (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2004-03-01)
This paper presents an application of the multi-agent system approach to a service mobile manipulator robot that interacts with a human during an object delivery and hand-over task in two dimensions. The base, elbow and shoulder of the robot are identified as three different agents, and are controlled using fuzzy control. The control variables of the controllers are linear velocity of the base, angular velocity of the elbow, and angular velocity of the shoulder. Main inputs to the system are the horizontal ...
