Robotic Aubergine Harvesting Using Dual-Arm Manipulation

Delia Sepulveda, Roemi Fernandez, Eduardo Navas, Manuel Armada, Pablo Gonzalez-de-Santos
2020 IEEE Access  
However, there are some current problems associated with unstructured environments make developing a robotic harvester a challenge.  ...  This article presents a dual-arm aubergine harvesting robot consisting of two robotic arms configured in an anthropomorphic manner to optimize the dual workspace.  ...  Finally, by applying the transformation of the end-effector robot to its base, the 3D localization of each aubergine with respect to the end-effector is procured.  ...

The use of robotics devices in knee rehabilitation: a critical review

R. Wilmart, E. Garone, B. Innocenti
2019 Muscles Ligaments and Tendons Journal  
This paper aims at providing a critical review of the different proposed robotic solutions and the associated rehabilitation techniques for the knee in particular and for the lower limb in general, with  ...  Fortunately, it is generally agreed that robotics may benefit to both patients and physiotherapists due to its ability to repeat tasks with accuracy and its potential to measure the progress of the rehabilitation  ...  If the end effector (ankle point) deviates from the target path, the controller acts as a spring and pulls the end effector back to the target path" (57) .  ...

A systematic approach for developing agent-based architectural design models of segmented shells : towards autonomously learned goal-oriented agent behaviors [article]

Tobias Schwinn, Universität Stuttgart
The work thus proposes a methodology for developing agent-based models of buildings where agents constitute building elements.  ...  As part of large-span surface structures, segmented shells have shown to possess similar desirable features, while allowing for a high degree of prefabrication.  ...  Fabrication constraints are determined by the Degrees of Freedom (DOFs) of the fabrication machinery, in this case the 6-axis robot arm, and by the end-effector geometry.  ...
