Smart office robot collaboration based on multi-agent programming

F. Mizoguchi, H. Nishiyama, H. Ohwada, H. Hiraishi
1999 Artificial Intelligence  
We have developed a multi-agent robot language (MRL) as an evolution of concurrent logic programming. MRL provides synchronous and asynchronous control of agents based on guarded Horn clauses.  ...  In this environment, many cameras and infrared sensors allow handling robots and mobile robots to perform complex tasks such as printing and delivering document.  ...  This indicates the advantage of the multi-agent approach for designing cooperative systems for various information appliances including robots and sensors.  ...

A Review on Cable-driven Parallel Robots

Sen Qian, Bin Zi, Wei-Wei Shang, Qing-Song Xu
2018 Chinese Journal of Mechanical Engineering  
Cable-driven parallel robots (CDPRs) are categorized as a type of parallel manipulators. In CDPRs, flexible cables are used to take the place of rigid links.  ...  The particular property of cables provides CDPRs several advantages, including larger workspaces, higher payload-to-weight ratio and lower manufacturing costs rather than rigid-link robots.  ...  For instance, a cooperative CDPR consists of multiple mobile cranes is designed, as shown in Figure 4 .  ...
