Detection of Landmines Using Nuclear Quadrupole Resonance (NQR): Signal Processing to Aid Classification [chapter]

S. D. Somasundaram, K. Althoefer, J. A. S. Smith, L. D. Seneviratne
2006 Climbing and Walking Robots  
The paper deals with a pattern recognition approach to detect and classify falls of bipedal robots according to intensity and direction.  ...  The signs can be used for pointing a direction, bounding an area, marking a route, or defining location of a target. There are two kinds of signs, passive and active.  ...  Abstract We describe an optimized method for calibrating the walk parameters of a quadruped robot.  ...

Anticipatory Mechanisms of Human Sensory-Motor Coordiantion Inspire Control of Adaptive Robots: a Brief Review [chapter]

Alejandra Barrera
2010 Robot Learning  
Images from the robot omni-directional camera are processed to emphasize the obstacles and reduce the number of pixels.  ...  Azevedo et al. (2004) proposed a locomotion control scheme for two-legged robots based on the human walking principle of anticipating the consequences of motor actions by using internal models.  ...  -Included applications demonstrate the utility of the subject in terms of real-world problems. -A separate chapter on Anticipatory-mechanisms-of-human-sensory-motor-coordination and biped locomotion.  ...

A Controller for Improving Lateral Stability in a Dynamically Stable Gait [chapter]

Zhenglong Sun, Nico Roos
2016 IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology  
The parameters controlling the characteristics of the signals are encoded into genes and evolutionary strategies is used to learn an optimal set of parameters.  ...  In the work of [19] , the proposed method models the omni-directional motion as the combination of a set of periodic signals.  ...

Evolution of functional specialization in a morphologically homogeneous robot

Joshua Auerbach, Josh C. Bongard
2009 Proceedings of the 11th Annual conference on Genetic and evolutionary computation - GECCO '09  
Evolutionary robotics-the use of evolutionary algorithms to automate the production of autonomous robotshas been an active area of research for two decades.  ...  Particular focus is given to methods which evolve not only the control policies of manually-designed robots, but instead evolve both the control policy and physical form of the robot.  ...  Bongard and Paul (2001) investigated parameterizing morphological aspects of a simulated 9 bipedal robot tasked with locomoting.  ...
