Robotic manipulation and sensing of deformable objects in domestic and industrial applications: a survey

Jose Sanchez, Juan-Antonio Corrales, Belhassen-Chedli Bouzgarrou, Youcef Mezouar
2018 The international journal of robotics research  
We present a survey of recent work on robot manipulation and sensing of deformable objects, a field with relevant applications in diverse industries such as medical (e.g. surgery assistance), food handling  ...  We classify the reviewed approaches into four categories based on the type of object they manipulate.  ...  Their approach differs however, on a dynamic manipulation of the rope that relies on high-speed sensors and actuators (1 KHz).  ...

Interactive topological drawing

Robert Glenn Scharein
1998
This notion of equivalence may be thought of as the heart of knot theory. We present methods for the computer construction and interactive manipulation of a wide variety of knots.  ...  The first of these involves finding the stick-number of a knot (the fewest number of straight sticks needed to form the knot).  ...  Before considering exactly what this means, consider Figure 3 .34 where a knotted open-ended arc is shown with its endpoints sitting on the y-axis.  ...
