Landing, perching and taking off from vertical surfaces

Alexis Lussier Desbiens, Alan T Asbeck, Mark R Cutkosky
2011 The international journal of robotics research  
A planar dynamic model is used to evaluate pitch-up maneuvers and determine suspension parameters that satisfy constraints on the contact forces for a range of flight velocities.  ...  The plane contacts the wall with spines that engage asperities on the surface. A non-linear suspension absorbs the kinetic energy while keeping the spines attached.  ...  Acknowledgements We would like to thank the members of the BDML at Stanford for all their help in conducting the experiments reported here.  ...

Simulating humans: computer graphics animation and control

1994 ChoiceReviews  
The very ubiquitousness of other people in our lives poses a tantalizing challenge to the computational modeler: people are at once the most common object of interest and yet the most structurally complex  ...  Likewise we learn how to describe the actions and behaviors of others without consciously struggling with the processes of perception, recognition, and language.  ...  Surface and Boundary Models The simplest surface model is just a collection of 3D points or lines. Surfaces represented by points require a fairly dense distribution of points for accurate modeling.  ...
