Download Whole-Body Impedance Control of Wheeled Humanoid Robots by Alexander Dietrich PDF

By Alexander Dietrich

Introducing cellular humanoid robots into human environments calls for the platforms to bodily have interaction and execute a number of concurrent initiatives. The monograph to hand provides a whole-body torque controller for dexterous and secure robot manipulation. This keep an eye on process permits a cellular humanoid robotic to at the same time meet numerous keep an eye on pursuits with various pre-defined degrees of precedence, whereas offering the talents for compliant actual contacts with people and the environment.

After a normal creation into the subject of whole-body keep watch over, numerous crucial reactive projects are constructed to increase the repertoire of robot keep an eye on targets. also, the classical Cartesian impedance is prolonged to the case of cellular robots. All of those projects are then mixed and built-in into an total, priority-based keep an eye on legislation. in addition to the experimental validation of the method, the formal facts of asymptotic balance for this hierarchical controller is gifted. through interconnecting the whole-body controller with a man-made intelligence, the significant strength of the built-in procedure for complicated real-world purposes is proven. a number of usual loved ones chores, equivalent to autonomously wiping a window or sweeping the ground with a brush, are effectively played at the cellular humanoid robotic Rollin’ Justin of the German Aerospace middle (DLR).

The effects recommend the awarded controller for a wide number of fields of software reminiscent of provider robotics, human-robot cooperation in undefined, telepresence in clinical functions, house robotics eventualities, and the operation of cellular robots in risky and unsafe environments.
