Robots with Privacy Stipulations
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2018-02-14)
In late July last year, it came to light that iRobot Corp. intended to sell the maps that modern Roomba vacuum cleaning robots build to help them navigate. This caused a public furor among consumers. This situation and ...
Robots for Physical Interaction
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2019-01-23)
While robots dominate repetitive works in factories, the design and control of these robots are not suitable for relatively complex tasks that humans do easily. These tasks typically require force sensing and interaction ...
Examining the Slow, Noisy, and Complex Process of Technology Adoption
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2017-03-31)
Star Wars: The Rise of Robots and Intelligent Machines
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2020-09-30)
A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away, a space opera movie captured the imaginations of roboticists, researchers, and writers from around the world. Over the last 43 years, Star Wars has had an immense impact on our ...
Multi‐Robot Systems for Monitoring and Controlling Large Scale Environments
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2015-04-22)
Groups of aerial, ground, and sea robots working collaboratively have the potential to transform the way we sense and interact with our environment at large scales. They can serve as eyes‐in‐the‐sky for environmental ...
Collective Construction by Termites and Other Robots
Termites build huge, complex structures through the collective actions of millions of independent agents. These natural systems inspire the research area of collective construction, whose goal is to develop autonomous ...
Analytic Inverse Kinematics for the Universal Robots UR-5/UR-10 Arms
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2013-12-07)
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2001)
The nature of robotic arms invites vibratory behavior while the function of robotic arms is heavily penalized by that vibration. Consequently, understanding and compensating for the tendencies of a robot to vibrate are of ...
Global Manipulation Planning in Robot Joint Space With Task Constraints
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010-06)
We explore global randomized joint space path planning for articulated robots that are subject to task space constraints. This paper describes a representation of constrained motion for joint space planners and develops ...
Planning Among Movable Obstacles with Artificial Constraints
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2008-11)
This paper presents artificial constraints as a method for guiding heuristic search in the computationally challenging domain of motion planning among movable obstacles. The robot is permitted to manipulate unspecified ...
