Engagement Study of an Integrated Rehabilitation Robotic Tablet-Based Gaming System
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2014-09)
Physical therapy is a common treatment for the rehabilitation of hemiparesis, or the weakness of one side of the body. However, a significant issue in the therapy process is that patients may struggle with motivation to ...
A Novel Teleoperated Long-Reach Manipulator Testbed and its Remote Capabilities via the Internet
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1996-06)
During the 1995 DOE Robotics Forum at Albuquerque, New Mexico, Georgia Tech's Intelligent Machine Dynamics Laboratory demonstrated remote display capabilities of its telemanipulated long-reach manipulator testbed through ...
Effects of sensory precision on mobile robot localization and mapping
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010-12)
This paper will explore the relationship between sensory accuracy and Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) performance. As inexpensive robots are developed with commodity components, the relationship between ...
Place Recognition-Based Fixed-Lag Smoothing for Environments with Unreliable GPS
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2008-05)
Pose estimation of outdoor robots presents some distinct challenges due to the various uncertainties in the robot sensing and action. In particular, global positioning sensors of outdoor robots do not always work ...
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 ...
Robot Path Planning Using Field Programmable Analog Arrays
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-05)
We present the successful application of reconfigurable Analog-Very-Large-Scale-Integrated (AVLSI) circuits to motion planning for the AmigoBot robot. Previous research has shown that custom application-specific-integ ...
Real-Time Path Planning for a Robot Arm in Changing Environments
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010-10)
We present a practical strategy for real-time path planning for articulated robot arms in changing environments by integrating PRM for Changing Environments with 3D sensor data. Our implementation on Care-O-Bot 3 ...
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 ...
Examining the Slow, Noisy, and Complex Process of Technology Adoption
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2017-03-31)
Hierarchical motion planning for autonomous aerial and terrestrial vehicles
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011-05-03)
Autonomous mobile robots - both aerial and terrestrial vehicles - have gained immense importance due to the broad spectrum of their potential military and civilian applications. One of the indispensable requirements for ...
