Design and analysis of a compliant grasper for handling live objects
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2003-11-24)
This thesis presents the development of a model for analyzing the design of an automated live-bird transfer system (LBTS) developed at Georgia Tech. One of the most fundamental tasks in the automated transferring is to ...
An architecture for intelligent robotic sensor fusion
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1992)
Reconfigurable analog circuits for path planning and image processing
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2013-08-23)
Path planning and image processing are critical signal processing tasks for robots, autonomous vehicles, animated characters, etc. The ultimate goal of the path planning problem being addressed in this dissertation is how ...
Characterizing and facilitating human interactions with swarms of mobile robots
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2015-02-20)
Since humans and robots often share workspaces and interact with each other to complete tasks cooperatively, as is the case, for example, in automated warehouses and assembly lines, much of the focus has been centered on ...
Design and Control of a New Reconfigurable Robotic Mobility Platform
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2007-04-05)
The development of a new family of robotic vehicles for use in the exploration of Mars and other remote planets is an ongoing process. Current rovers have to traverse rough terrain and be able to withstand various ...
Design of a low cost, high speed robot for poultry processing
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2004-08-10)
In poultry plants in the United States, a water chiller is used to chill WOGs (de-feathered birds without giblets). After exiting the chiller these birds are manually transferred from a conveyor belt to shackles for further ...
Countering murphys law: the use of anticipation and improvisation via an episodic memory in support of intelligent robot behavior
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2008-10-21)
Recently in robotics, substantial efforts have been invested on critical applications such as military, nursing, and search-and-rescue. These applications are critical in a sense that the robots may directly deal with human ...
Vision based 3D obstacle detection using a single camera for robots/UAVs
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-07-01)
This thesis aims at detecting obstacles using a single camera in an unknown 3D world for 3D motion of the robot/UAV. Obstacle detection is a pre-requisite for collision-free motion of robots/UAVs. Most of the research ...
Object categorization for affordance prediction
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2008-07-01)
A fundamental requirement of any autonomous robot system is the ability to predict the affordances of its environment, which define how the robot can interact with various objects. In this dissertation, we demonstrate that ...
Distributed Task Allocation Methodologies for Solving the Initial Formation Problem
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2008-07-10)
Mobile sensor networks have been shown to be a powerful tool for enabling a number of activities that require recording of environmental parameters at various spatial and temporal distributions. These mobile sensor networks ...
