• Integrated Modeling, Simulation, and Animation of Rigid Arms and Vehicles through Object-Oriented Programming 

      Schmitt, Paul Richard; Hogan, John E.; Cameron, Jonathan M.; Book, Wayne John (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1994-02)
      This paper describes an object-oriented system, "MBSIM" (MultiBody SIMulator), that models, simulates, and animates the kinematics and dynamics of robotic arms and vehicles. This system creates a three dimensional graphical ...
    • Optimal path planning for the motion of a wheel 

      Cameron, Jonathan M.; Book, Wayne John (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 1994-05)
      In this paper, the authors examine optimal path planning for the motion of a wheel which minimizes some combination of time and effort expended. Several techniques are examined but a combination of continuation and ...
    • Reactive Control for Mobile Manipulation 

      Cameron, Jonathan M.; MacKenzie, Douglas C.; Ward, Keith R.; Arkin, Ronald C.; Book, Wayne John (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 1993-05)
      Research for executing large-scale motions of mobile manipulators is described. Mobile manipulators are mobile bases with an attached arm which function in an integrated manner. Motivation is given for moving the arm while ...
