      Stoytchev, Alexander (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2007-06-11)
      The ability to use tools is one of the hallmarks of intelligence. Tool use is fundamental to human life and has been for at least the last two million years. We use tools to extend our reach, to amplify our physical strength, ...
    • Robot Vibration Control Using Inertial Damping Forces 

      Lee, Soo Han; Book, Wayne John (Georgia Institute of TechnologyHermès, 1990-07)
      This paper concerns the suppression of the vibration of a large flexible robot by inertial forces of a small robot which is located at the tip of the large robot. A controller for generating damping forces to a large ...
    • Robot vibrations 

      Book, Wayne John (Georgia Institute of TechnologyAcademic Press, 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 ...
    • Robot-assisted Surgery: A Platform for New Technologies and Algorithms 

      Jarc, Anthony (2016-09-07)
      Intuitive Surgical is the global leader in the rapidly emerging field of robotic-assisted minimally invasive surgery. To date, skilled surgeons using da Vinci Systems have performed more than 3 million minimally invasive ...
    • Robot-based haptic perception and telepresence for the visually impaired 

      Park, Chung Hyuk (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-06-28)
      With the advancements in medicine and welfare systems, the average life span of modern human beings is expanding, creating a new market for elderly care and assistive technology. Along with the development of assistive ...
    • Robotic and Haptic Manipulation 

      Xiao, Jing (2016-01-20)
      Autonomous manipulation remains one of the most important challenges for robots, especially in cluttered environments with uncertainty and unknowns. Haptic simulation of manipulation is highly desirable for virtual training, ...
