• Contact Control for Advanced Applications of Light Weight Arms 

      Book, Wayne John; Kwon, Dong-Soo (Georgia Institute of TechnologyKluwer Academic Publishers, 1992)
      Many applications of robotic and teleoperated manipulator arms require operation in contact and noncontact regimes. This paper deals with both regimes and the transition between them with special attention given to problems ...
    • Force reflecting teleoperation with adaptive impedance control 

      Love, Lonnie J.; Book, Wayne John (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2004-02)
      Experimentation and a survey of the literature clearly show that contact stability in a force reflecting teleoperation system requires high levels of damping on the master robot. However, excessive damping increases the ...
    • An investigation of a passively controlled haptic interface 

      Davis, Hurley T.; Book, Wayne John (Georgia Institute of TechnologyAmerican Nuclear Society, 1997)
      Haptic interfaces enhance cooperation between humans and robotic manipulators by providing force and tactile feedback to the human user during the execution of arbitrary tasks. The use of active actuators in haptic displays ...
