In certain applications including space and surgical robotics, the desire is to use small,thin and lightweight robots and cable-driven end-effectors. Space robots are designed to be lightweight and compact for minimum liftoff cost and energy consumption during robot control, and therefore involve flexibility. Also, in surgical robots, thin instruments are used for minimal invasiveness, which brings about advantages such as reduced trauma to the body, post-operative pain and length of hospital stay. Due to the limited space and the small diameter of the instruments, actuation of a distal wrist that is used for dexterity is performed from outside the patient and propagated to the wrist through flexible cables.

Android is a mobile operating system developed by Google and is based upon a modified version of the Linux kernel. It was initially developed by Android Inc. (a firm purchased by Google) and later positioned in the Open Handset Aliance.
The Android operating system software stack consists of Java applications running on a Java based object oriented application framework on top of Java core libraries running on a Dalvik virtual machine featuring JIT compilation. Libraries written in C include the surface manager, OpenCore media framework, SQLite relational database menagement system, OpenGL ES 2.0 3D graphics API, WebKit layout engine, SGL graphics engine, SSL, and Bionic libc. The Android operating system consists of 12 million lines of code including 3 million lines of XML, 2.8 million lines of C, 2.1 million lines of Java, and 1.75 million lines of C++.

SBC2440 is a highly intergrated development board. CPU employs Samsung S3C2440 micro-processor (ARM20T kernel, 16 Kbyte data buffer, 16 Kbyte instruction buffer, 400Mhz frequency, MMU (Memory Managenment Unit), embedded 4Kbyte SRAM ). It provides multiple memory modes, i.e., 64MB SDRAM, 64MB NANDFLASH, SD card ( a card memory device) interface, USB interface. It provides multiple communication interface modes, i.e.: 10/100M Ethernet, 3-channel serial port, 1-channel USB Host( SBC2440 can be configured as 2-channel USB Host), 1-channel USB Device. Diverse memory modes and diverse communication modes provide user with more flexible applications for the development

The RT actuator based on mechanically controlled stiffness was developed at the Biorobotics Laboratory in Korea. The advantages of RT actuator are that the control of position and stiffness can be fully independent. By using four springs, the RT actuator has fast dynamic response, wide range of stiffness. In this video, we show how the RT actuator work and safety in collision with humanoid robot.

The robot that we have here is a wheeled robot. It has two wheels. It navigates with a differentially steered drive system. If one wheel is rotating faster, the robot will make a curved path. If both wheels are on the same speed, it will make a straight path.

In the real control system, uncertainties are unavoidable. The uncertainty can be classified into two categories: disturbance signals and dynamic perturbations. The former includes input and output disturbance, sensor noise and actuator noise,...The latter represents the discrepancy between the mathematical model and the actual dynamics of the system in operation. A mathematical model of any real system is always just an approximation of the true, physical reality of the system dynamics. Typical sources of the discrepancy include unmodelled (usually high-frequency ) dynamics, neglected nonlinearities in the modelling, effects of deliberate reduced-order models, and sytem-parameter variations due to environmental changes and torn-and-worn factors. These modelling errors may adversely affect the stability and performance of a control system.

6-DOF Manipulator Modeling
Last Updated on Sunday, 03 October 2010 03:16 Sunday, 13 June 2010 12:38
The controller area network (CAN) uses a serial multimaster communication protocol that efficiently supports distributed real-time control, with a very high level of security, and a communication rate of up to 1 Mbps. The CAN bus is ideal for applications operating in noisy and harsh environments, such as in the automatice and other industrial fields that require reliable communication. Prioritized messages of up to eight bytes in data length can be sent on a multimaster serial bus using an arbitration protocol and an error-detection mechanism for a high level of data integrity .

Flexible manipulator systems (FMSs) offer several advantages in contrast to the traditrional rigid ones. These include faster system response, lower enery consumption, requiring relatively smaller actuators, reduced non-linearity due to elimination of gearing, less overall mass and, in general, less overall cost. However, owing to the distributed nature of the governing equations describing system dynamics, the control of flexible manipulator has traditionally involved complex processes.
