  • Detecting humans in the robot workspace
    • Pages: 689 - 694
      Abstract: Industrial Robot: An International Journal, Volume 44, Issue 6, Page 689-694, October 2017.
      Purpose This paper aims to provide a technical insight into a selection of robotic people detection technologies and applications. Design/methodology/approach Following an introduction, this paper first discusses people-sensing technologies which seek to extend the capabilities of human-robot collaboration by allowing humans to operate alongside conventional, industrial robots. It then provides examples of developments in people detection and tracking in unstructured, dynamic environments. Developments in people sensing and monitoring by assistive robots are then considered and finally, brief concluding comments are drawn. Findings Robotic people detection technologies are the topic of an extensive research effort and are becoming increasingly important, as growing numbers of robots interact directly with humans. These are being deployed in industry, in public places and in the home. The sensing requirements vary according to the application and range from simple person detection and avoidance to human motion tracking, behaviour and safety monitoring, individual recognition and gesture sensing. Sensing technologies include cameras, lasers and ultrasonics, and low cost RGB-D cameras are having a major impact. Originality/value This article provides details of a range of developments involving people sensing in the important and rapidly developing field of human-robot interactions.

  • The Pransky interview: Dr Jun Ho Oh, Professor and Director of Humanoid
           Robot Research Center, KAIST; Cofounder, Rainbow Robotics Co.
    • Pages: 695 - 699
      Abstract: Industrial Robot: An International Journal, Volume 44, Issue 6, Page 695-699, October 2017.
      Purpose The following paper is a “Q&A interview” conducted by Joanne Pransky of Industrial Robot Journal as a method to impart the combined technological, business and personal experience of a prominent, robotic industry PhD-turned-entrepreneur regarding the commercialization and challenges of bringing a technological invention to market. This paper aims to discuss these issues. Design/methodology/approach The interviewee is Dr Jun Ho Oh, Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) and Director of KAIST’s Hubolab. Determined to build a humanoid robot in the early 2000s to compete with Japan’s humanoids, Dr Oh and KAIST created the KHR1. This research led to seven more advanced versions of a biped humanoid robot and the founding of the Robot for Artificial Intelligence and Boundless Walking (Rainbow) Co., a professional technological mechatronics company. In this interview, Dr Oh shares the history and success of Korea’s humanoid robot research. Findings Dr Oh received his BSc in 1977 and MSc in Mechanical Engineering in 1979 from Yonsei University. Oh worked as a Researcher for the Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute before receiving his PhD from the University of California (UC) Berkeley in mechanical engineering in 1985. After his PhD, Oh remained at UC Berkeley to do Postdoctoral research. Since 1985, Oh has been a Professor of Mechanical Engineering at KAIST. He was a Visiting Professor from 1996 to 1997 at the University of Texas Austin. Oh served as the Vice President of KAIST from 2013-2014. In addition to teaching, Oh applied his expertise in robotics, mechatronics, automatic and real-time control to the commercial development of a series of humanoid robots. Originality/value Highly self-motivated and always determined, Dr Oh’s initial dream of building the first Korean humanoid bipedal robot has led him to become one of the world leaders of humanoid robots. He has contributed widely to the field over the nearly past two decades with the development of five versions of the HUBO robot. Oh led Team KAIST to win the 2015 DARPA Robotics Challenge (DRC) and a grand prize of US$2m with its humanoid robot DRC-HUBO+, beating 23 teams from six countries. Oh serves as a robotics policy consultant for the Korean Ministry of Commerce Industry and Energy. He was awarded the 2016 Changjo Medal for Science and Technology, the 2016 Ho-Am Prize for engineering, and the 2010 KAIST Distinguished Professor award. He is a member of the Korea Academy of Science and Technology.

  • Human robot interaction for manipulation tasks based on stroke gesture
           recognition
    • Pages: 700 - 710
      Abstract: Industrial Robot: An International Journal, Volume 44, Issue 6, Page 700-710, October 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to extend the usage of stroke gestures in manipulation tasks to make the interaction between human and robot more efficient. Design/methodology/approach In this paper, a set of stroke gestures is designed for typical manipulation tasks.

  • Mechanical design and error prediction of a flexible manipulator system
           applied in nuclear fusion environment
    • Pages: 711 - 719
      Abstract: Industrial Robot: An International Journal, Volume 44, Issue 6, Page 711-719, October 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to introduce a development and error modeling of a serial redundant manipulator system applied in nuclear fusion environment. Detailed mechanical design of vacuum-compatible arms and actuators are presented, and manipulator flexibility is studied through experiments and model identification algorithm to evaluate the deformation. Design/methodology/approach First, the manipulator is designed to be several modular segments to obtain enough and flexible workspace inside the fusion device with narrow and complex geometries. Joint actuators with “rotation-linear-rotation” chains are developed to provide both huge reduction ratios and vacuum sealing. The redundant manipulator system has 11 degree of freedoms in total with a storage cask system to dock with the device vacuum vessel. In addition, to improve the position accuracy, an error prediction model is built based on the experimental study and back-propagation neural network (BPNN) algorithm. Findings Currently, the implementation of the manipulator system has been successfully carried out in both atmosphere and vacuum condition. Excellent performance indicates that the mechanical design is suitable. The validation of BPNN model shows an acceptable prediction accuracy (94∼98 per cent) compared with the real measurement. Originality/value This is a special robot system which is practically used in a nuclear fusion device in China. It will allow remote inspection and maintenance of plasma facing components in the vacuum vessel of fusion device without breaking the ultra-high vacuum condition during physical experiments. Its design, mechanism and error prediction strategy have great reference values to the similar robots in vacuum and temperature applications.

  • The vibratory alignment of the parts in robotic assembly
    • Pages: 720 - 729
      Abstract: Industrial Robot: An International Journal, Volume 44, Issue 6, Page 720-729, October 2017.
      Purpose This paper aims to consider the experimental and theoretical investigation of the vibratory alignment of the peg-hole, when the peg is fixed in the remote centre compliance (RCC) device, and the vibrations are provided either to the hole or to the peg. Design/methodology/approach The experimental analysis of the circular and rectangular peg-hole vibratory alignment using the attached to the robot arm RCC device, under vibratory excitation of the hole, has been performed. The parameters of the vibratory excitation and the part-to-part pressing force influence on the alignment process have been analysed. The mathematical approach of the vibratory alignment using the passive compliance device with the vibrations provided to the peg has been proposed, and the simulation has been carried out. Findings The research has approved the applicability of the RCC device for both of the vibratory alignments of the non-chamfered peg-hole parts either circular or rectangular ones. The compensation of the axial misalignments has been resulted by the directional displacement of the peg supported compliantly. To perform the successful alignment of the parts, it has been necessary to adjust the frequency and the amplitude of the vibrations, the pressing force, the lateral, as well as the angular stiffness of the device. Research limitations/implications The experiments on the vibratory alignment of the rectangular peg-hole parts have been carried out considering only the translational misalignment moved into one direction. The non-impact regime of the vibratory alignment has been analysed. Practical implications The obtained results can be applied in designing the reliable and efficient devices of the vibratory assembly for the alignment of the non-chamfered peg-hole parts, as well as for chamfered ones, if the axial misalignment exceeds the width of the chamfer. The vibratory technique and passive compliance provide possibility to accomplish the assembly operations using the non-expensive low accuracy robots. Originality/value The new method and the mathematical approach of the vibratory assembly using the RCC device can ensure the reliable alignment of the non-chamfered parts, chamfered circular and the rectangular ones, in case the axial misalignment exceeds the assembly clearance, and prevent jamming and wedging.

  • Study on dual peg-in-hole insertion using of constraints formed in the
           environment
    • Pages: 730 - 740
      Abstract: Industrial Robot: An International Journal, Volume 44, Issue 6, Page 730-740, October 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to develop a dual peg-in-hole insertion strategy. Dual peg-in-hole insertion is the most common task in manufacturing. Most of the previous work develop the insertion strategy in a two- or three-dimensional space, in which they suppose the initial yaw angle is zero and only concern the roll and pitch angles. However, in some case, the yaw angle could not be ignored due to the pose uncertainty of the peg on the gripper. Therefore, there is a need to design the insertion strategy in a higher-dimensional configuration space. Design/methodology/approach In this paper, the authors handle the insertion problem by converting it into several sub-problems based on the attractive region formed by the constraints. The existence of the attractive region in the high-dimensional configuration space is first discussed. Then, the construction of the high-dimensional attractive region with its sub-attractive region in the low-dimensional space is proposed. Therefore, the robotic insertion strategy can be designed in the subspace to eliminate some uncertainties between the dual pegs and dual holes. Findings Dual peg-in-hole insertion is realized without using of force sensors. The proposed strategy is also used to demonstrate the precision dual peg-in-hole insertion, where the clearance between the dual-peg and dual-hole is about 0.02 mm. Practical implications The sensor-less insertion strategy will not increase the cost of the assembly system and also can be used in the dual peg-in-hole insertion. Originality/value The theoretical and experimental analyses for dual peg-in-hole insertion are proposed without using of force sensor.

The proposed correction algorithm can process the image in real time. The experimental results of the improved tracking algorithm are better than the original algorithm. The statistical analysis of the experimental results demonstrates the effectiveness of the system. Originality/value A simple rectification model is proposed, and a local image processing method is used to reduce the computation time in the localization process. A target tracking method is improved to make it suitable for omnidirectional vision system. Using the proposed methods and some existing methods, an omnistereo target tracking and location system is established.

  • Integration of fault tree analysis, reliability block diagram and hazard
           decision tree for industrial robot reliability evaluation
    • Pages: 754 - 764
      Abstract: Industrial Robot: An International Journal, Volume 44, Issue 6, Page 754-764, October 2017.
      Purpose This paper aims to conduct a comprehensive fault tree analysis (FTA) on the critical components of industrial robots. This analysis is integrated with the reliability block diagram (RBD) approach to investigate the robot system reliability. Design/methodology/approach For practical implementation, a particular autonomous guided vehicle (AGV) system was first modeled. Then, FTA was adopted to model the causes of failures, enabling the probability of success to be determined. In addition, RBD was used to simplify the complex system of the AGV for reliability evaluation purpose. Findings Hazard decision tree (HDT) was configured to compute the hazards of each component and the whole AGV robot system. Through this research, a promising technical approach was established, allowing decision-makers to identify the critical components of AGVs along with their crucial hazard phases at the design stage. Originality/value As complex systems have become global and essential in today’s society, their reliable design and determination of their availability have turned into very important tasks for managers and engineers. Industrial robots are examples of these complex systems that are being increasingly used for intelligent transportation, production and distribution of materials in warehouses and automated production lines.

           performance
    • Pages: 765 - 775
      Abstract: Industrial Robot: An International Journal, Volume 44, Issue 6, Page 765-775, October 2017.
      Purpose The global performance of industrial robots partly depends on the properties of drive system consisting of motor inertia, gearbox inertia, etc. This paper aims to deal with the problem of optimization of global dynamic performance for robotic drive system selected from available components. Design/methodology/approach Considering the performance specifications of drive system, an optimization model whose objective function is composed of working efficiency and natural frequency of robots is proposed. Meanwhile, constraints including the rated and peak torque of motor, lifetime of gearbox and light-weight were taken into account. Furthermore, the mapping relationship between discrete optimal design variables and component properties of drive system were presented. The optimization problem with mixed integer variables was solved by a mixed integer-laplace crossover power mutation algorithm. Findings The optimization results show that our optimization model and methods are applicable, and the performances are also greatly promoted without sacrificing any constraints of drive system. Besides, the model fits the overall performance well with respect to light-weight ratio, safety, cost reduction and others. Practical implications The proposed drive system optimization method has been used for a 4-DOF palletizing robot, which has been largely manufactured in a factory. Originality/value This paper focuses on how the simulation-based optimization can be used for the purpose of generating trade-offs between cost, performance and lifetime when designing robotic drive system. An applicable optimization model and method are proposed to handle the dynamic performance optimization problem of a drive system for industrial robot.

  • Effect of links deformation on motion precision of parallel manipulator
           based on flexible dynamics
    • Pages: 776 - 787
      Abstract: Industrial Robot: An International Journal, Volume 44, Issue 6, Page 776-787, October 2017.
      Purpose Manipulator motion accuracy is a fundamental requirement for precision manufacturing equipment. Light weight manipulators in high speed motions are vulnerable to deformations. The purpose of this work is to analyze the effect of link deformation on the motion precision of parallel manipulators. Design/methodology/approach The flexible dynamics model of the links is first established by applying the Euler–Bernoulli beam theory and the assumed modal method. The rigid-flexible coupling equations of the parallel mechanism are further derived by using the Lagrange multiplier approach. The elastic energy resulting from spiral motion and link deformations are computed and analyzed. Motion errors of the 3-link torque-prismatic-torque parallel manipulator are then evaluated based on its inverse kinematics. The validation experiments are also conducted to verify the numerical results. Findings The lateral deformation and axial deformation are largest at the middle of the driven links. The axial deformation at the middle of the driven link is approximately one-tenth of the transversal deformation. However, the elastic potential energy of the transversal deformation is much smaller than the elastic force generated from axial deformation. Practical implications Knowledge on the relationship between link deformation and motion precision is useful in the design of parallel manipulators for high performing dynamic responses. Originality/value This work establishes the relationship between motion precision and the amount of link deformation in parallel manipulators.

           point cloud modeling – a case study
    • Pages: 788 - 797
      Abstract: Industrial Robot: An International Journal, Volume 44, Issue 6, Page 788-797, October 2017.
      Purpose In an industrial robotic cell, the optimal layout planning problem needs critical analysis, as it indirectly affects the manufacturing time and cost involved in the production process. This paper aims to propose a generic three-step robotic cell layout planning method and aims to enhance the adaptability of robotic manufacturing cell in small-scale industries. Design/methodology/approach The method uses the data generated from the point cloud modeling and simulation of the objects (machines and robot) to optimize their positions and orientations in the cell. The simulated annealing algorithm has been used to solve the optimization problem with minimum joint displacement criterion. This approach is critically analyzed and discussed against the data collected from an industrial robotic cell in a foundry shop of a pipe manufacturing industry. Findings More than 50 per cent reduction in the net joint movement of the robot has been achieved. Immediate feedback of the results by a three-dimensional view of the optimal cell layout without using any commercial robotic simulation package. Originality/value The layout optimization of an industrial robotic cell based on the point cloud modeling of its objects is the novelty of the method.

  • Measurement of wheel-terrain contact angle for WMRs on rough terrain using
           laser scanning sensor
    • Pages: 798 - 807
      Abstract: Industrial Robot: An International Journal, Volume 44, Issue 6, Page 798-807, October 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to explore a novel measurement approach for wheel-terrain contact angle using laser scanning sensors based on near-terrain perception. Laser scanning sensors have rarely been applied to the measurement of wheel-terrain contact angle for wheeled mobile robots (WMRs) in previous studies; however, it is an effective way to measure wheel-terrain contact angle directly with the advantages of simple, fast and high accuracy. Design/methodology/approach First, kinematics model for a WMR moving on rough terrain was developed, taking into consideration wheel slip and wheel-terrain contact angle. Second, the measurement principles of wheel-terrain contact angle using laser scanning sensors was presented, including “rigid wheel - rigid terrain” model and “rigid wheel - deformable terrain” model. Findings In the proposed approach, the measurement of wheel-terrain contact angle using laser scanning sensors was successfully demonstrated. The rationality of the approach was verified by experiments on rigid and sandy terrains with satisfactory results. Originality/value This paper proposes a novel, fast and effective wheel-terrain contact angle measurement approach for WMRs moving on both rigid and deformable terrains, using laser scanning sensors.
