  • [25 Years Ago]
    • Pages: 11 - 12
      Abstract: This paper considers the development of a new high power/weight and power/volume braided pneumatic muscle actuator (PMA) having considerable power output potential, combined with controllable motion and inherent compliance to prevent damage to handled objects. Control of these muscles is explored via adaptive pole-placement controllers. Experimental results indicate that accurate position control of 1 deg is feasible, with power/weight outputs in excess of 1 kW/kg at 200kPa.

  • The Robotarium: Globally Impactful Opportunities, Challenges, and Lessons
           Learned in Remote-Access, Distributed Control of Multirobot Systems
    • Authors: Sean Wilson;Paul Glotfelter;Li Wang;Siddharth Mayya;Gennaro Notomista;Mark Mote;Magnus Egerstedt;
      Pages: 26 - 44
      Abstract: Distributed control has emerged as a major focus in the systems and controls area, with multiagent robotics playing a prominent role both as a canonical instantiation of a system, where control decisions must be made by individual nodes across an information-exchange network, and as a rich source of applications [1]-[5]. These applications include environmental monitoring [6], collective materials handling [7], construction [8], disaster response [9], and precision agriculture [10].

  • Explaining the Routh–Hurwitz Criterion: A Tutorial Presentation
           [Focus on Education]
    • Authors: Marc Bodson;
      Pages: 45 - 51
      Abstract: Routh's treatise [1] was a landmark in the analysis of the stability of dynamic systems and became a core foundation of control theory. The remarkable simplicity of the result was in stark contrast to the challenge of the proof. Many researchers devoted much effort to extend the result to singular cases, with some of the earlier techniques shown to be inadequate [2]. Together with the extensions to singular cases, shorter proofs were also proposed. The proof of [3] is noteworthy, which followed the root locus arguments of [4]. A key feature of the proof is a continuity argument used in an earlier derivation [5]. In [6], the more conventional approach using Cauchy's principle of the argument is followed. A relatively simple proof is proposed, considering the extension to complex polynomials and singular cases.

  • Robotics, Vision and Control: Fundamental Algorithms in MATLAB, Second
           Edition [Bookshelf]
    • Authors: Jarvis Schultz;Kevin Lynch;
      Pages: 52 - 54
      Abstract: The second edition of this book covers an impressively broad array of important topics in robotics and computer vision. The book’s presentation style is approachable and engaging, not dense nor intimidating, and the material should be accessible to most upper-level, undergraduate engineering and computer science students. Each chapter combines foundational material, historical vignettes, colorful figures, descriptions of current technology, and software examples to help the reader quickly grasp the context, main ideas, and applications; this approach makes the book an excellent reference source. A nice feature is that, for many sections, it is possible to flip directly to that section and grasp the key ideas without having to read all of the material that comes before it. Due to the breadth of the material covered, this book can be used as a textbook for multiple courses in robotics and computer vision. The text sacrifices some mathematical details and derivations in favor of an example-driven, learn-by-doing treatment. Therefore, the instructor may wish to supplement the book with other sources that go into more detail on the fundamentals. This book is an introduction to both computational inverse problems and uncertainty quantification (UQ) for inverse problems. The text discusses more advanced material on Bayesian methods and UQ, including Markov chain Monte Carlo sampling methods for UQ in inverse problems. Each chapter contains the Matlab code, which implements the algorithms and generates the figures as well as a large number of exercises. This material is intended for graduate students, researchers, and applied scientists. It is appropriate for use with courses on computational inverse problems, Bayesian methods for inverse problems, and UQ methods for inverse problems.
