Title: Proceedings of the 2nd international symposium on robotics research

Abstract

The structure of this book does not follow that of the symposium. The 53 papers presented at the 12 technical sessions are grouped into four parts: Visual Perception, Action Control, Robot Mechanisms, and Task Level Studies. There are two chapters in the first part, focusing on these topics in visual perception: representation and recognition of three-dimensional objects; and implementation of robot vision. The two chapters in the second part are concerned with the computational aspects of action control: control theory; and kinematics and design. The two chapters in the third part examine these features of robot mechanisms: manipulators and end effectors; and mobile robots. The two chapters in the fourth part explore the following task level studies: modelling, programming, and monitoring; and theory of manipulation. A final (fifth) part presents in two chapters 9 papers debated at two panel discussions: robotics for future industry; and key issues of robotics research. This final part also includes the 2 panel-discussion summaries.

  • The Third International Symposium in Robotics Research was held in the FAll of 1985 in Gouvieux-Chantilly, France. This book collects 45 papers presented by the 66 participants from the U.S., Japan, and Europe, reflecting the wide variety of research issues currently under exploration. The topics covered include perception (visual and local), action and control, robot mechanisms, and modeling and systems.
  • This book contains papers presented at a symposium on robotics and automation. Topics considered at the symposium included, assessment of feature extraction methods and their vector features, a special processing system for recognition of complex objects, a multi-micro-computer interface for a sensorcontrolled robot manipulator, hierarchical multiprocessor architecture for robot control, knowledge-base system for robot assembly, cautious self-tuning with fuzzy constraints, and an intelligent network generator.
  • Various papers on robotic systems are presented. The topics addressed include: inversion techniques for trajectory control of flexible robot arms, Hamiltonian description and dynamic control of flexible robots, a simple and efficient computational approach for the forward dynamics of elastic robots, and solution schemes for the system equations of flexible robots. Also considered are: a feedforward decoupling concept for the control of elastic robots, self-motion determination based on actuator velocity bounds for redundant manipulators, Cartesian control of redundant robots, and decentralized adaptive control of robot manipulators.
  • A separate abstract was prepared for each of 34 papers presented at this conference. The remaining 14 dealt with primary batteries and did not fall within the subject scope of ERA. (RWR)
  • The 5th EPRI/LRO Lighting Research Symposium (November, 2002) was organized to present and examine current research information on the subject of Light and Human Health in response to a growing sense that light--both electric lighting and daylighting--impacts human beings well beyond what has been traditionally studied as vision and visual performance. This Final Report of the Symposium is a collection of 23 presented and seven poster papers grouped under the following headings: (1) Medical Applications of Light; (2) Circadian Effects of Light; (3) Hazards of Optical Radiation; and (4) Environmental Applications and Human Factors. Research from the medical, measurement, elderly,more » lighting, psychological, and vision fields is included, as well as an extensive commentary and summary. The direction of the research, taken as a whole, indicates that the definition of ''good lighting'' should be expanded to include ''healthy lighting,'' and that ongoing research will require better measurement and specification tools such as a new system of circadian photometry. Enhanced interaction between the medical research and lighting design communities will be required to bring the benefits of what is being discovered into common lighting practice.« less
