Structural synthesis of 2R1T type mechanisms for minimally invasive surgery applications
Assistive and operative manipulators allow easier and more precise operations for minimally invasive surgery. Such manipulators often have a pivot point at the incision port on the pa-tient’s body, so the manipulator should ...
Neural network based repetitive learning control of robot manipulators
Control of robot manipulators performing periodic tasks is considered in this work. The control problem is complicated by presence of uncertainties in the robot manipulator's dynamic model. To address this restriction, a ...
A geometrical approach for the singularity analysis of a 3-RRS parallel manipulator
Identifying singularity manifolds of parallel manipulators analytically is a hard task due to their complex kinematics and passive joints. This study proposes to use the geometrical conditions of singularities in order to ...
On null-space control of kinematically redundant robot manipulators
In this study, we consider the null-space control problem of redundant robot manipulators. Specifically for robot manipulators with kinematically redundancy where at least one extra degree of freedom is present, we introduce ...
Teleoperation control of a redundant continuum manipulator using a non-redundant rigid-link master
In this paper, teleoperated control of a kinematically redundant, continuum slave manipulator with a non-redundant, rigid-link master system is considered. This problem is novel because the self-motion of the redundant ...
Lyapunov-based output feedback learning control of robot manipulators
This paper address the output feedback learning tracking control problem for robot manipulators with repetitive desired joint level trajectories. Specifically, an observer-based output feedback learning controller for ...
