Genetic algorithm-based compliant robot path planning: an improved Bi-RRT-based initialization method

Du Lin, Bo Shen, Yurong Liu, Fuad E. Alsaadi, Ahmed Alsaedi

The purpose of this paper is to improve the performance of the genetic algorithm-based compliant robot path planning (GACRPP) in complex dynamic environment by proposing…

Fixed-time compliant motion/force control of robotic manipulators with environmental constraints

Chao Ma

The purpose of this paper is to design a new compliant motion/force control strategy for robotic manipulators with environmental constraints in the sense of fixed-time stability.

Feature fusion using Extended Jaccard Graph and word embedding for robot

Shenglan Liu, Muxin Sun, Xiaodong Huang, Wei Wang, Feilong Wang

Robot vision is a fundamental device for human–robot interaction and robot complex tasks. In this paper, the authors aim to use Kinect and propose a feature graph fusion…

Insertion force analysis of compliantly supported peg-in-hole assembly

Nagarajan Pitchandi, Saravana Perumaal Subramanian, Muhilan Irulappan

This paper aims to estimate the required insertion force and to analyze the influence of damping in a compliantly supported chamfered peg-in-hole assembly under dynamic conditions.

Impedance control of a cable-driven SEA with mixed H2/H∞ synthesis

Ningbo Yu, Wulin Zou

This paper aims to present an impedance control method with mixed H2/H synthesis and relaxed passivity for a cable-driven series elastic actuator to be applied for…

Learning control of flexible manipulator with unknown dynamics

Zhiguang Chen, Chenguang Yang, Xin Liu, Min Wang
