A 3D motion planning framework for snake robots
This paper presents a motion planning framework for three-dimensional body shape control of snake robots. Whereas conventional motion planning approaches define the body shape of snake robots in terms of their individual ...
Motion Compensation System for a Free Floating Surface Effect Ship
This paper deals with vertical motion compensation, or motion damping, on a freefloating Surface Effect Ship (SES) at zero speed. The Motion Compensation System (MCS) works by varying the air cushion pressure of a Surface ...
Mamba - A waterproof snake robot with tactile sensing
This paper presents the snake robot Mamba, which is a modular, reconfigurable, and waterproof experimental platform developed to support the ongoing research on snake robot locomotion, including underwater locomotion. A ...
Design and control of precision drop-on-demand herbicide application in agricultural robotics
Drop-on-demand weed control is a field of research within Precision Agriculture, where the herbicide application is controlled down to individual droplets. This paper focuses on the fluid dynamics and electronics design ...
