Review Article Volume 3 Issue 1

Humankind Engineering and Management: Robotic Track

Authors: RC Michelini Di San Martino

Abstract: The urbane behaviours distinguish men, from the other living beings. After birth, the human babies receive education and training, teaching to them the ‹civic modes› of ‹cultured› and ‹ethical› persons. The children, this way, develop abstraction talent, creating ‹knowledge›, ‹relational› backing for ‹idiom›, ‹trade› and ‹authority›. These three are ‹interpersonal› inventions built by the human ‹intellect›, i.e., by ‹mind› interactions through ‹meme fruition›.

Development of a Human-Robot-Collaboration System using the Example of a Riveting Process in Aircraft Assembly

Authors: Rainer Muller, Matthias Vette, Aaron Geenen, Ali Kanso and Tobias Masiak

Abstract: Assembly processes in aircraft production are particularly difficult to automate due to a variety of technical challenges including, small batch sizes, large product dimensions, small tolerances, and limited work space. Fully automated systems are expensive and require a large amount of servicing effort during their life time.

The Turing Test and Android Science

Authors: Gilberto Marzano

Abstract: As is well-known, Turing's classic test was based on the simultaneous comparison by an interrogator of two hidden entities, one being human and the other being a machine. If the interrogator, who was human, was not able to correctly identify the responders by saying for certain which one was the machine and which was the human the machine passed the test and one could claim that it exhibited an intelligent behavior.

Inchworm Inspired Pneumatic Soft Robot Based on Friction Hysteresis

Authors: Jinqiang Ning, Chaoyang Ti and Yuxiang Liu

Abstract: In this paper, we present an inchworm-inspired pneumatic soft robot that requires only one degree-of-freedom control to generate continuous linear locomotion on various surfaces.

Performance Analysis for Coupled - Tank System Liquid Level Control Using MPC, PI and PI-plus-Feedforward Control Scheme

Authors: Auwal Shehu Tijjani, Muhammad Auwal Shehu, Ali Mohsen Alsabari and Yusuf A Sambo

Abstract: The Coupled-Tank (CT) system remains an important tool for research by process control engineers. In this paper, we have addressed the issue of performance analysis of three control schemes, PI (based on pole placement, ZN and Ciancone correlation tuning methods), PI-plus-feedforward and MPC which have not been done in the present literatures.

Short Commentary Volume 1 Issue 1

Should Robotics Need Ethical Codes? Robotics and ERP

Authors: Yu-Cheng Tang

Abstract: This commentary asks how to provide a role for robotics in automating key transactional Enterprise Resources Planning (ERP) designing processes, and how to integrate ethical considerations into robotic decision making.

Virtual and Rapid Prototyping of an Underactuated Space End Effector

Authors: Marco Sabatini, Nicola Palumbo, Paolo Gasbarri and Giovanni Palmerini

Abstract: A fast and reliable verification of an initial concept is an important need in the field of mechatronics. Usually, the steps for a successful design require multiple iterations involving a sequence of design phases-the initial one and several improvements-and the tests of the resulting prototypes, in a trial and error scheme.

Disparities in Robotic Surgery for Gastrointestinal Cancers

Authors: Bonnie S Berkley and Emmanuel Gabriel

Abstract: The use of robotics in surgery has increased significantly in the last decade from its initial applications in urologic procedures. Robotic surgery has been increasingly utilized not only for urologic and gynecologic procedures, but also in other gastrointestinal disease sites, particularly for cancers of the rectum, pancreas, stomach, and esophagus. As the use of robotic surgery becomes more widespread for gastrointestinal malignancies and the potential benefits of this approach become better defined, an understanding of disparities in access and availability of robotic surgery across different racial and socioeconomic factors is increasingly relevant.

Robust Adaptive Gaussian Mixture Sigma Point Particle Filter

Authors: Haifeng Yan, Bingbing Gao, Shesheng Gao, Li Xue, Yongmin Zhong , Chengfan Gu and Reza Jazar

Abstract: This paper presents a new robust adaptive Gaussian mixture sigma-point particle filter by adopting the concept of robust adaptive estimation to the Gaussian mixture sigma-point particle filter. This method approximates state mean and covariance via Sigma-point transformation combined with new available measurement information. It enables the estimations of state mean and covariance to be adjusted via the equivalent weight function and adaptive factor, thus restraining the disturbances of singular measurements and kinematic model noise.
