Steel Climbing Robot for Steel Bridge Inspection
Background One of the most important causes of deterioration of steel bridges is corrosion, which causes section loss or cracks in the steel. For some critical components of a steel bridge, it could cause the collapse of the whole bridge. To prevent this, the most common approach to steel bridge inspection is visual inspection by inspectors with inspection...

Hybrid human/robot coordinated joint motion control architecture for application in unstructured environments involving iterative or repetitive tasks
Robotics used in the manufacturing industry cannot be aptly applied in machinery operations that require complex operations and variable tasks or a changing environment that is unstructured and requires ongoing adjustment. The University of Nevada, Reno's Coordinated Joint Motion Control (JMC) architecture allows for artificial intelligence enhanced...

Embedded, Dynamic Model Identification for Differential Machine Motion
Background While implementation of a forward kinematics in a machine, it is difficult to follow a task using sensors and actuators, which are usually considered imperfect. Controlling heavy machines with the help of hydraulic adds another difficulty to the efficiency of the actuators. To avoid such difficulty and also for energy loss reduction, mobile...
