  2. A 3-D Miniature LIDAR System for Mobile Robot Navigation

    SBC: Honeybee Robotics, Ltd.            Topic: X703

    Future lunar site operations will benefit from mobile robots, both autonomous and tele-operated, that complement or replace human extravehicular activity. Three-dimensional sensing technology is at the heart of such functionality, enabling reliable navigation in complex, dynamic environments, and serving as a valuable tool for inspection and site survey. Honeybee Robotics is therefore developing ...

  7. A METHOD OF IMPROVING THE DYNAMIC PERFORMANCE OF TELEROBOTICS SYSTEMS

    SBC: Convolve Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DEVELOP AN APPROACH THATCOMMANDS TELEROBOTS TO MOVE WITH GREATLY INCREASED DYNAMIC PERFORMANCE. THIS PERFORMANCE INCREASE WILL BE ACHIEVED BY ELIMINATING THE EXCITATION OF OSCILLATIONS IN THE MACHINE. SETTLING TIME, THEREFORE, WILL BE SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCED. THE FEASIBILITY OF A NEW TECHNIQUE CALLED IMPULSE SHAPING WILL BE INVESTIGATED. A RUDIMENTARY VERSION OF T ...
