Model-driven software development in robotics : Communication patterns as key for a robotics component model
free download

Vital functions of robots are provided by software and software dominance is still growing. Mastering the software complexity is not only a demanding but also indispensable task towards an operational robot. The importance of identifying and developing software

Socially assistive robotics : Human augmentation versus automation
free download

Robotics development has been driven by the desire to automate work. The possible impli cations of machines doing human work are a topic of ongoing debates. Discussions often center on economic concerns, but another im portant outcome is the impact on human

Medical robotics Regulatory, ethical, and legal considerations for increasing levels of autonomy
free download

From minimally invasive surgery, targeted therapy, and hospital optimization to emergency response, prosthetics, and home assistance, medical robotics represents one of the fastest growing sectors in the medical devices industry. The regulatory, ethical, and legal barriers

Control and robotics remote laboratory for engineering education
free download

The new tools for education of engineering emerged and one of the most promising is a remote rapid control prototyping (RRCP), which is very useful also for control and robotics development in industry and in education. Examples of introductory remote control and

The Kinect sensor in robotics education
free download

This paper deals with education in the field of robot sensing abilities. It briefly introduces the commonly known and used concepts and sensors, but focuses mainly on the recent Kinect sensor. Technical information and background on the Kinect are provided. The last part of

Rawseeds: Robotics advancement through web-publishing of sensorial and elaborated extensive data sets
free download

The absence of standard benchmarks is an ac-knowledged problem in the field of robotics , and is doubly harmful to it. First, it prevents recognition of scientific and technical progress, thus discouraging research and development; second, it prevents new actors (and

Some thoughts on robotics for education
free download

In this paper we formulate some thoughts about use of robotics in education, in particular at college and university level. We argue that, although robotics is used in many universities and courses, its advantages are not necessarily as obvious as we would like to believe

A multidisciplinary model for using robotics in engineering education
free download

The use of robotics to provide hands-on instruction across the various disciplines of engineering and computer science is no longer the prohibitively expensive proposition it once was. With the emergence of inexpensive robot kits that encompass a background in

Noncommensurate systems in robotics
free download

In certain areas of science and technology, physical quantities of different natures are combined in a variety of involved mathematical processes that obscure the interaction of these physical units and sometimes lead to unreliable results. Noncommensurate systems

Tekkotsu: A framework for AIBO cognitive robotics
free download

Cognitive robotics is an approach to robot programming that draws inspiration from ideas in cognitive science, such as visual routines (Ullman 1984), dual-coding representations (Paivio 1986), and perceivable affordances (Gibson 1977; 1979). We have implemented

The wheels on the bot go round and round: Robotics curriculum in pre-kindergarten
free download

This paper qualitatively examines the implementation of an intensive weeklong robotics curriculum in three Pre-Kindergarten classrooms (N= 37) at an early childhood STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) focused magnet school in the Harlem area of

Arrangements and their applications in robotics : Recent developments
free download

We survey a collection of recent combinatorial and algorithmic results in the study of arrangements of lowdegree algebraic surface patches in three or higher dimensions. The new results extend known results involving 2-dimensional arrangements, and they almost

Applying Agent Oriented Software Engineering to Cooperative Robotics .
free download

This paper reports our progress in applying multiagent systems analysis and design techniques to autonomous robotics applications. In this paper, we apply the Multiagent Systems Engineering (MaSE) methodology to design a team of autonomous, heterogeneous

A Low-Cost Educational Platform for Swarm Robotics .
free download

Swarm robotics usually involves a large number of robots, dealing with the emergence of intelligent collective behaviors based on local interactions, thus mimicking collective behaviors found in biological societies (eg ants, bees, bacteria, etc.). Therefore, both

Behavior Chaining-Incremental Behavior Integration for Evolutionary Robotics .
free download

One of the open problems in autonomous robotics is how to consistently and scalably integrate new behaviors into a robot with an existing behavioral repertoire. In this work a new technique called behavior chaining is introduced, which allows for gradually expanding

Geometric problems in molecular biology and robotics .
free download

Some of the geometric problems of interest to molecular biologists have macroscopic analogues in the field of robotics . Two examples of such analogies are those between protein docking and model-based perception, and between ring closure and inverse

More than robots: An evaluation of the first robotics competition participant and institutional impacts
free download

The FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) is a high school robotics program designed to build not only science and technology skills and interests, but also self-confidence, leadership, and life skills among high school-aged youth. The FIRST Robotics Competition challenges

Educational robotics as an inovative educational technology
free download

The problem of introducing the educational robotics into practical work of Russian secondary schools has been analyzed. Preferential development of technical creativity of students in robotics is pointed out in additional education system. The practice of introducing

International space station robotics : a comparative study of ERA, JEMRMS and MSS
