In the last three decades, the field of robotics knows great flourish and acceptance, both at research level and application in everyday life.  Nowadays, the rapid evolution appears from the applications and the deployment of almost all over the world and from the research results. Countries such as Japan, US and Western and Eastern European countries, which have made significant progress to research and to technology, constitute the basic core of support and development of…

A tele-supervised autonomous robot needs to have accurate information on its position, orientation, and velocity and the location of nearby obstacles (sensory system). The robot needs multiple sensors to gather all the information required and a computer to read the sensor data and make decisions based on it. Information on the robot’s environment can be acquired using laser distance sensors, ultrasonic distance sensors, infrared distance sensors or cameras utilizing machine vision. Other methods are also available, but they are…

After almost 2 months of hard work… the results of the five legged (pentapod) robotic platform are acceptable. For the development of this all-terrain robotic platform, i am using two ARM Cortex M4 microcontrollers using a Real-time Operating System (RTOS) as well as a simple sensory system. The communication between the microcontrollers was established using the Controller Area Network (CAN) protocol as well as a novel encryption/validation messaging protocol above it. Moreover, a novel memory allocation scheme was analyzed and…

Robotics technology is used in a wide range of industries including automotive, healthcare, aerospace, infrastructure and defense. They can be used for numerous activities The increasing need of automation solutions is a factor that drives the international market. Manufacturers are increasingly opting for process automation, owing to the rise in labor costs and market competition. A dynamic rise in the number of smartphones and tablets supplements the process of robot development and contributes to the…

Robots are mechanical or virtual artificial agents, usually electro-mechanical machines which are controlled by a computer program or electronic circuitry. There are separated into different categories depending on their functionality. Most popular robots are placed in hazardous places because these robots perform the tasks that humans are not able to access. Some robots(autonomous robots) can operate by themselves and other robots always need guidance from humans to perform the tasks. They are used in various fields…
