Speech Title: Socially Assistive Intelligent Robots Operating in Human Environments
Abstract: The research on intelligent robots will produce robots that are able to operate in everyday life environments, to adapt their policy as environment changes, and to cooperate with other team members and humans. Operating in human environments the robots have to be process in real time a large number of sensory data such as vision, laser, microphone, in order to determine the best action. Learning and evolution have been proved to give good results generating a good mapping of various sensory data to robot action. In this talk, I will overview the existing efforts including our attempts at creating intelligent robots operating in everyday life environments. In particular, I will focus on remotely operating surveillance robot, robot navigation in urban environments, and assistive humanoid robot. I will show experimental results that demonstrate the effectiveness of proposed algorithms.

Speech Title: Recent Advances in Motion Control of Parallel Kinematic Manipulators
Abstract: Serial robot manipulators consist of a set of sequentially connected links, forming an open kinematic chain. These robots are mainly characterized by their large workspace and their high dexterity. However, despite these advantages, in order to perform tasks requiring high speeds/accelerations and/or high precision; such robots are not always recommended because of their lack of stiffness and accuracy. Indeed, parallel kinematic manipulators (PKMs) are more suitable for such tasks. The main idea of their mechanical structure consists in using at least two kinematic chains linking the fixed base to the travelling plate, where each of these chains contains at least one actuator. This may allow a good distribution of the load between the chains. PKMs have important advantages with respect to their serial counterparts in terms of stiffness, speed, accuracy and payload. However, these robots are characterized by their highly nonlinear dynamics, kinematic redundancy, uncertainties, actuation redundancy, singularities, etc. Besides, when interested in high-speed robotized repetitive tasks, such as food packaging applications, the key idea lies in looking for short cycle-times. This means obviously to look for short motion and short stabilization times while guaranteeing the robustness and performance with respect to disturbances and changes/uncertainties in the operational conditions. Consequently, if we are interested in control of such robots, all these issues should be taken into account, which makes it a bit challenging task. This talk will give an overview of some proposed advanced control solutions for high-speed applications of PKMs in food packaging and machining tasks. The proposed solutions are mainly borrowed from nonlinear robust and adaptive control techniques and have been validated through real-time experiments on different PKM prototypes and in different operating conditions.
