Advances in robotics are occurring every day, from improved sensing and control algorithms to the development of flexible coverings capable of tactile sensing (i.e., sensing touch).
Now that you have had a chance to explore critical concepts and topics associated with robotic system design, development, and use, consider how the application of advanced robotics principles are exhibited in the development or usage of the latest generation of robotic systems.
Identify three distinct robotic systems and describe a specific aspect of the system that exhibits the use of kinematics, autonomy, or path planning (cover one principle, per example system). For example, discuss the details of how a: 1) 3-DOF robotic arm uses kinematics and calculation (inverse vs forward kinematics) to determine end effector positioning in three-dimensional space; 2) an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) uses autonomous functionality and calculation to perform â€œroute followingâ€; and 3) an unmanned aircraft system (UAS) uses inertial measurement (e.g., accelerometers and gyroscopes) and navigation aids (GPS and/or beacons) to determine localized position and orientation and calculate necessary control changes to maintain course.
For each system make sure to:
- Describe limitations and constraints (what is it unable to do, or what prevents optimal functionality).
- Identify example applications (missions) the system can be used to support.
- Propose a new mission the system could perform.
Make sure to properly cite materials, including peer reviewed journal articles, conference papers, government reports, and manufacturer specifications (at least five, in the current APA format). no outline is needed.
