Nonholonomic source seeking in switching random fields
We consider the problem of designing controllers for nonholonomic mobile robots converging to the source (minimum) of a field. In addition to the mobility constraints posed by the ...

A Direct Physical Interface for Navigation and Positioning of a Robotic Nursing Assistant
People often use direct physical contact to guide a person to a desired location (e.g., leading a child by the hand) or to adjust a person’s posture for a task (e.g., a dance in...

From motion planning to trajectory control with bounded jerk for service manipulator robots
To build autonomous robots capable to plan and control tasks in human environments, we need a description of trajectories that allows the robot to reason on his moves. In this pape...
