This paper presents the design, model and closed-loop control of a single degree-of-freedom (DOF) lightweight robotic arm actuated by a biased Shape Memory Alloy (SMA) wire. The highly non-linear dynamics of SMAs represent a challenge for control tas... Read More about Adaptive control for a lightweight robotic arm actuated by a shape memory allow wire..

Journal Article
DENTLER, J., KANNAN, S., BEZZAOUCHA, S., OLIVARES-MENDEZ, M.A. and VOOS, H. 2019. Model predictive cooperative localization control of multiple UAVs using potential function sensor constraints: a workflow to create sensor constraint based potential functions for the control of cooperative localization scenarios with mobile robots.

The global localization of multiple mobile robots can be achieved cost efficiently by localizing one robot globally and the others in relation to it using local sensor data. However, the drawback of this cooperative localization is the requirement of...
