Special Issue on Recent Advances in Robot Control
Professor of Department of Mechanical and Systems Engineering, Gifu Univesity, 1-1 Yanagido Gifu, Gifu 501-1193 Japan
This special issue contains outstanding papers on robot control presented at international meetings in Japan in 2000. Featured topics include face robots, polishing robots, control for multifingered robotic hands, re configurable brachiating space robots, DD parallel robots, and robot control technologies such as a distributed robust motion controller, image-based visual servoing, fault adaptive kinematic control, and optimum control for a robot manipulator. We also will have a variety of topics such as shaft insert tasks in the robot task field, fingerprint image sensing in sensing technologies, compliance display, emergence of affective behavior, human/robot communication in interfaces, and workspace analysis of parallel manipulators in robot analysis. In preparing this special issue, we have asked authors to revise work presented at international meetings to include further analyses and experimental data to help make papers even more interesting and informative concerning the purposes of the study, analyses, experiments, and simulation. We thank Professor Kohei Ohnishi, Department of System Design Engineering, School of Science and Engineering, Keio University, for his complete, courteous assistance, and all of the authors who such unstinting time to update their papers for this special issue.
