The bioelectronic skin device could be useful for a basic study on somesthetic systems such as cold‐pain sensation, and should be used for versatile applications such as screening of foods and drugs. Mechanics and Control of Soft-fingered Manipulation introduces a new approach to the modeling of fingertips that have a soft pad and a hard back plate, similar to human fingers. The tests results demonstrate that the prototype actuator is capable of producing unprecedented torques and associated accelerations relative to its size and mass. The arm is intended for high speed food processing applications; specifically on-line poultry deboning. The application of the limit surface theory and the viscoelastic model of contact make the detection of slippage. The other is for a small area tactile sensor that has good sensitivity and spatial resolution, similar to human finger skin. To read the full-text of this research, you can request a copy directly from the authors. The fingertips are equipped with three-axis force sensors based on an optical measurement principle, ... Each taxel provides a local force estimate corresponding to its activation. The detection of slippage with an intrinsic tactile system is tested. However, there is a need for more functionality so that these sensors can measure contact force with six degrees of freedom [30][31][32] (Fig. Various technologies and transduction methods used to improve the touch sense capability of robots are presented. This solution allows a very simple assembly procedure together with a good sensor response in terms of sensitivity, linearity and noise rejection to be achieved using an extremely simple electronics, thereby obtaining in this way a reliable and very cheap sensor that can be easily integrated in actuation modules for robots and can easily adapted to a wide application set. The solution combines and optimizes some state-of-the-art techniques to solve object recognition and localization problems with a new hybrid pipeline. They have beendesigned and implemented in the fingers of the humanoid robotObrero. The unit tactile cell characteristics are evaluated against normal and shear loads. The main advantages of the proposed sensor consist in the use of a very compact commercial optoelectronic component, called light fork, as sensing element. The sensor control system and experimental results are also described. The measured FEA results are consistent with the applied standard force/moments. Direct-drive traction motors devoted to railway applications must be designed in order to comply with both machine diameter restriction and achievement of very high torque density, as well as they should have substantial flux-weakening capability in order to be operated over the required constant-power speed range. IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems. The sensor is based on a two-layer structure, i.e. In this paper, the design and the implementation of a force sensor based on a commercial optoelectronic component called light fork and characterized by the simple construction process is presented. Kasap. This procedure provides conditions under which it is possible … Therefore, this technique is used to train a CNN in order to detect small objects (such as wire terminals). A specific algorithm for the reconstruction of the grasped wire shape has been developed and used for defining suitable metrics adopted in the design phase. It is well known that the anatomy of our fingers, which consists of soft fingertips and hard fingernails, is well designed for grasping and manipulating objects. Experimental results indicate that the performance is improved by including time series information in the linear regression process generally utilized to calibrate six-axis force sensors. At the peak the microcontroller produces a digital output signal. We also present the fabrication process and experimental verification of the prototype sensors. The article also includes an overview of different types of robot applications and the types of tactile information that they employ. An array of electrodes has been adopted on either side of the PZT material to achieve independent resonators. Thin metal strain gauges, which are incorporated into the polymer, are used for measuring normal and shear loads. We use Gaussian process regression to fuse the signals from both sensors to obtain calibrated force in Newton with an R-squared value of 0.99. The precision in the measurement of three-dimensional force/moment is very necessary for the manufacturing process, for satellite, and in military equipment. In this framework of new application scenarios and research activity, we present our vision of the physical, structural, and functional properties of an electronic skin system on the basis of the current state of the art, toward solving open questions and filling the gap between research on tactile sensing systems and industrial applications. Finally, the magnitude and location of the forces applied over the tactile frame are estimated by means of a data fusion technique, yielding the probabilistic distribution of the mechanical disturbances. In the bioelectronic skin, the nanovesicles containing the hTRPA1 nociceptive ion channel protein reacts to cold‐pain stimuli, and it is electrically monitored through carbon nanotube transistor devices based on floating electrodes. Numerical analysis and experimental characterization have verified the tuned force range by these two packaging approaches. The newly generated tactile imprints are evaluated with the learned grasp quality network and the regrasp action is chosen to maximize the grasp quality. This effect is pronounced as the limiting extensibility decreases to less than 5 and eliminates the one-to-one mapping of hardness to modulus. This sensing system is based on the coupled results obtained from six well-located force sensors in order to measure the magnitude, position and orientation of the interacting force. It is particularly aimed at finding out what researchers and manufacturers of industrial manipulators see as present and future tactile-sensing requirements and potentials. At the peak, the microcontroller produces a digital output signal. Information ac- quired from artificial sensing … Moreover, the precision requested during the assembly task and the typical crowded space inside the switchgear imply, on one side, the development of specific hardware and software tools and, on the other side, high adaptability and flexibility of the robotic system. These actions are allowed by the neural interface, a miniaturized implantable device that most commonly exploits electrical energy to fulfill these operations. These force sensor arrays are flexible enough to be attached to a curved surface and they also have simple wiring compared with other types of small force sensors for tactile sensation. pressure sensing elements. A prototype in the 2-Dimensional plan is built. According to the requirements of the switchgear cabling in terms of available space between switchgear components, the maximum allowed width for the tactile sensor is 20mm, while the maximum thickness is 7mm, well below the dimensions of the sensor in, ... A tactile sensor is a device based on imitation of human tactile functions and applied to robotic hand to improve the manipulation ability and perceptual capabilities. A commercial sensor based on another technology is used for reference. We conclude this paper with specific design guidelines for the ARM spacecraft for efficiently stabilizing a tumbling asteroid and spacecraft combination. A real-time flexible motion planning method was developed to be adapted to typical in-store logistics scenarios. Giuseppe De Maria was born in Napoli, Italy, on December 1948. We present the design, analysis and construction of a biologicallyinspired tactile sensor. He currently serves as Associate Editor of the IEEE Trans. His research interests include robust control, control of mechanical systems, industrial and advanced robotics, control of aerospace and aeronautical systems, active noise and vibration control of flexible structures. We then numerically compare the performance of multiple viable attitude control laws, including the robust nonlinear tracking control law, nonlinear adaptive control, and derivative plus proportional-derivative linear control. An external force applied to the deformable layer produced local variations of the bottom surface of the elastic material, and the couples of optical devices measured the vertical deformations in a discrete number of points. Università degli Studi della Campania "Luigi Vanvitelli". The developed sensor exhibits low hysteresis because the transduction mechanism of the sensor is dominated by the contact between the conductive coated surface. Information arises from the multiple receptors available within the human skin, especially across hand and fingers (Johansson and Vallbo, 1979; Johansson et al., 1982). ?sense of touch?? Therefore, this study attempts to resolve this problem through machine learning. Four fingertips were fabricated with one intuitive, one optimal, and two optional sets of parameters. The most relevant of such requirements is the necessity to hold a torsional moment, therefore a soft distributed contact is necessary. In this article, we provide an overview of tactile information and its applications in robotics. The FEM simulations results are approximately 99-100% of the exerted axial force, vertical force and pitch moment respectively. ... An ADC (Analog-to-Digital Converter) Module converts the analog signals (sounds), captured by the Hydrophones, is converted into digital signals, which are then transmitted to a station via the RF (Radio Frequency) Antenna on the Float Platform. The classification method consists of applying multiscale principal components analysis prior to the classification with a multilayer neural network. The sensor is based on a two-layer structure, i.e. The measuring range of six-axis force/torque sensors is very wide [17] and sensors survive high overload is more than 100 percent of full-scale output. The model is exploited to estimate the relative velocity of the object with respect to the fingers, so as to control the grip force to counteract possible slipping events due to external disturbances. Starting from the previous version of the tactile sensor [19], the authors implemented a version suitably optimized for wire manipulation. Moreover, sensing only forces and not moments can be very limiting to securely grasp an object when it is grasped far from its center of gravity. Subsequently. This paper presents the design of a new force/tactile sensor for robotic applications. Static and dynamic analyses of the new tactile on variations in the physical dimensions of an elastic dielectric due to To implement a robust grasping phase, a novel slipping control algorithm was used. Herein, the stimulus responsive assembly of complex 3D structures driven by temperature‐responsive hydrogels is demonstrated for applications in 3D multifunctional sensors. Force feedback and tactile sensing are key technologies to enable remote robotic servicing. Euopean patent pending, Application no. We propose a new tactile sensor utilizing piezoelectric vibration. 9. The platform will be powered using Solar Power and will be able to work for long durations of time. Conversely, human-interface research aims to allow people to interact with machines as if they were natural objects in a cybernetic, human-oriented way. A calibration procedure is also presented, whose results demonstrate the ability of the sensor to reconstruct the contact point and also the normal and tangential components of the contact force. By measuring the amplitude and phase of the output signal, From 2000 to 2004 he has been Research Associate at the Second University of Naples, where he currently holds the position of Associate Professor of Robotics. The control strategy is model based and relies upon the limit surface concept. OmniTact, the sensor developed by Ebert and his colleagues, is an adaptation of GelSight, a tactile sensor created by researchers at MIT and UC Berkeley. Since hysteresis is dependent on the previous history, this study investigates the effect of using time series information in machine learning. The amplitude and © 2008-2021 ResearchGate GmbH. Starting from the tactile sensor working principle presented in [15], the authors will develop a version suitably optimized for wire manipulation. Further The force vectors are determined using the displacement of the two-layer marker points. Four physical demonstrators are assembled and tested to evaluate the approach. This covers the context-independent phases of the collision event pipeline for robots interacting with the environment, as in physical human–robot interaction or manipulation tasks. The proposed hand has three snake-like underactuated fingers that can be folded into a 12 mm cylindrical form. The tactile sensor has been interfaced to computer for the convenience of automatic scanning and making it more user interactive. force, and the minimum dashpot coefficient (B), defined as the ratio of frictional force to rolling velocity, were extracted to be 0.02 and 4 x 10-2 kg/s , respectively, for the linear device. Upon the application of the force, the distance between the planes and the fiber tips changes, thus, the LTV voltage changes, enabling the simultaneous measurement of forces along three normal axes utilizing only one set of force measurement unit. We present a hierarchy consisting of raw, contact, object, and action levels to structure the tactile information, with higher-level information often building upon lower-level information. The regrasp control policy improves the success rate of grasp actions by an average relative increase of 70% on a test set of 8 objects. EP11425148.1. This tactile sensor has a high sensitivity, wide measurement range, pressure resistance, flexibility, and self-sensing function. ScienceDirect ® is a registered trademark of Elsevier B.V. ScienceDirect ® is a registered trademark of Elsevier B.V. Force/tactile sensor for robotic applications. The design, modeling, and testing of a flexible tactile sensor and its applications are presented. The tactile sensors developed with different spatial resolution were tested for different shaped objects placed in contact with the sensor. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.sna.2011.12.042. For robotic applications, the two main research areas on tactile sensor development are related with object con- trolled lifting and grasping tasks and with the ability to characterize different surface … Sensor performance was evaluated for the cross-talk effects which were found to be less than 5%. Tactile sensors are generally modeled after the biological sense of cutaneous touch which is capable of detecting stimuli resulting from mechanical stimulation, temperature, and pain (although pain sensing … The basic physically motivated solution has already been applied to numerous robotic systems worldwide, ranging from manipulators and humanoids to flying robots, and even to commercial products. We define a tactile sensor as a device or system that can measure a given property of an object or contact event through physical contact between the sensor and the object. This paper presents the design and calibration of a new force/tactile sensor for robotic applications. The paper outlines the design characteristics and reports experimental results of the above-mentioned railway traction motor prototype. Proceedings of the ... IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems. We solved this concern with a novel multi-modal tactile sensor which consists of an infrared proximity sensor and a barometric pressure sensor embedded in an elastomer layer with potential use in prosthetic devices. Furthermore, the electronics can be placed at a greater distance from the sensor by guiding the medium (air) through rigid pipe, which is preferable especially in applications where there is little space. The circuits and the construction are also described. He received the Laurea and the Research Doctorate degree in Electronic Engineering from the Second University of Naples, Aversa, Italy, in 2001 and 2004, respectively. Experimental results carried out in a typical supermarket scenario demonstrate the effectiveness of the presented methods. The combination can be used in robotics, telecheric applications, biomechanics and virtual reality applications. a printed circuit board … The first involves intrinsic tactile sensing, i.e., estimating contact locations and forces from force sensors. This work is dedicated to developing an algorithm to estimate contact force and torque for vision-based tactile sensors. This type of perception information is of paramount importance not only in dexterous manipulation but even in simple grasping tasks, especially when objects are fragile, such that only a minimum amount of grasping force can be applied to hold the object without damaging it. Starting from human ? When loads are exerted on the sole, the GRF can be measured by these four sensors. The sensor is suitably designed to provide the robotic grasping device with a sensory system mimicking the human sense of touch, namely, a device sensitive to contact forces, object slip and object geometry. These features make thesensors ideal for mass production.We are motivated to build tactile sensors that are useful forrobotic manipulation given that the current ones do not have thefeatures that we consider necessary. This chapter reports an overview of the experience and the results achieved during the development of the robotized system for switchgear wiring carried out in the WIRES experiment. The algorithm guarantees good robustness and accuracy for object detection through depth images. One is used for the vibration of the sensor element and the other is used for the measurement of the change in mechanical impedance induced by an external force. Force and tactile sensors enable robots to manipulate objects in less-structured environments with greater precision and sensitivity. Thus developing a high-resolution fully integrated tactile sensor system is of great interest. This paper presents a novel regrasp control policy that makes use of tactile sensing to plan local grasp adjustments. It uses an underwater "float" connected to the floating platform, via a shaft, to which a set of Hydrophones are connected. We first introduce the observation of the contact deformation patterns of hyperelastic materials under ideal single-axial loads in simulation. His research interests on robotics include modelling and control of industrial manipulators, force and visual control, cooperative robots. Grasping and manipulation with anthropomorphic robotic and prosthetic hands presents a scientific challenge regarding mechanical design, sensor system, and control. However, an integration of reactive grasping control and motion planning can allow robots to perform such tasks even with grippers with limited dexterity. In order to verify the effectiveness of this tactile sensor, we performed an experiment in which a four-fingered robot hand equipped with tactile sensors grasped sphere and column. Moreover, for the elastic body, it is preferable to use a material whose elasticity and viscosity are easily changed by an external force, such as a gel. An analytical physical model and a complete experimental characterization of the sensor are presented. Flexible tactile sensor with contact force sensing and surface texture recognition abilities is crucial for robotic dexterous grasping and manipulation in daily usage. Comparable performance is not feasible with contemporary electrical actuators of similar size. One was to apply the external force to the sensor element through an elastic body and the other was to use two or more modes of vibration. Then based on the observation, we propose a method of estimating surface forces and torque from the contact deformation vector field with the Helmholtz-Hodge Decomposition (HHD) algorithm. This paper presents the development of a flexible, multi-axis, intensity modulated-based fiber-optic force sensor for concurrently measuring normal and shear forces. Copyright © 2021 Elsevier B.V. or its licensors or contributors. The sensorized fingers used in this work are based on the technology originally presented in, ... Nowadays, there are many tactile sensors based on different working principle. However, it is inherently difficult to design good features that can capture intrinsic properties embedded in various time series data. Considerable effort in the 1980s was spent investigating transduction techniques and developing new sensors, whilst emphasis in more recent research has focused on experiments using tactile sensors to perform a variety of tasks.This paper reports on progress in tactile sensing in the following areas: cutaneous sensors, sensing fingers, soft materials, industrial robot grippers, multifingered hands, probes and whiskers, analysis of sensing devices, haptic perception, processing sensory data and new application areas.We conclude that the predominant choice of transduction method is piezoelectric, with arrays using resistive or capacitive sensing. In 1973 he received the Laurea degree in Electronic Engineering from the University of Naples. The sensors presented in thispaper have been designed to deal with these issues. The plate is attached on the thumb. A standard planner plans collision-free trajectories throughout the whole task while a proposed reactive motion control is active. The 3×3 matrix tactile sensor showed relatively poor spatial resolution, whereas the 15×15- matrix tactile sensor showed improved spatial resolution. Furthermore, the sensor is also the mechanical interface between the gripper and the manipulated object, therefore its design should consider also the requirements for a correct holding of the object. is achieved with tactile heads, each of which is supported by three This paper presents a methodology of tuning the force range of a designated MEMS tactile sensor for broader application potentials by packaging this millinewton-level force sensor with different polymers. This work presents the design of the tactile sensor within the WIRES project, aimed at automating the cabling process of switchgears. The force sensor presents a linear response and a resolution of 0.38 N and a sensitivity of 0.05 V/N. The second intrinsic system is adapted to a robotic finger with soft surface. In this paper we present a scalable design model of artificial fingers, which combines mechanical design and embedded electronics with a sophisticated multi-modal sensor system consisting of sensors for sensing normal and shear force, distance, acceleration, temperature, and joint angles. The sensor configuration follows a hybrid integration approach for interconnection and for future electronic circuitry system integration. The results suggest that the hand can effectively enhance the functionality of a robotic surgical system and overcome the limits on force sensing introduced by the use of robots in laparoscopic surgery. We use supervised learning to localize probe position and direction with classification accuracies of 96% and 89% respectively. Finally we end the article with a discussion for future tactile applications which are still beyond the current capabilities of robots. To deal with the wire deformability and occlusion problems during the wire insertion, machine learning and sensor fusion techniques have been adopted to enable the wire manipulation by means of tactile sensors and 2D cameras feedback. The 3×3 matrix tactile sensor showed relatively poor spatial resolution whereas 15×15-matrix tactile sensor showed improved spatial resolution. Robots are expected to recognize the properties of objects in order to handle them safely and efficiently in a variety of applications, such as health and elder care, manufacturing, or high-risk environments. This tactile sensor comprises two piezoelectric materials. ... Neural network has shown its usefulness in recovering contact force for tactile sensors. This paper describes the design, manufacture and properties of membrane structures with capacitive detection of deflection. Likewise, tactile sensing will become essential for robotic and prosthetic gripping performance as applications move toward unstructured environments. This structure is implemented during the molding process, which is adopted to extend the porous tactile sensor to large-scale and facile fabrication. The sensor structure, electrical circuit, and characteristics are described. His research interests include modelling and control of smart actuators for advanced feedback control systems and design of innovative sensors for robotics applications, as well as identification and control of vibrating systems. The resulting sensor is cheap, accurate and a simple signal processing sensor. We found that increased emphasis on understanding tactile sensing and perception issues has opened up potential for new application areas. The complementary nature of both sensors leads to several sensing modalities that no one sensor can provide on its own and the repeatable, reliable, and compact form of the sensor enables use in multi-functional prosthetic hands.
