  1. 1. Modeling and Identification of the Gantry-Tau Parallel Kinematic Machine

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Institutionen för systemteknik

    Author : Christian Lyzell; [2007]
    Keywords : Robotics; parallel; modeling; identification; Tau;

    Abstract : This report presents work done in the field of modeling and identification of parallel kinematic machines. The results have been verified on the new Gantry-Tau prototype situated at the University of Queensland.The inverse dynamic model for the 3-DOF Gantry-Tau has been validated and implemented to fit the new prototype.

  2. 2. Dynamical Analysis and System Identification of the Gantry-Tau Parallel Manipulator

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Institutionen för systemteknik

    Author : Johan Gunnar; [2005]
    Keywords : robotics; identification; nonlinear; parallel; Tau;

    Abstract : This report presents work done in the field of linear and nonlinear system identification on robots. The subject of study has been a new parallel manipulator called Gantry-Tau. The work shall be seen as one of the first steps in the dynamical analysis of the robot. READ MORE

  3. 3. Towards navigation without sensory inputs: modelling Hesslow?s simulation hypothesis in artificial cognitive agents

    University essay from Högskolan i Skövde/Institutionen för kommunikation och information

    Author : Alberto Montebelli; [2004]
    Keywords : simulation hypothesis; evolutionary robotics; situated robotics; embodied cognition; mixture of experts.;

    Abstract : In the recent years a growing interest in Cognitive Science has been directed to the cognitive role of the agent's ability to predict the consequences of their actions, without actual engagement with their environment. The creation of an experimental model for Hesslow's simulation hypothesis, based on the use of a simulated adaptive agent and the methods of evolutionary robotics within the general perspective of radical connectionism, is reported in this dissertation.

  4. 4. Embodied Cognition as Internal Simulation of Perception and Action: Towards a cognitive robotics

    University essay from Högskolan i Skövde/Institutionen för datavetenskap

    Author : Henrik Svensson; [2002]
    Keywords : emulation; representations; simulation of perception and action; situated robotics;

    Abstract : This dissertation discusses the view that embodied cognition is essentially internal simulation (or emulation) of perception and action, and that the same (neural) mechanisms are underlying both real and simulated perception and action. More specifically, it surveys evidence supporting the simulation view from different areas of cognitive science (neuroscience, perception, psychology, social cognition, theory of mind). READ MORE

  5. 5. Social Situatedness of Natural and Artificial Intelligence

    University essay from Högskolan i Skövde/Institutionen för datavetenskap

    Author : Jessica Lindblom; [2001]
    Keywords : Social situatedness; Humanoid robotics; Primate intelligence; Vygotsky; Cognitive development;

    Abstract : The situated approach in cognitive science and artificial intelligence (AI) has argued since the mid-1980s that intelligent behaviour emerges as a result of a close coupling between agent and environment. Lately, many researchers have emphasized that in addition to the physical environment, the social environment must not be neglected. READ MORE
