Abstract This Special Issue of the Robotica is on recent advances in field and service robotics with a focus on the use of robotic and autonomous technologies to handle tasks in harsh environments and tasks that involve the multirobot cooperation and human–robot interactions.
Abstract This paper presents a new approach for geometrically constrained path planning applied to the field of robotic grasping. The method proposed in this paper is based on the Fast Marching Square (FM $\, ^2$ ) and a path calculation approach based on an optimization evolutionary filter...
Abstract This article presents modelling, simulation, and development of a wall-climbing robot based on coupled wheel and arm-type locomotion mechanism. The developed robot consists of two mobile modules connected with a robot arm mechanism. The actuation of the robot arm is inspired by inchworm...
Abstract In this paper, a novel self-adaptive underactuated robot hand with rigid-flexible coupling fingers (SAU-RFC hand) is proposed. The seven degrees of freedom (DOFs) SAU-RFC hand is driven by four servomotors, consists of three fingers, including two side-turning (ST) fingers and one...
Abstract The control of industrial robot manipulators presents a difficult problem for control engineers due to the complexity of their nonlinear dynamics models. Nonlinear controls based on feedback linearization are developed to meet control requirements. Model-based nonlinear control is...
Abstract Collision avoidance is critical in multirobot systems. Most of the current methods for collision avoidance either require high computation costs (e.g., velocity obstacles and mathematical optimization) or cannot always provide safety guarantees (e.g., learning-based methods). Moreover,...
Abstract Modern approaches for exploration path planning generally do not assume any structural information regarding the operational area. Therefore, they offer good performance when the region of interest is entirely unknown. However, for some applications such as plantation forest surveying,...
