講演タイトル
Rescue Robots, Haptics and Fluid Power

概要

Compressed fluids are one of the oldest and yet one of the most powerful approaches to motion actuation for automation. When combined with human operator guidance, extremely effective tools for construction and agriculture commonly result. Applying this technology to smaller scale tasks such as rescue in an urban environment requires new developments in control and user interfaces. The Center for Compact and Efficient Fluid Power (CCEFP) addresses all of these challenges as well as providing appropriate power sources. After introducing the goals of the CCEFP, this seminar will focus on improving operator effectiveness through multimodal operator interfaces and shared control. Two applications will be considered: a human scale rescue robot and an excavator. These devices form two of four test beds for the CCEFP chosen because they span significantly different power ranges where fluid power has been or could be useful. Metrics for successful rescue and where current efforts have taken us will be presented.

講演者略歴

Wayne J. Book, HUSCO/Ramirez Distinguished Professor of Fluid Power and Motion Control, has taught at Georgia Institute of Technology since 1974. A Fellow of IEEE, ASME and SME, he holds degrees from M.I.T. (M.S., Ph.D.) and The University of Texas (B.S.) in Mechanical Engineering. His research focuses on system dynamics and control of fluid power and flexible systems, robotics, and haptic human interfaces. Current research is funded by industry and the NSF through the Center for Compact and Efficient Fluid Power. Dr. Book is the author or coauthor of over 170 papers in his research. He has been the editor of the ASME Journal of Dynamic Systems, Measurement and Control and was awarded the Leadership Award of the Dynamic Systems and Control Division in 2004.
