Tutorial On Robot Limb Virtual Prototyping Design and Control

Hosted by: ASME 2015 International Design Engineering Technical Conferences (IDETC) and Computers and Information in Engineering Conference (CIE) (http://www.asmeconferences.org/IDETC2015/index.cfm)

Venue: Hynes Convention Center in Boston, 39 Dalton Street Boston, MA 02199

Date: August 2, 2015

Time: 1:00pm - 5:00pm (Half Day)

Location: Room 301

Description

This tutorial shows the fundamental principles and theoretical concepts to design a robotic limb and a control implementation using both the analytical and numerical approach. That permits to the participants to combine and to exploit these two methods to solve the kinematic and dynamic equations of a robot limb. The Multi-Body Dynamics (MBD) numerical method, in fact, is well known in the industrial R&D, but it is not so widespread in the academic environment; therefore this tutorial aims to prove that it could be a useful tool to support also the basic research. For this aim, the demo will help to demonstrate that the numerical results not only will match with the analytical one, but also with the experimental tests. The attendees will experience that the control works both for the virtual and physical model.
Moreover, the participants will be fully trained to design the complete robot limb at their home. During the tutorial, emphasis will be placed on walking participants through the building and validation of the numerical model with the experimental one.
Attendees should bring their laptops computers with Matlab installed, since the workshop will combine theoretical explanations with practice on the computer.
