[24] Ariadna Study: Space Gaits
Photo


Initiated by: Advanced Concepts Team (ACT) of European Space Agency (ESA)

Reference Name: 4000105989/12/NL/KML, Period: 5/2012 - 7/2013
The goal of the Ariadna project is to systematically use Hildebrand diagrams or some equivalent methodology to analyse walking gaits emerging from an optimisation process in order to verify whether behavioral switches / bifurcations exist with respect to parameters such as gravity and soil type.

[22] Identification and Assessment of Existing Terrestrial Micro-systems and Micro-technologies for Space Robotics
Photo


Initiated by: European Space Agency - ESA

Reference Name: 22110/08/NL/RA, Period: 12/2008-8/2009
The project entitled "Identification and Assessment of Existing Terrestrial Micro- systems and Micro-technologies for Space Robotics" has been initiated by ESA with the objective of (i) identifying and assessing terrestrial mature Micro-System Devices (MSD) and Micro/ Nano Technologies (MNT) for possible integration in space Automation and Robotics applications (A&R), (ii) identify A&R components that may benefit from the introduction of MSD and MNT and (iii) introduce MSD and MNT in selected space A&R applications with the aim of creating low-cost miniature systems with the same or augmented capabilities.

[20] Design and development of a dynamic positionning system for the platform "Delta-Vereniki"
Photo


Initiated by:

Reference Name: Delta Vereniki, Period: 2008
The project aimed at the dynamic modeling and the practical implementation of an autonomous dynamic positioning scheme, i.e., the stabilization of linear and angular velocities as well as the position and orientation, of a floating sea triangular platform. The required, closed-loop force and moment must be provided by T&SSee rotating pump jets, located at the bottom of T&SSee partly submerged cylinders at the corners of the platform. With this control configuration the platform is overactuated, i.e., it has more control inputs than degrees of freedom. A control allocation scheme that allows goal realization without violating T&SSuster capabilities was developed.

[9] MiCRoN: MIniature Co-operative RObots advancing towards the Nano-range
Photo


Initiated by: European Committee FET

Reference Name: IST-2001-33567
Period: 2002-2005
NTUA involved in the 3-year European FET Project: MiCRoN. I have contributed to the control architecture and implementation of the MiCRoN robots. More specifically we designed a control architecture that is composed by: (i) a high level simulation and autonomous execution unit that is capable for on-line multi robot navigation with collision avoidance properties, (ii) a trajectory tracking unit for manipulation purposes, and (iii) a low level position controller that performs position control exploiting machine learning algorithms. The entire architecture was implemented on a Linux platform using C++ object oriented development.
The project involved tight cooperation with research groups from the following European universities : (i) University of Karlsruhe (project leader), (ii) EPFL (Lausanne), (iii) SSSA (Pisa), (iv) Fraunhofer IBMT, (v) Sheffield Hallam University, (vi) University of Barcelona, (vii) Uppsala University.
