Improving slip prediction on Mars using thermal inertia measurements

Rovers operating on Mars have been delayed, diverted, and trapped by loose granular materials. Vision-based mobility prediction cannot reliably distinguish hazardous sand from safe sand based on appearance alone. Unlike surface appearance, the …


Design of a partially-coupled self-adaptive robotic finger optimized for collaborative robots

This paper presents the design and optimization of a self-adaptive, a.k.a. underactuated, finger targeted to be used with collaborative robots. Typical robots, whether collaborative or not, mostly rely on standard translational grippers for …


Map-based localization and loop-closure detection from a moving underwater platform using flow features

In recent years, flow sensing has gotten the attention of the robotics community as an exteroceptive sensing modality, in addition to the conventional underwater sensing modalities of vision and sonar. Earlier works on flow sensing for robotics …


Semantic and geometric reasoning for robotic grasping: a probabilistic logic approach

While any grasp must satisfy the grasping stability criteria, good grasps depend on the specific manipulation scenario: the object, its properties and functionalities, as well as the task and grasp constraints. We propose a probabilistic logic …

Über diese Zeitschrift

Autonomous Robots reports on the theory and applications of robotic systems capable of some degree of self-sufficiency. It features papers that include performance data on actual robots in the real world. Coverage includes: control of autonomous robots · real-time vision · autonomous wheeled and tracked vehicles · legged vehicles · computational architectures for autonomous systems · distributed architectures for learning, control and adaptation · studies of autonomous robot systems · sensor fusion · theory of autonomous systems · terrain mapping and recognition · self-calibration and self-repair for robots · self-reproducing intelligent structures · genetic algorithms as models for robot development.

The focus is on the ability to move and be self-sufficient, not on whether the system is an imitation of biology. Of course, biological models for robotic systems are of major interest to the journal since living systems are prototypes for autonomous behavior.
