Bilateral Control-Based Imitation Learning for Velocity-Controlled Robot

Author: Sho Sakaino
Extended abstract:
Machine learning is now playing important role in robotic object manipulation. In addition, force control is necessary for manipulating various objects to achieve robustness against perturbations of configurations and stiffness. The author’s group revealed that fast and dynamic object manipulation with force …

Renewable energy generation for distributed generation systems are emerging as a plausible solution for the world’s growing energy demands. In this context multi-phase wind generation systems are …

Testing Operation and Coordination of DC Solid State Circuit Breakers

Authors:  James Langston; Andrew Rockhill; Karl Schoder; Michael Sloderbeck; Michael Steurer
Extended Abstract:
An approach for testing the operation and coordination of medium-voltage dc solid state circuit breakers (SSCB) for shipboard power systems is described. For the considered application, the rate of rise of current during a …
