A robot manipulator communications and control framework (2008)
Conference Proceeding
Kiely, J., Pipe, A., Kohrt, C., Pipe, A. G., Schiedermeier, G., & Stamp, R. (2008). A robot manipulator communications and control framework. In N. NA (Ed.), International Conference on Mechatronics and Automation, 2008, (846-851). https://doi.org/10.1109/ICMA.2008.4798867

The use of industrial scale experimental machinery robot systems such as the Mitsubishi RV-2AJ manipulator in research to experimentally prove new theories is a great opportunity. The robot manipulator communications and control framework written in... Read More about A robot manipulator communications and control framework.

This paper proposes a novel search and rescue concept that aims to overcome the most basic obstacle in utilising a search and rescue teleoperated robot for a long distance energy autonomy. The concept utilizes a number of small robots capable of crea... Read More about A feasibility study for energy autonomy in multi robot search and rescue operations.

An adaptive gaze stabilization controller inspired by the vestibulo-ocular reflex (2008)
Journal Article
Melhuish, C., Pipe, A. G., Lenz, A., Lenz, A., Balakrishnan, T., Pipe, A. G., & Melhuish, C. (2008). An adaptive gaze stabilization controller inspired by the vestibulo-ocular reflex. Bioinspiration and Biomimetics, 3(3), https://doi.org/10.1088/1748-3182/3/3/035001

The vestibulo-ocular reflex stabilizes vision in many vertebrates. It integrates inertial and visual information to drive the eyes in the opposite direction to head movement and thereby stabilizes the image on the retina. Its adaptive nature guarante...
