Perception-Driven Obstacle-Aided Locomotion for Snake Robots: The State of the Art, Challenges and Possibilities

https://www.sintef.no/en/publications/publication/?pubid=CRIStin+1462306

In nature, snakes can gracefully traverse a wide range of different and complex environments. Snake robots that can mimic this behaviour could be fitted with sensors and transport tools to hazardous or confined areas that other robots and humans are unable to access. In order to carry out such tasks...

Virtual Functional Segmentation of Snake Robots for Perception-Driven Obstacle-Aided Locomotion

https://www.sintef.no/en/publications/publication/?pubid=CRIStin+1428121

Snake robots equipped with sensors and tools could potentially contribute to applications such as fire-fighting, industrial inspection, search-and-rescue and more. Such capabilities would require that a snake robot has a high degree of awareness of its surroundings (i.e. perception-driven locomotion...

A Review on Perception-driven Obstacle-aided Locomotion for Snake Robots

https://www.sintef.no/en/publications/publication/?pubid=CRIStin+1428105

Biological snakes can gracefully traverse a wide range of different and complex environments. Snake robots that can mimic this behaviour could be fitted with sensors and also transport tools to hazardous or confined areas that other robots and humans are unable to access. To carry out such tasks, sn...

Cyber-Physical Energy Systems Approach for Engineering Power System State Estimation in Smart Grids

https://www.sintef.no/en/publications/publication/?pubid=CRIStin+1378219

This investigation proposes a CPES architecture and model for engineering energy management application for smart grids. In particular, the investigation considers the implementation of the power systems state estimator (PSSE). The CPES architecture has three layers: physical, monitoring and applica...

Modelling growth performance and feeding behaviour of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.) in commercial-size aquaculture net pens: Model details and validation through full-scale experiments

https://www.sintef.no/en/publications/publication/?pubid=CRIStin+1374687

We have developed a mathematical modelwhich estimates the growth performance of Atlantic salmon in aquaculture production units. The model consists of sub-models estimating the behaviour and energetics of the fish, the distribution of feed pellets, and the abiotic conditions in the water column. A f...

A study of Nonlinear Model Predictive Control (NMPC) for snake robot path following

https://www.sintef.no/en/publications/publication/?pubid=CRIStin+1205343

This paper considers Nonlinear Model Predictive Control (NMPC) in the context of snake robot locomotion. NMPC is an optimal control technique that offers the ability of handling constraints although requiring relatively significant computational resources. In detail, we show how NMPC can be applied ...
