  • The objective of this book is to provide those interested in the field of flexible robotics with an overview of several scientific and technological advances in the practical field of robotic manipulation. The different chapters examine various stages that involve a number of robotic devices, particularly those designed for manipulation tasks characterized by mechanical flexibility. Chapter 1 deals with the general context surrounding the design of functionally integrated microgripping systems. Chapter 2 focuses on the dual notations of modal commandability and observability, which play a significant role in the control authority of vibratory modes that are significant for control issues. Chapter 3 presents different modeling tools that allow the simultaneous use of energy and system structuring notations. Chapter 4 discusses two sensorless methods that could be used for manipulation in confined or congested environments. Chapter 5 analyzes several appropriate approaches for responding to the specific needs required by versatile prehension tasks and dexterous manipulation. After a classification of compliant tactile sensors focusing on dexterous manipulation, Chapter 6 discusses the development of a complying triaxial force sensor based on piezoresistive technology. Chapter 7 deals with the constraints imposed by submicrometric precision in robotic manipulation. Chapter 8 presents the essential stages of the modeling, identification and analysis of control laws in the context of serial manipulator robots with flexible articulations. Chapter 9 provides an overview of models for deformable body manipulators. Finally, Chapter 10 presents a set of contributions that have been made with regard to the development of methodologies for identification and control of flexible manipulators based on experimental data.

  • Qu'il s'agisse de tâches de préhension versatile aux échelles du micromonde ou bien de tâches de manipulation fine ou dextre à une échelle dimensionnelle supérieure, la fonction de manipulation robotique nécessite l'utilisation de systèmes mécatroniques performants et précis. Dans la majorité des cas, ceux-ci mettent en jeu des mécanismes qui sont caractérisés par des phénomènes mécaniques de flexibilité. Ces phénomènes sont induits naturellement par l'emploi de certains composants technologiques constitutifs du système ou par la géométrie de certaines structures élancées. Il peut alors s'agir de micromanipulateurs à base de matériaux actifs, de bras manipulateurs légers, d'organes terminaux de préhension très intégrés sur le plan fonctionnel, voire de manipulateurs d'inspiration anthropomorphe. Aperçu des dernières avancées scientifiques et technologiques en la matière, cet ouvrage est destiné à toute personne intéressée par le champ de la robotique flexible et plus particulièrement par la manipulation.
