Workshop on
"Robotic manipulation: mechatronic tools, modeling, identification and control"




The workshop

This workshop, entitled 'Robotic manipulation: mechatronic tools, modeling, identification and control', is a half-day workshop that will take place during the IFAC World Congress, held in Berlin Germany from 12th to 17th of July 2020.

date of workshop: Sunday July 12, 2020
Room: --
Place: Estrel Hotel and Congress Center situated in the Neukölln district of Berlin.

This workshop is within the activities of the IFAC TC.4.2 Mechatronics and can touch the activities of TC.4.3 Robotics as well.

Abstract

The objective of this workshop is to give an overview of issues and current techniques in robotic manipulation and grasping. We focus here on manipulation devices composed of robotic arms and/or multifingered gripper to perform assembly tasks, to handle tools, to manipulate versatile objects (biological or not) and to interact with humans. There are several possible applications; such as automotive industry, cobotics, medical (surgery and assistance), watch industry, military...

The presenters of the workshop will present innovative techniques to ensure an efficient and robust robotic manipulation and grasping task covering several complementary needed aspects such as mechanism design, mechatronics, modelling, parameters estimation and control. The aim is to exchange expertise on mechatronic tools, modeling, identification and control used in robotic manipulation tasks and to initiate collaborations between researchers of robotics manipulation community. The workshop is a half-day workshop.

Motivation and objectives

While many challenges have been yet observed in robotic manipulation; such as limited number of sensors and uncertainties; novel scientific challenges are raised: robotic manipulation in collaboration with human, tasks in harsh - extreme or tiny environment, manipulation of a very small objects, more and more complex objects shape, bulky object manipulation in crowded environment, deformability of the objects, object manipulation with varying of weight and mechanical impedance, more and more dexterity to be reached, manipulation with more than two robotic arms, manipulation with mobile robotics arms. Hence new advanced techniques that deal with force control, interaction stability, modeling, parametric identification and control techniques have also been raised.

The aim of this workshop is to exchange expertise on robotics manipulation and its several aspects and issues and to initiate collaborations between researchers of manipulation robotics community. It should also allow specialists presenting their different approaches and initiating collaborations and joint projects.
