Grasping of unknown objects with neither appearance data nor object models given in advance is very important for robots that work in an unfamiliar environment. The goal of this paper is to quickly synthesize an executable grasp for one unknown object by using cylinder searching on a single point cloud. Specifically, a 3D camera is first used to...

The current research trends of object grasping can be summarized as caging grasping and force closure grasping. The motivation of this paper is to combine the advantage of caging grasping and force closure grasping to enable under-actuated grippers like the Lacquey gripper and the parallel grippers like the PR2 gripper to quickly grasp the...

Reducing the grasp candidates for unknown object grasping while maintaining grasp stability is the goal of this paper. In this paper, we propose an efficient and straight forward unknown object grasping method by using concavities of the unknown objects to significantly reduce the grasp candidates. Shortest path concavity is first employed to...

The goal of the research presented in this thesis is to increase the understanding of the human running gait. The understanding of the human running gait is essential for the development of devices, such as prostheses and orthoses, that enable disabled people to run or that enable able people to increase their running performance. Although these...

Human walking is remarkably robust, versatile and energy-efficient: humans have the ability to handle large unexpected disturbances, perform a wide variety of gaits and consume little energy. A bipedal walking robot that performs well on all of these aspects has not yet been developed. Some robots are versatile, others are energy-efficient, and...
