Platooning is an application of autonomous driving in which the vehicles travel linearly following each other. The benefits of such driving are many-fold, primarily it increases the traffic throughput and also reduces fuel consumption as the result of minimized drag experienced by the vehicles. The state-of-the-art technologies to achieve...

Multi-robot motion planning without a central coordinator usually relies on the sharing of planned trajectories among the robots via wireless communication in order to achieve predictive collision avoidance. Path planners found in the literature that feature this scheme usually boast levels of performance comparable with their centralized...

Ultrasound imaging is a widely available and highly portable real-time, ionizing radiation-free imaging modality used as first-line in multiple areas. Conventionally, its use is focused on providing 2D imaging using ultrasound probes. However, with the introduction of matrix probes, the acquisition of 3D scans became possible enabling the...

Only 35 percent of the recent graduates are women. The figures are even lower for traditionally male dominated workforces such as engineering and robotics as women constitute only 12 percent of the engineering workforce. It is quite evident that we cannot ignore the gender equation when it comes to bringing in more equity in the workforce. As...

Diagnostic imaging is a fundamental requirement for the effective treatment of about 25 % of patients globally. Ultrasound imaging is considered the safest, least expensive and most convenient diagnostic imaging modality. Its widespread adoption has been in the area of 2D imaging. However, the accuracy of diagnosis with 2D ultrasound imaging is...

Programming robots with verbal commands is limited by the capabilities of the utilized natural language parser. A simple natural language parser which can understand only keywords and small phrases may be easy to use, but limited in what it can interpret and convey. Alternatively, a natural language parser which understands more complex commands...

The master's thesis explores the possibilities of reusing abandoned post-industrial structures and objects of architectural heritage. Objects, which are usually difficult to renovate due to high costs and their poor physical condition, could be filled with new inflatable volumes and thus be filled with new space, function, and life. The work is...

This thesis is a contribution to the research on Active Inference for Robotics. Active Inference is an intricate, intriguing theory from neuroscience, a field in which it has already gained a greater following and popularity. This theory, based on the underlying Free Energy Principle, provides a unified account of perception, action and learning...

A fundamental task of intelligent and autonomous robots is to infer from observations the state of the world. This inference is generally achieved by employing a filter, which consists of a model and filtering law. Learning this model and filtering law from observations is another fundamental part of robotics, and is generally referred to as...

Bimanual coordination is essential for the performance of daily activities, but the underlying motor control mechanisms are not yet fully understood. The goal of the present study is to identify the contribution of contralateral responses in the wrist joints to the performance of a bimanual task. Contralateral responses could possibly be used in...

The large interest in robot hands and active hand prostheses has in recent years been joined by that in active hand orthoses. Despite the differences in intended uses, these three categories of artificial hand devices share key characteristics. Examination of the commonalities could stimulate future design. Thus, we undertook a comparative...

Robotic assistance for rehabilitation has benefited from the use of models for motor adaptation. The assist-as-needed paradigm for rehabilitation robotics was based on a single-state model of human adaptation to a neurological handicap. Recent studies have shown that human motor adaptation consists of two or more parallel adaptation processes. A...

The versatility of automated composite technologies granted the possibility of manufacturing laminates with a continuous variation of fiber orientation, also known as Variable Stiffness Laminates (VSL). Despite offering enough dexterity to be adapted for composite deposition, industrial manipulators are nontrivial to integrate into other...

The core challenge of the BedBasedEcho BEP project is to create an algorithm to find the heart, and apply it on a robotic echocardiography solution. The team has found multiple complex solutions that are related to this problem, and has extracted useful information from these solutions to apply to this problem. However, some of these complex...
