Auto-tuning of PID controllers for robot manipulators

Bild zum Projekt Automatische PID-Reglereinstellung für serielle Roboter

Researcher:

M.Sc. Ahmed Zidan

Brief description:

Traditional PID controller is one of the most popular control structures in industrial processes. This is due to its simplicity and robustness. These advantages qualify PID controllers to be widely used in the field of robotics. Robot manipulators, however, are highly nonlinear, highly coupled, multi-input multi-output (MIMO) dynamic systems. Tuning the PID gains for such systems is considered to be a complicated task, which is usually done using traditional or manual methods, e.g. trials and errors.

Design of Energy Efficient Mechatronic Systems based on Automated Controller Synthesis and Trajectory Planning

Bild zum Projekt Entwurf energieeffizienter mechatronischer Systeme durch Kopplung automatischer Steuerungssynthese und Trajektorienplanung

Researcher:

M. Sc. Elias Knöchelmann

Funded by:

German Research Foundation (DFG)

Brief description:

Reducing the energy consumption is a major concern in industrial production systems. One approach is recuperating the braking energy of robot axes. We therefore propose an automated methodology that consists of three parts: A scenario-based language to flexibly specify the discrete production system behavior, an automated procedure to synthesize optimal control strategies from such specifications, including PLC code generation, and a procedure for the detailed trajectory optimization.

Evaluation of the laryngeal adduction reflex via laryngoscopic microdroplet application and image processing

Bild zum Projekt Evaluation des laryngealen Adduktionsreflexes mit einem mechatronischen Mikrotropfen-Laryngoskop

Researcher:

Jacob F. Fast, M.Sc.

Funded by:

DFG

Brief description:

In this interdisciplinary project, a novel endoscopic system for the examination of the laryngeal adduction reflex (LAR) is being developed and tested in cooperation with the Department of Phoniatry and Pedaudiology (director: Prof. Dr. med. Dr. med. h.c. Martin Ptok) at Hanover Medical School (MHH). The LAR is triggered by the application of an accelerated droplet. A high-speed camera system is used to assess the reflex response. The integration of image processing algorithms increases the degree of automation and objectivity of the diagnostic procedure.

Hand-Held Projection and Measurement System for Surgical Interventions

Bild zum Projekt Hand-Held Projection and Measurement System for Surgical Interventions

Researcher:

M. Sc. Dipl.-Ing. Shivaraman Ilango

Funded by:

Lower Saxony Ministry for Science and Culture

Brief description:

In Augmented reality, image overlay projection is a technique that would help the surgeons to view the underlying anatomical structures directly on the surface of the skin or organ of the patient. Within the scope of the Tailored Light Scholarship Program , a novel hand-held projector system would be developed that would allow the images of 3-D patient-specific models to be projected directly onto the surface of the organ intraoperatively without the need of intrusive hardware around the surgical scene. This would circumvent the problems of sight diversion and view reorientation from the patient, to the monitors with patient information like CT, MRI and would help the surgeons in performing the surgeries without any strain.

Funded by:

Faculty of Mechanical Engineering

Brief description:

The Campus Maschinenbau is the University's largest new construction project and is scheduled to commence its final operation in the winter semester of 2019/20. To faciliate orientation at the campus and answer requests of different kinds, the purpose of this project is to conceptualize and implement a robot-assisted orientation system. The robot is supposed to provide information from the central information- and room-planning system and will also work as a guide for people who require orientation at the campus.

Online-Identification of control parameters in electric drives for parameter tracking II

Bild zum Projekt Online-Identifikation regelungstechnisch relevanter Systemparameter elektrisch
angetriebener mechanischer Systeme II

Researcher:

M. Sc. Mathias Tantau

Brief description:

The main goal of the project is the identification of the main parameters for electric drives with elastically coupled mechanics without additional sensors. This is achieved firstly with dedicated identification trajectories and secondly during operation by observing the parameter identifiability with respect to the features of the trajectory. The basis is a mechatronic model of the overall mechatronic system.

OPhonLas: OCT-geregelte Laserablation bei Stimmlippen-Phonation

Bild zum Projekt OPhonLas: OCT-geregelte Laserablation bei Stimmlippen-Phonation

Researcher:

Sontje Ihler, M. Sc., Max-Heinrich Laves, M. Sc.

Duration:

3 Jahre

Funded by:

EFRE (Europäischer Fonds für regionale Entwicklung)

Brief description:

This EFRE-funded project aims to develop a rigid, anatomically shaped laryngoscope equipped with a controllable ablation laser for laryngeal surgery. In addition to the application on resting vocal folds, a laser cut is also to be carried out during a phonation - i.e. on oscillating vocal folds. This enables the treatment of certain pathologies and makes the functional success of the therapy directly visible. The high demands on the real-time control of the laser require the fusion of stereo image data and optical coherence tomographies.

RoCCl - Road Condition Cloud

Bild zum Projekt RoCCl - Road Condition Cloud

Researcher:

M. Sc. Alexander Busch

Duration:

02/2018 - 01/2021

Funded by:

Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG)

Brief description:

As part of the DFG-funded project RoCCl, a time-varying map, the Road Condition Cloud, is developed in cooperation with the Institute of Automotive Engineering of the TU Braunschweig. Therefore the road condition with additional confidence will be estimated by probability-based data fusion of various heterogeneous information from onboard and environmental sensors and transferred to the card. The communication with the RoCCl thus offers the possibility to correctly initialize driver assistance systems with regard to the current road condition at any time.
