  • Lee, Mark; Meng, Qinggang (IEEE Press, 2005)
    We describe an approach to sensory-motor learning and coordination that draws from psychology rather than neuroscience. The growth of the motor coordination is controlled through sequential lifting of constraints, which ...
  • Hardy, Nigel William; Nicholls, Howard; Rowland, Jeremy John (Springer, 1993)
    This paper concerns a flexible assembly cell that uses transputers and high performance robotics. We describe our own contribution — the design and implementation of two major software components: the supervisor, which ...
  • Hardy, Nigel William; Rowland, Jeremy John; Nicholls, Howard (World Scientific, 1995-11-30)
  • Hardy, Nigel William; Nicholls, Howard; Rowland, Jeremy John (MCB University Press, 1992)
  • Barnes, David Preston; Tyler, Laurence (2008-11)
    A preliminary baseline design for the ExoMars IDA is the Beagle 2 (B2) arm, and the AU study has made extensive use of the B2 Development Model (DM) arm [Barnes-02, Barnes-03] which was part of the B2 Ground Test Model ...
  • Trianni, Vito; Tuci, Elio (Springer, 2009)
    Swarm Cognition is the juxtaposition of two relatively unrelated concepts that evoke, on the one hand, the power of collective behaviours displayed by natural swarms, and on the other hand the complexity of cognitive ...
  • Trianni, Vito; Tuci, Elio; Passino, Kevin M.; Marshall, James (2011-03-01)
    Basic elements of cognition have been identified in the behaviour displayed by animal collectives, ranging from honeybee swarms to human societies. For example, an insect swarm is often considered a “super-organism” that ...
  • Wilson, James (2010-05-19)
    A system is described which takes synergies extracted from human grasp experiments and maps these onto a robot vision and hand-arm platform to facilitate the transfer of skills \cite{tao2010}. This system forms part of a ...
  • Lee, Mark; Nicholls, Howard (1999-01)
    In this paper we examine the state of the art in tactile sensing for mechatronics. We define a tactile sensor as a device or system that can measure a given property of an object or contact event through physical contact ...
  • Lee, Mark (2000-07)
    Over the past three decades, tactile sensing has developed into a sophisticated technology. There has been a longstanding and widely held expectation that tactile sensors would have a major impact on industrial robotics ...
  • Shang, Changjing; Barnes, David Preston; Shen, Qiang (Springer, 2009)
    This paper presents a novel application of fuzzy-rough setbased feature selection (FRFS) for Mars terrain image classification. The work allows the induction of low-dimensionality feature sets from sample descriptions of ...
  • Williams, Tomos; Rowland, Jeremy John; Lee, Mark Howard; Neal, Mark James (IEEE Press, 2000-04)
    Sectors of the food processing industry have challenging requirements for automation: short batches, product innovation, variation in component shape, all with high production volume. Hard-programmed automation cannot ...
  • Williams, Tomos; Rowland, Jeremy John; Lee, Mark Howard (IEEE Press, 2001-11)
    We report the results of a programme of work that allows us to specify and execute robotic assembly of snack food products such as sandwiches and pizzas simply by presenting to the system hand-prepared examples of the ...
  • Alves, Jose Carlos; Thomas, Barry Malcolm; Neal, Mark; Sauze, Colin (2009-07-10)
    The current generation of sailing robots require a small number of essential components in order to function successfully. These include some kind of sail and a device for de- tecting the direction of the wind, in order ...
  • Timmis, John; Neal, Mark (2003)
    Responses labelled as emotional in the higher animals are frequently portrayed as incidental to the generation of reasonable behavior. Clearly this view is incompatible with the reality of animal behavior as observed in ...
  • Ampatzis, Christos; Santos, Francisco; Trianni, Vito; Tuci, Elio (Springer, 2009)
    In evolutionary robotics, as in the animal world, performing a task which is beneficial to the entire group demands the coordination of different individuals. Whenever time-dependent dynamic allocation of roles is needed ...
  • Labrosse, Frédéric; Oliver, James (2007-09)
    We present in this paper an application of previously developed techniques to the leader-follower formation problem, techniques that exclusively use vision. Contrary to other vision-based methods, the only information ...
  • Lee, Mark; Nehmzow, Ulrich; Rodrigues, Marcos (Palgrave Macmillan, 2012-06-13)
    In cognitive science, modelling has many useful roles, one of which is to inspire attempts to realise an artificially intelligent agent or autonomous robot. However, there still remains a large gulf between the behaviour ...
  • Geng, Tao; Lee, Mark; Hülse, Martin (2011-02)
    In this paper, a system for transferring human grasping skills to a robot is presented. In order to reduce the dimensionality of the grasp postures, we extracted three synergies from data on human grasping experiments and ...
