  • 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 Berlin Heidelberg, 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, 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, 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; 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 Berlin Heidelberg, 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Tuci, Elio; Nolfi, Stefano; Mirolli, Marco; Ferrauto, Tomassino; Massera, Gianluca (2009-10-12)
    Active perception refers to a theoretical approach grounded on the idea that perception is an active process in which the actions performed by the agent play a constitutive role. In this paper we present two different ...
  • Hardy, Nigel; Armstrong, Edwin (Pergamon, 2001-07-27)
  • Hardy, Nigel; Ahmad, Aftab (1999-11)
    Virtual sensors (software abstractions to support programming of sensor use) have been shown to have software-engineering benefits. A sensor integration system is required to support them. We examine the general requirements ...
  • Labrosse, Frederic (2006-10)
    In this article we present an algorithm to estimate the orientation of a robot relative to an orientation specified at the beginning of the process. This is done by computing the rotation of the robot between successive ...
  • Law, James; Johnson, Jeffrey (2006)
    Cooperation and communication are two of the fundamental problems associated with research into multirobot systems. In our work we examine the interactions of a team of robot footballers. Like computer chess and Go, robot ...
