When Robots Know What to Reach for - Contact-Based Motion Planning [1]

28. Mai 2020

We all tried to navigate in a dark room in the middle of the night. Even when we know the room, it is challenging because our visual perception is high uncertainty. Uncertain perception and motion make motion planning an even harder problem. But reaching out to the wall to guide our hand is a simple and robust way because contact not just reduces uncertainty in our location. mehr zu: When Robots Know What to Reach for - Contact-Based Motion Planning [2]

Proportional Valves for Precise Air-Mass/Air-Flow Control of Soft Pneumatic Actuators [3]

27. Mai 2020

The soft robotic hands developed in our lab are pneumatically actuated. That means, by opening inflation and deflation valves in a controlled manner, we can control the enclosed air in a particular air-chamber. The valves used are so called “binary valves”, referring to the characteristic that they only can take on two different states – open/closed. This comes with a drawback. If we want to close the fingers of the hand slowly, lets say to grasp an object, we need to open-close-open-close the valves in a bang-bang controlled manner that results in jittery movements of the finger. To enable smooth and slow movements, we would need a way to regulate the air-flow that is introduced when we open the valves. Proportional valves are a way to tackle this problem. Unlike binary control valves which produce full flow when energized, proportional control valves produce pressure or flow proportional to an electrical signal. In recent years valves of this kind that satisfy our pressure-range requirements have become commercially available. mehr zu: Proportional Valves for Precise Air-Mass/Air-Flow Control of Soft Pneumatic Actuators [4]

Human-Like Grasping With Robot-Like Reactiveness [5]

28. Mai 2020

If we want robots to help with daily chores, first they need to interact with their environment physically, and second, these machines need to accept their imperfection both in their motion and perception. This is a difficult problem because modeling the environment and dynamic interactions are either a weak approximation or too complex to plan robustly or efficiently. mehr zu: Human-Like Grasping With Robot-Like Reactiveness [6]

Leveraging Data from Mass Spectrometry to Improve Cross-Links [7]

Bild

Cross-Links are experimentally derived distance constraints that can be used to guide protein structure prediction. The current cross-linking data is obtained from multiple mass spectrometer runs and pre-filtered. In the pre-fltering step we lose a lot of information. For instance, there is ambiguity in the data that is currently handled in a greedy fashion. The idea of this project is to go one step back and look at the "raw" data from the mass spectrometry experiments. The hope is by including external information and dealing directly with the ambiguity in the data we can improve the number of cross-links and/or need fewer experiments for a similar yield. mehr zu: Leveraging Data from Mass Spectrometry to Improve Cross-Links [8]

Leveraging Crosslinks for Template Retrieval [9]

Bild

Cross-Link Mass Spectometry is an experimental technique that provides residue distance constraints on the native structure. The method has been previously used to guide ab initio protein structure prediction. You will develop in this thesis a method that leverages cross-links to find homologous structures to the target in the PDB. For that, you will compare the distance constraints provided by cross-links with simulated cross-links for the templates from the PDB. mehr zu: Leveraging Crosslinks for Template Retrieval [10]
