6D virtual sensor for wrench estimation in robotized interaction tasks exploiting extended Kalman filter

Roveda, Loris ; Bussolan, Andrea ; Braghin, Francesco ; Piga, Dario

In: Machines, 2020, vol. 8, no. 4, p. 17

Industrial robots are commonly used to perform interaction tasks (such as assemblies or polishing), requiring the robot to be in contact with the surrounding environment. Such environments are (partially) unknown to the robot controller. Therefore, there is the need to implement interaction controllers capable of suitably reacting to the established contacts. Although standard force controllers...

Compensation and benefits policy design and implementation : a company’s key to success

Mir, Déborah Isabelle ; Butty, Philippe (Dir.)

Mémoire de bachelor : Haute école de gestion de Genève, 2020 ; TDEE 406.

Compensation and Benefits (C&B) plays an important role in today’s competitive world whilst aspects relating to employee wellness are also being given increasing consideration by employers. Given the importance of this matter, this thesis explores the elements that need to be considered by Executive and Human Resources Management when designing an effective C&B policy. When well designed, a...

Building blocks for leveraging in-network computing

Jepsen, Theo ; Soulé, Robert (Dir.) ; Pedone, Fernando (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Università della Svizzera italiana, 2020 ; 2020INFO012.

With the end of Moore's law and Dennard scaling, applications no longer enjoy performance improvements by simply waiting for the next generation of CPUs. This has led to the rise of domain-specific computing. As developers try to squeeze more performance out of applications, they have offloaded application functionality to specialized hardware, such as GPUs, FPGAs and ASICs. Programming these...

Miniaturized Doppler radar sensor for non-contact vital sign detection

Balle, Marcel ; Andersson, Alexandra (Dir.)

Mémoire de bachelor : Haute Ecole d'Ingénierie, 2018.

Non-contact vital sign detection based on Doppler radar systems presents several advantages in bio-medical and healthcare applications. Many research efforts have been proposed in this field to obtain accuracy and effectiveness for reliable wireless bio-signal detection. However front-end architectures, demodulation algorithms and signal processing methods can be further improved to retrieve...
