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...

Vertical Transfers and Tax Competition : Does Trade Integration Matter?

Madiès, Thierry ; Taugourdeau, Emmanuelle

In: Social Choice and Welfare, 2020, vol. 55, p. 453-475

Our paper presents a model of decentralized leadership with fiscal equalization and imperfect trade liberalization. The degree of trade integration (reflected by trade costs) turns out to have an effect on both state corporate taxes and ex-post vertical equalization transfers. Our main results are the following: when public goods are highly valued by the citizens of the federation, ex post...

Predicting failures in complex multi-tier systems

Xin, Rui ; Pezzè, Mauro (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Università della Svizzera italiana, 2020 ; 2020INFO017.

Complex multi-tier systems are composed of many distributed machines, feature multi-layer architecture and offer different types of services. Shared complex multi-tier systems, such as cloud systems, reduce costs and improves resource utilization efficiency, with a considerable amount of complexity and dynamics that challenge the reliability of the system. The new challenges of complex...
