Administrative Stuff

Machine Learning:

  • We will be meeting in HRL every Wednesday at noon.
  • Feel free to bring lunch and/or other snackies.

Force Control of Manipulators:

  • We will meet on Mondays at 11:00.

  • 6/30/2010 Thomas Ruckstieb, Martin Felder, Jurgen Schmidhuber. State-Dependent Exploration for Policy Gradient Methods. Machine Learning and Knowledge Discovery in Database (2008) pdf

Force Control of Manipulators:

Notes from JK Salisbury paper. June 21
  • Jun 21, 2010: J.K. Salisbury, "Active stiffness control of a manipulator in Cartesian coordinates," Proc. 19th IEEE Conference on Decision and Control, 1980.
  • Jun 25, 2010:
    • Look at the thumbnail, Notes from JK Salisbury paper.
    • Stuart Glaser's (Stu's) controller: There's no paper. For citations, please cite the wiki page for the teleop_controllers package and the stack version (pr2_cockpit 0.1). The best reference for how it works is the code (attached). The controller is a riff off of "Simplified Acceleration Based Control Variation 1" from this paper (Comparative experiments on task space control with redundancy resolution by Nakanishi, Cory, Mistry, Peters and Schaal, IROS 2005)
  • July 1, 2010:
    • Read the PR1 paper (pdf)
    • Old paper that the PR1 paper cites for gravity compensation with springs. (pdf)(Not very helpful)
    • Continue discussion on Ken Salisbury paper and EPC.
