Conference Paper
In this paper we present the concept design and analysis of a robot for rehabilitation and assistance, named Magic Ladder. The different tasks that the device is be able to execute have been determined based on statistical information on the types of disabilities most common in Spain. In this work, we review the different robots for rehabilitation...
Book

This book gathers the proceedings of the 3rd Latin American Congress on Automation and Robotics, held at Monterrey, Mexico, on November 17–19, 2021. This book presents recent advances in the modeling, design, control, and development of autonomous and robotic systems and explores current exciting applications and future challenges of these technolo...
Patent
This is a semiautomatic machine to help to tape harnesses, currently is a process made all hand and the quality of the taping depends of the expertises of the operator, with this machine the operator could be able to tape faster and waste less time
Chapter
Lower limb disabilities hinder or impede performing various activities of daily living and productive tasks. Sit to stand (STS) and walking are intrinsically related tasks, and for this reason, the rehabilitation of people with lower limb disabilities includes techniques for both tasks. The purpose of this document is to provide relevant informatio...
Article
In this paper, the kinematic analysis of a series of variable geometry legged wheels is presented. These mechanisms can transform a circular wheel into a hybrid legged wheel in order to combine the efficiency and ability to traverse difficult terrain of each method of locomotion. The inverse and direct kinematic problems of position and velocity ar...
Chapter
There is a large number of people in Mexico and around the world with lower limb disabilities, some of them have no chance of recovery but others with adequate rehabilitation can regain their mobility. Common rehabilitation needs are the sit to stand (STS) movement and walking. This paper presents the kinematic analysis of a robot for STS and gait...
Chapter
This paper presents the static force analysis of a RSRR HeIse wheel. This device consist of a 2 DOF mechanism that can transform a circular wheel into a hybrid wheel with multiple limbs. The presented analysis determines the forces acting on the joints of the mechanism and the required forces at the actuators to achieve static equilibrium given an...

p>En este documento se presenta una familia de mecanismos de dos grados de libertad para implementar ruedas híbridas de geometría variable. Estos mecanismos son capaces de transformar una rueda circular en una rueda híbrida con múltiples piernas desplegables. En este trabajo se describen los principales atributos y ventajas de los mecanismos, a los...
Chapter
This paper applies basic concepts of fault detection for a sinusoidal power inverter when a fault is induced in the electronic control using the internal model principle for a sinusoidal reference waveform.
Chapter
This paper shows an approach to use a Neural Network trained by the classic backpropagation algorithm for solving the problem of fault detection and isolation (FDI) of simple mechanisms subject to failures in actuators. The approach taken was to reserve the term of the projection of the tuning algorithm used for keeping bounded the weight, and use...
Chapter
There is a large part of the population that needs technical assistance to accomplish with activities of daily living, among them are the elderly and those with a physical disability. We found that a technical assistance that is commonly needed by those users is to help to stand up or sit down. This work presents the dynamic analysis of a robotic d...
Chapter
The design of a 2 degree of freedom (DOF) mechanism for a variable geometry hybrid wheel is presented in this paper. The mechanism allows transforming a circular wheel in a hybrid one with multiple limbs. It is actuated by both rotational and a linear motors mounted on the vehicle chassis. The former rotates the wheel and the linear motor makes tha...
Book
This book contains the proceedings of the 1st Latin American Congress on Automation and Robotics held at Panama City, Panama in February 2017. It gathers research work from researchers, scientists, and engineers from academia and private industry, and presents current and exciting research applications and future challenges in Latin American. The...
Chapter
Artificial intelligence has opened new alternatives to control non-linear systems. One of the most important methods is the fuzzy logic controller, which is constructed with linguistic rules; however, it is normally based on the knowledge from human experts, so the linguistic rules and membership functions are not optimized. In the case of Quadroto...
Conference Paper
Current demands for continuous innovation have made the product design and development process a branch of engineering itself. Several techniques have been proposed to address the problem of developing a new product in a systematic way [1][2]. In this paper we use some of these techniques and adjust them to carry out the conceptual design of a robo...

The performance indices are important tools for motion planning and design of robot manipulators. In this paper we present a collection of some of the performance indices that have generated interest in the robotics community. These indices are four different types: kinetostatic performance indices, dynamic performance indices, indices of joint lim...

This study introduces the concept design and analysis of a robotic system for the assistance and rehabilitation of disabled people. Based on the statistical data of the most common types of disabilities in Spain and other industrialized countries, the different tasks that the device must be able to perform have been determined. In this study, diffe...
Conference Paper
In this paper we present the kinematic analysis of an Underwater Parallel Robot, named Remo II. Due to its structure, this robot requires a smaller number of thrusters to navigate than other underwater vehicles. However, the kinematics of this robot is more complex than that of conventional underwater robots. The inverse position, velocity and acce...

In this paper we propose a strategy for modelling a human hand for Haptics interaction. The strategy consists in a parallel computing architecture that calculates the dynamics of a hand; this is accomplished by computing the dynamics of each finger in a parallel manner. In this approach multiple threads (e.g. haptics thread, graphics thread, collis...
