Dynamic control of mobile manipulation in industrial environment

Extending the workspace of conventional robotic manipulator increases its potential applications, particularly to the operation for large structures and components. Many of such large scale components are common in aerospace, marine and oil and gas industries. Besides hardware integration of a manipulator to a mobile base, the technology will also deliver capability in redundant robot (compliant) control, as well as safe and autonomous maneuverability of the mobile base within the desired workspace.
