a sensor that measures acceleration.
the tendency of a force to rotate an object around an axis, fulcrum, or pivot.
kind of DC motor. It is also called BLDC Motors (Brush-Less Direct Current Motors).
a device consisting of one or more electrochemical cells that convert stored chemical energy into electrical energy.
the matrix of partial derivatives of a function. For robot arms, the Jacobian relates joint velocities to end-effector velocity. Jacobian Inverse Kinematic method is one method t…
the use of data from moving sensors to estimate change in position over time.
the construction of a spatial representation by using the sensory information perceived
Lidar (also written LIDAR, LiDAR or LADAR) is a surveying technology that measures distance by illuminating a target with a laser light. Lidar exists as an acronym of Light Detection And Ranging.
the strategy to find a path towards a goal location being optimal or not
a process by which data from several different sensors are "fused" to compute something more than could be determined by any one sensor alone.
the rate of doing work.
the extraction of 3D information from digital images, such as obtained by a CCD camera.
Correlate the readings of a robot's instrument, sensor, etc. with those of a standard in order to check its accuracy. Adjust experimental results to take external factors into account or to allow com…

the parameters associated with a particular convention for attaching reference frames to the links of spatial kinematic chains, or robot manipulators.
A motor, not necessarily electric, which converts energy into some kind of motion.
a closed-loop servomechanism, typically used in radio control model, hobby or small-scale robotics applications. It usually consists of a motor coupled to a sensor (e.g. potent…
the action or process of moving or of changing place or position
A set of machine-readable instructions (most often in the form of a computer program) that directs a computer's processor to perform specific operations.
an outdoor localization system that measures time of flight of a radio signal from a number of satellites in earth orbit.
a combined camera and infrared depth sensor mounted on a motorized pivot and was originally developed for the Microsoft XBox 360.
a compiled general-purpose programming language that adds object-oriented features and other enhancements to the C language. It is popular for both embedded (including robotics) and PC software…
transmitted as a sequence in time. Main advantage: Fewer wires needed. Main disadvantage: Higher bandwidth required for the same throughput.
Unmanned aerial vehicle. See also the tags ugv & auv.
typically a wheeled robot with light sensor(s) beneath it. The goal of the robot is to follow along a line with a distinct color or intensity, e.g. black on white background.
a commonly used drive system, which consists of two independently controlled wheels.
A computer environment where robot parameters can be tested without the need for a physical robot.
electronic speed control/controller, used for DC motor speed control, frequently for RC applications.
The central problems (or goals) of Artificial Intelligence research include reasoning, knowledge, planning, learning, communication, and perception.
a cross-platform library of programming functions for real time computer vision.
a typical task is to identify specific objects in a space and to determine each object's position and orientation relative to some coordinate system.
a consumer-grade autonomous vacuuming robot sold by iRobot.
The point of contact between elements of a robot with the parts that surround and support it
