By Bruce Randall Donald (auth.), Michael Erdmann, Mark Overmars, David Hsu, Frank van der Stappen (eds.)

Robot algorithms are abstractions of computational procedures that keep an eye on or cause approximately movement and belief within the actual global. simply because activities within the actual international are topic to actual legislation and geometric constraints, the layout and research of robotic algorithms increases a special mix of questions on top of things conception, computational and differential geometry, and machine technological know-how. Algorithms function a unifying topic within the multi-disciplinary box of robotics.

This quantity comprises chosen contributions to the 6th Workshop at the Algorithmic Foundations of Robotics. it is a hugely aggressive assembly of specialists within the box of algorithmic matters regarding robotics and automation.

An obvious way to achieve this goal is to assign heavy penalties for variation in the index width along the current pass. However, for simplicity in our implementation, we used a hard constraint that the index widths at all marker points should be equal. In other words, we consider only those offset passes which maintain a constant spacing from the current pass at all marker points. 3, and 3) reduce the computational cost for index width selection for l marker points and index resolution wres from Uniform Coverage of Simple Surfaces 39 Velocity (mm/sec) 260 240 220 200 180 160 140 0 500 1000 1500 2000 Distance along pass (mm) (b) (a) (c) Fig.

2 Index Width Optimization Results To study the effect of index width optimization on paint deposition uniformity, we consider a variety of target surfaces, generate passes for each of them and evaluate the paint deposition uniformity by simulating the paint deposition process (see Table 2). In each case, we set the maximum allowed normalized standard deviation at 4% and assume sufficient overspray to minimize the boundary effects. We observe that the index optimization yields the desired uniformity in cases where the surface curvature remains the same along the indexing curve.
