Abstract:

We are creating a new paradigm for building and maintaining complex real-time software systems for the control of moving mechanical systems. This objective is being met through the simultaneous development of both a powerful software environment and cogent motion planning and control capabilities. Our research concentrates on three key areas 1 Building an innovative, powerful real-time software framework 2 Implementing new distributed control architectures for intelligent mechanical systems and 3 Developing distribution architectures and new algorithms for the computationally hard motion planning and direction problem. Perhaps more importantly, we are working on the vertical integration of these technologies into a powerful, working system. It is only through this coordinated, cooperative approach that a truly revolutionary, usable architecture can result.
