Paper Abstract

This work describes the development and testing of a 3-D dual-drive surface tracking controller that enables a robot to track along any specified path on the surface of an object. The dual-drive controller computes the normal and tangent vectors relative to movement along the path. The result is controlled movement in 3-D on the surface of an object. It is assumed that the path is generated by an external Recognizer in such a way that the data points collected by tactile sensing along the path will maximize the probability of correctly identifying the object. This tactile data collection method is referred to as `object-dependent' sensing because the location of the sensing paths is driven by comparisons made by the Recognizer to a model data base. The application for such a data collection system is object recognition tasks in environmental exploration and manipulation.
