Jiří Zemánek: Feedback linearization approach to distributed planar manipulation
Fri, 06/15/2012

Open seminar/talk in KN:E-301 (K9, aka Vycichlova knihovna) room at Karlovo namesti. The talk formulates the problem of a distributed planar manipulation realized by shaping a spatially continuous force field. It also suggests a control strategy based on feedback linearization. Force fields derived from potential fields are considered.
