    	abstract = "This paper presents a novel approach for the description of physical human-robot interaction (pHRI) tasks that involve two-arm coordination, and where tasks are described by the relative pose between the human hand and the robot hand. We develop a unified kinematic model that takes into account the human-robot system from a holistic point of view, and we also propose a kinematic control strategy for pHRI that comprises different levels of shared autonomy. Since the kinematic model takes into account the complete human-robot interaction system and the kinematic control law is closed loop at the interaction level, the kinematic constraints of the task are enforced during its execution. Experiments are performed in order to validate the proposed approach, including a particular case where the robot controls the human arm by means of functional electrical stimulation (FES), which may potentially provide useful solutions for the interaction between assistant robots and impaired individuals (e.g., quadriplegics and hemiplegics).",

In this paper$\backslash$na distributed control problem for unmanned surface vessels$\backslash$n(USVs) is formulated as follows: there are N USVs which$\backslash$npursue another vessel (moving target). Each USV can be$\backslash$nequipped with various sensors, such as IMU, cameras and$\backslash$nnon-imaging sensors such as sonar, radar and thermal signature$\backslash$nsensors. At each time instant each USV can obtain$\backslash$nmeasurements of the target's cartesian coordinates. Additionally,$\backslash$neach USV is aware of the target's distance from$\backslash$na reference monitoring station (coastal or satellite monitoring$\backslash$nunits). The objective is to make the USVs converge in a$\backslash$nsynchronized manner towards the target, while avoiding collisions$\backslash$nbetween them and avoiding collisions with obstacles$\backslash$nin their motion plane. A distributed control law is developed$\backslash$nfor the USVs which enables not only convergence of$\backslash$nthe USVs to the goal position, but also makes possible to$\backslash$nmaintain the cohesion of the multi-USV system. Moreover,$\backslash$ndistributed filtering is performed, so as to obtain an estimate$\backslash$nof the target vessel's state vector. This provides the desirable$\backslash$nstate vector to be tracked by each one of the USVs. To this end, a new distributed nonlinear filtering method$\backslash$nof improved accuracy and computation speed is introduced.$\backslash$nThis filtering approach, under the name Derivative-free distributed$\backslash$nnonlinear Kalman filter is based on differential$\backslash$nflatness theory and on an exact linearization of the target$\backslash$nvessel's dynamic/kinematic model. The performance of the$\backslash$nproposed distributed filtering scheme is compared against the$\backslash$nExtended and the Unscented Information filter.",

The main contribution of this work lies in the mathemati- cal proofs of the proposed strategy for a given UAV model. We consider minimum and maximum limits in the forward speed command, maximum limit in the absolute value of the yawrate, maximum limit in the absolute value of the altitude speed, second-order dynamics, and a non-holonomic con- straint. Stability and collision avoidance are guaranteed dur- ing the whole task including the stage transitions and without violating the constraints.

Our approach deals with static and dynamic obstacles. Considerations such as finite size and nonholonomic constraints are also addressed. In the absence of obstacles, we prove the stability and convergence of controllers that are based on the SPH method.

The system is modeled via Euler-Lagrange formulation considering both the dynamics of the Tilt-rotor UAV and the pendulum. As for the nonlinear control design, a three-level cascade strategy is proposed. Each level of the cascade system executes a control law designed through the method of input-output feedback linearization. Simulation results are carried out to corroborate the proposed control strategy.",

The main objective is, in the presence of exogenous disturbances, to ensure that the inclination angle of the pendulum (controlled DOF) is led to the upper vertical position, while the angular velocity of the wheels (the time-derivative of the remaining DOF) can be set in a desired reference value. Thus, the angular position of the wheels (remaining DOF) is driven to steady state, i.e., it is maintained stabilized (static equilibrium) (????=0rad/s), or at least its velocity (mechanical equilibrium) (????=const.rad/s). The proposed controller considers the whole dynamics of the system into its structure, ensuring that the overall system is closed-loop stable. Furthermore, an improvement of the nonlinear H??? control tuning method for mechanical systems is developed. Experimental results are carried out with a real two-wheeled vehicle in the presence of external disturbances, unmodeled dynamics and from extreme initial conditions.",

The experiment was divided in three parts: in the first one, the subject only observes the movement of the robotic manipulator; in the second part, the subject follows the robot movement with his right arm; finally, in the third part, the subject imagines the execution of the corresponding movement synchronized with the robot movement. Event related (de)synchronization in each of the recorded electroencephalogram channels was analyzed. Event related desynchronization was present in alpha and beta bands in various areas of the cortex, including occipital, parietal, central and prefrontal areas. The results provided some physiological insights into human-robot interaction for future developments in brain-machine interfaces.",
