Congratulations to Giovanni, James, Federico, Simone, Aleks and Bruno for having their papers accepted for presentation at IROS 2020.
Dual-Arm Control for Enhanced Magnetic Manipulation
By enhancing manipulability of magnetically actuated endoscopic tentacles, by introducing a novel dual-arm controllable magnetic actuation. The capabilities of single permanent magnet robotic actuation are shown to be improved via dual arm manipulation; with the introduction of independent control of the magnetic field alongside its independent differentials we increase the number of magnetically controllable DOFs from 5 to 8.
