About

José Lima (male) received the M.Sc. and PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering on Faculty of Engineering of University of Porto, Portugal in 2001 and 2009. He joined the Polytechnic Institute of Bragança in 2002, and currently he is a Professor in the Electrical Engineering Department of that school. He is also a senior researcher in Centre for Robotics in Industry and Intelligent Systems group of the INESC-TEC (Institute for Systems and Computer Engineering of Porto, Portugal). He has published more than 60 papers in international scientific journals and conference proceedings. In addition, he participated in some autonomous mobile robotics competitions and applications. Moreover, his research interests are in the field of robotics and automation: simulation, path planning, image processing, localization, navigation, obstacle avoidance and perception. He participated in some national and FP7 funded projects such as Produtech, Grace, Arum, Carlos, Stamina and ColRobot.

Abstract
In order to study the behavior and performance of a robot, building its simulation model is crucial. Realistic simulation tools using physics engines enable faster, more accurate and realistic testing conditions, without depending on the real vehicle. By combining legged and wheeled locomotion, hybrid vehicles are specially useful for operating in different types of terrains, both indoors and outdoors. They present increased mobility, versatility and adaptability, as well as easier maneuverability, when compared to vehicles using only one of the mechanisms. This paper presents the realistic simulation through the SimTwo simulator software of a hybrid legged-wheeled robot. It has four 3-DOF (degrees of freedom) legs combining rigid and non-rigid joints and has been fully designed, tested and validated in the simulated environment with incorporated dynamics. © 2022, The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Switzerland AG.

Design and Modelling of a Modular Robotic Joint

Publication
Lecture Notes in Networks and Systems

Abstract
The industry tends to increasingly automate as many processes as possible, and to make this possible, they often resort to the use of robotic arms. This paper presents the development of a proposal for a modular joint for robotic arms that allows: to obtain the best possible torque/weight ratio; to be controlled in speed and/or position; to communicate with other joints and external microcontrollers; to keep the cost as low as possible; and to be easily reconfigurable. The proposed prototype was validated with real results. © 2022, The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Switzerland AG.
