  • High Speed Direct-Drive Robots High Speed Direct-Drive Robots

Biomimetic locomotion is of interest in applications where good cruising speeds, high maneuverability and stealth are needed. Current Biomimetic devices that use traditional discrete-stiff mechanisms have severe limitations because of their complexity. The proposed approach exploits the natural dynamics of a flexible structure in order to achieve the body motions needed to implement Biomimetic swimming performance.

Liquid natural gas and liquid petroleum gas are stored in steel alloy tanks at approximately -160C and -45C, respectively. These tanks need to be periodically inspected for cracks, corrosion, and other defects. Currently the inspection process involves sending a human into the emptied tanks with inspection equipment. In order to make the tanks safe for human ingress they need to be warmed for 10-14 days. The cost of this shutdown is about 15 million dollars per day and is still hazardous for the human inspectors. This project is to develop an inspection robot that can enter the tanks at much lower temperatures thus reducing the maintenance costs and limit the risk to human inspectors. There are many robotic inspection systems out there, but these systems are not designed for cold and hazardous conditions, thus they would not be suitable for placement into the tanks in question. A new system needs to be designed which can work inside the tank under cryogenic temperatures and hazardous conditions to inspect the floor of the tank. Past work has been focused on the localization of the robot within the tank, and current work is investigating a thermal control system for the robot when operating inside the cold and hazardous environment.

High-Speed Large-Range Atomic Force Microscopy

Atomic force microscope(AFM) is a powerful and versatile instrument with a wide variety of applications ranging from imaging and nano-manipulation to characterizing mechanical properties of various types of samples. The speed limitations of this device however, have constrained its capabilities. In this research we develop controls, instrumentation and signal processing techniques to achieve ultra-high imaging speed for AFM and unlock its true ability. The new possibilities made available through the contributions of this research will be explored in areas such as materials, and biological sciences.

See our latest work on the design of a high-speed large-range atomic force microscope. This work is highlighted  in Boston Globe and MIT-news.

Left: A schematic view of the designed AFM and Right: the AFM setup with a close-up view of the multi-actuated scanner. Various components are labeled/numbered similarly in (a) and (b). The scanner is composed of a (from top to bottom) (1)fast/short-range out-of-plane actuator (Z2), (2) fast/short-range lateral positioner (X2) for raster
scan, (3) slow/large-range out-of-plane actuator (Z1), (4) slow/large-range lateral actuator (X1) for raster scan,and (5) slow/large-range lateral actuator for frameup/down motion (Y).

Multi-actuation can also be used to retroactively enhance existing AFM setups. See our paper on this approach here.

Project Overview

Leakage is the major factor for unaccounted losses in every pipe network around the world (oil, gas, or water). In most cases, the deleterious effects associated with the occurrence of leaks may present serious economical and health problems. Therefore, leaks must be quickly detected, located, and repaired. Unfortunately, most state-of-the-art leak detection systems have limited applicability, are neither reliable nor robust, while others depend on the user experience.

In this project we work towards a new in-pipe leak detection system. Our proposed robotic system is able to detect leaks in pipes in a reliable and autonomous fashion. The idea is that the robot is inserted into the network via special insertion points. The robotic system inspects the network and sends signals wirelessly via relay stations to a computer/base station. Leak signals stand out clearly on the occurrence of leaks, eliminating the need for the user experience.

The latter is achieved via a detector that is based on identifying a clear pressure gradient in the vicinity of leaks. Detection is based on identifying the existence of a localized pressure gradient (∂p/∂r , where r stands for the radial coordinate of the pipe). This pressure gradient appears always in pressurized pipes in the vicinity of leaks and is independent of the pipe size and/or pipe material. Moreover, the pressure gradient exists in different media inside pipes, which makes the detection method widely applicable (gas, oil, water pipes, etc.). Moreover, the proposed detector can sense leaks at any angle around the circumference of the pipe with only two sensors.
