Journal Article
Mahboubi, S., Davis, S., & Nefti-Meziani, S. (2018). Variable stiffness robotic hand for stable grasp and flexible handling. IEEE Access, 6, 68195-68209. https://doi.org/10.1109/ACCESS.2018.2879633

Robotic grasping is a challenging area in the field of robotics. When interacting with an object, the dynamic properties of the object will play an important role where a gripper (as a system), which has been shown to be stable as per appropriate sta...

High-performing adaptive grasp for a robotic gripper using super twisting sliding mode control (2017)
Book Chapter
Mahboubi, S., Milella, F., Davis, S., & Nefti-Meziani, S. (2017). High-performing adaptive grasp for a robotic gripper using super twisting sliding mode control. In 2017 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA). IEEE. https://doi.org/10.1109/ICRA.2017.7989688

Grasping an object in the presence of unpredictable disturbances and with no previous knowledge of the geometry and mass distribution of it represents a significant challenge in Robotics. Also, grasping an object with sufficient force to prevent... Read More about High-performing adaptive grasp for a robotic gripper using super twisting sliding mode control.

Two bioinspired mobile manipulators with rolling locomotion (2016)
Journal Article
Mahboubi, S., Fakhrabadi, M., Davis, S., & Nefti-Meziani, S. (2016). Two bioinspired mobile manipulators with rolling locomotion. Journal of Bionic Engineering, 13(1), 48-58. https://doi.org/10.1016/S1672-6529%2814%2960159-1

This paper deals with two novel structures for mobile robots. The original inspiration of the robots comes from a salamander and a specific kind of spiders. Our robots have some especial moving capabilities causing to increase the robot maneuverabili... Read More about Two bioinspired mobile manipulators with rolling locomotion.
