An overview of the robotic excavation project at the Australian Center for Field Robotics at The University of Sydney is presented. The experimental machine, retrofitted from a commercial mini-excavator, and its instrumentation are described. Estimation and control strategies applied to the robotic excavator digger are briefly presented. Variable-structure-based techniques are employed to implement impedance control of excavator dynamics, and position/force control of the electrohydraulic systems for each working axis. This control takes into consideration uncertainties in modeling, friction, and bucket-soil interactions.
