TWO-DEGREE ADJUSTABLE EXOSKELETON FOR ASSISTANCE OF THE HUMAN ARM USING A MECHANICAL SYSTEM OF FAST ASSEMBLY AND UPGRADABILITY

Julio Restrepo-Zapata/ Carlos Gallego-Duque/ David Marquez-Viloria/ Juan Botero-Valencia

Stroke affects about 975,000 people annually. Currently different robotic systems are used, such as exoskeletons that support motor rehabilitation, where they sometimes increase the patient’s possible recovery rate. But these systems are expensive and often require adequate locations for therapy routines. This article offers the mechanical design of an exoskeleton concept for human upper limbs that allows the attachment to the arm and forearm, offering protection, torque, and movement, plus the (..)

OPERATION PRINCIPLE, ADVANCED PROCEDURES AND VALIDATION OF A NEW FLEX-SPI COMMUNICATION PROTOCOL FOR SMART IoT DEVICES

P. Visconti/ G. Giannotta/ R. Brama/ P. Primiceri/ R. de Fazio/ A. Malvasi

In this paper, we report on hardware structure, operation mode and software development for a new advanced communication protocol whose aim is obtaining a fully shared SPI bus with a fixed amount of wires, without renouncing to advantages of a push-pull output stage and obtaining an architecture capable of great flexibility. All four signals of a classic SPI protocol are entirely shared by the slaves on bus: when a master wants to communicate with a particular device, it will perform an addressi(..)

GRID-EDGE-DEPTH MAP BUILDING EMPLOYING SAD WITH SOBEL EDGE DETECTOR

Budi Rahmani/ Agus Harjoko/ Tri Kuntoro Priyambodo

This paper presents a new method of a map building which is suitable for a wheeled robot. The 2D map represents the obstacle’s position and distance in the environment. The information of the obstacles obtained from a calibrated stereo camera. The stereo images size were 320x240 pixels. Hereafter the images were rectified and the disparity map was built using a Sum of Absolute Difference (SAD) algorithm. The depth map was calculated using disparity map, focal length, and baseline parameter value(..)

A REVIEW ON MULTIPLE-FEATURE-BASED ADAPTIVE SPARSE REPRESENTATION (MFASR) AND OTHER CLASSIFICATION TYPES

S. Srinivasan/ Dr. K. Rajakumar

A new technique Multiple-feature-based adaptive sparse representation (MFASR) has been demonstrated for Hyperspectral Images (HSI’s) classification. This method involves mainly in four steps at the various stages. The spectral and spatial information reflected from the original Hyperspectral Images with four various features. A shape adaptive (SA) spatial region is obtained in each pixel region at the second step. The algorithm namely sparse representation has applied to get the coefficients of (..)

UNSUPERVISED LEARNING FOR RIPENESS ESTIMATION FROM GRAPE SEEDS IMAGES

S. Hernández/ L. Morales/ A. Urrutia

Estimating the current stage of grape ripeness is a crucial step in wine making and becomes especially important during harvesting. Visual inspection of grape seeds is one method to achieve this goal without performing chemical analysis, however this method is prone to failure. In this paper, we propose an unsupervised visual inspection system for grape ripeness estimation using the Dirichlet Mixture Model (DMM). Experimental analysis using real world data demonstrates that our approach can be u(..)

INITIAL ALIGNMENT OF FIBER-OPTIC INERTIAL NAVIGATION SYSTEM WITH LARGE MISALIGNMENT ANGLES BASED ON GENERALIZED PROPORTIONAL-INTEGRAL-DERIVATIVE FILTER

Mohammad Ali Rahgoshay/ Paknoosh Karimaghaie/ Fereidoon Shabaninia

Initial alignment in the presence of large misalignment angles is a critical issue in strapdown inertial navigation systems. The large initial misalignment angle adversely affects the accuracy and rapidness of the alignment process. In this paper a novel robust alignment approach is proposed based on a generalized proportional-integral-derivative filter. The proposed alignment approach has some significant advantages compared to the standard Kalman filter based alignment method. This method incr(..)

HARDWARE IMPLEMENTATION OF METHODOLOGIES OF FIXED POINT DIVISION ALGORITHMS

D. Kumar/ P. Saha/ A. Dandapat

This paper describes the hardware implementation methodologies of fixed point binary division algorithms. The implementations have been extended for the execution of the reciprocal of the binary numbers. Radix-2 (binary) implementations of digit recurrence and multiplicative based methods have been considered for comparison. Functionality of the algorithms have been verified in Verilog hardware description language (HDL) and synthesized in Xilinx ISE 8.2i targeting the device xc4vlx15-12sf363 of(..)

DESIGNING AND PROTOTYPING A SENSORS HEAD FOR TEST AND CERTIFICATION OF UAV COMPONENTS

Francesco Adamo/ Gregorio Andria/ Attilio Di Nisio/ Carlo Guarnieri Calò Carducci/ Aimé Lay-Ekuakille/ Giuseppe Mattencini/ Maurizio Spadavecchia

The project proposed in this paper deals with the design and the development of an embedded test system able to characterize both electrical and mechanical performances of UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) propulsion subsystems (motor and propeller). The measurement data that can be collected are of great interest for professional applications, as well as for amateur makers. Starting from the measures acquired by the presented system, it will be possible to deliver certificates that guarantee the (..)

IDENTIFICATION OF TWO TYPES OF ROTTEN MEAT USING AN ELECTRONIC NOSE FOR FOOD QUALITY CONTROL

Nihad Benabdellah/ Khalid Hachami/ Mohammed Bourhaleb/ Naima Benazzi

Microorganisms are contained in all foods, some of them don't pose a risk for consumers, but many others became pathogenic, because of bad conservation or expired dates. Food will be degraded when the number of microorganisms became very large. The focus in this paper will be on the design of an electronic nose used in detecting rotten food. This nose is applied to detect bad odor diffused by rotten beef, and rotten chicken those meat have almost the same odor at rottenness which is not easily i(..)

INTELLIGENT ENVIRONMENTAL SENSING WITH AN UNMANNED AERIAL SYSTEM IN A WIRELESS SENSOR NETWORK

Ching-Ju Chen/ Jou-An Chen/ Yueh-Min Huang

This paper proposes a novel environmental monitoring mechanism to integrate recentlyestablished development of an Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) with WSNs for remote monitoring. The high mobility of UASs can solve the limitations associated with using WSNs in hazardous areas. In this paper, the WSN node, the Wireless Environmental Monitoring Station (WEMS), is based on ZigBee protocol for long-duration monitoring. Furthermore, to ensure the integrity of collected environmental data, an algorithm i(..)

CIRCULAR TRAFFIC SIGN CLASSIFICATION USING HOGBASED RING PARTITIONED MATCHING

Aryuanto Soetedjo/ I Komang Somawirata

This paper presents a technique to classify the circular traffic sign based-on HOG (histogram of oriented gradients) and a ring partitioned matching. The method divides an image into several ring areas, and calculates the HOG feature on each ring area. In the matching process, the weight is assigned to each ring for calculating the distance of HOG feature between tested image and reference image. The experimental results show that the proposed algorithm achieves a high classification rate of 97.(..)
