Wireless sensing of open loop micro inductors using Helmholtz coil

A. Yousaf/ F.A. Khan/ Prof. Dr. L.M Reindl

This paper reports wireless sensing of open loop micro inductors parameters i.e. distributed capacitance, inductance, resistance and Q factor in presence uniform magnetic fields generated by Helmholtz coils pair. A frequency dependent analytical model is developed which models the inductively coupled system including the effects generated by the presence of test micro coil in uniform magnetic field. Micro inductor parameters are extracted from the remotely measured impedance signal and compared (..)

BIOLOGICALLY-INSPIRED SIGNAL PROCESSOR USING LATERAL INHIBITION AND INTEGRATIVE FUNCTION MECHANISMS FOR HIGH INSTANTANEOUS DYNAMIC RANGE

Kiran George/ Chien-In Henry Chen

This paper presents a biologically-inspired signal processor, which allows selective amplification of signals, and signal channeling mechanism to increase the contrast and sharpness of the perceived signals. The processor draws influence from lateral inhibition and integrative function mechanisms of the human nervous system. The uniqueness of the proposed design is that it combines two intelligent signal transmission mechanisms of the human nervous system with desirable capabilities: 1) wide inp(..)

DESIGN OF AUTO-FOCUSING MODULES IN CELL PHONE CAMERAS

L. K. Lai/ T. S. Liu

Endowed with Hall-effect sensors and voice coil motors, cell phone cameras as intelligent systems are capable to execute auto-focusing for acquiring sharp image. For the use of cell phone cameras, this study presents an innovative auto-focusing module. When coils are powered, induced magnetic fields generate N and S poles around iron cores in the actuator. Unlike voice coil motors that employ Lorentz force, the motion of the moving part in this study is arisen from a magnetic pole property - sam(..)

BOTTOM-UP APPROACH FOR BEHAVIOR ACQUISITION OF AGENTS EQUIPPED WITH MULTI-SENSORS

Naoto Hoshikawa/ Masahiro Ohka/ Hanafiah Bin Yussof

While the top-down approach of artificial intelligence encounters the frame problem, the bottom-up approach based on a creature’s evolution and behavior is effective for robotic design of intellectual behavior in a specific field. We propose the Evolutionary Behavior Table System (EBTS) using a simple genetic algorithm (SGA) to acquire the autonomous cooperative behavior of multi-agents as the bottom-up approach. In EBTS, a set of rules is expressed as a table composed of sensor input columns an(..)

Type-2 Fuzzy Kalman Hybrid Application for Dynamic Security Monitoring Systems based on Multiple Sensor Fusion

T. K. Dakhlallah/ M. A. Zohdy/ O.M. Salim

Multiple sensors fusion plays a major role in situation awareness, especially in modern dynamic security monitoring and tracking applications. In this paper, we focus on a specific effective set of complementary sensors [Laser (for speed measurements), Sonar (for space scanning) and RF (for access rights)]. A novel multi-agent system is obtained by fusing the above types of sensory data taking advantages of similarity and complementarity concepts. Furthermore, Kalman Filter is utilized to track (..)

A Hybrid MAC Mechanism for Multiple Load Intelligent Vehicle Transportation Network

Yuan LIU/ Yuhao WANG/ Siyue CHEN/ Xiao LI/ Zhengfa RAO

The Media Access Control (MAC) mechanism of intelligent vehicle communication network meets a new challenge due to the multiple load data traffic and high speed mobility. This paper proposes a hybrid MAC mechanism which takes the advantages of both TDMA and CSMA mechanism. This hybrid mechanism is based on TDMA, while CSMA mechanism is added in time slots to improve the slot utilization in both high and low load networks. Through the simulation in NS2 we compare the results of the hybrid MAC pro(..)

EFFECTS OF PLACEMENT ERRORS ON PERFORMANCE OF VLF METAL DETECTOR HEADS

Lawrence J. Carter/ Zhuoran Tang

Metal-detector performance depends heavily on the sensor head. Errors in coil placement within the head can lead to degradation in detector performance. Electromagnetic modelling of typical very-low-frequency detector heads shows the effect of coil placement errors on detector sensitivity. Provided the bucking coil ‘tracks’ the receive coil, required error corrections can remain small. A correctly-aligned head could detect a gold ring target at a range of about 12 cm.

DEVICE APPLICATION OF NON-EQUILIBRIUM MOS CAPACITORS FABRICATED ON HIGH RESISTIVITY SILICON

O. Malik/ F. J. De la Hidalga-W

This work shows that the direct pulse-wide-modulated (PWM) output electric signal, with a duty cycle controlled by light intensity, can be obtained using a circuit that contains a saw-tooth voltage generator connected in series with a dc voltage source and a metal (semitransparent gate) oxide semiconductor capacitor (MOS-C) operating in non-equilibrium mode. Amplified output signal presents positive and negative PWM waveforms that can be easily separated using diodes. The duty of the positive pa(..)

Mitesh Parmar/ K. Rajanna

A nanostructured copper (II) oxide film deposited by reactive DC-magnetron sputtering technique, has been studied for static sensor response towards methanol and ethanol by operating temperature and analyte concentration modulations. The optimum operating temperature (Topt) for the sensing of methanol and ethanol is observed to be 350 ˚C and 400 ˚C, respectively. The maximum sensitivity observed for 2500 ppm methanol and ethanol is 29% and 15.4% respectively. Another important observation is tha(..)
