Spatial-temporal Collaborative Sequential Monte Carlo for Mobile Robot Localization in Distributed Intelligent Environments

Kun Qian/ Xudong Ma/ Xian Zhong Dai/ Fang Fang

In this paper, a spatial-temporal collaborative sequential Monte Carlo architecture for mobile robot localization is designed to well suites intelligent environment for service robotic system. A proposed algorithm, namely Distributed Proportional Allocation-Augmented Particle Filter (DPA-APF), resolves the sensor collaboration problem by the processes of augmented sampling, inter-node resampling, inner-node resampling and particle exchange. These procedures exploit data parallelism and pipelinin(..)

PASSIVE UHF RFID STRAIN SENSOR TAG FOR DETECTING LIMB MOVEMENT

S. Merilampi/ T. Björninen/ L. Sydänheimo/ L. Ukkonen

A strain sensor tag with screen printed antenna for seamless integration with clothing is examined to provide a wireless method for monitoring of human body movements. The strain response of the tag is investigated in air and on human body. While the results indicate strong antenna-body interaction, the strain response of the tag is found to be a monotonic function of the strain.

Monitoring the Postural Stability of Planar Bipedal Robots using the Moment-Height Stability Measure

Mansoor Alghooneh/ Amir Takhmar/ S. Ali. A. Moosavian

Robotics researchers have studied the stability maintenance requirements of bipedal robots since they are inherently unstable. An accurate postural stability measure is required to monitor their dynamic equilibrium conditions. In this article, the novel Moment-Height Stability (MHS) measure, which has previously been developed for monitoring the postural stability of wheeled mobile robots, is developed for that of bipedal robots. The performance of the MHS is evaluated with that of the well-know(..)

OPTICAL PROBE CURRENT SENSOR MODULE USING THE KERR EFFECT OF EXCHANGE-COUPLED MAGNETIC FILM AND ITS APPLICATION TO IGBT SWITCHING CURRENT MEASUREMENTS

K. Ogawa/ S. Suzuki/ M. Sonehara/ T. Sato/ K. Asanuma

An optical probe current sensor module using the Kerr effect of exchange-coupled magnetic film has been fabricated and applied to switching current measurements for IGBT used for the DC-DC converter and the DC-AC inverter of EV/HEV. Since the sensor module using the Kerr effect of the single domain exchange-coupled magnetic film utilizes magnetization rotation only, Barkhausen noise due to domain wall pinning can be excluded. The current sensor consists of a Laser-diode, a polarizer, a Fe-Si/Mn-(..)

PRACTICAL SWAY MOTION CONTROL FOR DOUBLE PENDULUM-TYPE OVERHEAD CRANE SYSTEM

M. N. A. Zohari/ M. Z. Mohd Tumari/ M. S. Saealal/ K.H. Ghazali/ M.S. Ramli

The sway motion of crane can be successfully suppressed by properly shaping the reference command. Input shaping is a one type of feed-forward shaping method that is based on linear superposition. In this paper, we present the impact of double pendulum type overhead crane (DPTOC) system on the effectiveness of input shaping. An unshaped bang-bang input force is used to determine the characteristic parameters of the system for design and evaluation of the input shaping control techniques. The inp(..)

SYNTHESIS OF SrTiO3 NANOPOWDER BY SOL-GEL- HYDROTHEMAL METHOD FOR GAS SENSING APPLICATION

D. D. Kajale/ G. E. Patil/ V. B. Gaikwad/ S. D. Shinde/ D. N. Chavan/ N. K. Pawar/ S. R. Shirsath/ G. H. Jain

Strontium titanate (SrTiO3) nanopowder has been synthesized through a sol-gel-hydrothermal method. The X-ray diffraction studies of SrTiO3 nanopowder have shown that the as-prepared powder was single phase, crystalline, and has a cubic perovskite structure (ABO3) with a lattice constant a = 3.903 Å. The particle size calculated from FWHM was ∼22 nm. SrTiO3 nanopowder was examined using thermo gravimetric analysis; differential thermal analysis and UV-visible absorption spectroscopy. The transmis(..)

NANOSTRUCTURED Fe2O3 THICK FILM AS AN ETHANOL SENSOR

N. K. Pawar/ D. D. Kajale/ G. E. Patil/ V. G. Wagh/ V. B. Gaikwad/ M. K. Deore/ G. H. Jain

Thick films of AR Grade nano Fe2O3 material with n-type semiconducting properties were prepared and tested for their gas sensing performances. Thick films of the materials were prepared by screen printing technique. The gas sensing performance was studied using static gas sensing system. The material was tested for various gases such as CO, CO2, NH3, Cl2, H2, LPG, ethanol and H2S. The nano Fe2O3 film showed maximum sensitivity to ethanol gas at 350 oC temperature at 250 ppm concentration with sh(..)

OPTIMIZING PERCEIVED HEAVINESS AND MOTION FOR LIFTING OBJECTS WITH A POWER ASSIST ROBOT SYSTEM CONSIDERING CHANGE IN TIME CONSTANT

S. M. Mizanoor Rahman/ Ryojun Ikeura

Power assist robots are usually used for disabled and elderly people to augment their abilities and skills. This paper proposes to use these robots to handle heavy objects in industries, and thus brings a novelty in the applications of power assist robots. However, it is difficult to optimize perceived heaviness and motion either independently or simultaneously for lifting objects with power-assist. Hence, this paper investigates the techniques to optimize perceived heaviness and motion followin(..)

CONTINUOUS TIME IDENTIFICATION AND DECENTRALIZED PID CONTROLLER OF AN AEROTHERMIC PROCESS

M. Ramzi/ H. Youlal/ M. Haloua

The interactions between input/output in multivariable processes represent a major challenge in the design of decentralized controllers. In this paper, a simple method for the design of decentralized PID controller is proposed. It consists to combine the conventional PID controller with the static decoupler approach. For each single loop, the individual controller is independently designed by applying the internal model control (IMC) tuning rules. To demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed(..)

Norlela Ishak/ Mazidah Tajjudin/ Hashimah Ismail/ Michael Patrick/ Yahaya Md Sam/ Ramli Adnan

Hydraulic actuator has been widely used in industrial applications due to its fast response and capability of moving heavy load. The nonlinear properties of hydraulic cylinder had challenged researchers to design a suitable controller for position control, motion control and tracking control. Based on these problems, we had done a real-time digital tracking control studies on electro-hydraulic cylinder using trajectory zero phase error tracking control (ZPETC) without factorization of zeros poly(..)

A NEW KIND OF PSO: PREDATOR PARTICLE SWARM OPTIMIZATION

Mehdi Neshat/ Mehdi Sargolzaei/ Azra Masoumi/ Adel Najaran

Today, swarm intelligence is widely used in optimization problems. PSO is one the best swarm intelligence methods. In the method, each particle moves toward the direction in which the best individual and group experience has happened. The most important disadvantage of this method is that it falls in local optima. To fix the problem, a metaheuristic method is proposed in this paper. There has always been a competition between prey and predator in the nature. Little birds often fly in a colony fo(..)
