    The history of the electrical units since 1948 is reviewed. The change from the conventional methods of expressing accuracy through the uncertainty methods is followed. Included are some of the attitudes and practices as instruments and standards have become more precise. The development of metrological uncertainty is reviewed. The effects of international recommendations and standards are present... View full abstract»

    This paper analyses the result of a measurement in the mathematical model of incomplete knowledge and shows how it can be treated in the framework of the theory of evidence. The RFVs are considered in order to express the result of a measurement together with its uncertainty and a significant application is considered to prove the practical utility of the proposed approach.

    The vast majority of sensors used in autonomous robotic systems are submitted to uncertainty sources that often generate contradictory data that must be interpreted in order to optimize the reliability of the information extracted from the models that are built from those measurements. When certainty occupancy maps are used to represent the workspace of a robot, the estimation of the uncertainty l... View full abstract»

    The great number of e-business Websites existing over internet makes the customers undecided on which one is the more appropriate for their buying. Thus recommendation Websites has appeared. They give an aggregation of the customer's evaluations critics on the e-business Websites according to different criteria. The problem is that these evaluations give only an average idea about the customer's o... View full abstract»

    An original approach for uncertainty evaluation in indirect measurements is presented here in after. The approach applies the unscented transform to the measurement model (i.e. the functional relationship between the output and input quantities) in order to estimate the output expectation along with the associated standard uncertainty. Thanks to some nice properties of the unscented transform, not... View full abstract»

    Measurement uncertainty is traditionally represented in the form of expanded uncertainty as is defined through the guide to the expression of uncertainty in measurement (GUM). The ISO GUM represents uncertainty through confidence intervals based on the variances and means derived from probability density functions (PDF). A new approach to the evaluation of measurement uncertainty based on the poly... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (198 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This paper present discusses a number of problems that occurs when implementing GUM to modern instruments. These are often automatic which makes it difficult to evaluate the uncertainty components in each measurement step, since it is difficult to control and analyses them. Many of these instruments try to quantify instrument specific parameters, parameters that are difficult to compare with other... View full abstract»

    The aim of this paper is the comparative estimation of the measurement uncertainty associated to tile results of complex measurements, such as the evaluation of the wavelet transform of signals affected by transient disturbances. The uncertainty estimation is performed by means of two different methods: the approach suggested by the IEC-ISO "Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty in Measurement "a... View full abstract»

  • A two-stage Monte Carlo approach to the expression of uncertainty with finite sample sizes

    Proposed supplement I to the GUM outlines a "propagation of distributions" approach to deriving the distribution of a measurand for any non-linear function and for any set of random inputs. The supplement's proposed Monte Carlo approach assumes that the distributions of the random inputs are known exactly. This implies that the sample sizes are effectively infinite. In this case, the mean of the m... View full abstract»

    The type-B evaluation of the uncertainty affecting the measurement provided by any instrument could be done by properly processing the nominal accuracy specifications of each functional block in the instrument. In DSP-based measurements, the implementation of such a procedure must face the difficulty arising from the fact that the parameters characterizing the accuracy of the input analog block ar...

    This paper deals with the problem of convening the specifications of devices used in measurement systems based on digital signal processing into data that can be represented as probability density functions of the input quantities (samples) in a Monte Carlo procedure for uncertainty estimation. The attention is focused on data acquisition systems and input transducers. Author's proposals for facin... View full abstract»

    A method is described for designing modular instrumentation systems and software frameworks that inherently propagate measurement uncertainty according to current international best-practice. The method uses a mathematical procedure that is equivalent to the 'Law of Propagation of Uncertainty' presented in the "Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty in Measurement [International Organization for S...
