    Visual servoing is, roughly speaking, eye-hand coordination in a robot. This paper describes a fast, accurate visual servoing algorithm that uses fewer position parameters than conventional visual servoing. It does this through techniques of active vision. Although efficient and robust, in its simplest manifestation the original algorithm causes the robot arm to wobble over much of its trajectory ... View full abstract»

    Monte Carlo method is well known for solving static problems such as Laplace's or Poisson's equation. In this paper, we extend the applicability of the conventional Monte Carlo method to solve time-dependent (heat) problems. We present results in 1-D and 2-D that agree with the exact solutions View full abstract»

  • A Comparison of Models for Shadowing Functions for Random Rough Surfaces

    Publication Year: 2006, Page(s):11 - 15

    The paper compares three analytical models of the shadowing function for random rough surfaces. The comparison is based on a simulation model. When the terrain is more correlated over broader regions, all the shadow functions tend to coincide, but for rougher surfaces, we find that Smith's function is in closer agreement with the simulation model while Wagner's function is the least accurate View full abstract»

    A comparative study of shrinking span membership function (SSMF) fuzzy logic controller (FLC) relative to conventional FLCs has been presented in this work. The fuzzy logic controller provides a means of converting a linguistic control strategy based on expert knowledge into an automatic control strategy. The SSMFs have different spans for various term set elements in the universe of discourse. Th... View full abstract»

    This correspondence considers the problem of reduced vibrational motion of a transport system that consists of a suspended object transported by an overhead crane. The transport system contains uncertain parameters. A linear control law is developed that forces the states of the transport system to follow the states of a reference model that represents the ideal response of the controlled system. ...

    We have demonstrated that a radio-telescope antenna used by Astronomers can be accessed and controlled remotely via the Internet. Two powerful dc motors, both azimuth and elevation drives of the telescope have been used for accurate positioning of the antenna. LabVIEW software together with some National Instrument's (NI) hardware such as signal accessory board and data acquisition board has been ... View full abstract»

    A transformer that is properly specified, manufactured, tested, and installed should require minimal maintenance throughout its lifetime. The object of any maintenance program should be to prevent unplanned outages and/or to extend the life of the transformer. The most important factor in extending the life of power transformers is maintaining the integrity of the oil/insulation system. The differ... View full abstract»

    In the continued study of traditional and non-traditional types of lightning protection devices, an approach is developed to analyze the emission current due to space charge development at switching impulse voltage. Components of the SPICE model, the generator, dissipater, and air gap, allow for simulation of the emission current. The SPICE models, simulation results, and comparison of simulated e...

    A supervision control and data acquisition (SCADA) system is a communication and control system used for monitoring, operation and maintenance of energy infrastructure grids. Compared with traditional applications, a SCADA system has a harsh deadline for critical tasks. There is special time constraint for the real time database used in a SCADA system. The real time database in SCADA extends tradi... View full abstract»

    White noise is a major noise that influences accuracy of partial discharge (PD) measurements. De-noising with wavelet shrinkage method is efficient for rejection of white noise. Thresholds of wavelet coefficients are key factors in close relation to the distortion and error of a de-noised PD signal. In this paper, a new thresholding function is introduced for estimating the optimal wavelet thresho... View full abstract»
