    Data and models are needed to analyse the dynamic behaviour of any system. One of the main goals of mathematical modelling is optimization of some objective function subject to certain constraints. Nature has an optimality principle in biological systems. For example shapes of different cells or bones in the human body are optimal for the function they perform. Optimization models may provide bett... View full abstract»

    This paper describes about an application of genetic algorithms (GAs) to modeling of multiple object from CCD images. Shape modeling is a very important issue for shape recognition for robot vision, representing 3D shapes in the virtual world, and so on. Superquadrics are often used for shape modeling because they can represent various shapes by using a single equation. In this paper, we propose a... View full abstract»

  • Adaptive fuzzy controller under stability supervisor

    Publication Year: 1996, Page(s):3170 - 3173 vol.4
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (260 KB)

    This paper presents the analysis of stability conditions using the Lyapunov theorem in an adaptive fuzzy controller. The Lyapunov theorem is a very powerful theorem for the analysis of the stability of non-linear plants and can be adapted for fuzzy controllers (which are non-linear controllers). However, the lack of description means for fuzzy controllers leads designers of fuzzy controllers to us... View full abstract»

    A method for learning disjunctive rules using a combination of two existing neural network schemes is proposed. The hybrid network consists of two layers; the first is an unsupervised network while the second is a supervised network. The first layer is used for ordering the inputs of training instances into clusters. Initial rules are extracted from this layer using an existing technique called Un... View full abstract»

    This work aims at building 3D graphics models of objects using multiple visual cues. Different materials and shapes may yield different visual cues such as corner, pattern, highlight, and contour on objects. These cues may have similar appearance in the images, extracted as edge, peak and shading. To obtain a correct shape, different shape recovery methods must be applied to those features separat...

    Automated guided vehicles (AGVs) are a highly sophisticated and increasingly popular type of material handling device in flexible manufacturing systems (FMS). The research is based on the result of a previous study presented in Albert and Castagna (1996). There, the study consists of the description of a conflict management method. But managing the conflicts is not enough, it is necessary to reduc... View full abstract»

    An intelligent computer aided instruction (ICAI) system suitable for individual teaching should at least provide with the following functions: 1) judging student's understanding of the material being taught; 2) preparing different materials and choosing different teaching methods; and 3) correcting students' answers. So an efficient software support for individual teaching activities in ICAI requi... View full abstract»

    Image rotation is a basic operation in most digital image processing systems as well as a necessary component in some visual pattern recognition systems. The speed and/or accuracy of image rotation are significant in most cases. In this paper, a new one-pass method, called the midpoint line algorithm, for realizing high-speed high-accuracy rotation of images is proposed. The new method, based on a... View full abstract»

    The holographic modeling (HGM) integrates the topological graph representation of a system and the operational calculus over the domain of its measurements. In the HGM all variables and operators are holors. There is no distinction between operators and the structured variables they operate on. The basic atomic object is the scalar. Therefore, all operations are performed on scalars in terms of si... View full abstract»

    Maintenance and reuse of products often require the disassembly of particular components of the products. In other words, selective disassembly is necessary. This paper presents a method to find the disassembly sequence required to selectively disassemble an identified component of a virtual prototype. Use of the virtual prototype facilitates the disassembly analysis to be performed during the des... View full abstract»

    The present treatment of deep seated brain tumours is mainly performed by radiotherapy and by stereotactic procedures which offer a high precision to hit the lesion, but the success of the operation may be limited as these methods do not facilitate the resection of tumour or necrotic tissue. A new minimal invasive approach promises to overcome this restriction. It is based on a new picosecond lase... View full abstract»

    We consider queueing systems in which the service rate is the controlled variable. The cost depends on the queue length and selected rate. The objective is to choose the service rate dynamically, based on the state of the system so as to minimize the average cost over an infinite horizon. Four cases, either known in the literature or new, are studied in detail: single-server queueing systems with ... View full abstract»

    Medical engineering support systems that are controlled by neural networks are being applied with increasing frequency in medical practice. However, a solution still needs to be found for the problem of constructing medical support systems that can be set up by the physicians themselves without the need of a knowledge of the mathematical theories of neural networks and signal processing.
