    Recently, the utility of sample entropy (SampEn) as a complexity measure was shown via applying to time series data generated from in a variety of systems. However, online estimation method of SampEn index has not been developed yet. If SampEn can be estimated online, we can apply this index to time-varying system. In this paper, we developed the recursive SampEn algorithm to estimate the changes ... View full abstract»

    We propose a novel method of generating a 3D virtual foot model with use of a measuring technique based on multiple camera image data. Our method costs very low and a 3D virtual foot model for each person can be generated easily and rapidly with acceptable error range. We have to estimate the cause of errors that can occur in the whole process and endeavor to lower the errors. The errors are mainl... View full abstract»

    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (918 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The signal-to-noise (S/N) ratio is lower and the impulse signal of bearing is difficult to extract when the bearing is operating under heavy environmental conditions. For this reason, a new method is proposed for improving the signal to noise ratio from measurements of bearing vibration by the hybrid digital filter (HDF). Experimental result has shown that these techniques can be made more effecti... View full abstract»

    A computationally efficient and programmable dc-notch FIR filter design using a modified alpha - scaled sampling kernel and an analytic procedure is proposed. Design examples demonstrate that the proposed approach provides an efficient solution for designing a sharp dc-notch FIR filter, and satisfies the required filter specification. View full abstract»

    The National Metrology Institute of Japan, AIST establishes the mass standards from 1 mg to 5000 kg, referring to the Japanese prototype kilogram, and these standards are disseminated to the weight-calibration laboratories. In this service, calibration of standard weights in the mass range of 1 mg to 500 mg has been performed by using a sub-multiple calibration method. The mass comparisons of stan...

    Since low capacity or stainless steel load cells are subject to larger creep errors than medium or high capacity aluminum load cells, the conventional analog compensation method cannot fully cancel out the errors. In particular, the rate of change with creep is high immediately after load application or removal. While OIML R 60 has no stipulation regarding changes in creep immediately after load a...

    With increased automation in the manufacturing industry, the demand for a quick and accurate mass measurement system is growing. Currently, an active belt conveyer is in demand by many enterprises. However, there is a problem that the active the active belt conveyer causes mechanical noises. The main noises are three kinds, which are the natural oscillation of measurement conveyer, oscillation by ... View full abstract»

    Renovation work has been carried out to separate the 3 kN/500 N dead-weight type force standard machine (DWM) at the National Metrology Institute of Japan. Two loading frames and a common structural frame were newly manufactured. No significant changes were observed in the calibration results of several force transducers before and after the renovation; in some cases, there has even been improveme... View full abstract»

    As electronic industries grow more and more, there are many applications with motors. In a car system, there are also many parts adopting motors. These motor systems can be controlled with their frequency information obtained from motor currents, hall sensor output, tachometer and etc. In this paper, we use a WRLS (weighted robust least square) estimator to estimate motor frequency with the signal...

    In this paper, we derive equations of the steady state errors of a 3 dimensional linear tracking filter using a constant n-th derivative of a position model. Here, we assume that a constant (n+1)-th derivative of a position vector input signals affected by measurement noises are received from a sensor. View full abstract»

  • Some extensions of the monotonic signal estimation method

    Publication Year: 2007, Page(s):56 - 59
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (555 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    An estimation method of monotonic signals was proposed lately. This method is quite effective when a priori knowledge of monotonicity of the estimated signals can be used. However, the estimation method was presented only for the case where an estimated signal is scalar and the measured signal is supposed to be generated by an FIR model. This paper extends the estimation method to the cases of mul... View full abstract»

    This paper presents an error-state extended Kalman filter with data fusion for orientation estimation. The rotation parameterization is described by quaternion representation. A MARG (magnetic, angular rate, gravity) sensor is used for measurement system. The nonlinear process model consists of 6 error-states and is independent of the rigid body dynamics. The nonlinear measurement model is obtaine... View full abstract»

    This paper presents off-line character recognition that is applied to billet identification system in steel-making industry. The identification characters are so corrupted in this application that we need noise-proof and robust character segmentation and extraction algorithms. We propose a new local adaptive thresholding and character extraction methods. For classification of characters we use sub... View full abstract»

    The harmonic pollutions in the electrical networks became one of the major factors affecting the power quality of the network. APF's represent the most convenient system used to eliminate harmonics. To achieve instantaneous harmonic compensation, the harmonic current reference should be extracted very fast. In this paper, the average technique is used to extract the harmonics current contents for ... View full abstract»
