    This paper deals with the reliability test of electromechanical contact to robot controlling. Since the reliability of the electromechanical products cannot be calculated with the reliability functions relating to series of systems, under the nominal testing conditions, certain accelerated testing methods are useful. The paper presents a prediction method for defining the reliability. This predict... View full abstract»

  • Reducing motion inaccuracies due to actuation-system quantisation-errors on a Khepera mobile robot

    Publication Year: 1997, Page(s):339 - 344
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (572 KB)

    We present two algorithms, that can be used for minimising the effects of mobile robot control-space quantisation errors. The first algorithm can be used to perform pure rotations (no translation) of the mobile robot while minimising the effects of these errors. The second algorithm can be used to perform straight-line motions, between the mobile robot current position, and a predefined goal posit... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (456 KB)

    This paper presents the application of fuzzy clustering to reduce the large system states into few representative clusters, which are sufficient for reliability analysis of recent distribution networks containing local photovoltaic generation. For each cluster the failure effect analysis and minimal cut-set techniques, based on outage simulation of system components, are applied to compute the dif... View full abstract»

    We have proposed the stochastic qualitative simulation which can derive approximate behavior from a simple qualitative model of a target. In this method, the model must be constructed with numerous stochastic parameters. The parameter tuning process is the most difficult element of model construction. This paper outlines an automatic parameter turning by means of the steepest ascent based method. ... View full abstract»

  • Energetically optimal cruising motion of robots

    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (356 KB)

    A robot motion is cruising when one of the velocities (joint or Cartesian) is at its limit value. When the path of the motion is given (CPC problem) it can be proved that time-optimal motion is realized when at least one of the joint velocities is at its maximum value. Which joint's velocity should be at maximum depends on the position in working space, and the maximum velocity values of joints, a... View full abstract»

    Complex, distributed systems play central role in practical applications. Such systems are composed of rather heterogeneous parts, which should be handled in a uniform manner. In previous papers the authors have proposed a simple but general modelling ontology with great expressive power to provide this uniformity through the concepts of services, requirements and diagnostic centers. The present p... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (292 KB)

    Identification of nonlinear characteristic using fuzzy approach is considered. A fuzzy model is represented as a number of rules. The condition part of the rule is determined by a fuzzy partition of the input space, and the action part of the rule is a regression model where the regression coefficients have to be identified. The method is applied to identification of nonlinear characteristic of a ... View full abstract»

    In the paper we compare the influence of unweighted and inertia weighted pseudoinverse on controlling null space velocity of kinematically redundant manipulators. We show that with appropriate null space velocity controller we can decouple the system on acceleration level using both unweighted and inertia weighted pseudoinverse, while on force level inertia weighted pseudoinverse is the only one t...

    Cited by:  Papers (8)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (404 KB)

    In many practical applications of fuzzy logic controllers, fuzzy sets are used to describe a vague value, a value and a kind of density information on the antecedent and consequent universes of the fuzzy rule base. In this case the antecedent and consequent fuzzy partitions (formed by these primary fuzzy sets) can be described by vague environments. Using the concept of vague environment character...

    Currently, there are many available software packages for forecasting in manufacturing firms. Some packages are fairly simple and easy to use but they do not cover the full range of forecasting methods. Some packages are more advanced with a large capacity for graphics and graphical interface designed especially for commercial environments.

    The determination of the current absolute position provides the basis for any path planning and navigation purposes of mobile robots. Here, a navigation system is proposed which uses floor tiles that contain different deterministic or random patterns with encoded information for the determination of the robot's absolute position. This navigation code has powerful error control capabilities. Both t... View full abstract»
