  • Position control and explicit force control of a constrained manipulator

    Publication Year: 1997, Page(s):1268 - 1271 vol.2
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (384 KB)

    The kinematically constrained dynamic system of a robotic manipulator is modeled by including constrained forces in the dynamic equations in this paper, and the constrained forces are expressed as an obvious function of the state and inputs of the system. A controller without involving any force sensor is therefore constructed by taking the advantage of the redundancy between the input and constra... View full abstract»

    When using a neural network (NN) for automatic diagnosis, it is difficult to deal with the ambiguous diagnosis problems. The paper proposes the “partially-linearized neural network (PNN)” by which failure types can be quickly distinguished on the basis of the probability distributions of symptom parameters. The knowledge acquisition method for PNN learning using rough sets is also prop... View full abstract»

    Knowledge and inference are the two key features of an intelligent system. Insufficiency of structural representation and reusability are the major weakness of knowledge based systems. On the other hand, OO technology is very powerful in reusability and structural representation. Therefore, to co-operate knowledge based system techniques with object-oriented design strategies seems to be a good st... View full abstract»

    The paper presents an approach to genetic programming (GP). The objective of the study originates in the fact that a manually produced program tends to be divided into some subroutines and reuses the subroutines frequently. In traditional GP, the program is structured by one sequence. Moreover there is no room to reuse the subroutines in traditional GP. A few techniques have been proposed for divi...

    The author investigates the effect that a discriminating scheduler, which has a priori knowledge of the probable effect that each transaction would have on data contention, could have on throughput. The author finds that in those systems where both low contention and high contention transactions co-exist in significant proportions, a discriminating scheduler can increase throughput to near those l...
