    In this paper, we propose a data-driven method to detect anomalies in operating Parameter Identifiers (PIDs) and in the absence of any anomaly, classify faults in automotive systems by analyzing PIDs collected from the freeze frame data. We first categorize the operating parameter data using automotive domain knowledge. The dataset thus obtained is then analyzed using Principal Component Analysis ... View full abstract»

    This work develops a novel virtual production control system (VPCS), which is allocated on a manufacturer side to adjust production pace of a supplier using a short-term demand plan for reducing inventory level. In addition to remotely monitoring production progress of a supplier, the proposed VPCS allows manufacturers to pre-schedule the latest outputs using an integer programming model, to simul...

  • Anti-windup controller design using gravity compensation for Euler-Lagrange systems with actuator saturation

    Publication Year: 2010, Page(s):798 - 803
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (594 KB) | HTML iconHTML Multimedia Media

    A static anti-integrator-windup controller design method that employs gravity compensation is proposed for Euler-Lagrange systems with actuator saturation. A condition caused by gravity compensation is introduced so that asymptotic stability of the equilibrium state is achieved for proportional and integral set positioning control based on passivity and Lyapunov theory. The semi-optimality of the ... View full abstract»

  • A practical approach to the design of maximally permissive liveness-enforcing supervisors for complex resource allocation systems

    The problem of designing and deploying liveness-enforcing supervisors (LES) for sequential resource allocation systems is well-documented and extensively researched in the current literature. Acknowledging the fact that the computation of the maximally permissive LES is an NP-hard problem, most of the present solutions tend to trade off maximal permissiveness for computational tractability and eas...

    In this paper, the hysteresis modeling and compensation are carried out and verified for a piezo-driven XY parallel micropositioning stage aiming at a sub-micron precise motion tracking control. Specifically, inverse modified Prandtl-Ishlinskii (MPI) model-based feedforward in combination with a proportional-integral-derivative (PID) feedback control algorithm is implemented for the real-time cont...

    This paper describes an efficient data structure called the Bucket-Heap (BH) for accelerating the widely employed Dijkstra's shortest path algorithm in hardware. We adopt an architecture model consisting of a computational core and memory unit that maintains the network topology. It has been shown that the proposed data structure leads notable reduction in the memory I/O accesses required to perfo... View full abstract»

    The use of composite components in aerospace industries has become more and more important since the 1980s. Especially structures made of carbon fiber-reinforced plastic are well suited for aircrafts where highly stressable but lightweight constructions are required. However, the efficient use of this technology is still limited by a largely manual production process. To increase automation, the p... View full abstract»

  • Hybrid impedance control of a 3-DOF robotic arm used for rehabilitation treatment

    A 3-DOF planar robotic arm is designed and used as a rehabilitation treatment tool for the survivor after suffering a stroke, aiming to assist them to recover upper-limb function. In order to strengthen the patient's arm, some forces are desired to be followed while the position trajectories should be tracked simultaneously, therefore hybrid impedance control (HIC) is proposed. Due to the redundan... View full abstract»

    This paper uses voice response analysis of human subjects for assessing their level of fatigue. The results are simultaneously validated through Electroencephalography (EEG) based measurements. We have designed a 36-hour long experiment where the subjects are asked to repeat a particular sentence at different stages. The response is analyzed for computing various parameters such as voiced duration... View full abstract»

    In many service applications, mobile robots need to share their work areas with obstacles. Avoiding collisions is a fundamental requirement for these robots. In this paper a novel collision avoidance system is developed for avoiding unpredictable dynamic obstacles, including humans. The collision avoidance algorithm is based on the virtual force field (VFF) concept. The velocities of the obstacles... View full abstract»

    This work describes the design and experimental evaluation of a system for the non-contact testing of MEMS transducers on wafer level. The measurement principle is based on the optical detection of vibrating MEMS structures at their specific natural frequency. The working principle is demonstrated by testing a wafer with microfabricated microgrippers. Defective microgrippers are automatically iden... View full abstract»
