  • A geometric method for calibration of the image center

    Publication Year: 2011 , Page(s): 6 - 10

    A geometric approach is proposed to calibrate the image center (also called principle point) of a camera, which is independent of other intrinsic parameters such as the focal length, distortion coefficients, and so on. The basic idea arises from intuitive experience that when the camera moves backward, the path of a static feature point will evolute as a straight line toward the principle point in...

    This paper considers precision positioning of a stage. To compensate uncertainties of the stage, feedback error learning (FEL) is employed. In FEL algorithm, parameters of feedback error learning are updated by using an output of a feedback controller. After learning, the feedforward controller with an inverse system of a plant is obtained. To shorten learning time, implementation methods of FEL a... View full abstract»

    Foreign fibers accounted for a small proportion in cotton, but there is serious impact on the quality of textile. Foreign fibers are removed by hand, which is low efficiency. To meet the requirements of accuracy and real-time, the identification of foreign fibers base on machine vision is proposed. The traditional algorithm of identification is generally complex and large amount of calculation, so... View full abstract»

    In steel works, steel production from raw material to final product includes several processes. In the processes, pit iron from blast furnace is transported from furnace to storing yards going through factories. For the transportation, because of weight and high temperature of pit iron, torpedo cars towed by a locomotive on a railway in the compounds are used. For effective production, optimal sch...

    Without considering the echo signal power changes caused by target distance changes during the accumulated time the traditional radar equation is hardly applied. We take account of the effects of velocity, signal-to-noise ratio during the processing time; a modified radar equation is built which can be used for long-time integration of weak targets with high speed. After analyzing the relation bet... View full abstract»

    In this paper, the robust exponential stability analysis is considered for a class of switched stochastic Hopfield neural systems with parameter uncertainties and stochastic perturbations. The parameter uncertainties are assumed to be norm bounded. Firstly, based on Lyapunov-Krasovskii functional and linear matrix inequality (LMI) tools, by employing multiple Lyapunov function techniques, a delay-... View full abstract»

    In this paper, a heuristic method based on Genetic Algorithms (GA) is proposed to improve the performance of Fuzzy Logic Controllers (FLCs) designed for Takagi-Sugeno (T-S) model of nonlinear plants by Parallel Distributed Compensation (PDC) technique. Generally, T-S models might not represent the dynamics of nonlinear plants accurately. Due to this mismatch, sometimes the response of the controll... View full abstract»

    Unstable zeros limit the achievable control performance. When a continuous-time system with relative degree greater than or equal to three is discretized using a zero-order hold, at least one of the zeros of the resulting sampled-data model is unstable for small sampling periods. Thus, attention is here focused on continuous-time systems with relative degree equal to two. This paper analyzes the z... View full abstract»
