• ### Filter-Driven-Approximation-Based Control for a Class of Pure-Feedback Systems With Unknown Nonlinearities by State and Output Feedback

Publication Year: 2018, Page(s):161 - 176
| | PDF (1685 KB)

This paper presents a new approximation-based control approach for uncertain nonlinear pure-feedback systems. The main idea of this paper is to estimate unknown continuous nonlinear functions through a linear combination of first-order filtered signals of state variables and a control input in the nonadaptive control framework, instead of using conventional adaptive neural or fuzzy function approx...

• ### Modeling the Heterogeneous Duration of User Interest in Time-Dependent Recommendation: A Hidden Semi-Markov Approach

Publication Year: 2018, Page(s):177 - 194
| | PDF (2491 KB)

Recommender systems are widely used for suggesting books, education materials, and products to users by exploring their behaviors. In reality, users’ preferences often change over time, leading to studies on time-dependent recommender systems. However, most existing approaches that deal with time information remain primitive. In this paper, we extend existing methods and propose a hidden se... View full abstract»

• ### Accuracy Versus Simplicity in Online Battery Model Identification

Publication Year: 2018, Page(s):195 - 206
Cited by:  Papers (2)
| | PDF (2023 KB)

This paper presents a framework for battery modeling in online, real-time applications where accuracy is important but speed is the key. The framework allows users to select model structures with the smallest number of parameters that is consistent with the accuracy requirements of the target application. The tradeoff between accuracy and speed in a battery model identification process is explored... View full abstract»

• ### Queryable Semantics to Detect Cyber-Attacks: A Flow-Based Detection Approach

Publication Year: 2018, Page(s):207 - 223
Cited by:  Papers (1)
| | PDF (1991 KB)

Cyber-attacks continue to increase worldwide, leading to significant loss or misuse of information assets. Most of the existing intrusion detection systems rely on per-packet inspection, a resource consuming task in today’s high speed networks. A recent trend is to analyze netflows (or simply flows) instead of packets, a technique performed at a relative low level leading to high false alar... View full abstract»

• ### Ultrasonic-Frequency-Based Visualization of Columnar Soft Matter Beyond Wavelength Limitations

Publication Year: 2018, Page(s):224 - 231
| | PDF (2664 KB)

This paper first describes a relation between the frequency and the diameter of columnar soft matter by using broadband ultrasonic single-probe testing. We found an inverse relation between the diameter (100–300 $mu text{m}$ ) and frequency (1.0–6.0 MHz) of the ultrasonic reflection waveform from columnar soft ma... View full abstract»

• ### Discriminative and Robust Competitive Code for Palmprint Recognition

| | PDF (1988 KB)

Various palmprint recognition methods have been proposed based on orientation features of palmprints. Among them, the competitive code method using the dominant orientation of palmprint images achieves promising performance in palmprint recognition. In this paper, we propose a discriminative and robust competitive code based method, which uses a more accurate dominant orientation representation of... View full abstract»

• ### Efficient Solutions for Discreteness, Drift, and Disturbance (3D) in Electronic Olfaction

Publication Year: 2018, Page(s):242 - 254
| | PDF (1864 KB)

In this paper, we aim at presenting the new challenges of electronic noses (E-noses) and proposing effective methods for handling the new challenging scientific issues to be solved, such as signal discreteness (reproducibility), systematical drift and nontarget disturbances. We first review the progress of E-noses in applications, systems, and algorithms during the past two decades. Recall a numbe... View full abstract»

• ### Production System Performance Identification Using Sensor Data

Publication Year: 2018, Page(s):255 - 264
| | PDF (1037 KB)

Advanced manufacturing systems are characterized by their complex dynamics, which are subject to constant changes caused by technology insertion, engineering modification, as well as disruption events. To support daily operation, distributed sensors are utilized to monitor the status of each process. The advantages of the sensor data are not fully realized in current production system analysis due... View full abstract»

• ### The Effect of Marketing Effort on Dual-Channel Closed-Loop Supply Chain Systems

Publication Year: 2018, Page(s):265 - 276
| | PDF (989 KB)

This paper explores a dual-channel closed-loop supply chain (CLSC) system consisting of a manufacturer and a retailer. The manufacturer is the CLSC Stackelberg leader. We investigate the effect of exerting marketing effort on the optimal decisions and profits of supply chain members by considering several marketing effort supported models, namely the models when the manufacturer is the investor, t...

• ### Population-Based Incremental Learning Algorithm for a Serial Colored Traveling Salesman Problem

Publication Year: 2018, Page(s):277 - 288

| | PDF (2050 KB) | HTML Media

A colored traveling salesman problem (CTSP) is a generalization of the well-known multiple traveling salesman problem. This paper investigate a class of CTSP, called serial CTSP (S-CTSP). Each of its salesmen has his exclusive cities and shares some cities with its neighbor(s) in a serial manner. It can be used to model the scheduling problem of multimachine engineering systems with linearly arran... View full abstract»

• ### Optimal One-Wafer Cyclic Scheduling of Hybrid Multirobot Cluster Tools With Tree Topology

Publication Year: 2018, Page(s):289 - 298
| | PDF (1216 KB)

A hybrid multirobot cluster tool is composed of both single and dual-arm robotic cluster tools. Since the behavior of different individual tools is different, it is very challenging to coordinate their activities in such a tool and to schedule it optimally. To find a one-wafer cyclic schedule to reach the shortest cycle time for a treelike hybrid multirobot cluster tool whose bottleneck tool is pr... View full abstract»

• ### Lean Reachability Tree for Unbounded Petri Nets

Publication Year: 2018, Page(s):299 - 308
| | PDF (807 KB)

Elaborate efforts have been made to eliminate fake markings and refine ${omega }$ -markings in the existing modified or improved Karp–Miller trees for various classes of unbounded Petri nets since the late 1980s. The main issues fundamentally are incurred due to the generation manners of the trees that prematurely intro... View full abstract»

• ### A New Look at Boundedness of Error Covariance of Kalman Filtering

Publication Year: 2018, Page(s):309 - 314
| | PDF (408 KB) | HTML

In this correspondence paper, we provide a new look at the boundedness problems of error covariance of Kalman filtering. First, by utilizing the mathematical induction technique, a new bound function which is dependent on system parameters is proposed. In this manner, the boundedness problems of the error covariance can be converted to the study of the corresponding uniform bounds... View full abstract»
