    A so-called industrial road within the city of Kagoshima had been frequented by traffic accidents due to speeding vehicles in the night-time. To prevent such accidents, the Kagoshima Prefectural Police HQ decided to adopt a new signal control setting scheme which makes it difficult for vehicles to travel by speeding. This paper introduces this new signal control setting scheme for speeding vehicle... View full abstract»

    In a multi-agent system, agents must have functions to work in cooperation with other agents. To produce the cooperative works, we propose soft DNA (soft computing oriented data driven functional scheduling architecture) to change dynamically an agent's control block based on the fuzzy associative memory organizing units system (FAMOUS) and a conceptual fuzzy set (CFS). Its function is to alot eac... View full abstract»

    We describe the development of a fuzzy navigator to perform the local navigation and obstacle avoidance tasks for an outdoor AGV. The hybrid architecture incorporates a high level `model-and-plan' layer, and a low-level `sense-and-execute' layer. The local navigation module is implemented using a behavioural approach. That is, each of the complex local navigational tasks that need to be carried ou... View full abstract»
