    The rank transform is a nonparametric technique which has been recently proposed for the stereo matching problem. The motivation behind its application to this problem is its invariance to certain types of image distortion and noise, as well as its amenability to real-time implementation. This paper derives one constraint which must be satisfied for a correct match. This has been termed the rank c... View full abstract»

    Program evaluation and review techniques (PERT) is an efficient tool for large project management. In actual project control decisions, PERT has successfully been applied to business management, industry production, project scheduling control, logistics support, etc. However, classical PERT requires a crisp duration time representation for each activity. This requirement is often difficult for the... View full abstract»

  • Some novel classifiers designed using prototypes extracted by a new scheme based on self-organizing feature map

    We propose two new comprehensive schemes for designing prototype-based classifiers. The scheme addresses all major issues (number of prototypes, generation of prototypes, and utilization of the prototypes) involved in the design of a prototype-based classifier. First we use Kohonen's self-organizing feature map (SOFM) algorithm to produce a minimum number (equal to the number of classes) of initia... View full abstract»

  • Design of an enhanced hybrid fuzzy P+ID controller for a mechanical manipulator

    We propose in this paper an enhanced fuzzy P+ID controller to improve control performance in both dynamic transient and steady-state periods for mechanical manipulators under uncertainty. The fuzzy P+ID controller adds only two additional parameters to be tuned relative to the original PID controller. One of these parameters is mainly used to reduce a steady-state error. The other is used to speed... View full abstract»

  • The fuzzy crystallization algorithm: a new approach to complex systems modeling

    A new identification method for fuzzy modeling is introduced. Since the method has some analogy with the process of material crystallization in nature, the name of fuzzy crystallization algorithm (FCA) is given to this novel approach. This method accomplishes structure identification and parameter identification at the same time, and possesses the properties of simplicity, flexibility, and high ca... View full abstract»

  • Emergent behaviors of a fuzzy sensory-motor controller evolved by genetic algorithm

    Recently, there has been extensive work on the construction of fuzzy controllers for mobile robots by a genetic algorithm (GA); therefore, we can realize evolutionary optimization as a promising method for developing fuzzy controllers. However, much investigation on the evolutionary fuzzy controller remains because most of the previous works have not seriously attempted to analyze the fuzzy contro... View full abstract»

    This paper introduces evolving fuzzy neural networks (EFuNNs) as a means for the implementation of the evolving connectionist systems (ECOS) paradigm that is aimed at building online, adaptive intelligent systems that have both their structure and functionality evolving in time. EFuNNs evolve their structure and parameter values through incremental, hybrid supervised/unsupervised, online learning.... View full abstract»

  • Switching control of an R/C hovercraft: stabilization and smooth switching

    This paper presents stable switching control of an radio-controlled (R/C) hovercraft that is a nonholonomic (nonlinear) system. To exactly represent its nonlinear dynamics, more importantly, to maintain controllability of the system, we newly propose a switching fuzzy model that has locally Takagi-Sugeno (T-S) fuzzy models and switches them according to states, external variables, and/or time.

    Because the radio spectrum is limited, managing the limited amount of resources is an important issue, especially for high-speed data applications. This paper presents a distributed multiagent scheme (DMAS) that was developed for supporting resource allocation in a customer-accepted and cost-effective fashion. The scheme consists of a collection of problem-solving agents with three modules built i... View full abstract»
