  • Fault monitoring and diagnosis

    Publication Year: 1990, Page(s):57 - 62
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (618 KB)

    A technique for both monitoring and diagnosing a range of subtle faults in an arbitrary dynamic system is presented. With minor modification, the technique can be extended to encompass sensor fault diagnosis and is well suited to accommodation within a real-time Al management system. It is based on signal processing of signals from conventional sensors taking measurements from a dynamic system. Th... View full abstract»

  • Sensor-based control of AGVs

    Publication Year: 1990, Page(s):64 - 70

    Summarises work on a number of related sensor-guided mobile robot projects at Oxford University. Two fundamental problems are discussed: navigation and obstacle avoidance. Beacons are central to navigation. Implemented systems are described that make different assumptions about the environment and use different beacons. An implemented system is also described that can sense and avoid obstacles on ... View full abstract»

    Digital signal processing techniques and architectures have evolved rapidly in recent years. As a consequence, the range of potential applications has broadened extensively in both existing areas such as radar and sonar signal processing and in relatively new fields such as communications and industrial condition monitoring. The article reviews the development and principal application areas for d... View full abstract»

  • Flagship-a parallel reduction machine for declarative programming

    Publication Year: 1990, Page(s):81 - 86
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (626 KB)

    The Flagship project aimed to develop a scalable parallel machine for declarative programming. A packet reduction model of computation was developed to exploit the implicit parallelism found in declarative languages and a work distribution and scheduling scheme was devised to utilise the resources of the parallel machine efficiently. The article outlines the model of computation and the mechanisms... View full abstract»

  • Evaluation of YSM and VDM for time-critical systems

    Publication Year: 1990, Page(s):87 - 94
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (686 KB)

    The article describes how it would be possible to use the Yourdon structured method (YSM) and Vienna development method (VDM) together during the system development lifecycle, and the advantages of this approach. It outlines the basic principles of both methods, discussing the relative merits and disadvantages of each, and suggests why using them together may prove to be useful when building syste...

  • Developing an intelligent marine navigation system

    Publication Year: 1990, Page(s):95 - 103
    Cited by:  Papers (3)

    A rule-based system to provide decision support in avoiding collision at sea is described. The approach is founded on the processing of radar data through a system of rules representing knowledge of the collision-avoidance problem obtained from international regulations and experienced mariners. Current performance indicates potential for a significant contribution to maritime safety.<> View full abstract»
