    The design and implementation of a computer-aided die design system (CADDS) for sheet-metal blanks is described. The system is designed by considering several factors, such as the complexity of blank geometry, reduction in scrap material, production requirements, availability of press equipment and standard parts, punch profile complexity, and tool elements manufacturing method. The interaction am... View full abstract»

    It is argued that the development of artificial intelligence techniques is bringing about fundamental changes in the way we represent and reason about the physical world. From a control engineering perspective, such methods offer a significant extension of the available method for systems modelling, and hence open up exciting prospects for the diversification of control methods to other applicatio...

    The wide range of applications involving automatically guided vehicles presents many problems for the guidance and control of such vehicles. The difficulties encountered in preparing an intelligent autonomous vehicle to travel across often unknown and frequently hazardous environments require the co-ordination of many sensors. Not only have the vehicles to steer, in the right direction, and avoid ... View full abstract»

    The advent of three-dimensional computer graphics has allowed the use of the computer as a computer-aided engineering tool to analyse the design of mechanical components. In the case study, a stop mount, which is a component used in the tape drive, is analysed because of its frequent breakage during assembly. Following the modelling, meshing and analysis of the original design of the stop mount, t... View full abstract»
