    Wireless sensors have started being utilized for process monitoring in factory environments, which are typically harsh for low-power wireless communication due to their complicated layout and plentiful stationary/moving obstacles. Sensor radios available so far have been engineered for consumer-grade applications, featuring low cost, low power, and minimal radio complexity. In order to utilize suc... View full abstract»

    Wireless networks play an increasingly important role in application areas such as factory-floor automation, process control, and automotive electronics. In this paper, we address the problem of sharing a wireless channel among a set of sporadic message streams where a message stream issues transmission requests with real-time deadlines. For this problem, we propose a collision-free wireless mediu... View full abstract»

    The controller area network (CAN) protocol was originally introduced for automotive applications but is now also widely used in process control and many other industrial areas. In this paper, we present a low-cost redundancy-management scheme for replicated CAN channels that helps to ensure that clocks (and, hence, tasks) on the distributed nodes remain synchronized in the event of failures in the...

    Communications to, or between, low-end microprocessors within a product always comes at a cost. This paper develops a new, economic solution that will be useful in a variety of cost-sensitive applications. This paper starts by identifying the properties of an inter-microprocessor communications system that adds minimal cost to a product and enables the use of lower price microprocessors. This lead...

    This paper describes real-time gait planning for pushing motion of humanoid robots. This method deals with an object whose mass is not known. In order that a humanoid robot pushes an unknown object in both single support phase and double support phase, real-time gait planning for pushing the unknown object is proposed. Real-time gait planning consists of zero moment point (ZMP) modification and cy... View full abstract»

    Overhead cranes are common industrial structures that are used in many factories and harbors. They are usually operated manually or by some conventional control methods, such as the optimal and PLC-based methods. The theme of this paper is to provide an effective all-purpose adaptive fuzzy controller for the crane. This proposed method does not need the complex dynamic model of the crane system, b...
