    Criteria for selecting from alternative measures of plant information have been derived by information theory and the expected-value model of decision theory. Two criteria derived by information theory are minimum " uncertainty" of judgment of plant states, and maximum "surprise" of human operators. Two criteria derived by decision theory are maximum expected reward to operators, and maximum ratio... View full abstract»

    Although the off-road mobility characteristics of wheeled or tracked vehicles are generally recognized as being inferior to those of man and cursorial animals, the complexity of the joint-coordination control problem has thus far frustrated attempts to achieve improved vehicular terrain adaptability through the application of legged locomotion concepts. Nevertheless, the evident superiority of bio... View full abstract»

    A statistical algorithm is developed to study human tracking behavior in a precognitive tracking task. The algorithm presented here determines the point in time when a tracking task becomes too difficult for the human to follow. Consequently, different behavior responses are observed to occur. A decision rule based on a statistical test of normality is used to delineate the two regions of tracking... View full abstract»

    Convenient recursive prediction error algorithms for identification and adaptive state estimation are proposed, and the convergence of these algorithms to achieve off-line prediction error minimization solutions is studied. To set the recursive prediction error algorithms in another perspective, specializations are derived from significant simplifications to a class of extended Kalman filters. The...

    Eight Artificial Intelligence programming languages (SAIL, LISP, MICROPLANNER, CONNIVER, MLISP, POP-2, AL, and QLISP) are presented and surveyed, with examples of their use in an automated shop environment. Control structures are compared, and distinctive features of each language are highlighted. A simple programming task is used to illustrate programs in SAIL, LISP, MICROPLANNER, and CONNIVER. T...

  • Waish-Hadamard Power Spectra Invariant to Certain Transform Groups

    Publication Year: 1979, Page(s):227 - 237
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2097 KB)

    Changes in Walsh-Hadamard power spectrum of an input pattern are investigated under several transformations: 1) shifting the elements of the input pattern cyclically, 2) enlarging and reducing the input pattern, 3) rotating the input pattern by multiples of 90°, and so on. Then the Walsh-Hadamard power spectrum is developed to be unchangeable by all the transformations through an introduced compo... View full abstract»
