This paper presents a novel association rule mining (ARM)-based dissolved gas analysis (DGA) approach to fault diagnosis (FD) of power transformers. In the development of the ARM-based DGA approach, an attribute selection method and a continuous datum attribute discretization method are used for choosing user-interested ARM attributes from a DGA data set, i.e. the items that are employed to extrac...

An Objective Function to Evaluate Performance of Human–Robot Collaboration in Target Recognition TasksPublication Year: 2009, Page(s):611 - 620
Cited by: Papers (10)
Robotic systems in unstructured environments must cope with unknown, unpredictable, and dynamic situations. Inherent uncertainty, and limited sensor accuracy and reliability impede target recognition performance. Introducing a human operator into the system can help improve performance and simplify the robotic system. In this paper, four basic levels of collaboration were defined for human-robot c...

During manned bomb disposal missions, the combination of the protective suit's weight (37 kg), physical activity, high ambient temperatures, and restricted airflow can cause the operative's temperature to rise to dangerous levels during missions, impairing their physical and mental ability. This work proposes to use body sensor networks (BSNs) to increase the safety of operatives in such missions ... View full abstract»

With the wide spread of Web services, there is a growing interest in semantic Web services based on ontologies, which support the automated discovery, selection, and composition of Web services. OWL-S is a de facto standard ontology for describing the semantics of Web services. Due to the complexity of the OWL-S grammar, it is difficult to construct OWL-S descriptions manually. This paper p... View full abstract»

Software effort prediction clearly plays a crucial role in software project management. In keeping with more dynamic approaches to software development, it is not sufficient to only predict the whole-project effort at an early stage. Rather, the project manager must also dynamically predict the effort of different stages or activities during the software development process. This can assist the pr... View full abstract»
An Intelligent Testing System Embedded With an Ant-Colony-Optimization-Based Test Composition MethodPublication Year: 2009, Page(s):659 - 669
Cited by: Papers (17)
Computer-assisted testing systems are promising in generating tests efficiently and effectively for evaluating a person's skill. This paper develops a novel intelligent testing system for both teachers and students. Based on the browser/server structure, the proposed testing system comprises a question bank and five modules, offering the features of self-adaptation, reliability, and flexibility fo...

Most complex aerospace systems have many text reports on safety, maintenance, and associated issues. The Aviation Safety Reporting System (ASRS) spans several decades and contains over 700 000 reports. The Aviation Safety Action Plan (ASAP) contains over 12 000 reports from various airlines. Problem categorizations have been developed for both ASRS and ASAP to enable identification of system probl... View full abstract»
