Developmental robotics is also known as epigenetic robotics. We propose in this paper that there is one substantial difference between developmental robotics and epigenetic robotics, since epigenetic robotics concentrates primarily on modeling the development of cognitive elements of living systems in robotic systems, such as language, emotion, and social skills, while developmental robotics shoul...

Intelligent adaptive interfaces (IAIs) are emerging technologies that promise opportunities for enhancing performance in complex sociotechnical environments, such as multiple uninhabited aerial vehicle (UAV) control. However, a lack of established design guidelines for such advanced interfaces makes many designs costly and ineffective. In this paper, a generic conceptual framework for developing I...

Elderly in-home assistance (EHA) has traditionally been tackled by human caregivers to equip the elderly with homecare assistance in their daily living. The emerging ambience intelligence (AmI) technology suggests itself to be of great potential for EHA applications, owing to its effectiveness in building a context-aware environment that is sensitive and responsive to the presence of humans. This ... View full abstract»

Time series clustering provides underpinning techniques for discovering the intrinsic structure and condensing/summarizing information conveyed in time series, which is demanded in various fields ranging from bioinformatics to video content understanding. In this paper, we present an unsupervised ensemble learning approach to time series clustering by combining rival-penalized competitive learning... View full abstract»

Based on concepts of ecology modeling and specifically on population biology, a methodology for describing a high-technology market's dynamics is developed and presented. The importance of the aforementioned methodology is its capability to estimate and forecast the degree of competition, market equilibrium, and market concentration, the latter expressed by corresponding market shares, in the high...

In this paper, we present a low-cost wireless sensor network platform, called wireless ad hoc system for positioning (WASP), that has been developed for high-accuracy localization and tracking. This platform uses the time of arrival (TOA) of beacon signals periodically transmitted by the nodes at known times for localization. The system was designed to have a unique tradeoff between hardware compl... View full abstract»

Current spacecraft health monitoring and fault-diagnosis practices involve around-the-clock limit-checking and trend analysis on large amount of telemetry data. They do not scale well for future multiplatform space missions due the size of the telemetry data and an increasing need to make the long-duration missions cost-effective by limiting the operations team personnel. The need for efficient ut... View full abstract»

This paper presents two approaches for multiobjective simultaneous coordinated tuning of damping controllers, a modified artificial immune network (MAINet) algorithm and a multiobjective immune algorithm (MOIA). The weighted-sum approach is used to handle the multiobjective optimization problem in the MAINet, while the Pareto-optimization approach is used in the MOIA. To investigate the ability of...

There is growing interest in the ways in which the location of a person can be utilized by new applications and services. Recent advances in mobile technologies have meant that the technical capability to record and transmit location data for processing is appearing in off-the-shelf handsets. This opens possibilities to profile people based on the places they visit, people they associate with, or ... View full abstract»

Wireless-sensor networks (WSNs) are networks of autonomous nodes used for monitoring an environment. Developers of WSNs face challenges that arise from communication link failures, memory and computational constraints, and limited energy. Many issues in WSNs are formulated as multidimensional optimization problems, and approached through bioinspired techniques. Particle swarm optimization (PSO) is... View full abstract»

The introduction of radio-frequency identification (RFID) tags in supply chains engenders the need for incorporating and utilizing the additional generated data. It is generally assumed that these data, once generated, are complete and rife with necessary information for making decisions. The reality is, however, that these data are not error free. Common errors observed in these data include fals... View full abstract»

2-D palmprint has been recognized as an effective biometric identifier in the past decade. Recently, 3-D palmprint recognition was proposed to further improve the performance of palmprint systems. This paper presents a simple yet efficient scheme for 3-D palmprint recognition. After calculating and enhancing the mean-curvature image of the 3-D palmprint data, we extract both line and orientation f... View full abstract»
