    The concept of cloud control systems is discussed in this paper, which is an extension of networked control systems (NCSs). With the development of internet of things (IOT), the technology of NCSs has played a key role in IOT. At the same time, cloud computing is developed rapidly, which provides a perfect platform for big data processing, controller design and performance assessment. The research... View full abstract»

    In this paper, permanent magnet synchronous motors (PMSMs) are investigated. According to the feature of PMSMs, a novel state equation of PMSMs is obtained by choosing suitable state variables. Based on the state equation, robust controllers are designed via interval matrix and PI control idea. In terms of bilinear matrix inequations, sufficient conditions for the existence of the robust controlle... View full abstract»

    This paper studies the consensus problem for discrete-time multi-agent systems of first-order in the presence of constant communication delay. Provided that the agent dynamics is unstable and the network topology is undirected, effects of two kinds of communication delays on consensus are investigated. When the relative information is affected by delay, we show that the effect of delay can be alle... View full abstract»

  • Single image fog removal based on local extrema

    Publication Year: 2015, Page(s):158 - 165
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (12015 KB)

    Atmospheric conditions induced by suspended particles, such as fog and haze, severely alter the scene appearance. In this paper, we propose a novel defogging method based on the local extrema, aiming at improving the image visibility under foggy or hazy weather condition. The proposed method utilizes atmospheric scattering model to realize the fog removal. It applies the local extrema method to fi... View full abstract»

  • Operation efficiency optimisation modelling and application of model predictive control

    Publication Year: 2015, Page(s):166 - 172
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (863 KB)

    The efficiency of any energy system can be characterised by the relevant efficiency components in terms of performance, operation, equipment and technology (POET). The overall energy efficiency of the system can be optimised by studying the POET energy efficiency components. For an existing energy system, the improvement of operation efficiency will usually be a quick win for energy efficiency. Th... View full abstract»

  • UAV online path planning algorithm in a low altitude dangerous environment

    Publication Year: 2015, Page(s):173 - 185
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (5288 KB)

    UAV online path-planning in a low altitude dangerous environment with dense obstacles, static threats (STs) and dynamic threats (DTs), is a complicated, dynamic, uncertain and real-time problem. We propose a novel method to solve the problem to get a feasible and safe path. Firstly STs are modeled based on intuitionistic fuzzy set (IFS) to express the uncertainties in STs. The methods for ST asses... View full abstract»

    This paper addresses issues related to nonlinear robust output feedback controller design for a nonlinear model of airbreathing hypersonic vehicle. The control objective is to realize robust tracking of velocity and altitude in the presence of immeasurable states, uncertainties and varying flight conditions. A novel reduced order fuzzy observer is proposed to estimate the immeasurable states. Base... View full abstract»

  • Stable estimation of horizontal velocity for planetary lander with motion constraints

    Publication Year: 2015, Page(s):198 - 206
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2842 KB)

    The planetary lander usually selects image feature points and tracks them from frame to frame in order to determine its own position and velocity during landing. Aiming to keep features tracking in consecutive frames, this paper proposes an approach of calculating the field of view (FOV) overlapping area in a 2D plane. Then the rotational and translational motion constraints of the lander can be f... View full abstract»

  • Asynchronous H control for unmanned aerial vehicles: switched polytopic system approach

    Publication Year: 2015, Page(s):207 - 216

    This study is concerned with the H∞ control for the full-envelope unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in the presence of missing measurements and external disturbances. With the dramatic parameter variations in large flight envelope and the locally overlapped switching laws in flight, the system dynamics is modeled as a locally overlapped switched polytopic system to reduce designing conservati...

    In this paper, we study a class of manufacturing systems which consist of multiple plants and each of the plants has capability of producing multiple distinct products. The production lines of a certain plant may switch between producing different kinds of products in a time-sharing mode. We optimize the capacity configuration of such a system0s production lines with the objective to maximize the ... View full abstract»

  • View-invariant gait authentication based on silhouette contours analysis and view estimation

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2162 KB)

    In this paper, we propose a novel view-invariant gait authentication method based on silhouette contours analysis and view estimation. The approach extracts Lucas-Kanade based gait flow image and head and shoulder mean shape (LKGFI-HSMS) of a human by using the Lucas-Kanade0s method and procrustes shape analysis (PSA). LKGFI-HSMS can preserve the dynamic and static features of a gait sequence. The... View full abstract»
