In this paper, we aim to achieve robust and cost-effective room-level localization for the indoor mobile robot. It is unrealistic to obtain precise localization information from the sonar sensors because of the sparseness and uncertainty. Our attempts show that the room-level localization can be achieved using sonar sensors by accumulating the sonar data to overcome the limitations of sensor perfo... View full abstract»

The classical time-invariance assumption is often not (exactly) met in real-life applications. As a natural extension of the frequency response function (FRF), the time-variant FRF (TV-FRF) provides quick insight into the complex dynamics of time-variant systems. Recently, a procedure has been proposed to estimate nonparametrically the TV-FRF from known input, noisy output measurements of time-var... View full abstract»

Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):191 - 193
| | PDF (730 KB) | HTML

Many measurement instruments require an external timing reference to perform an accurate measurement. In equivalent-time oscilloscopes, for example, a trigger signal properly aligned to the data is essential, since they base their operation on a very accurate delay of the trigger, which is obtained by a clock and data recovery (CDR) circuit. In this paper, an adaptive bitrate CDR circuit for instr... View full abstract»
