  • An architecture for application specific neural network processors

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):260 - 264
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (410 KB)

    The article presents an architecture and development environment for a family of neural network processors targeted at real-time control and signal processing applications. The architecture is based on a data parallel control enabling a high performance and flexibility to be obtained with minimal hardware complexity. This provides a cheap and easy means to manufacture high performance application ... View full abstract»

    The concentration of manufacturing in a mill brought about that well known phenomenon 'the industrial revolution' in which Britain led the world. That period of industrial development was based on a material model-simply making it work was the challenge. We are now embarking on a data driven society-the so-called 'systems society'. The paper explores industrial history through the town of Bury and... View full abstract»

    The North Sea is not for the faint-hearted. It is well known that working as a diver on gas and oil wells there is one of the most dangerous of all occupations. While the designers of control systems for unmanned platforms and subsea wells may not have to face the same physical dangers, they have a challenging task all the same. Frequently, these control systems must handle a mix of signals and su... View full abstract»

  • Active control of helicopter vibration

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):277 - 284

    The reduction of helicopter vibration is of great importance to the helicopter industry and considerable effort has been devoted to research into active methods for vibration reduction. The article describes how active control techniques can offer good vibration reduction over significant areas of the fuselage and also provide the capability to adapt to changing speed, rotor conditions and structu...

    The integration of a colour scanner, three-dimensional CAD/CAM system and stereolithography apparatus (SLA) provided a powerful means of building art to part. Artwork such as Chinese characters, human faces or flowers can be scanned by a scanner, converted into 3D reliefs within a CAD/CAM system and built using the SLA. In this article, the effectiveness of such an integrated system is illustrated... View full abstract»

  • Fuzzy logic control of a perlite plant

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):293 - 298
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (449 KB)

    Covers the application of fuzzy control to a perlite plant (similar to a cement plant). It details the development of the fuzzy control from an initial strategy to the one presently in use. Some simulation results are presented which confirm the practical observations that, for this plant, fuzzy control is more robust than the equivalent PID system.<> View full abstract»

    Their is a widely expressed concern that the present means of acquiring large, complex, bespoke software-based systems is unsatisfactory because the systems never fully meet the requirements of the users when they come on stream, and probably never can. Improving this situation has implications for both the technical and the commercial aspects of software procurement. A useful approach to meeting ... View full abstract»
