    The following fundamental concepts of measurement science have been briefly reported in this tutorial article: 1) The result of a measurement provides only incomplete knowledge of the measurand, whose true value remains unknown and unknowable; 2) The uncertainty concept plays a key role in quantifying the incompleteness of the knowledge provided by the measurement result; and 3) A measurement resu...

  • Machine intelligence grounded in reality

    Publication Year: 2006, Page(s):17 - 23
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2461 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The design, realization, and application of intelligent, autonomous, sensor-driven, behavior-based robotic agents are discussed. The authors have identified four philosophical goals for machine intelligence grounded in reality to flourish: integration, real-world issues, interdisciplinary teamwork, and critical thinking. Building a robot requires that the designer integrates control in electronic ... View full abstract»

    This article discusses a cheap star gazing set-up in a child's bedroom. It only required a cheap black and white (B&W) video camera and a form of projection TV pointed at the ceiling. A wireless 2.4-GHz 9-V battery powered charge coupled device (CCD) camera complete with a receiver and demodulator is used. View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (604 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    As computers continue to increase in speed, the advantages that machine learning can offer will likewise increase. Computational intelligence methods, such as neural, evolutionary, and fuzzy computing, will continue to be applied to diverse problems in instrumentation and measurement as well as other fields. As with all machine learning methods, these approaches require a data structure to represe... View full abstract»

    Including a learning mechanism in SMMAC (switched, multiple-model adaptive control) avoids the need for a priori knowledge of the model set of the plant to control and leads to a significant performance improvement with respect to the sole inclusion of an adaptive control channel in combination with switched fixed local controllers.

  • A new approach to the estimation of basic flow parameters within the electromagnetic measuring method for open channels

    Publication Year: 2006, Page(s):60 - 75
    Cited by:  Papers (2)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1259 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This column describes two issues for electromagnetic flowmeters used in open channels: 1) practical aspects of signal conditioning and 2) a new concept of signal processing to be applied in this field. The new signal processing technique uses a least squares (LS) method and provides information about the fluid's flow rate and its level in open channels. We confirmed these concerns by experiments c... View full abstract»

    This paper has given an intelligent approach to avoid centerless grinding process instabilities without the need for sensors. The model-based algorithm techniques detect the configurations and the conditions of the process under which instabilities appear. The models and techniques developed have proven very useful for defining the optimum configuration of the process. View full abstract»
