    A major risk to system development lies in the improper determination of real time software performance requirements early in the development cycle. All too often, performance concerns are put off until test and integration, only to discover the software or hardware developed cannot perform the needed functions within the time allotted. One good way to avoid this embarrassing and costly problem is... View full abstract»

    Effective control strategies for robotic manipulators require on-line computation of the robot dynamic model in real-time. However, the complexity of robot dynamic model makes this difficult to achieve in practice. Neural networks are an attractive alternative for identification and control of robotic manipulators, because of their ability to learn and approximate functions. This paper presents th...

    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (212 KB)  

    The design of a VLSI circuit consists of a description of the circuit in terms of its components and subcomponents, at various levels of detail. To verify that the layout of a VLSI circuit conforms to its design, one needs to work backwards from the lowest-level description of the circuit and recognize the higher-level components it constitutes. This paper is concerned with the application of logi... View full abstract»

    Neural networks are well-suited for the modeling and control of complex physical systems because of their ability to handle complex input-output mapping (through supervised learning) without detailed analytical model of the systems. This paper investigates a Multilayer Neural Network (MNN) for the real-time identification and control of a DC motor. The MNN is first trained to learn the inverse dyn... View full abstract»

    Beginning with the phenomenological equations of remote sensing and atmospheric transmission, we show that the altitude of a bright point-source target (such as a missile or afterburning aircraft) within the atmosphere can be determined with a single spaceborne multispectral sensor. Our calculation assumes that the target signal can be isolated from its background. And we do not consider noise. Es... View full abstract»

    As military budgets shrink, military contractors are under increasing pressure to produce high performance, low cost systems. For new weapons systems, this pressure generally has meant exploiting the economies of scale of standardized, military-approved microprocessor chips. As currently-deployed systems age, an equally great need exists to tap these same economies of scale to extend the useful li... View full abstract»
