Multi-objective decision making using fuzzy discrete event systems: A mobile robot example
Boutalis, Yiannis; Schmidt, Klaus Verner (2010-09-29)
In this paper, we propose an approach for the multi-objective control of sampled data systems that can be modeled as fuzzy discrete event systems (FDES). In our work, the choice of a fuzzy system representation is justified by the assumption of a controller realization that depends on various potentially imprecise sensor measurements. Our approach consists of three basic steps that are performed in each sampling instant. First, the current fuzzy state of the system is determined by a sensor evaluation. Seco...
Multi-Point Single-Antenna Sensing Enabled by Wireless Nested Split-Ring Resonator Sensors
Ozbey, Burak; ERTÜRK, VAKUR BEHÇET; Kurç, Özgür; ALTINTAŞ, AYHAN; DEMİR, Hilmi Volkan (2016-11-01)
In this paper, simultaneous multi-point wireless sensing is proposed and demonstrated via multiple sensors in nested split-ring resonator (NSRR) geometry coupled to a single illuminator antenna. In this passive multi-point sensing system, each probe in the sensor array is assigned a non-overlapping spectral interval for frequency shift in response to local mechanical loading around a unique operating resonance frequency in the band of the antenna. Here, it is shown that the antenna is capable of capturing t...
Reachability analysis using proximity based automata
Kapinski, Jim; Schmidt, Klaus Verner; Krogh, Bruce (2004-01-01)
This paper introduces proximity based automata (PBA) to perform reachability analysis for discrete-time, continuous-state systems. The notion of proximity of states in the continuous valued state space is used to evaluate the response of the system efficiently. A PBA is constructed using ellipsoidal techniques and tools for solving optimization problems constrained by linear matrix inequalities. Several empirical studies demonstrate how trade-offs between conservativeness and computational complexity can be...
Wearable battery-less wireless sensor network with electromagnetic energy harvesting system
Chamanian, Salar; Ulusan, Hasan; Zorlu, Ozge; Baghaee, Sajjad; Uysal, Elif; Külah, Haluk (2016-10-01)
This paper presents a battery-less wireless sensor network (WSN) equipped with electromagnetic (EM) energy harvesters and sensor nodes with adjustable time-interval based on stored the energy. A wearable EM energy harvesting system is developed and optimized to power-up a typical wireless sensor mote from body motion. This is realized through characterization of the body motion and design of a compact EM energy harvester according to vibration frequencies generated during human running and walking. The harv...
KIRAGI, H; Ersak, Aydın (1994-04-14)
In this paper an object recognition and localization system based on ultrasonic range imaging to be used in optically opaque environments is introduced. The system is especially designed for robotics applications. The ultrasonic image is acquired by scanning ultrasonic transducers in two dimensions above the area where objects are located. The features that are used for recognition and localization processes are extracted from the outermost boundaries of the objects present in the input scene. Experimental ...
