Control of Robotic Swarm Behaviors based on Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics

The paper presents a fluid dynamics based framework for control of emergent behaviors of robot swarms that are modeled as fluids. A distributed low-level control mechanism is developed based on Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) and it is coupled with a high-level control layer that is responsible for the control of fluid parameters to generate desired behaviors from the swarming characteristics of the robots. It is shown by simulations that using the same low-level SPH model, different swarming behaviors can emerge from the local interactions of robots according to the settings of the fluid parameters that are controlled by the high-level control layer.

Estimation of thermally stimulated current in as grown TlGaSeS layered single crystals by multilayered perceptron neural network
Kucuk, Ilker; Yildirim, Tacettin; Hasanlı, Nızamı; Ozkan, Husnu (Elsevier BV, 2011-6)
This paper presents an artificial neural network approach to compute thermally stimulated current (TSC) in as-grown T1GaSeS layered single crystals. The experimental data have been obtained from TSC measurements. The network has been trained by a genetic algorithm (GA). The results confirmed that the proposed model could provide an accurate computation of the TSC.

Bulut, Nebi; Turgut, Ali; Aríkan, Kutluk (SCITEPRESS, AV D MANUELL, 27A 2 ESQ, SETUBAL, 2910-595, PORTUGAL; 2019)
This paper presents the control of an aerial manipulation system with a quadrotor and a 2-DOF robotic arm by using the computed torque control method. The kinematic and dynamic model of the system is obtained by modeling the quadrotor and the robotic arm as a unified system. Then, the equation of motion of the unified system is got in the form of a standard robot dynamics equation. For the trajectory control of the system, computed torque control is used. Gains of the controller are optimized by using nonli...
Control of an underactuated system around a periodic orbit
Duyul, Ayşe Deniz; Alatan, Abdullah Aydın; Ankaralı, Mustafa Mert; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2018)
Quasi-periodic behavior is one of the most important fundamental building blocks for locomotion in biological (and robotic) systems. The dynamics that govern the motion of such behaviors are generally highly nonlinear and underactuated. One method of analyzing the quasi-periodic behaviors of such systems is to linearize the system around these periodic trajectories. Such a linearization provides us a linear time periodic (LTP) system around the neighborhood of the periodic orbit. Analysis and control of LTP...
Adaptive longitudinal control of aircraft using synthetic jets
Muse, Jonathan A.; Kutay, Ali Türker; Calise, Anthony J. (2007-01-01)
This paper presents an adaptive control approach for controlling the longitudinal dynamics of a generic lifting surface using imbedded flow control actuators. Such actuators offer a unique opportunity for rapid maneuvering and gust rejection with low power consumption. The model's state is controlled over a broad range of angles of attack and model dynamic characteristics when the baseline flow is fully attached using bi-directional pitching moment that is effected by flow-controlled trapped vorticity conce...
