  • Investigations in Thick Film Components for High Temperature Systems

    In the near future electronic systems and circuits which are able to work at high temperatures will be used for sensor and actuator applications, especially where cooling is not possible or very difficult. A second reason for developing high temperature sensor systems is to avoid long signal ways between sensor and signal processing electronic in order to improve EMC- properties. Using thick film hybrid technology provides an easy way of constructing high temperature electronics. But normally thick film components are not specified for temperatures higher than 423 K. Our goal is to characterize and to optimize thick film components for a large temperature range. In order to get information about high temperature behaviour, it is necessary to use suitable testing techniques. This report will introduce some methods like linear test or step stress test which allow accelerated life tests in order to extract the temperature coefficient as well as the behaviour of degradation. In case of thick films, results for preselections can be easily obtained. Results of examined thick film resistors tested up to 773 K will be presented as an example.

  • Beyond physical grounding and naive time: investigations into short-term memory for autonomous agents

    In this paper we present some experiments coinparing different connectionist dynamic memory models in an interactive context, including a novel version of a second-order architecture, along with an extended discussion of some foundational issues to s'hich they relate. The scenario is a fine-grained simulation of a sensor-based, non-holonomic mobile robot moving in a two dimensional environment in which are set paradigmatic short-term memory experiments involving delayed response tasks for the robotic subject. We set out our position initially in relation to symbolic AI. connectionism and nouvelle AI. In particular. we argue that despite its practical successes, the last named approach does not escape from a foundational error that in different guises undermines the programmatic aspirations of all three. We suggest that this representational problem is inherent in the implementational granularity of systems such as the subsumption architecture and argue for the notion of embedding in time, as a first step around the impasse.

  • Improving the DAC Architecture by Using Proprioceptive Sensors

    Previous research has proposed the distributed adaptive control (DAC) architecture as a self-organizing controller for autonomous mobile robots. Despite its successes, practical experience has indicated several options for improvement. This paper proposes a new control architecture for mobile robots that can be seen as an extension of the DAC architecture. The control architecture consists of a controller and a value system. The controller uses the activity patterns of visual sensors to determine the motor commands, whereas the value system receives stimuli from proprioceptive sensors. This design decision is justified by the following arguments: (1) both components are significantly decoupled by using different sensory modalities; (2) the feedback of proprioceptive sensory patterns is omnipresent in biological systems and has been widely neglected in control systems; and (3) proprioceptive sensors operate more reliably and can be used more efficiently than visual sensors, such as pixels in CCD camera. Practical experiments with the Khepera robot show that by using proprioceptive sensors, the control architecture considerably better adapts to changing environments and that it yields very robust behavior with respect to sensor failures.

  • Redrawing the Boundary between Organism and Environment

    In this position paper, I argue that a fruitful, and as yet largely unexplored, avenue for artificial life research lies in modelling organisms (specifically, phenotypes) and environment as a single dynamical system. From this perspective, the origin and evolution of life is the progressive control of the dynamical system at a local level by constraints which are represented on an organism's genome. Such an approach shifts the focus of artificial life models away from the design of individuals, towards the interaction of an individual with its dynamic environment. It also blurs the boundary between organism and environment; the most important modelling distinction is no longer between an organism's body and its external environment, but rather between the genome (which is treated as an essentially symbolic structure) and phenotype-plus-environment combined. An evolutionary cellular automata system, called EvoCA, is introduced as a tool to explore these ideas. To demonstrate how this approach differs from traditional studies, two example applications of EvoCA are presented. One concerns sensor and effector evolution; the other concerns the origin of life, and in particular the evolution of genome- regulated self-stabilising dynamics. Advantages of the new approach are swmnarised, and sorne potential criticisms are considered. The paper concludes with a discussion of some implications of this shift in perspective.

  • Demand for High???Performance SOI Devices

    This chapter discusses that silicon???on???insulator (SOI) devices would continue to contribute to high???speed device technology because most demands from industry were expressed simply as ???high???speed digital signal processing???. Recently, however, the issue of energy consumption has become an international concern. Global warming, energy harvesting, and sensor networks for various social risks are pushing demands for lower energy consumption in every country. As a large part of this demand can be satisfied by electronics based technology, several innovations are being targeted. It is clear that SOI device technology can contribute to greater power savings. Actually, SOI devices are promising low???power devices when the device architecture is optimized for each application. The chapter also addresses how the fully depleted SOI metal oxide semiconductor field???effect transistor (MOSFET), and multigate SOI devices including Fin field???effect transistors (FinFETs) and gate???all???around (GAA) MOSFETs, can contribute to low???energy device technologies.

  • Dynamical Systems for the Behavioral Organization of an Anthropomorphic Mobile Robot

    We present a generative approach to behavioral organization which uses continuous dynamical systems for switching between multiple actions of an ant hropomorphic robot. The logical context of the possible actions is coded in matrices of parameters for a system of continuous differential equations. The sensor context is represented by a set of variable parameters depending on the sensor inputs. The switching between the behaviors is the result of nonlinear phase transitions in the solution of the underlying dynamical system. The stability of the overall system is guaranteed even for many different behaviors by keeping coupled behaviors on separated timescales. This is demonstrated on the anthropomorphic robot ARNOLD for the example of approaching a door. The robot searches for the door visually, recognizes it, points at it, and approaches it. The dynamical systems approach allows for a flexible change of a running behavioral sequence after unexpected perturbations brought about by dynamic changes in the environment.

  • An Art Gallery Approach to Ensuring That Landmarks Are Distinguishable

    How many different classes of partially distinguishable landmarks are needed to ensure that a robot can always see a landmark without simultaneously seeing two of the same class? To study this, we introduce the chromatic art gallery problem. A guard set S ⊂ P is a set of points in a polygon P such that for all p ∈ P, there exists an s ∈ S such that s and p are mutually visible. Suppose that two members of a finite guard set S ⊂ P must be given different colors if their visible regions overlap. What is the minimum number of colors required to color any guard set (not necessarily a minimal guard set) of a polygon P? We call this number, χG(P), the chromatic guard number of P. We believe this problem has never been examined before, and it has potential applications to robotics, surveillance, sensor networks, and other areas. We show that for any spiral polygon Pspi, χG(Pspi) ≤ 2, and for any staircase polygon (strictly monotone orthogonal polygon) Psta, χG(Psta) ≤ 3. For lower bounds, we construct a polygon with 4k vertices that requires k colors. We also show that for any positive integer k, there exists a monotone polygon Mk with 3k2 vertices such that χG(Mk) ≥ k, and for any odd integer k, there exists an orthogonal polygon Rk with 4k2 + 10k + 10 vertices such that χG(Rk) ≥ k.

  • Dynamics for vision-based autonomous mobile robots

    We present a dynamical systems approach to generate basic navigation behaviors implemented on an autonomous mobile vehicle. In this approach, a behavior is expressed as a stable state of a variable in a dynamical systems equation. The value of this behavioral variable is specified by incoming information which is provided by the sensory systems typically but can also be determined by other behavioral levels. Multiple sources of information act as forces in the vector field of the dynamical equation that describes a specific behavioral level. Each force votes for a certain value of the behavioral variable, it has a strength that represents the relative importance or certainty of the specified information and it is supplied with a range, that determines the overlap between the multiple incouplings. As an example for this approach on the sensor side, we describe a dynamical optical flow estimation that takes advantage of the favorable stability properties of this type of dynamical systems as robust estimators particularly suited for ambiguous and noisy visual information. On the effector side we present an obstacle avoidance scheme that employs a dynamical system for steering a visually guided mobile robot platform in an indoor environment with obstacles. By coupling of the sensor- and the effector system, a closed loop navigation behavior is achieved.
