  • Model-Based Proprioceptive State Estimation for Spring-Mass Running

    Autonomous applications of legged platforms will inevitably require accurate state estimation both for feedback control as well as mapping and planning. Even though kinematic models and low-bandwidth visual localization may be sufficient for fully-actuated, statically stable legged robots, they are inadequate for dynamically dexterous, underactuated platforms where second order dynamics are dominant, noise levels are high and sensory limitations are more severe. In this paper, we introduce a model based state estimation method for dynamic running behaviors with a simple spring-mass runner. By using an approximate analytic solution to the dynamics of the model within an Extended Kalman filter framework, the estimation accuracy of our model remains accurate even at low sampling frequencies. We also propose two new event-based sensory modalities that further improve estimation performance in cases where even the internal kinematics of a robot cannot be fully observed, such as when flexible materials are used for limb designs. We present comparative simulation results to establish that our method outperforms traditional approaches which rely on constant acceleration motion models and that it eliminates the need for an extensive and unrealistic sensor suite.

  • A Temporal Kernel-Based Model for Tracking Hand Movements from Neural Activities

    We devise and experiment with a dynamical kernel-based system for tracking hand movements from neural activity. The state of the system corresponds to the hand location, velocity, and acceleration, while the system's input are the instantaneous spike rates. The system's state dynamics is defined as a combination of a linear mapping from the previous estimated state and a kernel-based mapping tailored for modeling neural activities. In contrast to generative models, the activity-to-state mapping is learned using discriminative methods by minimizing a noise-robust loss function. We use this approach to predict hand trajectories on the basis of neural activity in the motor cortex of behaving monkeys and find that the proposed approach is more accurate than a static approach based on support vector regression and the Kalman filter.

  • Intelligent Transportation Systems: Roadway Applications

    Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) is a new field, encompassing all modes of transportation of people and goods. The focus of this chapter is on intelligent road transportation and on the role of control technologies in this interdisciplinary area. Two primary control-relevant topics in ITS are traffic control technologies and intelligent vehicles. The former can be further classified into street traffic and highways. Street traffic applications include signaling for both single intersections and networks of intersections, where the control variables are traffic light timings, and routing, in which traffic flow along different roads is manipulated to optimize some overall efficiency or congestion criterion. Highway traffic control applications range from the relatively mundane one of ramp control or metering to the exotic prospect of Automated Highway Systems (AHS) in which multiple vehicles operate as platoons. The grander visions of traffic control require a number of practical considerations to be addressed, including identification, sensing, and actuation over roadways with wireless networks. Intelligent vehicles require the incorporation within automobiles of intelligence and autonomy capabilities. (See Chapter 5 for a general discussion of intelligent control.) Limited autonomy is exhibited even in today's automobiles with cruise control and antilock braking systemsï¿¿-ï¿¿these loops automate throttle control and brake control. More meaningful autonomy requires closing a third loop, that of steering. (This requires a drive-by-wire capability that is currently lacking in production automobiles.) Furthermore, the overall problem must be considered a multivariable one. The chapter presents mathematical formulations and solution approaches for advanced cruise control, which includes automatic braking as well as acceleration, lane keeping with a sliding-mode-like nonlinear controller (Chapter 8 discusses sliding-mode control in detail), and lane changing.

  • Effector Combination Logic

    The purpose of the effector combination or mixing logic is to convert the flight control system (FCS) acceleration demands to thrust vector control (TVC) or aerosurface deflections or thrust variations commands. This chapter describes the mixing logic algorithm, which optimizes the actuator effectiveness, because it takes into consideration the vehicle geometry, thrusts, angle of attack, mass properties, aero-surface coefficients and the capability of each effector in the required directions. It presents the derivation of a mixing-logic matrix for a vehicle that is controlled by gimbaling TVC engines, throttling engines or reaction control jets, and aerosurfaces. Selecting an effector combination logic by inspection is not very easy and, hence the chapter shows the use of the mixing-logic algorithm. The mixing-logic matrix is illustrated with a space shuttle example where the flight control system stability and performance during ascent are analyzed.

  • Generalized Almost-Cyclostationary Processes

    In Chapter 2, the class of the generalized almost-cyclostationary (GACS) processes is presented and characterized. GACS processes have multivariate statistical functions that are almost-periodic function of time. The (generalized) Fourier series of these functions have both coefficients and frequencies, named lag-dependent cycle frequencies, that depend on the lag shifts of the processes. Almost-cyclostationary processes are obtained as special case when the frequencies do not depend on the lag parameters. The problems of linear filtering and sampling of GACS processes are addressed. The cyclic correlogram is shown to be, under mild conditions, a mean-square consistent and asymptotically Normal estimator of the cyclic autocorrelation function. Such a function allows a complete second-order characterization in the wide-sense of GACS processes. Numerical examples of communications through Doppler channels due to relative motion between transmitter and receiver with constant relative radial acceleration are considered. Simulation results on statistical function estimation are carried out to illustrate the theoretical results. Proofs of the results in Chapter 2 are reported in Chapter 3.
