  • 2016 23rd International Conference on Mechatronics and Machine Vision in Practice (M2VIP)

    'Mechatronics' has become accepted for what it is, the blending of mechanics, electronics and computer control into an integrated design. Mechatronic design can result in products which are much simpler than their intricate and costly predecessors and can make commonplace the miracles of yesterday. Much value-added comes from the skillful use of sensors and embedded machine intelligence. Machine-vision has emerged from the laboratory among other sophisticated sensors to find real applications in areas which include inspection, vehicle guidance and robot control. Low-cost cameras have been developed for multimedia applications, but with their ease of interfacing they offer a whole new field of low-cost vision-based control.

Multispot model of contacts based on surface features

R. D. Malucci Thirty-Sixth IEEE Conference on Electrical Contacts, and the Fifteenth International Conference on Electrical Contacts, 1990

A model to account for long-term degradation of stationary contacts is proposed. The model is based on introducing a third level of multispot constrictions on the surface of each asperity. The results of simulating fretting corrosion provided good agreement with existing test data. In the latter case it was found that variation of the basic parameter which represents film breakdown ...

A new post-deposition annealing method using furnace N/sub 2/O for the reduction of leakage current of CVD Ta/sub 2/O/sub 5/ storage capacitors

S. C. Sun; T. F. Chen International Electron Devices Meeting. Technical Digest, 1996

In this work, we present a new post-deposition annealing technique that employs furnace annealing in N/sub 2/O (FN/sub O/) to reduce the leakage current of CVD Ta/sub 2/O/sub 5/ thin films. The decrease in leakage current can be attributed to the reduction of oxygen vacancies by the atomic oxygen species generated from the dissociation of N/sub 2/O at high temperatures. ...

  • PV Arrays in Non¿¿¿homogeneous Conditions

    The design of any photovoltaic (PV) system is based on an awareness of the phenomena that might lead a decrease in plant power production, in real conditions, over its whole lifetime. Mismatching is one of the main sources of power reductions in a PV system's lifetime. The literature describes the closed loop existing between mismatching and cell aging, thus revealing the amplification of the detrimental effects of uneven aging of the cells. This chapter analyzes the main sources of mismatching and describes their effects on power production using data from the current literature. Bypass diodes are key components when the PV array is forced to work in mismatched conditions because of external or internal factors. They allow more power to be extracted from the PV array and to limit the probability of permanent damage to the cells. In some cases, modules are shipped from the factory with some bypass diode failures.

  • Radial-Basis Function Networks

    This chapter focuses on the radial-basis function (RBF) network as an alternative to multilayer perceptrons. It will be interesting to find that in a multilayer perceptron, the function approximation is defined by a nested set of weighted summations, while in a RBF network, the approximation is defined by a single weighted sum. The chapter focuses on the use of a Gaussian function as the radial-basis function. The reason behind the choice of the Gaussian function as the radial-basis function in building RBF networks is that it has many desirable properties, which will become evident as the discussion progresses. It is important to point out that RBF networks and multilayer perceptrons can be trained in alternative ways besides those presented. For multilayer perceptrons, the backpropagation algorithm is simple to compute locally and it performs stochastic gradient descent in weight space when the algorithm is implemented in an online learning mode.
