2012 IEEE/ASME 8th International Conference on Mechatronic and Embedded Systems and Applications (MESA)

Mechanical and electrical systems show an increasing integration of mechanics with electronics and information processing. This integration is between the components (hardware) and the information-driven functions (software), resulting in integrated systems called mechatronic systems. The development of mechatronic systems involves finding an optimal balance between the basic mechanical structure, sensor and actuators, automatic digital information processing and control in which embedded systems play a key role. The goal of the 8th IEEE/ASME MESA'12, is to bring together experts from the fields of mechatronic and embedded systems, disseminate the recent advances made in the area, discuss future research directions, and exchange application experience.

The effect and reaction of information presentation in surveillance services

Mitsunari Uozumi; Kouichi Yamada; Shuto Murai; Hajime Asama; Kaoru Takakusaki The SICE Annual Conference 2013, 2013

Surveillance services are passive work. The surveillance operators are continuously waiting for an alarm. By adding active work to waiting time, the alarm process and disposal time of surveillance operator becomes short. We built a simulated environment of surveillance, and compared physiological reaction of subjects whose experiences were different. As a result, alarm disposal time is shortened in cases where ...

  • Surface EMG Applications in Neurophysiology

    This chapter focuses on the basics of surface electromyography (sEMG) and related methods for the study of human motor control and its adaptations. Recordings of voluntary sEMG provide partial information on the mechanisms involved in muscle activity. However, the combination of sEMG and methods based on electrically and magnetically evoked potentials allows stepping further in a comprehensive approach of movement strategies during tasks, and the influence of various factors such as etiology of cramps, fatigue, training, aging on such strategies. The recorded sEMG signal represents the electrical activity of numerous motor units. The chapter describes the basic methodology to record H-reflex and the relevant factors to consider when assessing its modulations. sEMG and evoked potentials provide relevant information on age-related changes within the muscle and the nervous system, as well as on the neural adjustments required to perform various motor tasks.

  • EMG and Posture in Its Narrowest Sense

    Surface electromyography (sEMG) has been used to identify which muscles could possibly have a significant postural role. Typically, such postural role is inspected by recording surface EMGs from different muscles when subjects sustain their body in different postures. The activation of different skeletal muscles can be well characterized for a specific posture. This chapter deals with electromyographic studies of the human standing posture. Some perturbations might be designed to reveal what happens in quiet standing. These perturbations have magnitude and bandwidth comparable to that of the spontaneous sways occurring in standing. The chapter highlights some standing- like-perturbation protocols that have been considered to investigate key aspects of the system controlling the human standing posture. It provides recent insights into the physiological interpretation of surface EMGs recorded from the pinnate gastrocnemius muscle during quiet standing. The chapter also outlines the high-density surface EMG (HDsEMG).

  • EMG in Exercise Physiology and Sports

    Surface electromyography (sEMG) is useful in studying many issues of motor control. This chapter analyzes the issues of coactivation, onset muscle timing, and characterization of exercise under the viewpoint of muscle coordination. Surface EMG has been widely used to study muscle coordination during locomotion such as walking, running, and cycling. The pattern of muscle activation during locomotion can be analyzed in terms of activity level and/or activation timing. A motor unit (MU) consists of a motoneuron in the spinal cord and the muscle fibers it innervates. The electrical activity in a muscle is determined by the number of motor units recruited and their mean discharge frequency of excitation, that is, the same factors that determine muscle force. The chapter investigates the physiological effects of static stretching upon delayed-onset muscle soreness (DOMS) in conjunction with the spinal alpha motoneuron pool excitability.
