The Modified Riccati Equation for Amplitude-Aided Target Tracking in Heavy-Tailed Clutter

Edmund Brekke; Oddvar Hallingstad; John Glattetre IEEE Transactions on Aerospace and Electronic Systems, 2011

The performance of tracking methods can most often only be assessed by means of Monte-Carlo simulations. An exception to this rule is the popular probabilistic data association filter (PDAF), whose root mean square error (RMSE) can be predicted by means of the modified Riccati equation (MRE). To the best of our knowledge, the first treatment along these lines for the ...

    Relativistic Flight Mechanics and Space Travel is about the fascinating prospect of future human space travel. Its purpose is to demonstrate that such ventures may not be as difficult as one might believe and are certainly not impossible. The foundations for relativistic flight mechanics are provided in a clear and instructive manner by using well established principles which are used to explore space flight possibilities within and beyond our galaxy. The main substance of the book begins with a background review of Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity as it pertains to relativistic flight mechanics and space travel. The book explores the dynamics and kinematics of relativistic space flight from the point of view of the astronauts in the spacecraft and compares these with those observed by earth's scientists and engineers-differences that are quite surprising. A quasi historical treatment leads quite naturally into the central subject areas of the book where attention is focused n various issues not ordinarily covered by such treatment. To accomplish this, numerous simple thought experiments are used to bring rather complicated subject matter down to a level easily understood by most readers with an engineering or science background. The primary subjects regarding photon rocketry and space travel are covered in some depth and include a flight plan together with numerous calculations represented in graphical form. A geometric treatment of relativistic effects by using Minkowski diagrams is included for completeness. The book concludes with brief discussions of other prospective, even exotic, transport systems for relativistic space travel. A glossary and simple end-of-chapter problems with answers enhance the learning process.

    In this paper we apply principles of mammalian locomotion to the development of an autonomous robot. The relevance of biological analyses to the fields of kinematics, construction and locomotor control is discussed. The control architecture presented here is based on coupled neuro-oscillators and models the locomotor behaviour of the machine on different levels. The locomotion of animals is controlled by only a small set of parameters.

  • Assisted Teleoperation Strategies for Aggressively Controlling a Robot Arm with 2D Input

    This paper studies assisted teleoperation techniques for controlling a 6DOF robot arm using click-and-drag input from a computer mouse. Experiments were conducted to investigate how task performance and user preferences are affected by low-level motion control strategies, which must deal with collision avoidance, dynamics constraints, and erroneous input. Five strategies were implemented and compared. As baseline strategies we study direct joint control and Cartesian positioning via inverse kinematics. We also implemented three obstacle avoidance strategies, including a predictive safety filter, a reactive potential field, and a real-time sample-based motion planner. Blind experimental trials assigned 22 novice subjects to five subgroups corresponding to each strategy and asked them to control the arm in simulation on a variety of reaching tasks in cluttered environments. Unsurprisingly, the obstacle avoidance strategies achieve major safety improvements, although subjects felt noticeably less in control of the robot than those using the baseline methods. The motion planning strategy shows the most promise; it completed tasks twice as fast as any other method and received high ratings for perceived safety, cooperativeness, and overall satisfaction.

  • A model of operant conditioning for adaptive obstacle avoidance

    We have recently introduced a self-organizing adaptive neural controller that learns to control movements of a wheeled mobile robot toward stationary or moving targets, even when the robot's kinematics are unknown, or when they change unexpectedly during operation. The model has been shown to outperform other traditional controllers, especially in noisy environments. This article describes a neural network module for obstacle avoidance that complements our previous work. The obstacle avoidance module is based on a model of classical and operant conditioning first proposed by Grossberg (1971). This module learns the patterns of ultrasonic sensor activation that predict collisions as the robot navigates in an unknown cluttered environment. Along with our original low-level controller, this work illustrates the potential of applying biologically inspired neural networks to the areas of adaptive robotics and control.

  • Electromyography-Driven Modeling for Simulating Subject-Specific Movement at the Neuromusculoskeletal Level

    This chapter provides a comprehensive description of subject-specific electromyography (EMG)-driven musculoskeletal models for the human lower extremity. EMG-driven modeling requires experimental human motion data to be captured for model calibration and operation. A musculoskeletal model is created from medical imaging data of bone and muscle surfaces, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or computed tomography. The multi-degrees of freedom (DOFs) model comprises five main components: musculotendon kinematics, musculotendon activation, musculotendon dynamics, moment computation, and model calibration. The chapter demonstrates the use of EMG-driven modeling to predict musculotendon units (MTUs) forces and the resulting joint moments about multiple DOFs during dynamic motor tasks. It outlines the use of EMG- driven modeling for applications in neurorehabilitation technologies. EMG- driven methodologies can be successfully applied to study dynamic tasks that involve muscle co-contraction. EMG-informed predictions of muscle forces acting on the hip have been also used to improve estimates of bone remodeling stimulus.

  • Glossary

    This book presents the configuration space method for computer-aided design of mechanisms with changing part contacts. Configuration space is a complete and compact geometric representation of part motions and part interactions that supports the core mechanism design tasks of analysis, synthesis, and tolerancing. It is the first general algorithmic treatment of the kinematics of higher pairs with changing contacts. It will help designers detect and correct design flaws and unexpected kinematic behaviors, as demonstrated in the book's four case studies taken from industry. After presenting the configuration space framework and algorithms for mechanism kinematics, the authors describe algorithms for kinematic analysis, tolerancing, and synthesis based on configuration spaces. The case studies follow, illustrating the application of the configuration space method to the analysis and design of automotive, micro-mechanical, and optical mechanisms. Appendixes offer a catalog of higher-pair mechanisms and a description of HIPAIR, an open source C++ mechanical design system that implements some of the configuration space methods described in the book, including configuration space visualization and kinematic simulation. HIPAIR comes with an interactive graphical user interface and many sample mechanism input files. The Configuration Space Method for Kinematic Design of Mechanisms will be a valuable resource for students, researchers, and engineers in mechanical engineering, computer science, and robotics.
