The aim of the conference is to support exchange of information and experience in the field of automation of engineering and production, in research, applications, and education, modeling and simulation of processes and systems. The four sister faculties of four universities of the Carpathian region (Kosice, Krakow, Ostrava, Miskolc), have ancient roots at Mining Academy in Banská Stiavnica (1762) founded together this conference. Later a university from Romania (Craiova) joined the organizers team. Every year the conference is organised by one of the five universities. Recently because the Czech partner let us know that he/she is unable to organise this year the conference we had to take the job of organising the conference.

  • Coordination in Sensor, Actuator, and Robot Networks

  • Cooperative Mobile Positioning

    Cooperative mobile positioning is becoming increasingly important as a promising new branch of wireless location in which several research directions are being explored (e.g., positioning, tracking, data fusion and clustering). This chapter first discusses the framework of cooperative mobile positioning framework and then introduces the COMET as an innovative solution for position determination in fourth generation (4G) wireless networks. It also presents a brief survey of cooperative localization in robot networks and wireless sensor networks (WSNs), and examines the cooperative mobile positioning approach and its overall benefits. The chapter further illustrates the data fusion and filtering techniques, which have been adapted to cope with the cooperative framework. Finally, it describes COMET, an example of a cooperative augmentation system (CAS) in a cellular network, with its system architecture and its data fusion methods; and explores its performance, which has been evaluated via computer simulations.

  • Current Collecting Systems, Protection Systems, and Auxiliary Services onboard Vehicles

    This chapter introduces the main devices installed onboard to ensure traction and complementary services. The devices include braking systems, electrochemical batteries, onboard protection systems, electrical power systems, compressed air production systems, and current collecting systems. Onboard protection systems are assigned to a main circuit breaker that is positioned immediately downstream of the current collecting system. Current collecting systems can be divided into two main families: systems based on overhead lines and pantographs, and systems based on third side rails and slippers. The auxiliary services onboard, depending on their power, can be supplied at different voltage levels. Electrochemical rechargeable batteries are of great importance in many electrical systems because they can store chemical energy that can be converted and sent whenever and wherever needed, in electrical form. Especially in railway systems, this kind of battery covers an important role, both for safety and for operations.

  • Distributed Navigation for Swarming with a Given Geometric Pattern

    This chapter offers a decentralized formation control algorithm to coordinate a network of mobile robotic sensors so that they collectively move into a rectangular lattice pattern from any initial deployment. Under this strategy, a network of mobile robotic sensors is moved in a pre-specified geometric pattern from any initial positions and should subsequently stay in the respective formation, while moving with a given speed. For conciseness and definiteness, this chapter focused on a rectangular pattern. Numerical simulations are presented to illustrate this algorithm. This chapter also ensures that the mobile robotic sensors move as a swarm with a desired geometric shape in a common direction with a common speed.

  • Applications in Movement and Gait Analysis

    Motion analysis is based on measuring trajectories, rotations of joints, torque values, temporal events, and muscle activities. Force plates embedded in the floors of motion analysis laboratories measure force transfer between foot and ground during gait. Kinematics, kinetics, and surface electromyography (sEMG) are used to identify the causes of motion impairment and the resulting compensatory movements, thus enhancing clinical assessment and supporting decisions such as choice of surgery, orthoses, and rehabilitation protocols. Surface EMG can provide information on the origin of motion produced by muscle activation. EMG during task execution enables muscle activities to be assessed rather than inferred from a combination of observation of movements and clinical evaluation performed under static conditions. To ensure data reliability in applications of motion analysis, raw sEMG data on a fixed y-axis scale must be checked before five criteria: filtering, envelope computation, data normalization, clinical report creation, and statistical analysis for research purposes.

  • Kinematics and Trajectory Planning

    This chapter addresses human hand anatomy, the problems of forward kinematics, inverse kinematics, differential kinematics, and trajectory planning. The joints of thumb and four fingers contain two saddle‐shaped articulating surfaces between two bones and is4 classified as saddle joints. Index, middle, ring, and little fingers include three revolute joints in order to do the angular movements. Kinematics is restricted to a natural geometrical description of motion, including positions, orientations, and their derivatives. A general systematic method needs to be derived to define the relative position and orientation of two consecutive links to calculate the forward kinematic equations for a serial n‐link revolute‐joint manipulator. The maximum joint angles of each joint depend on different individuals. It is necessary to know the desired paths before the robotic hand is controlled to execute a specific hand motion task.

  • 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.

  • Introduction to Self‐Organization

    This chapter contains sections titled: Understanding self‐organization Application scenarios for self‐organization

  • Conclusions and Future Work

    This chapter presents the conclusions described in the book related to the fusion of hard control strategies such as proportional integral‐derivative (PID), optimal, adaptive, and soft control strategies such as adaptive neuro‐fuzzy inference system (ANFIS), genetic algorithms (GA), particle swarm optimization (PSO), for a robotic or prosthetic hand. Chapter 2 of the book addressed the forward kinematics, inverse kinematics, and differential kinematics models of a serial n revolute‐joint planar two‐link thumb, and three‐link index finger. The fingertip (end‐effector) positions of each finger were derived by forward kinematics. Chapter 3 of the book described the dynamic equations of hand motion successfully derived via Lagrangian approach for two‐link thumb and three‐link fingers using the mathematical model of the actuator by using direct current (DC) motor and mechanical gears.

  • Introduction

    Due to the rapid development of communication and microelectronics technologies, it became possible to employ spatially distributed wireless sensor networks for performing tasks like target tracking, hazardous environment monitoring, and border surveillance in a geographically vast area. This chapter provides an introduction to this book, which is primarily a research monograph that describes some of the latest developments on distributed coverage control problems for mobile robotic sensor and actuator networks.
