As analog and digital integrated circuits achieve higher levels of integration, testing and test time become a more serious production problem. To keep testing under control, manufacturers are relying on several methods to obtain an acceptable quality level for ICs. These include tighter process control, high temperature testing, limited pattern tests, special circuits for test, and wafer rejection criteria. The ...

We aim to enable additional sensation when using an anthropomorphic finger motion interface. To do so, we applied a conventional method to generate pseduo-haptics. To control the amount of scroll resulting from finger displacement on a display, illusory resistance or pseudo friction was confirmed by subjective evaluation. We first clarified that this illusory resistance influences finger walking behavior such as ...

  • ARM® Microcontroller Software and Instruction Set

    This chapter provides general information about the ARM® Cortex ® -M4 microcontroller software and instruction set. It first introduces ARM® Cortex ® -M4 Assembly instruction and then discusses the related C codes with some necessary peripheral device driver libraries provided by the vendor. There are about 203 instructions in the ARM® Cortex ® -M4 instruction set excluding the FPU related instructions. The user's source codes developed by assembly language must follow certain rules and meet some requirements to enable the assembler to correctly convert them to the target or object codes. Generally each user's instruction in the user's source code file is composed of four fields: Label field, Operation field, Operands field and Comment field. Pseudo instructions are very useful to help users to build and develop their application programs by providing more controls and managements to the memory space, variables, and constants used in the program.

  • Fusion of Hard and Soft Control Strategies II

    This chapter presents the fusion, hybrid or integration of hard control (HC) and soft control (SC) strategies to enhance the performance in terms of controlling a robotic or prosthetic hand that could not be achieved by using either HC or SC strategy. The chapter also introduces fuzzy‐logic‐based proportional‐derivative (PD) fusion control strategy, presenting genetic‐algorithm‐based proportional integral‐derivative (PID) fusion control strategy. Case III covers the value 100 in lower bound, but both total error and convergent speed are even worse than PID alone, suggesting that GA performs better for a large range. The tracking errors for both PD and FL controllers are convergent to zero within 5 seconds without overshooting, but PID controller takes longer with overshooting and oscillation.

  • 6 Training Somaesthetic Skills

    In chapter 5, I offered some building blocks for a theory of soma design. I suggested four criteria that characterize soma designs: (1) sociodigital material, (2) interactivity, (3) a perpetual state of being designed (because these designs are changed by their interactions with users), and (4) the production of somaesthetic experiences. I suggested that soma designers will draw on strong concepts, including biofeedback loops, somaesthetic touch, and kinaesthetic mimicry, to produce characteristic somaesthetic experiences or feelings, particularly a sense of suppleness, evocative balance, or a certain machine aesthetics. In short, chapter 5 gave us the beginnings of a vocabulary that will be useful to designers trying to capture, discuss, or develop their soma designs.

  • 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.

  • 2 Steps

    More than a hundred years ago, artists such as Georges Seurat and Paul Signac began to experiment with using small dots of pure color to create an image. The descendants of this technique—television and digital displays of all kinds—are now so common that it's hard to remember that there was a time when people never looked at visual representations made of little dots.

  • Dynamic Models

    This chapter discusses how electric motors are used to actuate the joints of small size manipulators, like robotic hand. It is necessary to have a mathematical model that describes the dynamic behavior of robotic hand for the purpose of designing the control system. The chapter discusses the relation related to the coupling between the motor gear and loaded joint gear in the absence of slipping. The dynamic equations of hand motion are derived via Lagrangian approach using kinetic energy and potential energy. Diagonal matrices represent armature inductances, armature resistances, and motor back e.m.f. constants. A diagonal positive definite matrix and sign (q) is a vector whose components are given by the sign functions of the single joint velocities.

  • Introduction

    At night you can see the lights sometimes from a passing tanker or trawler. From up on the cliffs they are mundane, but down here they fugue into ambiguity. For instance, I cannot readily tell if they belong above or below the waves. The distinction now seems mundane; why not everything all at once! —Narrator, Dear Esther (The Chinese Room 2012)

  • 2 Touching the Looking Glass

    Apple has changed the videogame industry irrevocably, and the simple truth is that it has changed it without even really trying. It did it with a handheld device that has no buttons, no sticks and no ports for physical media. —Edge, “An Accidental Empire” (2012)
