Shape

The shape of an object located in some space is a geometrical description of the part of that space occupied by the object, as determined by its external boundary – abstracting from location and orientation in space, size, and other properties such as colour, content, and material composition.

Dynamic Sliding Window Width Selection Strategies for Rate-Distortion Optimal Vertex-Based Shape Coding Algorithms

  • Shape recognition and vision-based robot control by shape morphing

    The article presents a unified approach for object recognition and recognition based control of robotic interactions with objects. The approach is based on morphing the shape of objects. The morph of one object to another is treated as a deformation and is defined such that it can be quantified using a physics based model. This quantification serves as a dissimilarity measure and is used for shape recognition. By storing the views that represent the grasp positions for different object, the proposed framework is used to identify the desired end position a robot needs to attain for interacting with the given object. Furthermore, the images synthesized during the morph define a view based trajectory, starting with the view defining the initial robot-object orientation to the view defining the desired robot-object orientation. We propose a technique where these synthetic images are used to control the motion of a PUMA 560 eye-in-hand manipulator to execute alignment and grasping tasks. The proposed approach does not require complete calibration information, obviates manual feature selection and correspondence, can provide smooth trajectories, and needs a single image for each object (in a 4-DOF formulation). Potential applications range from recognition and positioning with respect to partially occluded or deformable objects as well as planning robotic grasping based on human demonstration.

  • Dynamic Sliding Window Width Selection Strategies for Rate-Distortion Optimal Vertex-Based Shape Coding Algorithms

    Vertex-based operational-rate-distortion (ORD) shape coding algorithms frequently use a sliding window (SW) to both avoid trivial solutions and improve computational efficiency, with the choice of the SW-width enabling the encoder to trade between bit-rate and computational complexity. This paper presents some new strategies for dynamically determining the SW-width adaptive within the rate-distortion constraints. From a constrained bit-rate perspective, this is achieved by estimating the maximum number of significant points feasible for a prescribed bit-rate, while for an admissible distortion, an additional rate trade-off parameter selects the SW-width, with the optimal width determined for an encoder constrained by both rate and distortion. An efficient shape-adaptive technique is also presented that exploits the curvature of a shape to compute the SW-width. Experimental results confirm that the SW-width determined using the proposed strategies can be seamlessly and efficiently embedded into the ORD shape coding framework

  • Subdivision Algorithm of Quartic Q-Ball Curves with Shape Parameters

    With the aim to tackle the problems of the local shape adjustment and shape control of quartic Q-Ball curves, we propose two direct subdivision algorithms for quartic Q-Ball curves, which include coefficient subdivision and tangent subdivision. According to the two subdivision algorithms, the corresponding modeling examples are respectively given. Studies show that the sub-curves are independent and have no influence on other sub-curves in shape adjustment, which realize the local shape adjustment of the quartic Q-Ball curves and maintain the geometric meaning of shape parameters. The modeling examples show that the proposed subdivision algorithms are effective and easy to implement, which greatly improve the abilities to express complex curves in shape design by adjusting the position and shape of quartic Q-Ball curves.

  • A dynamic Bezier curve model

    Bezier curves (BC) are fundamental to a wide range of applications from computer-aided design through to object shape descriptions and surface mapping. Since BC only consider global information with respect to their control points, this can lead to erroneous shape representations, though integrating local control point information minimises this error. This paper presents a new dynamic Bezier curve (DBC) model which combines both localised and global shape information by making a parametric shift of the BC points in the gap between the curve and its control polygon. The value of the shifting parameter is dynamically determined for a prescribed maximum distortion. DBC retains the kernel properties of the BC without increasing computational complexity order. The model's performance has been empirically evaluated on a number of arbitrary-shaped objects from geometric modelling to shape coding. Both qualitative and quantitative results confirm the improvement achieved compared with the classical BC representation.

  • The Mathematical Model of A Novel Linear Actuator and its Control Strategy

In this paper, the work principle of the MSMA linear actuator is introduced, and based on the analysis and design on magnetic circuit and winding, the dynamic model of MSMA actuator and the simulating curves are given. After the control system is designed, the MSMA actuator prototype is proposed. The experimental results verify the model's validity and practicability of MSMA in intelligent system.

  • A regularization-based neural network for the measurement of shape information

    The measurement and disposal of shape information plays a vital role in strip rolling process and it also is one of the focus in strip rolling theory today. In this paper, based on the predictive shape control system, a predictive model is developed in which the regularization method is adopted. Through the simulation on the data of four high reversible rolling mills, it proved this model can conquer the defects of the mathematical model effectively and get a desirable performance of shape control easily.

  • Multi-scale and hierarchical description using energy controlled active balloon model

    A novel multiscale tree construction algorithm for three dimensional shape using energy controlled active balloon model (EC-ABM) is proposed. The key idea is that (1) internal and external energies and a number of surfaces which make up the ABM are controlled at each shrinking steps, and (2) each converged shape is regarded as one multiscale shape. Some experimental three dimensional recognition result of the proposed method with human face data are shown.

  • Research on integrated control technology of the seamless pipe shape

    In order to improve the pipe shape control performances of rolling mills and the pipe shape quality of products, special contour technologies of set control model of pipe shape and dynamic model of pipe shape as well as relevant pipe shape control models were developed for this type of rolling mills, on the basis of a large number of finite element simulations and experimental tests. Relevant pipe shape control models include the pipe shape setup control model in process control system (level 2), as well as the rolling force feedback control model, the feedback control model of wall thickness, the straightness feedback control model and the feedback control model of the ellipticity in basic automation system (level 1). After several complicated processes such as setup of off-line models, online programming, and debugging were finished, pipe shape contour technologies were stably applied in the rolling mill. The data in real production showed that the control technology of pipe shape could significantly improve its quality in rolling seamless steel pipe.
