Choi, Han-Ho ;
Journal of Institute of Control, Robotics and Systems, volume 11, issue 8, 2005, Pages 651~655
DOI : 10.5302/J.ICROS.2005.11.8.651
In this paper, we consider the problem of designing decentralized sliding mode control laws far a class of large scale systems with mismatched uncertainties. We derive a sufficient condition far the existence of a linear switching surface in terms of a linear matrix inequalities(LMIs), and we parameterize the linear switching surfaces in terms of the solution matrices to the given LMI existence conditions. We also give an algorithm for designing decentralized switching feedback control laws. Finally, we give a design example in order to show the effectiveness of our method.

Journal of Institute of Control, Robotics and Systems, volume 11, issue 8, 2005, Pages 656~661
DOI : 10.5302/J.ICROS.2005.11.8.656
This paper is concerned with an iterative linear matrix inequality (LMI) approach to the design of a structurally constrained output feedback controller such as decentralized control. The structured synthesis is formulated as a novel rank-constrained LMI optimization problem, where the controller parameters are explicitly described so as to impose structural constraints on the parameter matrices. An iterative penalty method is applied to solve the rank-constrained LMI problem. Numerical experiments are performed to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed method.

Control Method of Mobile Robots for Avoiding Slip and Turnover on Sloped Terrain Using a Gyro/Vision Sensor Module
Lee Jeong-Hee ; Park Jae-Byung ; Lee Beom-Hee ;
Journal of Institute of Control, Robotics and Systems, volume 11, issue 8, 2005, Pages 669~677
DOI : 10.5302/J.ICROS.2005.11.8.669
This acticle describes the control method of mobile robots for avoiding slip and turnover on sloped terrain. An inexpensive gyro/vision sensor module is suggested for obtaining the information of terrain at present and future. Using the terrain information and the robot state, the maximum limit velocity of the forward velocity of the robot is defined fur avoiding slip and turnover of the robot. Simultaneously the maximum value of the robot velocity is reflected to an operator in the form of reflective force on a forte feedback joystick. Consequently the operator can recognize the maximum velocity of the robot determined by the terrain information and the robot state. In this point of view, the inconsistency of the robot movement and the user`s command caused by the limit velocity of the robot can be compensated by the reflective force. The experimenal results show the effectiveness of the suggested method.

Noh Dong-Ki ; Kim Gon-Woo ; Lee Beom-Hee ;
Journal of Institute of Control, Robotics and Systems, volume 11, issue 8, 2005, Pages 678~687
DOI : 10.5302/J.ICROS.2005.11.8.678
This paper describes a relative localization algorithm using odometry data and consecutive local maps. The purpose of this paper is the odometry error correction using the area matching of two consecutive local maps. The local map is built up using a sensor module with dual laser beams and USB camera. The range data form the sensor module is measured using the structured lighting technique (active stereo method). The advantage in using the sensor module is to be able to get a local map at once within the camera view angle. With this advantage, we propose the AVS (Aligned View Sector) matching algorithm for. correction of the pose error (translational and rotational error). In order to evaluate the proposed algorithm, experiments are performed in real environment.

Journal of Institute of Control, Robotics and Systems, volume 11, issue 8, 2005, Pages 688~695
DOI : 10.5302/J.ICROS.2005.11.8.688
This paper describes dynamic manipulability analysis of robotic arms moving in viscous fluid. The manipulability is a functionality of manipulator system in a given configuration under the limits of joint ability with respect to the task required to be performed. To investigate the manipulability of underwater robotic arms, a modeling and analysis method is presented. The dynamic equation of motion of underwater manipulator is derived based on the Lagrange-Euler equation considering with the hydrodynamic forces caused by added mass, buoyancy and hydraulic drag. The hydrodynamic drag term in the equation is established as analytical form using Denavit-Hartenberg (D-H) link coordination of manipulator. Two analytical approaches based oil manipulability ellipsoid are presented to visualize the manipulability of robotic arm moving in viscous fluid. The one is scaled ellipsoid which transforms the boundary of joint torque to acceleration boundary of end-effector by normalizing the torques in joint space, while the other is shifted ellipsoid which depicts total acceleration boundary of end-effector by shifting the ellipsoid as much as gravity and velocity dependent forces in work space. An analysis example of 2-link manipulator with proposed analysis scheme is presented to validate the method.
Improvement of Energy Efficiency for an Omnidirectional Mobile Robot with Steerable Omnidirectional Wheels

Journal of Institute of Control, Robotics and Systems, volume 11, issue 8, 2005, Pages 696~703
DOI : 10.5302/J.ICROS.2005.11.8.696
Since most autonomous mobile robots are powered by a battery, it is important to increase the continuous operating time without recharging. This can be achieved by improving the energy efficiency of a mobile robot, but little research on energy efficiency has been performed. This paper proposes two methods for improving the energy efficiency of an omnidirectional mobile robot.. One method is to realize a continuously variable transmission (CVT) by adopting the mechanism of steerable omnidirectional wheels. The other is the proposed steering algorithm in which wheel arrangement of the mobile robot is continuously adjusted so as to obtain the maximum energy efficiency of the motors during navigation. In addition, new omnidirectional wheels which can be transformed to the conventional wheels depending on the driving conditions are proposed to compensate for less efficient omnidirectional drive mode. Various tests show that motion control of the OMR-SOW works satisfactorily and the proposed steering algorithm for CVT can provide higher energy efficiency than the algorithm using a fixed steering angle. In addition, it is shown that the differential drive mode can give better energy efficiency than the omnidirectional drive mode.
Development of a Variable Remote Center Compliance (VRCC) with Stiffness Adjusting Rods.
Lee, Sang-Cheo ;
Journal of Institute of Control, Robotics and Systems, volume 11, issue 8, 2005, Pages 704~708
DOI : 10.5302/J.ICROS.2005.11.8.704
In this paper, a simple idea is proposed to change the compliance center of the Remote Center Compliance (RCC) by adjusting the elasticity of the Elastomer Shear Pad (ESP). To vary the elasticity of the ESP, a hole is made in the ESP along its stiffness axis, and a stiffness adjusting rod (SAR) is inserted into the hole. By adjusting the insertion depth of the rod, lateral stiffness of the ESP can be varied, and the compliance center of the VRCC can be controlled accordingly. To verify the effectiveness of the proposed idea, a prototype VRCC is designed and, the position of the compliance center with various lengths of the inserted rod are measured.

As a way to build more efficient and intelligent container cranes for todays hub ports, communication networks are used to interconnect numerous sensors, actuators, controllers, and operator switches and consoles that are spatially distributed over a crane. Various signals such as sensor values and operator`s commands are digitized and broadcast on the network instead of using separate wiring cables. This not only makes the design and manufacturing of a crane more efficient, but also easier implementation of intelligent control algorithms. This paper presents the performance evaluation of CAN(Controller Area Network), TTP(Time Triggered Protocol) and Byteflight that can be used for cranes. Through discrete event simulation, several important quantitative performance factors such as the probability of a transmission failure, average system delay (data latency) and maximum system delay have been evaluated.
Adaptive filter Design for INS/GPS
Yu Myeong-Jong ;
Journal of Institute of Control, Robotics and Systems, volume 11, issue 8, 2005, Pages 717~725
DOI : 10.5302/J.ICROS.2005.11.8.717
The adaptive filter is proposed for the INS/GPS. The proposed filter can estimate the variance of the process noise using the residual of the filter. To verify the efficiency of the adaptive filter, it is applied to the loosely-coupled INS/CPS that employs the additive quaternion error model. Simulation results demonstrate that the proposed filter is more effective in estimating the attitude error than EKF.
Design of Autolanding Guidance and Control Algorithm Using Singular Perturbation
Ha, Cheol-Keun ; Choi, Hyoung-Sik ;
Journal of Institute of Control, Robotics and Systems, volume 11, issue 8, 2005, Pages 726~732
DOI : 10.5302/J.ICROS.2005.11.8.726
This paper proposes an autolanding guidance and control algorithm with the lateral guidance law. This algorithm is basically formulated and designed in feedback linearization based on singular perturbation. Main features of this algorithm are two facts. One of those is that when a certain situation happens that airplane must realign to the runway suddenly assigned due to unexpected environment change around the landing site, the heading guidance in this algorithm is very valuable, and the other is the fact that the inner loop control of this algorithm is able to be designed directly based on the Handling Quality Requirements that most flight control systems must be satisfied with. To illustrate the potential of this algorithm, 6-DOF nonlinear simulation based on the nonlinear airplane model shown in Ref. is carried out. The simulation results showed that the altitude response to the given landing trajectory is accurate, and the airplane heading alignment to the assigned runway from the lateral deviation is successful. It is noted that this algorithm is also applicable to unmanned aerial vehicle, which can be retrieved in autolanding technique, where the runway far retrieving the vehicle is in any direction for example at war field.

Moon, Yong-Seon ; Lee, Myung-Bok ; Jeong, Cheol-Ho ;
Journal of Institute of Control, Robotics and Systems, volume 11, issue 8, 2005, Pages 733~739
DOI : 10.5302/J.ICROS.2005.11.8.733
Device Description that is described as C-based DDL(Device Description Language) should be provided for the control system to use the progressive function of field device in the distributed control system. DD expresses field device function itself and parameter. DD is used to set a necessary function far a control strategy in the central control system. DD technology which was adopted as international standard IEC 61804-Part 2 is being used in PROFIBUS, Foundation Fieldbus and HART. However, the DD is dependent to the fieldbus and it doesn`t have a suitable form in the industrial Ethernet. This paper presents the possibility of a change from EDD(Electronic Device Description) and GSD(General Slave Data) used for integrating field devices to XDD(XML for Device Description) and verifies it`s effectiveness. Also, this paper presents research assignment on the XML application in the distributional system from now on by examining the possibility of Ethernet`s development in the industrial area.
