A Design on Robust Model Following Servo System Using
Kim, Chung-Tek ; Hwang, Hyun-Joon ;
Journal of Institute of Control, Robotics and Systems, volume 6, issue 2, 2000, Pages 121~126
In the fast sampling limit the delta operator model tends to the analog system model. This fundamental property of the delta operator model unifies continuous and discrete time control system. In this paper we study robust linear optimal model following servo system in the presence of disturbances and parameter perturbations. A technique to directly design the generalized differential operator based unified control system that covers both differential operator based continuous time and delta operator based discrete time case is presented. The quadratic criterion function for a linear system is used to design the robust unified servo control system The characteristics of the proposed servo system are analysed and simulated to verify the robustness.

Kim, Sung-Soo ; Lee, Jae-Gi ; Choi, Jin-Young ;
Journal of Institute of Control, Robotics and Systems, volume 6, issue 2, 2000, Pages 127~137
This paper presents a novel neural based controller which controls the water level of the nuclear power plant steam generator. The controller consists of a model reference feedback linearization controller and a PI controller for stabilizing the feedback linearization controller. The feedback linearization controller consists of a neural network model and an inversing module which uses the neural network model for computing the control input to the steam generator. We chose Piecewise Linearly Trained Network(PLTN) and Recurrent Neural Netwrok(RNN) for an approximator of the plant and used these approximators in calculating the input from the feedback linearization controller. Combining the above two controllers gives a result of better performance than the case which uses only a PI controller Each control result of PLTN and RNN is given.

Journal of Institute of Control, Robotics and Systems, volume 6, issue 2, 2000, Pages 138~145
In this paper an initial alignment algorithm for a strapdown inertial navigation system is implemented using a RISC CPU board. The algorithm computes roll pitch and yaw angles of the direction cosine matrix utilizing measured components of the specific force and earth rate when the navigation system is stationary. The coarse alignment algorithm is performed first and then the fine alignment algorithm containing a 3rd-order gyrocompass loop follows. The experimental set consists of an IMU a CPU board and a monitoring system Experimental results show that the implemented algorithm can be utilized in navigation systems.

Park, Jong-Hyeon ; Kim, Young-Seok ;
Journal of Institute of Control, Robotics and Systems, volume 6, issue 2, 2000, Pages 146~154
controller is designed for active suspensions of vehicles using 7-degree-of-freedom full-car model. Its performance robustness as well as stability robustness to system parameter variations and unmodelled dynamics are assured through the
-framework. The performance of the
controller is compared with that of a LQC controller in compute simulations. From the simulations it is found that the active suspension with the
controller reduces the acceleration and motion of the sprung mass in the heaving rolling and pitching directions when the car is driven on a normal road or through an asymmetric bump. The suspension stroke and the road holding capability are also improved with a relatively small level of power consumption. Overall the
controller shows a more robust performance than that of the LQG design.
A study on Moving OBstacle Avoidance for an Intelligent Vehicle Using Fuzzy Controller
Kim, Hun-Mo ;
Journal of Institute of Control, Robotics and Systems, volume 6, issue 2, 2000, Pages 155~163
This paper presents a path planning method of the sensor based intelligent vehicle using fuzzy logic controller for avoidance of moving obstacles in unknown environments. Generally it is too difficult and complicated to control intelligent vehicle properly by recognizing unknown terrain with sensors because the great amount of imprecise and ambiguous information has to be considered. In this respect a fuzzy logic can manage such the enormous information in a quite efficient manner. Furthermore it is necessary to use the relative velocity to consider the mobility of obstacles, In order to avoid moving obstacles we must deliberate not only vehicle's relative speed toward obstacles but also self-determined acceleration and steering for the satisfaction of avoidance efficiency. In this study all the primary factors mentioned before are used as the input elements of fuzzy controllers and output signals to control velocity and steering angle of the vehicle. The main purpose of this study is to develop fuzzy controllers for avoiding collision with moving obstacles when they approach the vehicle travelling with straight line and for returning to original trajectory. The ability are and effectiveness of the proposed algorithm are demonstrated by simulations and experiments.
Tracking of a Moving Target Using the Accumulated Ultrasonic Image
Han, Moon-Yong ; Hahn, Hern-Soo ;
Journal of Institute of Control, Robotics and Systems, volume 6, issue 2, 2000, Pages 164~172
To follow a moving target keeping a certain distance it is essential for a mobile robot to detect the target first and to measure its pose and velocity. This paper proposes a new solution for this problem using the accumulated ultrasonic image which is constructed by accumulating the returned ultrasonic signal along the time axis for a certain number of measurement periods. A moving target is separated by selecting the trajectory whose inclination is different from others in the imag since the inclination of a trajectory represents the relative speed of the target against the mobile robot. The proposed algorithm was implemented on a mobile robot and has shown that the robot follows a moving target successfully.
Study on Multiple Ground Target Tracking Algorithm Using Geographic Information
Kim, In-Taek ; Lee, Eung-Gi ;
Journal of Institute of Control, Robotics and Systems, volume 6, issue 2, 2000, Pages 173~180
During the last decade many researches have been working on multiple target tracking problem in the area of radar application, Various approaches have been proposed to solve the tracking problem and the concept of sensor fusion was established as an effort. In this paper utilization of geographic information for ground target tracking is investigated and performance comparison with the results of applying sensor fusion is described. Geographic information is used in three aspects: association masking target measurement and re-striction of removing true target. Simulation results indicate that using two sensors shows better performance with respect to tracking but a single with geographic information is a winner in reducing the number of false tracks.

Kim, Sung-Bok ;
Journal of Institute of Control, Robotics and Systems, volume 6, issue 2, 2000, Pages 181~189
This paper presents the optimal redundant actuation of parallel manipulators for complicated robotic applications such as cutting grinding drilling and digging that require a high degree of operational stiffness as well as the balance between force applicability and dexterity. First by taking into account the distribution(number and location) of active joints the statics and the operational stiffness of a redundant parallel manipulator are formulated and the effects of actuation redundancy are analyzed, Second for given task requirements including joint torque limit task force maximum allowable disturbance and maximum allowable deflection the task execution conditions of a redundant parallel manipulator are derived and the efficient testing formulas are provided. Third to achieve high operational stiffness while maintaining moderate dexterity the redundant actuation of a parallel manipulator is optimized which determines the optimal distribution of active joints and the optimal internal joint torque, Finally the simulation results for the optimal redundant actuation of a planar parallel manipulator are given.
A Coordination Control Methodlolgy for Two Cooperating Arms Handling a Single Object
Yeo, Hee-Joo ;
Journal of Institute of Control, Robotics and Systems, volume 6, issue 2, 2000, Pages 190~196
A hybrid position/force control scheme to regulate the force and position by dual arms is proposed where two arms are treated as one rm in a kinematic viewpoint. The force error calculated from the information of two force/torque sensors attached to the end of each arm is transferred to minimum configuration space coordinates and then is distributed to total system joint coordinates, The position adjustment at the total con-figuration coordinates is computed based on the effective compliance matrix with respect to total joint coordinates which is obtained by coordinate transformation between the task coordinates and the total joint coordinates. The proposed scheme is applied to sawing task. When the trajectory of the saw is planned to follow a line in a horizontal plane 2 position parameters are to be controlled(i.e., two translational positions) Also a certain level of contact force has to be controlled along the vertical direction(i.e. minus z-direction) not to loose the contact with the object to be sawn. We experimentally show that the performance of the velocity and force response are satisfactory. The proposed hybrid control scheme can be applied to arbitrary two cooperating arm system regardless of their kinematic structure and the number of actuated joints.

A hybrid control structure for vision-based soccer robot system is considered. The structure is om-posed of four levels such as the role action behavior and execution levels. The control structure which is a combination of hierarchical and behavioral structures can efficiently meet the behavior and design specifications of a soccer robot system Among the four levels only the design of the action level is proposed in the paper and is experimentally evaluated. Design hypothesis and evaluation method are presented to improve the reliability and accomplishment of the robot system. Due to the essential element of soccer robot system design a systematic design procedure of the action level is proposed With the proposed structure and algorithm of the action level the excellent result was shown at the MiroSot'98 held in France.
Weld Quality Monitoring System Development Applying A design Optimization Approach Collaborating QFD and Risk Management Methods
Son, Joong-Soo ; Park, Young-Won ;
Journal of Institute of Control, Robotics and Systems, volume 6, issue 2, 2000, Pages 207~216
This paper introduces an effective system design method to develop a customer oriented product using a design optimization process and to select a set of critical design paramenters,. The process results in the development of a successful product satisfying customer needs and reducing development risk. The proposed scheme adopted a five step QFD(Quality Function Deployment) in order to extract design parameters from customer needs and evaluated their priority using risk factors for extracted design parameters. In this process we determine critical design parameters and allocate them to subsystem designers. Subsequently design engineers develop and test the product based on these parameters. These design parameters capture the characteristics of customer needs in terms of performance cost and schedule in the process of QFD, The subsequent risk management task ensures the minimum risk approach in the presence of design parameter uncertainty. An application of this approach was demonstrated in the development of weld quality monitoring system. Dominant design parameters affect linearity characteristics of weld defect feature vectors. Therefore it simplifies the algorithm for adopting pattern classification of feature vectors and improves the accuracy of recognition rate of weld defect and the real time response of the defect detection in the performance. Additionally the development cost decreases by using DSP board for low speed because of reducing CPU's load adopting algorithm in classifying weld defects. It also reduces the cost by using the single sensor to measure weld defects. Furthermore the synergy effect derived from the critical design parameters improves the detection rate of weld defects by 15% when compared with the implementation using the non-critical design parameters. It also result in 30% saving in development cost./ The overall results are close to 95% customer level showing the effectiveness of the proposed development approach.

Kang, Ki-Ho ; Kim, Kyoung-Seo ;
Journal of Institute of Control, Robotics and Systems, volume 6, issue 2, 2000, Pages 217~227
Although inverter-driven hydraulic elevators(HEL's) have advantages over traditional valve-controlled HEL's energy efficiency and performance they need robustness in performance and stability to accomodate nonlinearities big parametric variations and resonances in mechanical-hydraulic inner system. In this paper a robust controller based on DGKF/
mixed approach is applied to a HEL system with carring capacity of 24 persons for Incheon International Airport. The results of a test tower(T/T) has shown good ro-bustness in performance and stability of the proposed controller thereby proving a feasibility of this robust controller-based approach for other HEL problems.
