TL;DR: Through simulation in Matlab by selecting appropriate fuzzy rules are designed to tune the parameters Kp, Ki and Kd of the PID controller, the performance of the hydraulic system has improved significantly compare to conventional PID controller.
Abstract: In this paper, Self Tuning Fuzzy PID controller is developed to improve the performance of the electro-hydraulic actuator. The controller is designed based on the mathematical model of the system which is estimated by using System Identification technique. The model is performed in a linear discrete model to obtain a discrete transfer function for the system. Model estimation procedures are done by using System Identification Toolbox in Matlab. Data for model estimation is taken from experimental works. Fuzzy logic is used to tune each parameter of PID controller. Through simulation in Matlab by selecting appropriate fuzzy rules are designed to tune the parameters Kp, Ki, and Kd of the PID controller, the performance of the hydraulic system has improved significantly compare to conventional PID controller.
TL;DR: This work proposes a new design of a 3D printed hand exoskeleton for the stroke rehabilitation based on the EMG signals measured from the muscles responsible for the hand motion, and shows a good recovery of the motor functions and consequently the developed system efficiency.
Abstract: The development of dynamic rehabilitation devices can be evaluated as a research fastgrowing field. Indeed, robot-assisted therapy is an advanced new technology mainly in stroke rehabilitation. Although patients benefit from this enormous development of technology, including the presence of rehabilitation robots, the therapeutic field still suffering a lack in hand robotic rehabilitation devices. In this context, this work proposes a new design of a 3D printed hand exoskeleton for the stroke rehabilitation. Based on the EMG signals measured from the muscles responsible for the hand motion, the designed mechatronic system detects the intention of hand opening or hand closing from the stroked subject. Based on an embedded controller and five servomotors, the low cost robotic system is able to drive in real time three degrees of freedom (DOFs) for each finger. The real tests with stroked subjects showed that the designed hand exoskeleton architecture has a positive effect on the motion finger range and mainly in the hand ability to perform some simple tasks. The case studies showed a good recovery of the motor functions and consequently the developed system efficiency.
TL;DR: Based on the information summarized from 160 researches available, different control targets and flight missions are analysed and classified, and according to it, a general flight mission map is introduced.
Abstract: Quadrotors are Vertical Take-Off and Landing aerial vehicles with many potential applications ranging from mapping to supporting rescue operations. This paper aims to provide an overview on various works carried out on the quadrotor, from the perspective of control and dynamic modelling. Also in this paper, based on the information summarized from 160 researches available, different control targets and flight missions are analysed and classified, and according to it, a general flight mission map is introduced. In addition, history of advances in development of quadrotors and set-ups proposed when performing experimental researches on quadrotors is presented.
TL;DR: An extensive review for the state-of-the- art trends and technologies of fall detection and prevention systems assisting the elderly people and their caregivers and suggestions for future research directions are presented.
Abstract: It is of little surprise that falling is often accepted as a natural part of the aging process. In fact, it is the impact rather than the occurrence of falls in the elderly, which is of most concern. Aging people are typically frailer, more unsteady, and have slower reactions, thus are more likely to fall and be injured than younger individuals. Typically, research and industry presented various practical solutions for assisting the elderly and their caregivers against falls via detecting falls and triggering notification alarms calling for help as soon as falls occur in order to diminish fall consequences. Furthermore, fall likelihood prediction systems have been emerged lately based on the manipulation of the medical and behavioral history of elderly patients in order to predict the possibility of falls occurrence. Accordingly, response from caregivers may be triggered prior to most fall occurrences and accordingly prevent falls from taking place. This paper presents an extensive review for the state-of-the-
