Research of Metro Illumination Control Based on BP Neural Network PID Algorithm

This paper presents the metro constant illumination controller, which is designed to solve the current problem that the interior illumination in a moving metro fluctuates drastically with the changes of exterior environment. By detecting the real-time interior illumination values and adjusting the lights in a metro with PID controller based on BP neural network, the controller can keep the metro interior illumination values around the preset value.

Imperialist Competitive Algorithm with Trading Mechanism for Optimization

International trade is the exchange of capital, goods, and services across different countries. Trading has been explored by economists to be an important mechanism for maintaining development. In an imperialistic country, trading makes imperialists capture resources from colonies, meanwhile providing technologies or cultures for colonies to develop themselves. Inspired by this economic phenomenon, this paper transplants the trading mechanism to imperialist competitive algorithm (ICA) and proposes an improved ICA with import and export mechanisms (IICA). IICA is designed to alleviate the problem of slow convergence without significantly impairing the parallel competitive feature of ICA. It is characterized by allowing the imperialist to capture useful aspects of colonies to enhance itself, and meanwhile making colonies learn advanced components from their imperialist. In this way, the trading mechanism enables imperialists and colonies to strengthen interactions during them. The performance of IICA is validated on 23 benchmark functions. Its high performance is confirmed by comparing with other ICA variants.

An Improved Artificial Fish Swarm Algorithm and Application

An improved Artificial Fish Swarm Algorithm (AFSA) based on Hooke-Jeeves (HJ) algorithm is proposed and improved AFSA is applied to design lamps of changeable color temperature and high luminous efficacy in this paper. The disadvantage of AFSA stochastic moving without a definite purpose is improved by HJ algorithm, owing to HJ’s great ability of local searching. Accuracy of solution is improved by the adaptive weight. The improved AFSA is verified through an example of how to search for the most luminous efficacy of LED mixing color. The white, red, green and blue LEDs are chosen to design LED lamp samples. LED proportions of 5000K color temperature among those LEDs are optimized by AFSA and new AFSA in the Matlab. The obtained results indicate that improved AFSA is faster and higher accuracy. After LED lamps are tested by integrating sphere, the results show that the difference between the actual value and simulation calculation value is tiny, the new AFSA is effective. The improved AFSA provides a new efficient calculation method of LED proportions. Compared with the traditional manual calculation LED proportions, new method not only saves a significant amount of time, but also achieves higher luminous efficacy for lamps.

Strategy Analysis of an Evolutionary Spectrum Sensing Game

Evolutionary game has been shown to greatly improve the spectrum sensing performance in cognitive radio. However, as selfish users are shortsighted for the long-term profits, they are not willing to collaborate to sense. In this paper, we propose an evolutionary spectrum sensing game to improve the long-term spectrum utilization. The new spectrum sensing model takes advantage of the long-term effect of the future actions on the current actions by using the concept of present value (PV) in repeated game. The collaboration conditions of two strategies, i.e., tit-for-tat and grim strategy are discussed. It is proved that the grim strategy can enhance secondary users’ sensing positivity greatly, and so is the overall spectrum efficiency. Finally these new developments are illustrated in our experiments.

Particle Swarm Optimization Based on Shannon’s Entropy for Odor Source Localization

This paper proposes the particle swarm optimization based on Shannon’s entropy to deal with the problem of odor source localization. First, a measurement model by which the robots can always observe a position is briefly described. When the detection events occur, the position of the odor source lies in the vicinity of the observed position with a higher probability. When the non-detection events occur, the position of the odor source does not lie in the vicinity of the observed position with a higher probability. Second, on the basis of the measurement model, the posteriori probability distribution on the position of the odor source is established where the detection events and non-detection events are taken into account. Third, each robot can understand the search environment by using Shannon’s entropy which can be calculated in terms of the posteriori probability distribution on the position of the odor source. Moreover, each robot should move toward the direction of the entropy reduction. By means of this principle, the particle swarm optimization algorithm is introduced to plan the movement of the robot group. Finally, the effectiveness of the proposed approach is investigated for the problem of odor source localization.

Face Detection and Tracking Based on Adaboost CamShift and Kalman Filter Algorithm

Face detection is an important component of the intelligent video surveillance system. Based on the MeanShift algorithm, we have developed into the CamShift algorithm. Although the traditional Camshift algorithm can track the moving object well, it has to set the tracking object by manually. Meanwhile it fails to track the object easily while the object is occluded and interfered by the same color obstructions. In order to solve the problem, according to the CamShift algorithm features, in this article, I will combine Adaboost, CamShift and Kalman filtering algorithm, which can be relied on to realize face detection and tracking automatically and accurately.

A Quick Method for Matching Object Subspaces Based on Visual Inspection

In visual inspection, the object image subspace should be segmented and matched, then the affine relationship is built between the template image and the sample image. But sometime the illumination is uneven on the surface of object image, it is difficult to obtain accurate position of the object subspace quickly. In this paper, a novel strategy is proposed to adopt discrete radial search paths instead of searching all points in the image. Therefore, the searching time can be reduced. In order to reduce the influence coming from the industrial environment, the paper proposes another method that is local energy level set segmentation, which can locate the object subspace quickly and accurately. The detection upon crown caps is as an example in the paper, then the detection effects and computing time are compared between several detection methods, and the mechanism of inspecting has been analyzed. The industrial applications are also given in the paper.

Research on Visual Environment Evaluation System of Subway Station Space

Based on the energy crisis, LED with its energy-saving and environmental friendly is gradually used to the subway station space lighting. But now, there are little materials about the visual environment evaluation for semiconductor lighting, so that the use of LED lighting lacks theoretical basis and data support. So, in order to promote the LED lighting in subway station space, it’s very important to evaluate the visual environment. Therefore, the core of this paper was to build a theoretical model to evaluate the visual environment of subway station space using Particle Swarm Optimization. Firstly, chose 16 evaluation indexes which were fit for the subway station visual environment evaluation and got the initial judgment matrix through pair wise comparison, after that, established the non-linear consistency correction model. Finally, used Particle Swarm Optimization to calculate the judgment matrix with better consistency and the corresponding index weight, and constructed the theoretical model.

Study on Pattern Recognition of Hand Motion Modes Based on Wavelet Packet and SVM

For pattern recognition-based myoelectric prosthetic hand control, high accuracy of multiple discriminated hand motions is presented in related literature. But in practical applications of myoelectric control, considering cost and simple installation, fewer sensors are expected to be used. A method of pattern recognition based on the wavelet packet decomposition and support vector machine (SVM) is proposed in this paper. Firstly, energy spectrum as feature vectors of the surface electromyography (sEMG) signal is acquired by wavelet packet transform. Then, SVM is used for pattern recognition of hand motion modes. Four channels of sEMG signals obtained from sensors placed on different positions of forearm are used to experiment of hand motion recognition. And different combinations of 2 or 3 signals are tried to recognize hand motion modes. The results show that recognition rate of proposed method can get 92.5% while using 4 sEMG signals to recognize 8 different hand motions, which is 2.5% higher than using traditional method. And when using 3 sEMG signals from specific positions, it can reaches as high as 90%. When using 2sEMG signals only 6 motions can be discriminated with more than 90% recognition rate. Thus, the proposed method can meet the demands of sEMG prosthetic hand control and has high practical value.

Improved Mean-Value Coordinates Algorithm for Image Fusion

Image fusion is an advanced image processing, in which mean-value coordinates (MVC) algorithm based on Poisson image is a fast and effective algorithm. However, the algorithm may have unsatisfactory results if the source image and target image have many variations of color on the image boundary and image details. To solve the problem, this paper proposes two optimization methods, preserving color based on geodesic distance and matching details with modified detail layer. To verify the feasibility of the methods, the improved MVC results are compared with the original MVC results by experiments. The comparison results show that the improved approach can achieve better performance in image fusion.

Affinity Propagation Clustering with Incomplete Data

Incomplete data are often encountered in data sets for clustering problems, and inappropriate treatment of incomplete data will significantly degrade the clustering performances. The Affinity Propagation (AP) algorithm is an effective algorithm for clustering analysis, but it is not directly applicable to the case of incomplete data. In view of the prevalence of missing data and the uncertainty of missing attributes, we put forward improved AP clustering for solving incomplete data problems. Three strategies(WDS, PDS and IPDS) are given, which involve modified versions of the AP algorithm. Clustering performances at different missing rates are discussed, and all approaches are tested on several UCI data sets with randomly missing data.

Discrete Chaotic Synchronization and Its Application in Image Encryption

Based on the synchronization principle of three-dimensional discrete Henon chaos, this paper presents a new image encryption algorithm. A set of keys are generated by chaotic iteration from the sending part. Then the image can be encrypted. Via the same keys generated by chaotic synchronization, the receiving part can get decrypted image by inverse transformation. From the view of cryptology, high dimensional chaos in this paper is more complex than the general chaos, it is difficult to predict; and this algorithm can not only substitute the pixel values, but also scramble the pixel locations at the same time, but in most cases some algorithms can only encrypt the image in a way. As a supplement to the encryption process, this algorithm introduces the technology of chaotic synchronization and bits scrambling, increases the difficulty of cracking, and enhances the algorithm security. Simulation results illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed method.

A Fast Colorization Algorithm for Infrared Video

Color night-vision technology increases the representation ability of monochrome night-vision imagery by adding color to it, making observers’ understanding easier. Usually the color night-vision methods require the infrared and the low-light-level images at the same time, which hinders their application in the environment where totally without light or covered by heavy rain and thick fogs. To expand the application area of color night-vision technology, we propose a quickly colorization method based only on single band infrared video, which can provide all weather condition working. This method only requires a few pixels to be manually set with chrome values, and then the entire frame as well as the following frame sequence is automatically colorized. Experiments show that the colorization results are satisfactory and the algorithm is running fast.

Network-Based Stabilization of Linear Systems via Static Output Feedback

This paper is concerned with the problem of static output feedback control for networked systems with a logic zero-order-hold (ZOH). First, the networked closed-loop system is modeled as a discrete-time linear system with a time-varying delay, whose upper bound can be regarded as not only the admissible maximum delays induced by the network but also the admissible maximum number of packet dropouts between any two consecutive updating instants of ZOH. Then, in order to obtain a larger upper bound of the time-varying delay, a generalized finite-sum inequality is introduced, based on which, a less conservative stability condition is derived by incorporating with convex combination technique. By using the cone complementary linearization approach, the desired output feedback controllers can be designed by solving a nonlinear minimization problem subject to a set of linear matrix inequalities. Finally, some examples are given to show the effectiveness of the proposed method.

A Systematic Fire Detection Approach Based on Sparse Least-Squares SVMs

In this paper, a systematic approach adopting sparse least-squares SVMs (LS-SVMs) is proposed to automatically detect fire using vision-based systems with fast speed and good performance. Within this framework, the features are first extracted from input images using wavelet analysis. The LS-SVM is then trained on the obtained dataset with global support vectors (GSVs) selected by a fast subset selection method, in the end of which the classifier parameters can be directly calculated rather than updated during the training process, leading to a significant saving of computing time. This sparse classifier only depends on the GSVs rather than all the patterns, which helps to reduce the complexity of the classifier and improve the generalization performance. Detection results on real fire images show the effectiveness and efficiency of the proposed approach.

Pitch Angle Control for Improving the Low Voltage Ride-Through Based on DFIG

Pitch angle control for wind generation is one of the most important segments in wind turbine. Wind turbine can capture the max wind energy which is called Maximum Power Point Tracking through regulating the pitch angle and then the output power of wind turbine is the best. On the base of it, one new method of pitch angle is put forward in this paper. When the grid was failure, we can reduce the output power through regulating the pitch angle in order to improve the performance of LVRT of the wind turbine. When the grid voltage is under the sudden dip, the rotor speed can be limited to reduce the engine and the sudden disconnection of wind turbine and grid can be confined. The pitch angle control is described in this paper in a short time when the emergency power supply is discussed so that we can keep the coordination between the wind turbine and the grid.

A sufficient condition is obtained in which the estimator error dynamics is exponential asymptotically stable, and a state estimator of considered complex networks can be achieved by solving some linear matrix inequalities. Finally, a numerical example is provided to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed method.

Integrated Iterative Learning Control Strategy for Batch Processes

An integrated iterative learning control strategy based on time-varying perturbation models for batch processes is proposed in this paper. A linear perturbation model is firstly obtained in order to control the perturbation variables rather than the actual process variables themselves. Next, an integrated control strategy which combines ILC with real-time feedback control is used to control the perturbation model. It leads to superior tracking performance and better robustness against disturbance and uncertainty. Lastly, the effectiveness of the proposed method is verified by examples.

Almost Sure Consensus of Multi-agent Systems over Deterministic Switching Agent Dynamics and Stochastic Topology Jumps

In this paper, consensus of multi-agent systems under both determinstic switching agent dynamics and stochastic topology jumps is investigated. The analysis relies on the fact that these two switching signals are independent. First, a necessary and sufficient condition for achieving a consensus under time-invariant agent dynamics and fixed communication topology is presented. Based on this result, the almost sure consensus condition under deterministic switching agent dynamics and stochastic topology jumps is investigated. It is shown that almost sure consensus can be reached if determinstic switching signal satisfies minimum average dwell time constraint.

An Online Recursive Identification Method over Networks with Random Packet Losses

Under the network environment, data packet losses bring an undesirable effect on parameter identification. To solve this problem, an online recursive identification method over networks with random packet losses is proposed. In this algorithm, the Bernoulli processes is firstly employed to describe the character of data packet losses. Considering random packet losses, an improved recursive least squares (RLS) algorithm is then presented by using Givens transformation, where the intermediate matrix can be updated recursively. Simulation results show that the proposed algorithm is able to significantly enhance the accuracy of parameter estimation, and the estimated variance becomes smaller as the number of iterations increases.

A Novel Adaptive Event-Triggered Communication Scheme for Networked Control Systems with Nonlinearities

This paper presents a novel adaptive event-triggered communication scheme for networked control systems (NCSs) with nonlinearities. Firstly, a novel adaptive event-triggered communication scheme for NCSs with nonlinearities is proposed, which can adaptively adjust the event-triggered communication threshold with respect to dynamic error to save the limited communication resource while ensuring the desired control performance. Secondly, a model of the considered system is built under consideration of the network-induced delay, adaptive event-triggered communication scheme and nonlinearities in a unified framework. Then, sufficient stability and stabilization criteria are obtained to judge the mean-square sense asymptotically stable for the studied system. Finally, two examples illustrate the effectiveness of the developed method.

Analytical Model for Epidemic Information Dissemination in Mobile Social Networks with a Novel Selfishness Division

With the prosperity of smartphone markets, mobile social networks (MSNs) attract much attention. In MSNs, information can be shared among users through their opportunistic contacts. The information forwarding mode needs mobile users to work in a cooperative and altruistic way. However, in the real world, most of users are not willing to forward information because of their selfishness. In this paper, we firstly divide selfishness into two new types: weak selfishness and extreme selfishness. Then we develop an analytical model to evaluate the influence of selfish behavior on the information dissemination process in the MSNs. Numerical results demonstrate weak selfishness and extreme selfishness hinder information dissemination.

Distributed Collaborative Control Based on Adaptive Chaos Mutation PSO with WSAN

In large scale wireless sensor and actuator network (WSAN), unreliable wireless and multihop communications make challenges in designing centralized control due to severe packet dropout and latency. To this end, distributed collaborative control (DCC) scheme based on adaptive chaos mutation particle swarm optimization (ACMPSO) is proposed. In this scheme, control task is carried out collaboratively based on hierarchical clustering using only local information. Moreover, DCC is formulated as an optimization problem, and chaos mutation is introduced to improve the optimal performance of PSO. Simulation shows that the improved PSO has better convergence property, and the proposed scheme works well to obtain control objective.

Design for MIMO Networked Control Systems Based on Multi-threshold Dead Band Scheduling

The control and scheduling co-design of MIMO networked control system are studied in this paper. Considering the MIMO networked control system with multiple sensor nodes, the deadband scheduling strategy with multi-threshold is employed, then the transmit character of the sensor node’s data packets is analyzed. To compensate the effect of the deadband and network-induced delay, an observer is employed, and the closed loop system with the observer and dynamic feed back controller is modeled as a discrete time linear system with uncertainty. Then by the Lyapunov function and LMIs method, the sufficient condition for asymptotic stability is presented, together with the design method for the dynamic feedback controller and observer. Finally, a numerical example is given to validate the method.

Adaptive Distributed Event-Triggered Collaborative Control with WSAN

In large scale wireless sensor and actuator network (WSAN), severe packet dropout and latency make challenges in designing centralized control scheme. Moreover, if system runs stably with little fluctuation of states, period sampling always leads to waste of energy and communication resources. To this end, adaptive distributed event-triggered collaborative control scheme is proposed. In this scheme, distributed event-triggered (DET) mechanism is replaced by adaptive DET mechanism with variable triggering threshold in order to reduce updates of controller law further. Based on local information, distributed collaborative control (DCC) is carried out and formulated as optimization problem. And an improved particle swarm optimization (PSO) with linearly decreasing inertia weight is used to make a good tradeoff between global and local search ability. Simulation shows that, comparing with DET scheme, while guaranteeing required closed-loop performance, ADET scheme needs fewer executions of control task.

Synthesis of Multi-robot Formation Manoeuvre and Collision Avoidance

This paper presents the synthesis of a multi-robot formation manoeuvre and collision avoidance. Turning-compliant waypoints are first achieved to support the multi-robot formation manoeuvre. The formation-based collision avoidance is then presented to translate the collision avoidance problem into the formation stability problem. The extension-decomposition-aggregation scheme is next employed to solve both the formation control problem and the collision avoidance problem during the multi-robot formation manoeuvre. Simulation study finally shows that the formation control and the collision avoidance can be simultaneously solved if the stability of the expanded formation including unidentified objects can be satisfied.

Human-UAV Coordinated Flight Path Planning of UAV Low-Altitude Penetration on Pop-Up Threats

Human-UAV coordinated flight path planning of UAV low-altitude penetration on pop-up threats is a key technology achieving manned and unmanned aerial vehicles cooperative combat and is proposed in this paper. In the most dangerous environment, human’s wisdom, experience and synthetic judgments can make up for the lack of intelligence algorithm. By using variable length gene encoding based on angle for the flight paths planning, and combining artificial auxiliary decision with novel intelligence algorithm, it makes the best possible use of the human brain to guide solution procedures of the flight path planning on pop-up threats. A lot of simulation studies show that the on-line three-dimensional flight paths by this technology can meet the requirements of UAV low-altitude penetration, efficient implementation of threat avoidance, terrain avoidance and terrain following. This method has a certain practicality.

Design of Embedded Redundant Gateway Based on Improved TCP Congestion Algorithm

In wireless sensor networks, gateway is a hub in data transmission between wireless nodes and Personal Computer (PC). Once the gateway fails, the entire network will paralyze. To ensure the stability of the network, a methodology for the design of redundant gateway based on improved Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) congestion algorithm is proposed in this paper. In this methodology, two gateways physically connected by Ethernet are logically divided into a primary one and a secondary one. Secondary gateway is the backup of the primary gateway. The paper gives an improve method of congestion algorithm, which is applied in this scheme. It can better satisfy the high demands of real-time communication in the embedded system when compares with the traditional TCP congestion algorithm. Experiment shows the effectiveness of improved TCP congestion algorithm, when the primary gateway fails. Secondary gateway can rapidly replace the primary gateway and it ensures a better reliability of the network.
