Chapter 1. Robust Finite-Time Stabilization of Fractional-Order Extended Nonholonomic Chained Form Systems

We discuss the robust, finite-time stabilization of fractional-order extended nonholonomic chained form systems for the first time in this article. By applying sliding mode variable structure theory and stability theorem of finite-time control, the three-step switching control scheme is proposed to deal with the presence of system uncertainties and external disturbance, so that the closed-loop system is finite time stable at the origin equilibrium point within any given settling time. Finally, simulation results show the effectiveness of the presented controller.

Chapter 2. Performance of Microstrip Patch Antennas Embedded in Electromagnetic Band-Gap Structure

Electromagnetic band-gap structures are widely used in antenna and microwave element designs due to their unique electromagnetic features which are shown in two aspects: forbidden band gap and in-phase reflection. In this paper, three different antennas are designed and simulated by Ansoft HFSS to know the use of the EBG structure in microstrip antenna engineering. Radiation characteristics such as gain, radiation patterns and s-parameters of these microstrip antennas are performed. The simulated results verify that the gain has been increased noticeably, the radiation pattern has been improved and the sidelobe and backlobe levels have been reduced by using the mushroom-like EBG structures. Especially, the microstrip antenna over the EBG structures not only shows the best electromagnetic characteristics but also maintains its small dimensions.

Chapter 6. Robust Visual Tracking Via Part-Based Template Matching with Low-Rank Regulation

This paper presents a simple yet effective visual tracking method to attack the challenge when the target object undergoes partial or even full occlusion. First, a fixed number of image patches are sampled as the template set around current object location. In the detection stage, candidate image patches are sampled as the candidate set around the object location in the previous frame. Second, both the template set and candidate set patches are divided into sub-regions and features can be efficiently extracted via random projections. The confidence score for a specific candidate patch is computed through compressive features’ low-rank regulation with the template set patches. The lowest confidence score in the current frame indicates the new object location. The encouraging experimental results show that our proposed method outperforms several state-of-the-art algorithms, especially when the target object suffers partial or even full occlusion.

Chapter 8. Image Super-Resolution Based on MCA and Dictionary Learning

Image super-resolution focuses on achieving the high-resolution version of single or multiple low-resolution images. In this paper, a novel super-resolution approach based on morphological component analysis (MCA) and dictionary learning is proposed in this paper. The approach can recover each hierarchical structure well for the reconstructed image. It is integrated mainly by the dictionary learning step and high-resolution image reconstruction step. In the first step, the high-resolution and low-resolution dictionary pairs are trained based on MCA and sparse representation. In the second step, the high-resolution image is reconstructed by the fusion between the high-resolution cartoon part and texture part. The cartoon is acquired by MCA from the interpolated source image. The texture is recovered by the dictionary pairs. Experiments show that the desired super-resolution results can be achieved by the approach based on MCA and dictionary learning.

To solve the problem that it is difficult to determine the initial location of the fruit fly in Fruit Fly Optimization Algorithm (FOA), an improved FOA, Adaptive Fruit Fly Optimization Algorithm (AFOA), is proposed in this paper.

Chapter 11. Mirror Image-Based Robust Minimum Squared Error Algorithm for Face Recognition

To address the problems that the minimum squared error (MSE) algorithm is short of sufficient robustness and there are often not enough training samples for face recognition (FR), a mirror image-based robust MSE algorithm which uses mirror face as new training samples is proposed. The solution vector of MSE classification model needs to transform both original training samples and its mirror images into its class labels. Owing to mirror image reflect the change of pose and expression of original face images, the solution of classification model has some robustness. In addition, two classifier schemes are proposed and the second classifier scheme outperforms the first classifier scheme computationally. The experimental results on FERET, Extended YaleB and ORL databases indicate that the proposed approach achieves better robustness on images whose pose and expression are changed than the traditional MSE algorithm.

Chapter 27. Analysis of Quantization Noise Spectrum in Signal Reconstruction

Quantization is an essential but often ignored part of the realization of compressive sampling (CS), and the analysis of quantization noise arise from CS is incomplete and not sufficient until now. The quantization noise is generated from quantizing CS values by a uniform quantizer under ideal and noise conditions. And also, the auto correlation function and power spectrum have been derived. It is concluded that the quantization noise is always uncorrelated with the input signals, the quantization noise is white and the spectrum is white noise spectrum. On this basis, we analyze the reconstruction error introduced by quantization noise quantitatively and give the upper and lower bounds of reconstruction error. Simulation results validate the validity of the analysis for further.

Chapter 39. Coordinated Control for Multi-WTGs Wind-Diesel Hybrid Power System Based on Disturbance Observer

Wind diesel hybrid system is an important new energy supply mode, but the output power of wind turbine generator (WTG) is fluctuated depending on weather conditions. Especially, the wind-diesel hybrid system with multiple WTGs for remote areas and islands operation, it will inevitably lead to the fluctuated output power to produce the large frequency deviation. So it’s crucial to coordinate the WTGs for providing high quality of electricity. Based on the designed disturbance observer, the coordination control strategy for the multi-WTGs wind-diesel hybrid system is proposed. The load variation is allocated to the WTGs output power reference by using the observer. Here, the constructed controller is compared with the traditional method for every WTG system with only PID control. The simulation results show that of frequency deviations are reduced and output power of every WTGs are controlled effectively.

Chapter 41. Autonomous Navigation Based on Sequential Images for Planetary Landing

A new autonomous navigation scheme for planetary landing is presented. The navigation system contains an inertial measurement unit (IMU) and a stereo camera which can measure unit directional vectors and range information from the camera to detected landmarks. The lander’s motion is estimated by a algorithm known as vision-aided inertial navigation (VAIN). The algorithm uses the unit directional vectors and range measurements of features tracked in two sequential images and the lander’s corresponding poses derived from the IMU and it does not require any a priori terrain information. An augmented implicit extended Kalman filter (IEKF) tightly integrates measurements from the stereo camera and the IMU to produce an accurate estimation of the lander’s pose and velocity and to correct the IMU constant biases. The results of a numerical simulation show that the proposed VAIN method can vastly improve the navigation accuracy of the INS and satisfy the requirements of future planetary exploration missions.

For unidirectional communication topology of multi-agent systems, this paper studies its strong structural controllability. When the topology of agents is a pabud graph, we prove that the multi-agent systems can be strongly structurally controllable by selecting only one agent as leader.

A method to select leaders is presented to ensure the strong structural controllability of multi-agent systems. Finally, the effectiveness of the proposed method is verified with two examples.

Chapter 46. Neural Network Observer Based Optimal Tracking Control for Multi-motor Servomechanism with Backlash

In this paper, a new neural network observer based optimal tracking control is presented to attenuate the effect of backlash and other uncertainty for the position tracking of multi-motor servomechanism (MMS). By adopting a continuously differentiable function instead of the non-differential dead-zone model of the backlash, the state space representation of MMS is set up by using a linear part of the differentiable function. Based on the state space representation, the optimal neural network (NN) observer is used to estimate the uncertainties and unmeasured states, which combines with the optimal state feedback to synthesis the actual control law. Finally, Lyapunov theory is utilized to certify that the tracking error, the observed error and neural network weights are all semi-globally uniformly ultimately bounded (SGUUB). Simulation results validate the effectiveness of this method.

The applications of fractal have been involved in a wide range of areas. As a fractal brunch—fractional Brownian motion (fBm) has also been used and applied in numerous physical sciences. The fBm technique overcome the traditional non-memory random walk-Brownian motion, it could be used on modelling particle tracking dispersion in ocean surface. The technique gives more accurate simulation on tracking particle diffusion and dispersion. Here we use a developed fBm model (FBMINC) as a diffusion process, simulate an idealized coastal bay surface trajectories and particle cloud dispersions using fBm particle tracking techniques. Compared to the traditional Brownian motion particle tracking model, the newly developed fBm particle tracking model produces patterns more close to the reality. Due to its flexibility, the fBm particle tracking model can be widely used in pollutant dispersion on difference size of water bodies.
