    System Characteristics and Contextual Constraints for Future Fighter Decision Support2016Ingår i: International Journal of Information System Modeling and Design, ISSN 1947-8186, E-ISSN 1947-8194, Vol. 7, nr 1, s. 1-17Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Research on decision support systems for fighter aircraft has to regard future manned and unmanned cooperating aircraft. This paper highlights system characteristics and contextual constraints to guide research as well as system development. Long term trends have been identified for the domain that has to be coped with, including the transformation of the fighter pilot from pilot to tactical decision maker. Automation strategies have to be developed to support manned and unmanned aircraft in a joint cognitive system. For instance, for intelligent fighter pilot support, for distributed unmanned and manned decision making, function allocation has to be concerned. For function allocation it is important not only to regard which agent is best at performing a task but also to regard the risk/cost of performing a task in this kind of potentially hazardous context.

    Numerical evaluation of cutting strategies for thin-walled parts2024Ingår i: Scientific Reports, E-ISSN 2045-2322, Vol. 14, nr 1, artikel-id 1459Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Static form errors due to in-process deflections is a major concern in flank milling of thin-walled parts. To increase both productivity and part geometric accuracy, there is a need to predict and control these form errors. In this work, a modelling framework for prediction of the cutting force-induced form errors, or thickness errors, during flank milling of a thin-walled workpiece is proposed. The modelled workpiece geometry is continuously updated to account for material removal and the reduced stiffness matrix is calculated for nodes in the engagement zone. The proposed modelling framework is able to predict the resulting thickness errors for a thin-walled plate which is cut on both sides. Several cutting strategies and cut patterns using constant z-level finishing are studied. The modelling framework is used to investigate the effect of different cut patterns, machining allowance, cutting tools and cutting parameters on the resulting thickness errors. The framework is experimentally validated for various cutting sequences and cutting parameters. The predicted thickness errors closely correspond to the experimental results. It is shown from numerical evaluations that the selection of an appropriate cut pattern is crucial in order to reduce the thickness error. Furthermore, it is shown that an increased machining allowance gives a decreased thickness error for thin-walled plates.

    Road-traffic accident prediction model: Predicting the Number of Casualties2021Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 20 poäng / 30 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    Efficient and effective road traffic prediction and management techniques are crucial in intelligent transportation systems. It can positively influence road advancement, safety enhancement, regulation formulation, and route planning to save living things in advance from road traffic accidents. This thesis considers road safety by predicting the number of casualties if an accident occurs using multiple traffic accident attributes. It helps individuals (drivers) or traffic offices to adjust and control their contributions for the occurrence of an accident before emerging it. Three candidate algorithms from different regression fit patterns are proposed and evaluated to conduct the thesis: the bagging, linear, and non-linear fitting patterns. The gradient boosting machines (GBoost) from the bagging, Linearsupport vector regression (LinearSVR) from the linear, and extreme learning machines (ELM) also from the non-linear side are the selected algorithms. RMSE and MAE performance evaluation metrics are applied to evaluate the models. The GBoost achieved a better performance than the other two with a low error rate and minimum prediction interval value for 95% prediction interval. A SHAP (SHapley Additive exPlanations) interpretation technique is applied to interpret each model at the global interpretation level using SHAP’s beeswarm plots. Finally, suggestions for future improvements are presented via the dataset and hyperparameter tuning.

    Programming and Image Processing in a Compact Production Cell2012Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 20 poäng / 30 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    In recent years, control system in the automation industries has become more and more useful, covering a wide range of fields, for example, industrial instrumentation, control and monitoring systems. Vision systems are used nowadays to improve products quality control, saving costs, time, and obtaining a better accuracy than a human operator in the manufacturing process of companies. Combining a vision system with a suitable automated system allow companies to cover a wide range of products and rapid production. All these factors are considered in this project.

    The aim of this project is to upgrade the functionality of a Nokia-Cell, which was used in a quality control process for the back shells of Nokia cell phones. The project includes design, upgrade and implementation of a new system in order to make the cell work properly. The Nokia-Cell is composed of the following basic modules: vision and image recognition system, automation system devices (PC and PLC, robot), and other mechatronics devices. The new system will consist of a new camera, due to the poor connectivity and quality of the old camera. For the same reason, a new PC will replace two older ones for communication and vision recognition. The new system will also include a new PLC of Beckhoff to replace the aging one of Omron so as to facilitate the connections using the same language. In addition, IEC-61499 Function Blocks standard is adopted for programming the Nokia-Cell.

    It is expected that the results of this project will contribute to both research and education in the future. In addition, it would be correctly to apply the results to industries in vision-based quality control systems.

    Abstract [en]

    Digitalization is forcing the industry to rethink current practices in all business domains, pushing for a digital transformation of business and operations at a high rate and, thus, paving the way for new business models and making others redundant. For small and medium-sized companies (SME), in particular, it is an enormous challenge to keep up with the pace of technological development. Several initiatives have argued the industry’s need for continuous digitalization, innovation, transformation ability, and future skills and competencies development. However, the advancement of the Swedish industry in this area has been uneven, where larger organizations have begun their digital transformation journey to some extent, but SMEs risk falling behind. In addition to the technological transformation, the challenges regarding the industries’ skills supply need to be solved, where a workforce with the right competencies, knowledge, and skill sets are equally, if not more, important for remaining competitive. One of the key elements to face these challenges in the companies will be to recruit knowledgeable employees or re-skill the existing ones. Efficient access to relevant knowledge and skills is still a major concern for companies that will surely affect their competitiveness for a long time to come. This paper elaborates on the opportunities and challenges that Swedish universities face in the context of lifelong learning and education for industry professionals. The paper presents results and experiences gained from a lifelong learning project for industry professionals at the University of Skövde in collaboration with ten industry partners. The results from the project show that in addition to pedagogical methods, current structures and policies within academia need to be further developed to effectively serve industry professionals. The paper also presents a concept of education for industry professionals in the lifelong learning context based on the results and experience gained from the project.

    Digital Twin: Applying emulation for machine reconditioning2018Ingår i: Procedia CIRP, ISSN 2212-8271, E-ISSN 2212-8271, Vol. 72, s. 243-248Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Old machine reconditioning projects extend the life length of machines with reduced investments, however they frequently involve complex challenges. Due to the lack of technical documentation and the fact that the machines are running in production, they can require a reverse engineering phase and extremely short commissioning times. Recently, emulation software has become a key tool to create Digital Twins and carry out virtual commissioning of new manufacturing systems, reducing the commissioning time and increasing its final quality. This paper presents an industrial application study in which an emulation model is used to support a reconditioning project and where the benefits gained in the working process are highlighted.

    Optimizing Cycle Time and Energy Efficiency of a Robotic Cell Using an Emulation Model2018Ingår i: Advances in Manufacturing Technology XXXII: Proceedings of the 16th International Conference on Manufacturing Research, incorporating the 33rd National Conference on Manufacturing Research, September 11–13, 2018, University of Skövde, Sweden / [ed] Peter Thorvald, Keith Case, Amsterdam: IOS Press, 2018, Vol. 8, s. 411-416Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Industrial automated systems are mostly designed and pre-adjusted to always work at their maximum production rate. This leaves room for important energy consumption reductions considering the production rate variations of factories in reality. This article presents a multi-objective optimization application targeting cycle time and energy consumption of a robotic cell. A novel approach is presented where an existing emulation model of a fictitious robotic cell was extended with low-level electrical components modeled and encapsulated as FMUs. The model, commanded by PLC and Robot Control software, was subjected to a multi-objective optimization algorithm in order to find the Pareto front between energy consumption and production rate. The result of the optimization process allows selecting the most efficient energy consumption for the robotic cell in order to achieve the required cycle.

    A Study of Discrete Event Simulation Project Data and Provenance Information Management in an Automotive Manufacturing Plant2017Ingår i: Proceedings of the 2017 Winter Simulation Conference / [ed] W. K. V. Chan; A. D’Ambrogio; G. Zacharewicz; N. Mustafee; G. Wainer; E. Page, IEEE, 2017, , s. 12s. 4012-4023Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Discrete Event Simulation (DES) project data management is a complex and important engineering activity which impacts on an organization’s efficiency. This efficiency could be decreased by the lack of provenance information or the unreliability of existing information regarding previous simulation projects, all of which complicates the reusability of the existing data. This study presents an analysis of the management of simulation projects and their provenance data, according to the different types of scenarios usually found at a manufacturing plant. A survey based on simulation projects at an automotive manufacturing plant was conducted, in order to categorize the information regarding the studied projects, map the available provenance data and standardize its management. This study also introduces an approach that demonstrates how a structured framework based on the specific data involved in the different types of scenarios could allow an improvement of the management of DES projects.

    DEVELOPMENT OF A MANUFACTURING CELL IN COMPLIANCE WITH IEC 61499: Function Blocks networks implementation in a Gantry Robot system2012Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 20 poäng / 30 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    Standards are, nowadays, a useful and sometimes essential tool, in the world of automated industry. Since the development of the standard IEC 61131-3, automation has made progresses in a consistent manner. This allows an engineer to develop control programs for any type of systems using the language set in the standard. However, this standard was not enough because it did not cover the control over distributed systems. Therefore, it was necessary to establish rules in this field. In order to fill this gap, the new standard IEC 61499 was developed. Its main objective is to describe how to develop, design and implement distributed control systems, using the new concept of function blocks. By the use of the new function blocks, it is possible to control distributed systems in a quick and easy way, adding some advantages such as reusability, portability, and much enhanced maintenance.This project involves the preparation of a manufacturing cell composed of a gantry robot interacting with a CNC machine. The project is developed in two sections; one is focused on the computer programming with function blocks for the gantry robot and HMI, and the other is prepared for the programming of function blocks for the CNC machine and HMI. The communications between PLC, PC, gantry robot and CNC machine are developed using the standard IEC 61499. This document covers the survey and research made for the first section of the project.The new standard IEC 61499 provides the methodologies and the appropriated tools to achieve a good control in distributed systems. The basic tools offered by this standard are the new function blocks which will be the main tool used in this project. Equally important, it is necessary to take into account the different assembly features and the machining features in order to design better function blocks to control the system. An HMI has to be developed in order to obtain a good interface for a worker of this cell.The aim of this project is to investigate how the new standard IEC 61499 works in a real manufacturing cell and how the new function blocks interact in a real distributed system. Moreover, it is important to see how the event flow works, controlling all the sequences required in the manufacturing cell.

    A combinatorial optimization approach for evaluating minimum-zone spatial straightness errors2012Ingår i: Measurement, ISSN 0263-2241, E-ISSN 1873-412X, Vol. 45, nr 5, s. 1170-1179Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents a new and robust approach for the accurate evaluation of minimumzone spatial straightness error from a set of coordinate measurement data points. The algorithm iteratively searches for the specific data points that define the minimum bound of the spatial straightness zone using combinatorial optimization. It is based on the fact that the minimum circumscribed cylinder of a point set, which is equivalent to the minimum spatial straightness zone of the measurement data, will pass through three, four, or five of the data points that constitute the convex hull vertices of the entire data set. Computed results have shown that although the presented approach may lead to increased computational time, it is robust and able to construct the exact minimum circumscribed cylinder for a given point set. The minimum-zone spatial straightness error can thus be evaluated with the best possible accuracy. The advantage of the presented algorithm is demonstrated via comparison with published computed results of existing algorithms.

    Performance analysis of comercial simulation-based optimization packages: OptQuest and Witness Optimizer2011Ingår i: Proceedings of the 2011 Winter Simulation Conference (WSC) / [ed] S. Jain; R. R. Creasey; J. Himmelspach; K. P. White; M. Fu, IEEE, 2011, s. 2358-2368Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The objective of this study is to evaluate and compare two commercial simulation-based optimization packages, OptQuest and Witness Optimizer, to determine their relative performance based on the quality of obtained solutions in a reasonable computational effort. Two well-known benchmark problems, the pull manufacturing system and the inventory system, are used to evaluate and compare the performance of OptQuest and Witness Optimizer. Significant validation efforts are made to ensure that simulation models developed in Arena and Witness are identical. The experimental results indicate that both optimization packages have good performance on the given problems. Both packages found near-global optimal (or satisfactory) solutions in an acceptable computation time.

    Emulation of industrial Fieldbus modules for Virtual Commissioning2019Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 20 poäng / 30 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    The evolution of the industry, known as industry 4.0, has introduced new technologies such as Virtual Commissioning and Industrial Internet of things. Nowadays, virtual models of automated systems are being created in order to be tested while being built in real life, what includes PLC programs, robots, etc. In order to provide a real behaviour emulation, these virtual models should be as similar to reality as possible. Currently, the components communication in a real system is done through Internet with the use of fieldbuses I/O modules. Right now, these modules are not integrated in the virtual model, as the PLC program returns an error due to the hardware not being found. This implies that the PLC project must be modified, and a workaround must be done in order to connect the I/O cards components of the modules. Furthermore, it means that two PLC projects need to be maintained at the same time, one for the real system and another for the virtual system. In this thesis, a research was done to prove if fieldbuses modules could be emulated, helping to improve Virtual Commissioning. The final goal is to allow a PLC project created for a real system to be run again the corresponding virtual model without any change. To achieve this, a driver able to emulate the communication behaviour of an Ethernet/IP fieldbus module is developed and tested against a real PLC program.

    Decision support system for feeding policy selection in production settings: Research proposal2016Rapport (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Competitiveness is highly important in automotive industry. Customers’ satisfaction is decisive and that has turned out in high vehicle customization. Customization implies for example that a vehicle model can include several types of engines; inferring in high engine model variety on the assembly systems. Production lines balancing and ergonomic factors within assembly operations usually trigger unbalances on the logistics resources utilization. A proper feeding policy selection can palliate the impact of the unbalances generated by the assembly operations, improve the performance of the system and reduce cost. Selection among different policies is often done by following qualitative criteria which are influenced by product structure, operational constraints, company-specific practices and tradition. This project consists of the development of a decision support system for feeding policy selection in production settings. This system will automatically select the feeding policy at a single component level and evaluate the impact brought by this decision when interacting with the production setting.

    Designing attack infrastructure for offensive cyberspace operations2020Ingår i: Proceedings of the 19th European Conference on Cyber Warfare and Security: a virtual conference hosted by University of Chester UK 25-26 June 2020 / [ed] Thaddeus Eze, Lee Speakman, Cyril Onwubiko, Reading, UK: Academic Conferences and Publishing International Limited, 2020, s. 473-482Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article addresses the question ‘what considerations should be taken by cyber commands when designing attack infrastructure for offensive operations?’. Nation-states are investing in equipping units tasked to conduct offensive cyberspace operations. Generating ‘deny, degrade, disrupt, destroy or deceive’ effects on adversary targets requires to move from own (‘green’), through neutral (‘grey’), to adversary (‘red’) cyberspace. The movement is supported by attack infrastructure for offensive cyberspace operations. In this paper, we review the professional and scientific literature identifying the requirements for designing an attack infrastructure. Next, we develop and define the concepts for attack infrastructure. Finally, we explain and describe the considerations for designing attack infrastructure. The research question is answered by proposing a framework for designing attack infrastructure. This framework is vital for military and civilian commands designing attack infrastructure for offensive cyberspace operations.

    Multi-Level Vulnerability Modeling of Cyber-Physical Systems2018Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Vulnerability is defined as ”weakness of an asset or control that can be exploited by a threat” according to ISO/IEC 27000:2009, and it is a vital cyber-security issue to protect cyber-physical systems (CPSs) employed in a range of critical infrastructures (CIs). However, how to quantify both individual and system vulnerability are still not clear. In our proposed poster, we suggest a new procedure to evaluate CPS vulnerability. We reveal a vulnerability-tree model to support the evaluation of CPS-wide vulnerability index, driven by a hierarchy of vulnerability-scenarios resulting synchronously or propagated by tandem vulnerabilities throughout CPS architecture, and that could be exploited by threat agents. Multiple vulnerabilities are linked by boolean operations at each level of the tree. Lower-level vulnerabilities in the tree structure can be exploited by threat agents in order to reach parent vulnerabilities with increasing CPS criticality impacts. At the asset-level, we suggest a novel fuzzy-logic based valuation of vulnerability along standard metrics. Both the procedure and fuzzy-based approach are discussed and illustrated through SCADA-based smart power-grid system as a case study in the poster, with our goal to streamline the process of vulnerability computation at both asset and CPS levels.

    Test Case Generation for Flexible Real-Time Control Systems2005Ingår i: 10th IEEE international conference of Emerging Technologies and Factory Automation: ETFA 2005 / [ed] L. LoBello; T. Sauter, IEEE conference proceedings, 2005, s. 723-730Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Temporal correctness is crucial for the dependability of real-time control systems. A problem with testing such systems is the dependency on the execution orders of tasks. Mutation-based testing criteria have been proposed to determine which execution orders need to be exercised to verify that real-time systems are timely. For flexible control systems, timeliness in itself may only be relevant for a subset of tasks, whereas maintained control performance in the presence of worst-case jitter and disturbances is essential. This paper presents an extension to the co-simulator tool TrueTime, to support mutation-based testing of control performance and timeliness. Further, an approach for automatic generation of test cases using genetic algorithms is presented. A conclusion is that testing criteria for timeliness can be used to increase confidence in the dependability of flexible control systems.

    Multi-step estimators and shrinkage effect in time series models2024Ingår i: Computational statistics (Zeitschrift), ISSN 0943-4062, E-ISSN 1613-9658, Vol. 39, nr 3, s. 1203-1239Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Many modern statistical models are used for both insight and prediction when applied to data. When models are used for prediction one should optimise parameters through a prediction error loss function. Estimation methods based on multiple steps ahead forecast errors have been shown to lead to more robust and less biased estimates of parameters. However, a plausible explanation of why this is the case is lacking. In this paper, we provide this explanation, showing that the main benefit of these estimators is in a shrinkage effect, happening in univariate models naturally. However, this can introduce a series of limitations, due to overly aggressive shrinkage. We discuss the predictive likelihoods related to the multistep estimators and demonstrate what their usage implies to time series models. To overcome the limitations of the existing multiple steps estimators, we propose the Geometric Trace Mean Squared Error, demonstrating its advantages. We conduct a simulation experiment showing how the estimators behave with different sample sizes and forecast horizons. Finally, we carry out an empirical evaluation on real data, demonstrating the performance and advantages of the estimators. Given that the underlying process to be modelled is often unknown, we conclude that the shrinkage achieved by the GTMSE is a competitive alternative to conventional ones.

    Hypothesis test of a new line balancing approach with dynamic allocation of assembly operations2013Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 20 poäng / 30 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    Assembly lines are no longer systems designed to produce as much as possible at the lower cost. Nowadays several factors such as mass customization and variation in demand have led the manufacturers to consider the flexibility of the assembly systems as one of the most important facts to take into account when designing an assembly line.

    In this context, this study attempts to test a new paradigm of the workload balance, which is based on a dynamic allocation of the assembly operations. In order to test the hypothesis, a real assembly system of engines has been used as a base model to implement the new approach. The work developed, uses the simulation as a means to carry out the study, which has required the development of several simulation scenarios. The hypothesis has been studied from two different approaches; on one hand a total dynamic allocation of assembly operations, which was expected to cause a wide operational range of the stations. On the other hand, the second approach implements a flow control which aims to reduce the operational range and workload fluctuations.

    The results obtained show a significant improvement of the system performance in comparison with the current assembly line. It has been found that any improvement implemented in the system is directly reflected in the total performance of the line, regardless if the improvement is made in a system constraint. Moreover, the results have proven a better response of the system to changes in the frequency of models production. 

    Finally, based on the results, this study suggests several paths of future work in order to acquire the needed information to implement the hypothesis in the real world context.

    Abstract [en]

    Simulation of sensor systems for mobile robots are described in this paper. By simulation of smart sensor systems, the performance of semi-autonomous vehicles / mobile robots can be enhanced. Smart sensor systems used in the field of mobile robotics can utilise adaptive algorithms. e. g. artificial neural nets, fuzzy logic or hybrid variants of these systems. The development, training and evaluation of adaptive algorithms for sensor systems can be done within a virtual environment in which graphical models are built to simulate an intelligent vehicle, its sensors, and its environment. The virtual sensors are validated by comparing the characteristics of the virtual sensors with those of the real devices.

    Developing of Data Logging System for Flow Test Station in Industrial Laboratory2016Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 20 poäng / 30 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    CEJN is a leading transnational company with long history and professional background providing high-tech quick connect products in global market. The headquarters of the com-pany in Skövde, Sweden, is the birthplace and core location of the entire corporation. In the headquarters, the engineer tests their products at their flow test laboratory. In the laboratory, there are flow test stations for all product ranges. Within them, the most basic are flow test benches for air, water and hydraulic oil products. The flow test benches are aim to test the products under International/Swedish standard conditions to determine the performance.

    This project is aimed in upgrading the test benches by engineering both hardware and soft-ware, to achieve higher level of automation of the data logging system used in the lab. All three test benches were designed and installed following requirements in corresponding in-ternational standards. The principles of testing are similar, but they are not developed from the same era, and the automation level of each test bench differs. As a result, the need of up-grading in the benches is different.

    In the laboratory, the recorded test results are reorganized and processed by a report genera-tor developed on Microsoft Excel. The Excel report generator is used for organize test results, calibrate the deviation of the instruments, calculate the flow coefficient of the product, gener-ate performance diagrams of the products, generate test reports for different purpose of use, and save the test data and results on the server of the company.

    Above all, an upgrade of the data logging system for the three flow test benches was needed. Depending on the conditions of each test bench, the project is implemented and designed the following three parts:

    • A hardware upgrading (flow rate computer) for the air flow test benchA new signal indicating device for replacing the old flow rate computer is purchased from Italy by the company. The new instrument contains filter function to stabilize the flow rate value.

    • A software upgrading (Excel report generator) for all the test benchesVisual Basic for Applications (VBA) programming language is used for developing functions such as data communication, signal decoding and user interface developing in Excel.

    • Develop of an automated data visualizing system for the air flow test benchData communication from the new instrument to a PC through serial port and Mod-bus RTU interface is established. The data visualizing function is compiled in the Ex-cel report generator for the air flow test, realized by VBA programming.

    FastUAV-NET: A multi-UAV detection algorithm for embedded platforms2021Ingår i: Electronics, E-ISSN 2079-9292, Vol. 10, nr 6, s. 1-19, artikel-id 724Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, a real-time deep learning-based framework for detecting and tracking Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) in video streams captured by a fixed-wing UAV is proposed. The proposed framework consists of two steps, namely intra-frame multi-UAV detection and the inter-frame multi-UAV tracking. In the detection step, a new multi-scale UAV detection Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) architecture based on a shallow version of You Only Look Once version 3 (YOLOv3-tiny) widened by Inception blocks is designed to extract local and global features from input video streams. Here, the widened multi-UAV detection network architecture is termed as FastUAV-NET and aims to improve UAV detection accuracy while preserving computing time of one-step deep detection algorithms in the context of UAV-UAV tracking. To detect UAVs, the FastUAV-NET architecture uses five inception units and adopts a feature pyramid network to detect UAVs. To obtain a high frame rate, the proposed method is applied to every nth frame and then the detected UAVs are tracked in intermediate frames using scalable Kernel Correlation Filter algorithm. The results on the generated UAV-UAV dataset illustrate that the proposed framework obtains 0.7916 average precision with 29 FPS performance on Jetson-TX2. The results imply that the widening of CNN network is a much more effective way than increasing the depth of CNN and leading to a good trade-off between accurate detection and real-time performance. The FastUAV-NET model will be publicly available to the research community to further advance multi-UAV-UAV detection algorithms.

    On performance enhancement of parallel kinematic machine2013Ingår i: Journal of Intelligent Manufacturing, ISSN 0956-5515, E-ISSN 1572-8145, Vol. 24, nr 2, s. 267-276Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper proposes a spatial three degrees of freedom (DOF) parallel kinematic machine enhanced by a passive leg and a web-based remote control system. First, the geometric model of the parallel kinematic machine is addressed. In the mechanism, a fourth kinematic link-a passive link connecting the base center to the moving platform center-is introduced. Each of the three parallel limbs is actuated by one prismatic joint, respectively. The additional link has three passive DOF, namely two rotations around x and y axes and one translation along z axis. With the existence of this link, the unwanted motion of the tool (located in the moving platform) is constrained. The fourth link also enhances the global stiffness of the structure and distributes the torque from machining. With the kinematic model, a web-based remote control approach is applied. The concept of the web-based remote manipulation approach is introduced and the principles behind the method are explored in detail. Finally, a remote manipulation is demonstrated to the proposed structure using web-based remote control concept.
