    In this paper, a new approach for behavior based architecture in mobile robot navigation in unknown environments is presented. In this approach, the general actions of a mobile robot are classified into three thoroughly separated tasks. Then, an individual fuzzy controller is designed and implemented for each task (behavior). Finally, a behavior selector is designed to switch between the robot tasks (behavior patterns) and manage all separated fuzzy controllers to navigate a mobile robot in a fully unknown environment. Another case considered in this paper is to test and examine the proposed algorithm in an environment including the static and dynamic (moving) obstacles. The most difficult... 

    A Supervisory Fuzzy Force Control of CNC HEXAGLIDE Robot

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Abedi, Mohsen (Author) ; Alasti, Aria (Supervisor) ; Vossoughi, Gholamreza (Supervisor)
    In this paper, controlling the cutting force of an end-milling process using a supervisory fuzzy controller has been investigated. The proposed control consists of an ordinary fuzzy controller and a fuzzy supervisor. In a machining process, there are several parameters which do not contribute to the force control system directly. Therefore an ordinary fuzzy force controller is suitable when these parameter have only small amount of variations. Since in practice this assumption is not valid, then a supervisory fuzzy controller has been added to the system. The designed fuzzy supervisor, inspects the dynamic behavior of the cutting force, estimates a pre-defined ‘sensitivity’ parameter and...

    Elsevier  2016
    This paper addresses design of an observer-based adaptive fuzzy controller for a class of single-input-single-output (SISO) nonlinear systems with unknown dynamics subject to input nonlinearity and unknown direction. The proposed controller is singularity free. A high-gain observer is designed to estimate the unmeasured states, and the Lipschitz condition for proving boundedness of the estimated states is relaxed. The Nussbaum function is used to handle the unknown virtual control directions and the backstepping technique has been applied for controller design. It is proved that all closed loop signals are semi-globally uniformly ultimately bounded (SGUUB) and the output tracking error...

    , Article Annals of Nuclear Energy ; Volume 30, Issue 1 , 2003 , Pages 63-80 ; 03064549 (ISSN) Boroushaki, M ; Ghofrani, M. B ; Lucas, C ; Yazdanpanah, M. J ; Sharif University of Technology
    In the last decade, the intelligent control community has paid great attention to the topic of intelligent control systems for nuclear plants (core, steam generator). Papers mostly used approximate and simple mathematical SISO (single-input-single-output) model of nuclear plants for testing and/or tuning of the control systems. They also tried to generalize theses models to a real MIMO (multi-input-multi-output) plant, while nuclear plants are typically of complex nonlinear and multivariable nature with high interactions between their state variables and therefore, many of these proposed intelligent control systems are not appropriate for real cases. In this paper, we designed an on-line...

    Designing a fuzzy logic controller for a quadruped robot using human expertise extraction

    , Article 2013 21st Iranian Conference on Electrical Engineering, ICEE 2013 ; 2013 , 14-16 May ; 9781467356343 (ISBN) Zand, R. M ; Shouraki, S. B ; Sharif University of Technology
    Many actions have been taken by researchers to design an appropriate controller for a quadruped robot. These efforts can be divided into two main categories: analytical and intelligent methods. The analytical method is based on the motion equations of the robot which are mostly complicated. These complication leads to difficulty in implementation. In contrast, there exists intelligent method which is based on the learning algorithms. Despite lots of improvements in the controlling of the quadruped robots, their ability of walking is still far less from the four legged animals' capability. Many researchers believe that four legged animals owe this priority to the learning attribute. Therefore... 

    High performance fuzzy-Padé controllers: Introduction and comparison to fuzzy controllers

    , Article Nonlinear Dynamics ; Volume 71, Issue 1-2 , January , 2013 , Pages 141-157 ; 0924090X (ISSN) Abedinnasab, M. H ; Yoon, Y. J ; Saeedi Hosseiny, M. S ; Sharif University of Technology
    In this paper, a new highly convergent, efficient, and fast response control technique entitled as fuzzy-Padé control method is introduced. It provides a simple methodology to exploit the heuristic knowledge in controlling a system. Fuzzy-Padé controllers originate from a unification of heuristic knowledge expressed as the rule base, and Padé approximants. In this method, fuzzy singleton rules are used to generate the rule base. Accordingly, unknown parameters in the Padé approximant are determined using these rules. The fuzzy-Padé controllers possess certain advantages over fuzzy controllers, and they can be applied in situations where fuzzy controllers previously failed. To demonstrate the...
