    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... 

    Intelligent landing of autonomous aerial vehicles using fuzzy logic control

    , Article 2009 IEEE Aerospace Conference, Big Sky, MT, 7 March 2009 through 14 March 2009 ; 2009 ; 1095323X (ISSN); 9781424426225 (ISBN) Saghafi, F ; Pouya, S ; Khansari Zadeh, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    In this paper a fuzzy controller is developed for automatic landing of fixed wing Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). It is assumed that the vehicle has a built in vision system which provides the runway relative position and orientation to be used in the designed tracking system. The stability of the controller was analyzed through vector field diagrams, and the system performance is tested through a complete 6DOF computer simulation. The results show a satisfactory performance of the controller all through the automatic landing phase. ©2009 IEEE

    , Article Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Part C: Journal of Mechanical Engineering Science ; 2020 Abarghooei, A ; Salarieh, H ; Boroushaki, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    SAGE Publications Ltd  2020
    The aim of this article is design, fabricate, and control a conceptual prototype of a flexible wearable robot to increase fingers’ force using a novel cable mechanism. In this robot, force and position are controlled in separate phases by a fuzzy system equipped with emotional learning. A Flexible structure has been chosen for this robot, because flexible gloves are lighter and much more suitable for use in daily tasks compared to rigid structures. Since this system is supposed to be substituted for weak or damaged limb, it should have a behavior similar to the body organs as much as possible. Therefore, a novel mechanism, inspired by the natural movement mechanism of the human hand, has... 

    Control a Double Inverted Pendulum Using Active Learning Method

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Ghomi Rostami, Mohammad (Author) ; Bagheri Shouraki, Saeid (Supervisor)
    There are lots of researches performed to investigate human being learning and try to model it. But, in case of huge complexity of its structure and function, almost none of so-far learning algorithms can model human learning process and, indeed, performance of human brain in real problems is much more than these algorithms. Moreover, in many cases, human is not aware or informed about internal structure or mathematical model of the present system he is working on; a child learning to walk has no information about his neuromuscular system and his brain slowly learns how to convey his little body by choosing the proper timing of muscle contractions. One of the accomplished researches in order... 

    Design and Implementation of Processing Hardware for Active Learning Method

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Mehranzadeh, Mahdi (Author) ; Bagheri Shouraki, Saeed (Supervisor)
    The Active Learning Method is in fact an adaptive recursive algorithm which embodies a Multi Input and a Single Output (MISO) system as in a fuzzy combination of several Single Input systems and Single Output systems (SISO), and by utilizing a fuzzy technique of Ink Drop Spread tries to explore and extract input to output transfer function behavior in the system of a single-input to a single-output. Although in simulation state, the speed of this model is set at a much higher speed in comparison to other presented models, still is slower than the processing speed of human brain. In regards to hardware implementation, also there remain the fundamental implementation challenges through more...

The problem of selecting proper magnetic dipole based on the known desired mechanical torque has been investigated, two different methods for the purpose has been suggested and the performance of the attained fuzzy magnetic attitude controllers has been shown under two different simulated conditions. © 2009 IEEE  

    Sliding mode control with online fuzzy tuning: Application to a robot manipulator

    , Article IEEE International Conference on Mechatronics and Automation, ICMA 2005, Niagara Falls, ON, 29 July 2005 through 1 August 2005 ; 2005 , Pages 1357-1362 ; 0780390458 (ISBN); 9780780390454 (ISBN) Javaheri, H ; Vossoughi, G. R ; Sharif University of Technology
    This paper presents an approach to improve the sliding mode controller performance. Accordingly, a fuzzy controller is designed based on a limited number of rules and independent of the sliding mode controller complexity. To enhance the performance, this controller will continuously optimize the sliding mode controller parameters including hitting control gain, boundary layer thickness, sliding surface slope and intercept. The controller is applied to a two-degree-of-freedom robot and the experimental results are compared with a QFT based and a PID controller. The results demonstrate the significant performance improvement of the proposed controller. © 2005 IEEE  

    Fuzzy control of robot manipulator with a flexible tool

    , Article Journal of Robotic Systems ; Volume 22, Issue 7 , 2005 , Pages 367-382 ; 07412223 (ISSN) Alasty, A ; Sepehri, A ; Sharif University of Technology
    In some tasks, a rigid robot manipulator handles a long, slender, and flexible tool, which usually has not been equipped with vibration measuring devices. This situation makes a different tool tip position control problem. In this paper, a new method will be presented for simultaneous tip position and vibration suppression control of a flexible tool on a rigid-link 3-DOF robot. This approach uses fuzzy logic rule-based controllers without using any sensors and actuators on the tool or a priori knowledge about the tool. Numerical simulation of robot and tool set has been accomplished and results support the fact that designed fuzzy controllers perform remarkably well in reducing vibrations...

    Advent of passenger cars has caused people to use them for more efficiency in their performance and wasting less time. Problems, however, still exist in them. For instance, since people travel with cars, their human bodies undergo in fatigue, restlessness, and sometimes health problems. Human body reaction under external vibration depends on the amplitude, frequency, and acceleration of the applied external excitation. These limitations which are usually announced by the bureau of standards imply the necessity of control of amplitude, vibration, frequency, and acceleration received by human body due to cars passing humps and bumps. In this paper, a quarter car model with active suspension... 

    Adaptive critic-based neuro-fuzzy controller in multi-agents: Distributed behavioral control and path tracking

    , Article Neurocomputing ; Volume 88 , July , 2012 , Pages 24-35 ; 09252312 (ISSN) Vatankhah, R ; Etemadi, S ; Alasty, A ; Vossoughi, G ; Sharif University of Technology
    In this paper, we follow two control tasks in a leader following frame with undirected network and local communications. As the first goal, distributed behavioral imitation, which is necessary to fit agents with complicated motion equations in kinematic frames, is discussed. Providing real agents with behavioral controller makes them capable to act as a kinematic particle. The second goal is to design an active leading strategy for the LA to move the group on a predefined path. Both problems can be mathematically modeled in an affine form, which is the reason behind using a unique adaptive controller to solve them. The controller is based on a neuro-fuzzy structure with critic-based leaning...

    Controlling nonlinear systems have always been a challenging problem. Complexity is mostly the result of nonlinear systems behavior dependence on initial conditions and input. Linearization techniques are such kinds of nonlinear systems analysis tools, which can give suitable results in neighborhood of equilibrium points. In addition, phase portraits are very efficient for visualizing the behavior of system in equilibrium points' neighborhood. In this paper, designing a controller for a low order dynamic system with multiple equilibrium points in presence of a sinusoidal disturbance with unknown amplitude and unknown bounded frequency is investigated. The proposed controller is based on a...

    Controlling four legged robots is a complex challenge. The previous works in this field can be divided into two main categories, Analytic method and intelligence method. The analytic method is based on extracting the motion equations of the robot, but in most cases these equations are so complicated, and their implementation is difficult. Another method is intelligence method, which is based on learning algorithms. Despite the improvements in walking robots field, still their walking quality is far from human and animal walking. Researchers believe that this advantage is the result of the learning ability in animals and human. Therefore in this paper the human learning ability is used to...

    The huge capability of high resolution satellite imageries (HRSI), that includes spatial, spectral, temporal and radiometric resolutions as well as stereoscopic vision introduces them as a powerful new source for the Photogrammetric,Remote Sensing and GIS communities. High resolution data increases the need for higher accuracy of data modeling.The satellite orbit, position, attitude angles and interior orientation parameters have to be adjusted in the geometrical model to achieve optimal accuracy with the use of a minimum number of Ground Control Points (GCPs). In order to obtain high resolution and definition imaging for many applications including surveillance, target tracking, and... 

    Design of an Intelligent Aerodynamic Control System for Spinning Flight Vehicles

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Mohammadkarimi, Hamed (Author) ; Nobahari, Hadi (Supervisor)
    Spinning vehicles are a large category of aerospace vehicles including shoulder launched missiles, intelligent anti-armor projectiles, guided rockets and some of re-entry vehicles, anti tank missiles and satellites. This thesis presents the problems of guidance and control in a spinning vehicle with a single plane of On-Off control surface. The missile uses this single surface to control both yaw and pitch channels. The actuator used in this missile is a discrete On-Off type which makes the missile behavior nonlinear. Using describing function technique, a linear model of the spinning missile dynamics in the presence of an On-Off actuator is derived and a classic controller is designed... 

    Fuzzy-Based Routing in Irregular Mesh Noc

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Rezaei Mayahi Nejad, Mehdi (Author) ; Sarbazi Azad, Hamid (Supervisor)
    In past decades, we have seen the rise of integration density in chips making it possible to design a whole system on a single chip. The previously designed interconnection architectures for multiprocessors systems cannot directly be applied in on-chip systems (especially when the number of processor elements increases) since they require a different type of a cost-performance trade-off. This is why the interconnection networks of systems-on-chip (SoC) are such a problem. Network-on-chip (NoC) was being proposed as a scalable and reusable communication platform for SoCs, which makes use of the network model to develop efficient on-chip communication infrastructures. The NoC has a layered and... 

    A Novel Moving Magnetic Levitation Device for 3D Manipulation of Small Objects

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Molavian Jazi, Mehdi (Author) ; Vossoughi, Gholamreza (Supervisor)
    Magnetic levitation is an appropriate solution for noncontact 3D manipulation. Workspace of the previously proposed maglev systems is confined to a relatively small cube, which severely limits the application of this technology. In addition, most of the previously given mechanisms require the design and application of a subsystem in order to unify their magnetic field. In this paper, a moving magnet is proposed which results in a horizontally extendable workspace; moreover, the field unifying section is not needed since one electromagnet only is used. Further, details of the mechanism and finite element based design procedure of the magnet are presented. Dynamic equations of the system... 

    Hydrodynamics Modeling and Self Orginizing Control of Marine Vehicles

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Taghi, Amir Hossein (Author) ; Sayyadi, Hassan (Supervisor)
    Dynamic positioning system is a controller system used to maintain the position and heading of a vessel with no use of anchors, jack ups but only using the propellers installed on the vessel. A vessel has six degrees of freedom, including three rotations and three transfer. In dynamic positioning systems, the vessel is controlled only on the horizontal plane such that its position and heading are controlled according to predetermined values. To achieve this, position and heading of the vessel is determined and the controller system computes the direction and required power of each propeller. Preliminary systems utilized PID controllers. As the control science has advanced, model based... 

    Designing of Gyrover and Controlling it with Fuzzy-pade’ Method

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Forouhar, Moeen (Author) ; Zohoor, Hassan (Supervisor) ; Sohrabpour, Saeed (Supervisor)
    Gyrover is a kind of robot which can move with only one single wheel. In this robot, all the mechanical and electronics’ systems are placed in the wheel of robot. So the wheel of robot is the boundary which separates the inner equipment of gyrover with outside environment. In this robot, only one wheel is used for moving, so the amount of friction of movement in gyrover robot is less in comparison with two and more wheeled vehicles. Because of this gyrover can move to more domains. Gyrover robot can move both on land and water. Gyrover robot is not intrinsically stable which means that it cannot stand on ground. So for stability of gyrover another dynamic system should be used. The best...

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Kharmandar, Negar (Author) ; Khayyat, Amir Ali Akbar (Supervisor)
    The present study discusses the problem of enabling a PUMA 560 electrical robot manipulator to interact with the environment using impedance control concept. The impedance control strategy maintains a pre-specified desired second order dynamic relation between the end-effector position and force and enables a stable transmission between unconstrained and constrained motion. In this study Position-Based Impedance Control (PBIC) is used which is more suitable for industrial manipulators. PBIC requires a position controller with high accuracy. Therefore, a nonlinear PID controller is used in the position loop which is capable of both tracking and regulating of the input signals and shows better...
