Nowadays attaining the general and comprehensive information about customers by means of traditional methods is difficult for CEO's because of the agility and complexity of organizations. So they spend a considerable time to gather and analyze the market data and consider it according to the organization's strategy. Presenting a useful architecture that capable to diagnose the organization's advantages and disadvantages, and identify the attainable competitive advantages are the main goals of this paper. The output of such architecture can be a general exhibition of company that prepares a clear and on time comprehensive view for CEO's.[...] Read more.
This paper presents the use of different soft computing techniques for step response enhancement of Hybrid Stepper Motors. The basic differential equations of hybrid stepper motor are used to build up a model using MATLAB software package. The implementation of Fuzzy Logic (FL) and Proportional-Integral-Derivative (PID) controllers are used to improve the motor performance. The numerical simulations by a PC-based controller show that the PID controller tuned by Genetic Algorithm (GA) produces better performance than that tuned by Fuzzy controller. They show that, the Fuzzy PID-like controller produces better performance than the other linear Fuzzy controllers. Finally, the comparison between PID controllers tuned by genetic algorithm and the Fuzzy PID-like controller shows that, the Fuzzy PID-like controller produces better performance.[...] Read more.
In this paper, a hybrid control technique is proposed for managing the variation of angle and velocity of the inverted pendulum. The proposed hybrid technique is the combination of ABC algorithm and interval type-2 Fuzzy Logic System (IT2FLS). The objective of the proposed hybrid control technique is to achieve the stability position of the pendulum. Here, the ABC algorithm is used to optimize the change of angle and change of velocity of the pendulum. With the optimized value, the optimal membership functions and the interference system are developed using IT2FLS. Using the ABC based IT2FLS, the position of the inverted pendulum is maintained towards the reference position. The proposed hybrid control technique is implemented in MATLAB/Simulink working platform and the control performances are evaluated.[...] Read more.
Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) is a disruptive neurobehavioral disorder characterized by abnormal behavioral patterns in attention, perusing activity, acting impulsively and combined types. It is predominant among school going children and it is tricky to differentiate between an active and an ADHD child. Misdiagnosis and undiagnosed cases are very common. Behavior patterns are identified by the mentors in the academic environment who lack skills in screening those kids. Hence an unsupervised learning algorithm can cluster the behavioral patterns of children at school for diagnosis of ADHD. In this paper, we propose a hierarchical clustering algorithm to partition the dataset based on attribute dependency (HCAD). HCAD forms clusters of data based on the high dependent attributes and their equivalence relation. It is capable of handling large volumes of data with reasonably faster clustering than most of the existing algorithms. It can work on both labeled and unlabelled data sets. Experimental results reveal that this algorithm has higher accuracy in comparison to other algorithms. HCAD achieves 97% of cluster purity in diagnosing ADHD. Empirical analysis of application of HCAD on different data sets from UCI repository is provided.[...] Read more.
In this paper a new RISE controller is gained to control chaos in a tracking task. The technique copes with the chattering phenomenon whilst works for different classes of nonlinear systems incorporating different relative degrees. This control strategy will be primarily implemented on a Duffing chaotic system. In order to assess performance of the controller, the technique will be implemented on a more complex system, so called Genesio-Tesi dynamic. The result will be finally compared with an optimal controller. The capability of the proposed feedback technique to control the chaos is verified through simulation study with respect to similar classic approaches.[...] Read more.
In this paper, a method for solving a class of nonlinear optimal control problems is presented. The method is based on replacing the dynamic nonlinear optimal control problem by a sequence of quadratic programming problems. To this end, the iterative technique developed by Banks is used to replace the original nonlinear dynamic system by a sequence of linear time-varying dynamic systems, then each of the new problems is converted to quadratic programming problem by parameterizing the state variables by a finite length Chebyshev series with unknown parameters. To show the effectiveness of the proposed method, simulation results of a nonlinear optimal control problem are presented.[...] Read more.
In this paper the development, modeling and high precision robust control of an electro-mechanical continuum robot manipulator is presented. In this paper main controller is a Sliding Mode Controller which modified by modified PD methodology based on the boundary derivative methodology. Parallel fuzzy logic theory is used to compensate the system dynamic uncertainty controller based on sliding mode theory. Sliding mode controller (SMC) is a significant nonlinear controller under condition of partly uncertain dynamic parameters of system. This controller is used to control of highly nonlinear systems especially for continuum robot manipulator, because this controller is robust and stable in presence of partly uncertainties. PD partly switching nonlinear SMC by modified PD boundary derivative method is used to achieve a stable tracking, while the parallel fuzzy-logic optimization added intelligence to the control system through an automatic tuning of the PD modified partly switching sliding mode methodology uncertainties. Adaptive methodology is used to on-line tuning the sliding surface slope and gain updating factor of this methodology. Simulation results demonstrated the validity of the Mamdani parallel fuzzy-optimization control with asymptotic and stable tracking at different position inputs. This compensation demonstrated a well synchronized control signal at different excitation conditions.[...] Read more.
Multipath routing does not minimize the consequences of security attacks. Due to this many WSNs are still in danger of most security attacks even when multipath routing is used. In critical situations, for example, in military and health applications this may lead to undesired, harmful and disastrous effects. These applications need to get their data communicated efficiently and in a secure manner. In this paper, we show the results of a series of security attacks on a multipath extension to the ad hoc on-demand distance vector AODV protocol, AOMDV. It is proved that many security parameters are negatively affected by security attacks on AOMDV, which is contradictory to research claims. This means that alternative refinements have to be made to present multipath routing protocols in order to make them more effective against network security attacks.[...] Read more.
Natural phenomenon’s and swarms behavior are the warm area of research among the researchers. A large number of algorithms have been developed on the account of natural phenomenon’s and swarms behavior. These algorithms have been implemented on the various computational problems for the sake of solutions and provided significant results than conventional methods but there is no such algorithm which can be applied for all of the computational problems. In 2009, a new algorithm was developed on the behalf of theory of gravity and was named gravitational search algorithm (GSA) for continuous optimization problems. In short span of time, GSA algorithm gain popularity among researchers and has been applied to large number of problems such as clustering, classification, parameter identification etc. This paper presents the compendious survey on the GSA algorithm and its applications as well as enlightens the applicability of GSA in data clustering & classification.[...] Read more.
