    Acknowledge of Emotions for Improving Student-Robot Interaction

    Hasan Han1, Oguzcan Karadeniz1, Tugba Dalyan2,*, Elena Battini Sonmez2, Baykal Sarioglu1

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.37, No.1, pp. 1209-1224, 2023, DOI:10.32604/iasc.2023.030674

    Abstract Robot companions will soon be part of our everyday life and students in the engineering faculty must be trained to design, build, and interact with them. The two affordable robots presented in this paper have been designed and constructed by two undergraduate students; one artificial agent is based on the Nvidia Jetson Nano development board and the other one on a remote computer system. Moreover, the robots have been refined with an empathetic system, to make them more user-friendly. Since automatic facial expression recognition skills is a necessary pre-processing step for acknowledging emotions, this paper tested different variations of Convolutional… More >

    K. Karnavel1,*, G. Shanmugasundaram2, Satish S. Salunkhe3, V. Kamatchi Sundari4, M. Shunmugathammal4, Bal Krishna Saraswat5

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.32, No.3, pp. 1855-1865, 2022, DOI:10.32604/iasc.2022.023524

    Abstract Soft robotics is a new field that uses actuators that are non-standard and compatible materials. Industrial robotics is high-throughput manufacturing devices that are quick and accurate. They are built on rigid-body mechanisms. The advancement of robotic production now depends on the inclusion of staff in manufacturing processes, allowing for the completion of activities that need cognitive abilities that are now beyond the scope of artificial networks. Hydrostatic pressure is used to achieve high deflections of structures that are based on the elastomeric in Fluid Actuators (FAs). Soft actuators based on the fluid are a popular choice safe for humans and… More >

    Graphics Evolutionary Computations in Higher Order Parametric Bezier Curves

    Monday Eze1,*, Charles Okunbor2, Deborah Aleburu3, Olubukola Adekola1, Ibrahim Ramon4, Nneka Richard-Nnabu5, Oghenetega Avwokuruaye6, Abisola Olayiwola3, Rume Yoro7, Esomu Solomon8

    Computer Systems Science and Engineering, Vol.41, No.2, pp. 595-609, 2022, DOI:10.32604/csse.2022.020835

    Abstract This work demonstrates in practical terms the evolutionary concepts and computational applications of Parametric Curves. Specific cases were drawn from higher order parametric Bezier curves of degrees 2 and above. Bezier curves find real life applications in diverse areas of Engineering and Computer Science, such as computer graphics, robotics, animations, virtual reality, among others. Some of the evolutionary issues explored in this work are in the areas of parametric equations derivations, proof of related theorems, first and second order calculus related computations, among others. A Practical case is demonstrated using a graphical design, physical hand sketching, and programmatic implementation of… More >

    Development of A Low-Cost Exoskeleton for Rehabilitation and Mobility

    Muhatasim Intisar1, Mohammad Monirujjaman Khan1,*, Mehedi Masud2, Mohammad Shorfuzzaman2

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.31, No.1, pp. 101-115, 2022, DOI:10.32604/iasc.2022.019083

    Abstract Paralysis is detrimental to people in catastrophic ways: losing income opportunities, becoming a burden to their friends and family, further physical deterioration, and the combination of these occurrences can often lead to depression. In third world countries, suffering from paralysis can be extra deleterious, where a large proportion of the population is engaged in some form of physical labor. The number of people exposed to paralysis risk factors is also increasing, with more and more people having hypertension, smoking, and other abnormalities. Besides, low workplace safety precautions may lead to an increased risk of spinal cord injury in developing nations.… More >

    Computer Vision Based Robotic Arm Controlled Using Interactive GUI

    Muhatasim Intisar1, Mohammad Monirujjaman Khan1,*, Mohammad Rezaul Islam1, Mehedi Masud2

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.27, No.2, pp. 533-550, 2021, DOI:10.32604/iasc.2021.015482

    Abstract This paper presents the design and implementation of a robotic vision system operated using an interactive Graphical User Interface (GUI) application. As robotics continue to become a more integral part of the industrial complex, there is a need for automated systems that require minimal to no user training to operate. With this motivation in mind, the system is designed so that a beginner user can operate the device with very little instruction. The application allows users to determine their desired object, which will be picked up and placed by a robotic arm into the target location. The application allows users… More >

    Survey of Robotics in Education, Taxonomy, Applications, and Platforms during COVID-19

    Hussain A. Younis1,2, A. S. A. Mohamed2,*, R. Jamaludin3, M. N. Ab Wahab2

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.67, No.1, pp. 687-707, 2021, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2021.013746

    Abstract The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is characterized as a disease caused by a novel coronavirus known as severe acute respiratory coronavirus syndrome 2 (SARS-CoV-2; formerly known as 2019-nCoV). In December 2019, COVID-19 began to appear in a few countries. By the beginning of 2020, it had spread to most countries across the world. This is when education challenges began to arise. The COVID-19 crisis led to the closure of thousands of schools and universities all over the world. Such a situation requires reliance on e-learning and robotics education for students to continue their studies to avoid the mingling between people… More >

    QRDPSO: A New Optimization Method for Swarm Robot Searching and Obstacle Avoidance in Dynamic Environments

    Mehiar, D.A.F., Azizul, Z.H.*, Loo, C.K.

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.26, No.3, pp. 447-454, 2020, DOI:10.32604/iasc.2020.013921

    Abstract In this paper we show how the quantum-based particle swarm optimization (QPSO) method is adopted to derive a new derivation for robotics application in search and rescue simulations. The new derivation, called the Quantum Robot Darwinian PSO (QRDPSO) is inspired from another PSO-based algorithm, the Robot Darwinian PSO (RDPSO). This paper includes comprehensive details on the QRDPSO formulation and parameters control which show how the swarm overcomes communication constraints to avoid obstacles and achieve optimal solution. The results show the QRDPSO is an upgrade over RDPSO in terms of convergence speed, trajectory control, obstacle avoidance and connectivity performance of the… More >

    Active Control of a Piezoelectric Actuated Four-Bar Mechanism Deployed in Robotics Applications

    Qais A. Khasawneh1,3, Mohammad Abdel Kareem Jaradat1,2, Mohammad Al-Shabi4, Hala Khalaf1

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.24, No.2, pp. 443-457, 2018, DOI:10.31209/2018.100000008

    Abstract This work presents a new micro-positioning system that is implemented in an inchworm robot to move into desired locations. The system consists of four-bar mechanism; one link is fixed, and each one of the remaining links carries a piezoelectric actuator (PZT). PZTs are specifically chosen since they provide fast response and small displacements; up to ±30 µm for ±100 Volts. The system’s mathematical model is derived and is numerically simulated by MATLAB. Three fuzzy PI controllers, which are tuned automatically by genetic algorithm, are designed to control the system. Results indicate an error of less than 1% although disturbances present. More >

    Abstract Grid and cloud computing systems have been extensively used to solve large and complex problems in science and engineering fields. These systems include powerful computing resources that are connected through high-speed networks. Due to the recent advances in mobile computing and networking technologies, it has become feasible to integrate various mobile devices, such as robots, aerial vehicles, sensors, and smart phones, with grid and cloud computing systems. This integration enables the design and development of the next generation of applications by sharing of resources in mobile environments and introduces several challenges due to a dynamic and unpredictable network.
