Publications and Research

Previous work had been done on what was an adaptation of a robotic arm for Roboqueen, which is a persistent research project of the Department of Computer Engineering Technology. This robotic arm consisted of removing the cardboard hands from the Roboqueen and being replaced by 3D printed fingers and wrists to add functionality that did not exist before. Servo motors connected to Arduinos hidden in the forearm will be used to move the fingers and pick up and hold objects in the hand. Currently, the Finger Myoware is an update of the robotic arm in order to understand how prosthetic ...

Reinforcement Learning Approach For Inspect/Correct Tasks, Hoda Nasereddin 2020 Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College

Reinforcement Learning Approach For Inspect/Correct Tasks, Hoda Nasereddin

LSU Doctoral Dissertations

In this research, we focus on the application of reinforcement learning (RL) in automated agent tasks involving considerable target variability (i.e., characterized by stochastic distributions); in particular, learning of inspect/correct tasks. Examples include automated identification & correction of rivet failures in airplane maintenance procedures, and automated cleaning of surgical instruments in a hospital sterilization processing department. The location of defects and the corrective action to be taken for each varies from task episode. What needs to be learned are optimal stochastic strategies rather than optimization of any one single defect type and location. RL has been widely applied in ...


Extending The Functional Subnetwork Approach To A Generalized Linear Integrate-And-Fire Neuron Model, Nicholas Szczecinski, Roger Quinn, Alexander J. Hunt 2020 West Virginia University

Extending The Functional Subnetwork Approach To A Generalized Linear Integrate-And-Fire Neuron Model, Nicholas Szczecinski, Roger Quinn, Alexander J. Hunt

Mechanical and Materials Engineering Faculty Publications and Presentations

Engineering neural networks to perform specific tasks often represents a monumental challenge in determining network architecture and parameter values. In this work, we extend our previously-developed method for tuning networks of non-spiking neurons, the “Functional subnetwork approach” (FSA), to the tuning of networks composed of spiking neurons. This extension enables the direct assembly and tuning of networks of spiking neurons and synapses based on the network’s intended function, without the use of global optimization ormachine learning. To extend the FSA, we show that the dynamics of a generalized linear integrate and fire (GLIF) neuronmodel have fundamental similarities to those ...

Evaluating The Potential Of Drone Swarms In Nonverbal Hri Communication, Kasper Grispino, Damian Lyons, Truong-Huy Nguyen

Faculty Publications

Human-to-human communications are enriched with affects and emotions, conveyed, and perceived through both verbal and nonverbal communication. It is our thesis that drone swarms can be used to communicate information enriched with effects via nonverbal channels: guiding, generally interacting with, or warning a human audience via their pattern of motions or behavior. And furthermore that this approach has unique advantages such as flexibility and mobility over other forms of user interface. In this paper, we present a user study to understand how human participants perceived and interpreted swarm behaviors of micro-drone Crazyflie quadcopters flying three different flight formations to bridge ...

Work Modeling For Categorization Of Late Potentials In Ecg Signals By Way Of Wavelets, P. V. RamaRaju Mr., DR. V. MALLESWARA RAO 2020 E.C.E. Department, S.R.K.R. Engineering College, Bhimavaram,A.P,

Work Modeling For Categorization Of Late Potentials In Ecg Signals By Way Of Wavelets, P. V. Ramaraju Mr., Dr. V. Malleswara Rao

International Journal of Image Processing and Vision Science

Late potentials in ECG take place in the terminal portion of the QRS complex and are characterized by tiny amplitudes and larger frequencies. The occurrence of late potentials may signify underlying distribution of electrical activity of the cells in the heart, and provides a substrate for production of arrhythmias. The conventional Fourier transform does not readily localize these features in time and frequency. Short Time Fourier Transform (STFT) is added useful because the concentration of the signal energy at various times in the cardiac cycle is more readily identified. This STFT suffers from the problem of selecting the proper window ...

Light Scattering Fenestration System, Badri Narayan Mohapatra, Rashmita Kumari Mohapatra

International Journal of Image Processing and Vision Science

Successful integration of day lighting systems requires the ability to predict their performance for given climates. In this, a bottom-up approach is applied to evaluate the optical performance of a selection of day lighting systems. The evaluations are based on the optical properties of the included materials, and focuses on developing new optical characterization methods. The work on characterization techniques uses an integrating sphere method to characterize the transmittance of light scattering samples more accurately. The method's principle is to reduce the discrepancy in light distribution between the reference and the sample scans by using an entry port beam ...

International Journal of Image Processing and Vision Science

Image filtering is a very important step in image processing. Filtering involves lots of multiplications which consumes time. Time required increases with the increase in the number of pixels. This paper proposes an approach for image filtering using Vedic Mathematic which performs faster multiplication compared to the conventional algorithms namely Booth 2, Booth 3 and Array Multiplication Algorithm thus reducing the time required for filtering of images. Experimentation is done using C language. Time required by the algorithms for filtering are then compared using the experimental results.


Handwritten Signature Verification Based On The Use Of Gray Level Values, P. RAMESH, P. NAGESWARA RAO 2020 ECE, Khadar Memorial Engineering College, JNTUH

Handwritten Signature Verification Based On The Use Of Gray Level Values, P. Ramesh, P. Nageswara Rao

International Journal of Image Processing and Vision Science

Recently several papers have appeared in the literature which propose pseudo-dynamic features for automatic static handwritten signature verification based on the use of gray level values from signature stroke pixels. Good results have been obtained using rotation invariant uniform local binary patterns LBP plus LBP and statistical measures from gray level co-occurrence matrices (GLCM) with MCYT and GPDS offline signature corpuses. In these studies the corpuses contain signatures written on a uniform white “nondistorting” background, however the gray level distribution of signature strokes changes when it is written on a complex background, such as a check or an invoice. The ...
