In a standard Evolutionary Algorithms (EAs), one uses the same rate for mutations from bit 1 to bit 0 and its reverse direction. There are many reports that the asymmetric mutation model is a very powerful strategy in EAs to obtain better solutions more efficiently. In this paper, we report stochastic...

This research has implemented a prototype of a supporting tool to generate testing communication diagram. The testing communication diagram helps a developer to understand where the software system is tested by a large quantity of test cases written in text, and it is generated by adding the information...

This paper investigates an attitude reorientation control scheme of spacecraft, considering attitude forbidden zone and external disturbances. A novel potential barrier function is proposed with an attitude constraint term and a dynamical scaling term. Here the dynamical scaling term is synthesized...

We investigated the postural sway in response to local vibratory stimulation applied to young, middle-aged and elderly people in the standing position. For this purpose we developed a variable-frequency vibratory stimulation device and measured the postural sway using a gravicorder. As a result, when...

In our previously reported system, after the first music recommendation process using collaborative filtering was terminated, the second recommendation process based on the scores for impression words finds the most similar music to the successfully recommended music among music that has not yet been...

At the present time, mobile devices such as tablet-type PCs and smart phones have widely penetrated into our daily lives. Therefore, an authentication method that prevents shoulder surfing is needed. We are investigating a new user authentication method for mobile devices that uses surface electromyogram...

This paper presents a robot swarm model to enclose a target. The robots use information of the target and each of their neighbors. Every robot has its own, standard torch-like signal emitter and they can observe the sum of the intensity of their torches. In this paper, the robots identify their nearest...
