1. Application of Pairwise Testing into BWDM which is a Test Case Generation Tool for the VDM++ Specification

Tetsuro Katayama, Futa Hirakoba, Yoshihiro Kita, Hisaaki Yamaba, Kentaro Aburada, Naonobu Okazaki
Pages: 143 - 147
Verification tool for Vienna Development Method (BWDM) is a test case generation tool for the VDM++ specification. The existing BWDM could cause a combinatorial explosion of the generated test cases. To reduce the number of test cases, there is Pairwise Independent Combinatorial Testing Tool (PICT):...

2. Soil Compaction and Rolling Resistance Evaluation of a Locomotion System with an Adjustable Contact Patch for a Grape Transporting Robot

Enrico di Maria, Kazuo Ishii
Pages: 148 - 151
Soil compaction is a form of soil degradation which causes soil erosion, drainage difficulties, and loss of nutrients. To mitigate this issue, in agricultural farms several methods have been adopted. In this paper, the preliminary study of a locomotion system with adjustable contact patches is proposed....

3. Development of the Feed Part Control System for Rectification Process

Fengzhi Dai, Lingran An
Pages: 152 - 156
This paper completes the structure design of the feed process for the small rectification experimental unit. According to the process requirements, the overall scheme of the detection and control system and the main parameters are designed, and the type of the instrument is selected. The system hardware...

4. Evaluation and Build to honeypot System about SCADA Security for Large-Scale IoT Devices

Kuan-Chu Lu, I-Hsien Liu, Jia-Wei Liao, Shao-Chun Wu, Zong-Chao Liu, Jung-Shian Li, Chu-Fen Li
Pages: 157 - 161
Under the trend of intelligent industrial control systems, it is very important to prevent network hackers from invading the system to attack devices. In particular, today’s hackers have multiple attacks and the number of attacks has increased year-by-year. How to stop hackers from attacking the system...

5. Evaluation for the Synchronization of the Parade with OpenPose

Yohei Okugawa, Masao Kubo, Hiroshi Sato, Bui Duc Viet
Pages: 162 - 166
In military organization, the synchronization in the parade is important for showing their majesty. However, we do not have any quantitative evaluation methods for the parade. In this research, as a first step of the quantitative evaluation for the parade, we propose an evaluation method focusing on...

6. Spherical Mobile Robot Driven by Single Omni Wheel

Liu Wei, Wang Runjiao, Duan Lunqin, Wang Yanyan, Wang Jiwu
Pages: 167 - 170
This paper presents a new spherical mobile robot driven by single omni wheel. The physical model is that an arc track is built inside the sphere shell and can rotate around a spherical diameter freely. It supports one driving omni wheel and keeps the driving omni wheel touching the inside of the sphere...

7. Influence of Safe Driving Support System for Electric Wheelchair on Operation Input

Hiroshi Suzuki, Tomoki Matsuo, Takashi Yasuno
Pages: 171 - 178
This paper describes the influence on operation input which is given by a safe driving support system for an electric wheelchair. A wheelchair is rapidly introduced as a mobility for elderly people who has disabilities on walking. Along with that, collision accidents of the wheelchair also increase and...

8. Modeling Virtual Reality Environment Based on SFM Method#

Jiwu Wang, Chenyang Li, Shijie Yi, Zixin Li
Pages: 179 - 182
Virtual Reality (VR) technology is widely used in digital cities, industrial simulation, training, etc. where the environment modeling is a necessary component. Comparing with the difficulty to build the three dimension (3D) environment with the conventional methods, the Structure from Motion (SFM) method...

9. Evaluation of the Roller Arrangements for the Ball-Dribbling Mechanisms Adopted by RoboCup Teams

Kenji Kimura, Shota Chikushi, Kazuo Ishii
Pages: 183 - 190
The middle-size league soccer competition is an important RoboCup event designed to promote advancements in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and robotics. In recent years, soccer robots using a dribbling mechanism, through which the ball is controlled using two driving rollers, have been adopted by teams...
