6. Design of an Optimized GMV Controller Based on Data-Driven Approach

Liying Shi, Zhe Guan, Toru Yamamoto
Pages: 180 - 185
This paper presents a data-driven scheme that can obtain the optimized Generalized Minimum Variance (GMV) control parameters by applying the Nelder–Mead (NM) method based on Proportional-Integral Derivative (PID) controller for linear system. An adjustable λ is included in the GMV-PID controller. In...

7. End-to-End Deep Learning by MCU Implementation: Indoor Localization by Sound Spectrum of Light Fingerprints

Chung-Wen Hung, Hiroyuki Kobayashi, Jun-Rong Wu, Chau-Chung Song
Pages: 186 - 192
This paper introduces a low-cost indoor localization system using sound spectrum of light fingerprint. An Artificial Intelligence (AI), algorithm will be implemented in a low-cost Micro-Control Unit (MCU), to perform the localization function. The unique light fingerprints with complex and tiny differences...

11. Development of a System to Detect Eye Position Abnormality based on Eye-Tracking

Noriyuki Uchida, Kayoko Takatuka, Hisaaki Yamaba, Masayuki Mukunoki, Naonobu Okazaki
Pages: 205 - 210
In previous research, we developed a method to automate the conventional evaluation of eye misalignment (cover test) and distinguish misaligned eyes from their movements. However, this method had the problem that vertical eye movements were affected by the eyelids and eyelashes, and could not be completely...
