The powder forming industry looks to produce parts of increasing geometrical complexity as it is seen as a very efficient production process. This offers new challenges as three-dimensional states of stress are induced. In particular, granular and porous materials respond very differently to tensile and compressive stresses. Since experiments conducted in the 1990s, little exploration of the Lode dependency of powders was carried out. The present work investigates the effect of Lode dependency through numerical simulation, aiming to establish whether it affects the outcome of a compaction cycle and whether further experimental study of the phenomenon may be justified. To this effect, a Lode dependent model was developed and implemented in a finite element code, then two case studies were carried out. The results show that there is little impact on the density contours within the components and the stress levels during the compaction. As the parts are ejected from the die, surface stress levels are affected and this is of great interest when studying the onset of defects in powder compacts. © 2011 Elsevier B.V.

Kinetics determined by NMR: Whereas most measurements of kinetic parameters of a ligand-protein complex use displacement of the ligand, protein displacement can give accurate off-rates in solution (see picture). Analytical and simulation results are given for the apparent off-rate obtained by protein displacement. Copyright © 2013 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim.

Hermes is an asymmetrical point-to-point underwater acoustic modem designed for short-range operations at very high bit rates in ports and shallow waters using broadband acoustic signaling (262-375 kHz). In exploring the possible conversion of Hermes into a multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) device, single-carrier phase-modulated spread-spectrum sequences were used for channel estimation and deconvolution purposes. It clearly appeared that the channel estimation and deconvolution routines were quite sensitive to rapid time changes in the acoustic channel impulse response (CIR), which usually reflects the presence of Doppler spread produced for the most part by moving boundaries and oscillating sensors. In this paper, the authors study the least square (LS) channel estimation routine ability to track the time-varying nature of the impulse response using broadband, single-carrier pseudonoise (PN) sequences transmitted by a single source and collected by a single receiver. In addition, the authors evaluate a trend estimation technique, based on the empirical modal decomposition (EMD) method applied to the LS estimate of the CIR. Simulated data produced with a Rayleigh channel model and experimental data collected in a marina are used. This paper shows that the channel estimation method can estimate the time-varying impulse response of the acoustic channel with a high resolution of both time and delay (down to 7 $\mu$s) at the expense of high computational requirements. In analyzing the time variation of the main and secondary echoes for a signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of 32 dB, simulated results indicate that the root mean square error (RMSE) between theoretical and LS estimated response is 7.8% for the main path with an equivalent Doppler spread of 10 Hz and 15.7% for the second path with an equivalent Doppler spread of 15 Hz. Applying the trend estimation technique to the LS CIR greatly reduces this error, down to 2.9% for the main path and to 4.7% for the second path. The experimental data clearly show that the routine can closely track the time variations of the main echo and provide a meaningful estimate of the Doppler spread. © 2013 IEEE.

In this paper, we propose a normative Multi-Agent System to handle uncertainty in a monitoring application. It is based on the assertion that no single most-likely situation should be considered, thus requiring the management of multiple concurrent hypotheses. A decision is then made by comparing these hypothesized situations to requirements and expectations, thus detecting potential problems. This system uses a large knowledge base of interconnected situation models on several levels of abstraction. It is centered around the need to constantly reconsider which hypotheses should be evaluated, with regards to both the current data from the sensors and wider requirements in terms of efficiency and specific focus from an expected scenario. We propose both a generic concept, and a more specific system for human health monitoring, using ambulatory physiological sensors. © 2012 The Authors and IOS Press.

This paper presents a decentralized architecture for the navigation of a formation of autonomous mobile robots evolving in an uncertain environment with obstacles. The motion planning scheme consists in decentralized receding horizon controllers that reside on each vehicle to achieve coordination among formation agents. The advantage of the proposed algorithm is that each vehicle only requires local knowledge of its neighboring vehicles. The main requirement for designing a conflict free trajectory that satisfy the coupling constraints, in a decentralized way, is that each robot do not deviate too far from its assumed trajectory designed without taking into account the coupling constraints. Having established an open loop control strategy for motion planning, an effective saturated closed-loop controller based on integral sliding mode for trajectory tracking is presented. Finally, some simulation results demonstrate the effectiveness, real-time and high robustness properties of the proposed architecture. © 2007 EUCA.

A single landmark based localization algorithm for unicycle mobile robots was provided in . It is based on the algebraic localizability notion and an efficient differentiation algorithm in noisy environment (, ). Let us stress that this localization algorithm do not need to know the linear and the angular velocities which are reconstructed by this algorithm using the kinematic model. In this paper, a sensibility study leads to a new fusion algorithm in the multi landmark case using as a basis our posture differentiation based estimator. Some simulations and experimental results are presented in order to prove the effectiveness of the proposed method compared to the well known EKF method. © 2012 IEEE.

This paper reports successful wireless drive of a 100 μm × 500 μm × 5 μm MEMS thermal actuator via micro-scale coupled magnetic resonances. Receiver inductor is 500 μm × 500 μm, which is the same scale as the actuator. There is no need for rectifier circuit to drive the actuator, enabling power transmission with zero conversion loss. The transmission efficiency of the system was also evaluated and the efficacy of magnetic resonant coupling for micro-scale power transmission was verified. The system using downsized transmitter inductor was also evaluated and we verified that it has capability of driving the actuator wirelessly. © 2015 IEEE.

Polar architectures offering good efficiency tend to be generalized to broadband standards with high Peak to Average Power Ratio and rigorous emission mask. Some well-known sources of spectral distortions as delay between phase and envelope paths and PA nonlinearities reduce the relevance of such technique. This paper analyses another drawback which is the spectral regrowth produced by filtering the phase signal and not the envelope signal that is done in an architecture based on a digital PA. Three kind of spectral distortions are observable. The first one is Adjacent Channel Leakage Ratio degradation due to spectral regrowth in adjacent channels depending on the oversampling ratio. The two other effects attenuate and enlarge the out-of-band images what could be used to alleviate the filtering requirements for wideband systems. © 2011 IEEE.
