A novel multi-robot cooperation approach for simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) is proposed based on local submap strategy. Robots in the state of localization enhancing can improve its localization accuracy by the way of observing redundant landmarks or get help from other accurate robots. The robot team evaluates the candidate observing pose and then decides which robot to execute the task of localization enhancement by a competition mechanism. Except the robots which execute localization enhancing, the others go into the state of exploration. The greedy algorithm is introduced to allocate the task of exploration for the robots which are in the exploration state. In such a way, the multiple robots can achieve both efficient and accurate SLAM. The simulation results show the validity of the proposed approach. © 2012 Chinese Assoc of Automati.

People usually travel to the same destinations and for the same purposes together with other people in groups. Inferring the travel purposes of passenger groups is a very interesting research problem in the field of passenger transport, because it can help us to better understand passengers and should bring about meaningful changes for personalized travel service and decision making of passenger carriers, organizations, and even governments. In this paper, we attempt to solve this problem by utilizing the historical travel records of passengers. To overcome the constraint of the independent and identical distribution assumption of traditional classifiers, we propose a novel iterative classification approach based on the idea of collective inference. First, we construct cotravel networks by extracting social relations between passengers from their historical travel records that are available in carriers' passenger information systems. Then, we generate a series of sophisticated features for each passenger group in the context of cotravel networks to capture the link structure information between passengers and use the overlapping relations between passenger groups to capture the probabilistic dependence relations between their labels. Finally, we collectively infer the labels of all the groups in an iterative way. Experimental results on a real data set of passenger travel records in the field of civil aviation demonstrate that our proposed iterative classification approach can efficiently infer the travel purposes of passenger groups. © 2014 IEEE.

EigenTrust is a typical global trust model which presents a distributed and secure method to compute the global trust values for peer to peer network, but it can't judge the authenticity of the evaluation from the requesting service peer. To alleviate the problem, we present an improved algorithm based on EigenTrust trust model, called EnhanEigen. We use malicious percentage (mp) and feedback consistency percentage (fcp) as the new trust evaluation criterion to filter malicious peers. By changing the ways in which peers submit feedbacks and using comprehensive trust value, our trust model can distinguish false feedback to resist to malicious attack. Simulation experiments demonstrate that it has a better performance on ensuring the success rate of transactions and has the shorter algorithm execution time. © (2013) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.

This paper focuses on the problem of passenger relationship classification in the field of civil aviation. We propose to solve this problem in the context of social networks. Based on the existed relationship classification algorithms and the characteristics of social networks of civil aviation passengers, we present a network-based iterative correction model and design a novel two-stage algorithm to classify the relationships between civil aviation passengers. The experimental results on a real passenger social network dataset indicate the efficiency and effectiveness of our algorithm.

This paper proposed an interactive query mode for an OWL-oriented question-answering system, named Agile, to refine answers. The key problem for interactive query modes in QAs is producing natural language sub-questions. This paper used a two-phases semantic mapping method to produce sub-questions. The first phase builds RDF triples based on existing OWL knowledge and given original questions. The second phase maps RDF triples into natural language sub-questions through some lingual common sense and predefined rules. To validate effect of interactive queries, we have conducted some experiments involving two different domain of knowledge bases and accepted some promising results. © 2013 IEEE.

Most previous researches on out-of-vocabulary words recognition are concentrating on traditional areas, while in electronic commerce area this recognition is rarely involved. In this paper, we focus on the out-of-vocabulary words recognition in the field of electronic commerce. Based on the unique characteristics of electronic commerce data, we introduce the Conditional Random Fields (CRFs) into the out-ofvocabulary words recognition, and use the electronic commerce text corpus for the experimental verification. The experimental results show that CRFs in the recognition of out-of-vocabulary words in the field of electronic commerce is effective. © Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2014.

Alarm association rules mining is an important task in system fault hagnosis and localization. Once the system fails, it will produce a large number of alarm information. By analyzing the characteristics of the booking system alarm data, this study puts forward alarm association rules mining algorithm based on sliding time window model to find the fault source and the correlation between fault factors in a large number of alarm information. The experiments show that the valuable alarm association rules can be acquired from the alarm data accurately and rapidly. These rules can provide support decision for the system maintenance personnel. © 2014 Academic Journals Inc.
