Mixed-integer linear programming models for the type-II resource-constrained assembly line balancing problem

Adalberto Sato Michels, Alysson M. Costa

Resource-constrained assembly lines are widely found in industries that manufacture complex products. In such lines, tasks may require specific resources to be processed…

Eye control system based on convolutional neural network: a review

Jianbin Xiong, Jinji Nie, Jiehao Li

This paper primarily aims to focus on a review of convolutional neural network (CNN)-based eye control systems. The performance of CNNs in big data has led to the…

A C2 continuous trajectory planning method for 6-DOF rotational robot manipulators

Kang Min, Fenglei Ni, Guojun Zhang, Xin Shu, Hong Liu

The purpose of this paper is to propose a smooth double-spline interpolation method for six-degree-of-freedom rotational robot manipulators, achieving the global C2…

Developing a firewater deluge monitoring and forecasting system based on GA-ARMA model

Feixiang Xu, Ruoyuan Qu, Chen Zhou

The firewater deluge system (FDS) can provide water automatically through a deluge valve when a fire breaks out. However, there are many fire hazards caused by the…

Inventive redesign for automatic assembly in the household appliances industry

Augusto Bianchini, Alessandro Ceruti, Andrea D’Anniballe, Jessica Rossi, Giorgio Zompi

In the redesign process of assembly components that need adaptation to robotic assembly, designers can find support from structured methodologies for innovation, such as…

Evaluation of failure risks for manual tightening operations in automotive assembly lines

Armagan Altinisik, Utku Yildirim, Y. Ilker Topcu

The tightening operations are one of the most critical operations in automotive assembly lines because of its direct impact on customer safety. This study aims to evaluate…

An iterative learning control with learnable band extension for the nanopositioning stage

Chengsi Huang, Zhichao Yang, Jiedong Li

Due to the advantages of fast response, high positioning precision and large stiffness, the piezoelectric-actuated nanopositioning stage is widely used in the…

Smoothly adapting viscosity to velocity during comanipulation pointing movements

Lin Dong, Florian Richer, Agnes Roby-Brami, Guillaume Morel

When a robot comanipulates an object with a human user, damping is a useful function. This is achieved by programming the robot to exhibit a viscous field. For some…

Active disturbance rejection control for optoelectronic stabilized platform based on model-assisted double extended state observers

Peng Gao, Xiuqin Su, Wenbo Zhang

This study aims to promote the anti-disturbance and tracking accuracy of optoelectronic stabilized platforms, which ensure that optical detectors accurately track targets…

A knowledge-based real-time scheduling system for steam turbine assembly under CPS environment

Teng Wang, Xiaofeng Hu, Yahui Zhang

Steam turbine final assembly is a dynamic process, in which various interference events occur frequently. Currently, data transmission relies on oral presentation, while…
