  • A monocular visual measurement system for UAV probe-and-drogue autonomous
           aerial refueling
    • Pages: 166 - 180
      Abstract: International Journal of Intelligent Computing and Cybernetics, Volume 11, Issue 2, Page 166-180, June 2018.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to develop a monocular visual measurement system for autonomous aerial refueling (AAR) for unmanned aerial vehicle, which can process images from an infrared camera to estimate the pose of the drogue in the tanker with high accuracy and real-time performance. Design/methodology/approach Methods and techniques for marker detection, feature matching and pose estimation have been designed and implemented in the visual measurement system. Findings The simple blob detection (SBD) method is adopted, which outperforms the Laplacian of Gaussian method. And a novel noise-elimination algorithm is proposed for excluding the noise points. Besides, a novel feature matching algorithm based on perspective transformation is proposed. Comparative experimental results indicated the rapidity and effectiveness of the proposed methods. Practical implications The visual measurement system developed in this paper can be applied to estimate the pose of the drogue with a fast speed and high accuracy and it is a feasible measurement strategy which will considerably increase the autonomy and reliability for AAR. Originality/value The SBD method is used to detect the features and a novel noise-elimination algorithm is proposed. Besides, a novel feature matching algorithm based on perspective transformation is proposed which is robust and accurate.

  • On active synchronization of fractional-order Bloch chaotic system and its
           practical application in secure image transmission
    • Pages: 181 - 196
      Abstract: International Journal of Intelligent Computing and Cybernetics, Volume 11, Issue 2, Page 181-196, June 2018.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to propose a novel and secure image transmission based on the unpredictable behavior of the chaotic systems. Design/methodology/approach The proposed approach includes two main contributions: synchronization scheme and transmission scheme. The synchronization scheme benefits the advantage of the fractional-order active synchronization method. A new control law is derived to asymptotically synchronize the underlined fractional-order Bloch chaotic system. The validity of the proposed synchronization scheme is proved by the Lyapunov stability theorem. Then, a novel image transmission scheme is designed to transfer image data via chaotic signals, which modulates the encrypted data in the sender signals and demodulates it at the receiver side. Findings Numerical simulations are provided to show the validity and effectiveness of the proposed image transmission system. Furthermore, the performance of the image transmission system is evaluated using some illustrative examples and their corresponding statistical tests. The results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method in comparison with other proposed methods in this subject. Originality/value A new chaos-based image transmission system is developed based on the synchronization of Bloch chaotic system. The introduced transmission system is interesting and could be applicable to any kind of secure image/video transmission.

  • Synchronous self-learning Pareto strategy
    • Pages: 197 - 233
      Abstract: International Journal of Intelligent Computing and Cybernetics, Volume 11, Issue 2, Page 197-233, June 2018.
      Purpose In recent decades, development of effective methods for optimizing a set of conflicted objective functions has been absorbing an increasing interest from researchers. This refers to the essence of real-life engineering systems and complex natural mechanisms which are generally multi-modal, non-convex and multi-criterion. Until now, several deterministic and stochastic methods have been proposed to cope with such complex systems. Advanced soft computational methods such as evolutionary games (cooperative and non-cooperative), Pareto-based techniques, fuzzy evolutionary methods, cooperative bio-inspired algorithms and neuro-evolutionary systems have effectively come to the aid of researchers to build up efficient paradigms with application to vector optimization. The paper aims to discuss this issue. Design/methodology/approach A novel hybrid algorithm called synchronous self-learning Pareto strategy (SSLPS) is presented for the sake of vector optimization. The method is the ensemble of evolutionary algorithms (EA), swarm intelligence (SI), adaptive version of self-organizing map (CSOM) and a data shuffling mechanism. EA are powerful numerical optimization algorithms capable of finding a global extreme point over a wide exploration domain. SI techniques (the swarm of bees in our case) can improve both intensification and robustness of exploration. CSOM network is an unsupervised learning methodology which learns the characteristics of non-dominated solutions and, thus, enhances the quality of the Pareto front. Findings To prove the effectiveness of the proposed method, the authors engage a set of well-known benchmark functions and some well-known rival optimization methods. Additionally, SSLPS is employed for optimal design of shape memory alloy actuator as a nonlinear multi-modal real-world engineering problem. The experiments show the acceptable potential of SSLPS for handling both numerical and engineering multi-objective problems. Originality/value To the author’s best knowledge, the proposed algorithm is among the rare multi-objective methods which fosters the use of automated unsupervised learning for increasing the intensity of Pareto front (while preserving the diversity). Also, the research evaluates the power of hybridization of SI and EA for efficient search.

  • Recursive least squares identification for piecewise affine Hammerstein
           models
    • Pages: 234 - 253
      Abstract: International Journal of Intelligent Computing and Cybernetics, Volume 11, Issue 2, Page 234-253, June 2018.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to probe the recursive identification of piecewise affine Hammerstein models directly by using input-output data. To explain the identification process of a parametric piecewise affine nonlinear function, the authors prove that the inverse function corresponding to the given piecewise affine nonlinear function is also an equivalent piecewise affine form. Based on this equivalent property, during the detailed identification process with respect to piecewise affine function and linear dynamical system, three recursive least squares methods are proposed to identify those unknown parameters under the probabilistic description or bounded property of noise. Design/methodology/approach First, the basic recursive least squares method is used to identify those unknown parameters under the probabilistic description of noise. Second, multi-innovation recursive least squares method is proposed to improve the efficiency lacked in basic recursive least squares method. Third, to relax the strict probabilistic description on noise, the authors provide a projection algorithm with a dead zone in the presence of bounded noise and analyze its two properties. Findings Based on complex mathematical derivation, the inverse function of a given piecewise affine nonlinear function is also an equivalent piecewise affine form. As the least squares method is suited under one condition that the considered noise may be a zero mean random signal, a projection algorithm with a dead zone in the presence of bounded noise can enhance the robustness in the parameter update equation. Originality/value To the best knowledge of the authors, this is the first attempt at identifying piecewise affine Hammerstein models, which combine a piecewise affine function and a linear dynamical system. In the presence of bounded noise, the modified recursive least squares methods are efficient in identifying two kinds of unknown parameters, so that the common set membership method can be replaced by the proposed methods.

  • Minimizing assembly variation in selective assembly for auto-body parts
           based on IGAOT
    • Pages: 254 - 268
      Abstract: International Journal of Intelligent Computing and Cybernetics, Volume 11, Issue 2, Page 254-268, June 2018.
      Purpose Dimensional quality of sheet metal assemblies is an important factor for the final product. However, the part tolerance is not easily controlled because of the spring back deformation during the stamping process. Selective assembly is a means to decrease assembly tolerance of the assembly from low-precision components. Therefore, the purpose of this paper is to propose a fully efficient method of selective assembly optimization based on an improved genetic algorithm for optimization toolbox (IGAOT) in MATLAB. Design/methodology/approach The method of influence coefficient is first applied to calculate the assembly variation of sheet metal components since the traditional rigid assembly variation model cannot be used due to welding deformation. Afterwards, the IGAOT is proposed to generate optimal selective groups, which consists of advantages of genetic algorithm for optimization toolbox (GAOT) and simulated annealing. Findings The cases of two simple planes and the tail lamp bracket assembly are used to illustrate the flowchart of optimizing combinations of selective groups. These cases prove that the proposed IGAOT has better precision than that of GAOT with the same parameters for selective assembly. Originality/value The research objective of this paper is to evaluate the changes from rigid bodies to sheet metal parts which are very complex for selective assembly. The method of IGAOT was proposed to the selected groups which has better precision than that of current optimization algorithms.

  • A study of PID and L1 adaptive control for automatic balancing of a
           spacecraft three-axis simulator
    • Pages: 269 - 284
      Abstract: International Journal of Intelligent Computing and Cybernetics, Volume 11, Issue 2, Page 269-284, June 2018.
      Purpose The three-axis simulator relies on the air film between the air bearing and the bearing seat to achieve weightlessness and the frictionless motion condition, which is essential for simulating the micro-disturbance torque of a satellite in outer space. However, at the beginning of the experiment, the disturbance torque caused by the misalignment between the center of gravity of the simulator and the center of rotation of the bearing is the most important factor restricting the use of the space three-axis simulator. In order to solve this problem, it is necessary to set the balance adjustment system on the simulator to compensate the disturbance torque caused by the eccentricity. The paper aims to discuss these issues. Design/methodology/approach In this paper, a study of L1 adaptive automatic balancing control method for micro satellite with motor without other actuators is proposed. L1 adaptive control algorithm adds the low-pass filter to the control law, which in a certain sense to reduce the high-frequency signal and speed up the response time of the controlled system. At the same time, by estimating the adaptive parameter uncertainty in object, the output error of the state predictor and the controlled object can be stabilized under Lyapunov condition, and the robustness of the system is also improved. The automatic balancing method of PID is also studied in this paper. Findings Through this automatic balancing mechanism, the gravity disturbance torque can be effectively reduced down to 10−6 Nm, and the automatic balancing time can be controlled within 7 s. Originality/value This paper introduces an automatic balancing mechanism. The experimental results show that the mechanism can greatly improve the convergence speed while guaranteeing the control accuracy, and ensuring the feasibility of the large angle maneuver of spacecraft three-axis simulator.

  • Two-layer supply chain model for Cauchy-type stochastic demand under fuzzy
           environment
    • Pages: 285 - 308
      Abstract: International Journal of Intelligent Computing and Cybernetics, Volume 11, Issue 2, Page 285-308, June 2018.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to deal with profit maximization problem of two-layer supply chain (SC) under fuzzy stochastic demand having finite mean and unknown variance. Buyback policy is employed from the retailer to supplier. The profit of the supplier solely depends on the order size of the retailers. However, the loss of shortage items is related to loss of profit and goodwill dependent. The authors develop the profit function separately for both the retailer and supplier, first, for a decentralized system and, second, joining them, the authors get a centralized system (CS) of decision making, in which one is giving more profit to both of them. The problem is solved analytically first, then the authors fuzzify the model and solve by fuzzy Hausdorff distance method. Design/methodology/approach The analytical models are formed for both centralized and decentralized systems under non-cooperative and cooperative environment with suitable constraints. A significant assumption on density function, namely Cauchy-type density function, is introduced for demand rate because of its wider range of the retailers’ satisfactions. Fuzzy Hausdorff metric is incorporated within the fuzzy components of the fuzzy sets itself. Using this method, the authors find out closure values of both centralized and decentralized policies, which is an essential part of any cooperative and non-cooperative two-layer SC models. Moreover, the authors take care of the profit values with corresponding ambiguities for both the systems explicitly. Findings It is found that the centralize policy of SC could only be able to maximize the profit of both the retailers and suppliers. All analytical results are illustrated numerically along with sensitivity analysis and side by side comparative studies between Hausdorff and Euclidean distance measure are done exclusively. Research limitations/implications The main focus of attention of the proposed model is given to usefulness of Hausdorff distance. Unlike other distances, Hausdorff distance can take special care on the similarity measures of different fuzzy sets. Researchers have been engaged to use Hausdorff distance on the different fuzzy sets but, in this study, the authors have used it within the components of a same fuzzy set to gain more closure values than other methods. Originality/value The use of this Hausdorff distance approach is totally new as per literature survey suggested yet. However, the Cauchy-type density function has not been introduced anywhere in SC management problems by modern researchers still now. In crisp model, the sensitivity on goodwill measures really provides a special attention also.

  • A fuzzy trust-based routing model for mitigating the misbehaving nodes in
           mobile ad hoc networks
    • Pages: 309 - 340
      Abstract: International Journal of Intelligent Computing and Cybernetics, Volume 11, Issue 2, Page 309-340, June 2018.
      Purpose Security is one of the major challenges in the design and implementation of protocols for mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs). In such systems, the cooperation between nodes is one of the important principles being followed in the current research works to formulate various security protocols. Many existing works assume that mobile nodes will follow prescribed protocols without deviation. However, this is not always the case, because these networks are subjected to a variety of malicious attacks. Since there are various models of attack, trust routing scheme can guarantee security and trust of the network. The purpose of this paper is to propose a novel trusted routing model for mitigating attacks in MANETs. Design/methodology/approach The proposed model incorporates the concept of trust into the MANETs and applies grey relational analysis theory combined with fuzzy sets to calculate a node’s trust level based on observations from neighbour nodes’ trust level, these trust levels are then used in the routing decision-making process. Findings In order to prove the applicability of the proposed solution, extensive experiments were conducted to evaluate the efficiency of the proposed model, aiming at improving the network interaction quality, malicious node mitigation and enhancements of the system’s security. Originality/value The proposed solution in this paper is a new approach combining the fundamental basics of fuzzy sets with the grey theory, where establishment of trust relationships among participating nodes is critical in order to enable collaborative optimisation of system metrics. Experimental results indicate that the proposed method is useful for reducing the effects of malicious nodes and for the enhancements of system’s security.
