    ABSTRACT: A novel path planner is presented for the local path planning of a single robot (represented with R) in a complicated dynamic environment. Here a series of attractive points are computed based on attractive segments for guiding R to move along a shorter path. Each attractive segment is obtained by using the full environmental knowledge and will be used for several sampling times in general. A motion controller, which is designed based on artificial moments and a robot model that has a principal motion direction line(PMDline), makes R move closely to attractive points while away from obstacles. Attractive and repulsive moments are designed, which only make R's PMDline face toward attractive points and opposite to obstacles in general, as in most cases, R will move along its PMDline with its full speed. Because of the guidance of attractive points and R's full-speed motion, the global convergence is guaranteed. Simulations indicate that the proposed path planner meets the requirements of real-time property while can optimize R's traveling path.

    ABSTRACT: Watermarking techniques have been proposed as an effective method to protecting the copyright of multimedia data. At present, a large proportion of the watermarking algorithms embed the grey image into the carrier image. In this paper, a watermarking algorithm for color images based on wavelet analysis is proposed. The algorithm scrambled the original watermark image in pretreatment, and used the wavelet transform to process the carrier image and the scrambled watermark image. Then the color watermarked image was embedded into the low-frequency discrete wavelet coefficient of the color carrier image. The experimental results demonstrate that the algorithm can assure the security of the watermark image, and the watermark image has good invisibility and strong robustness for common signal processing and attack.

    ABSTRACT: LED lighting, as a new type of lighting, has already been widely used. High reliability LED depends on drive control circuit to obtain steady electric current to make LED lighting more stable and uniform. In this paper, anti-surge and EMC were designed on the basis of LED high reliability power supply. In order to simplify the circuit and achieve good power factor and efficiency, a 15W flyback power was also designed by using chip LNK406EG. Experiments verified that the power supply made in this paper can get good power factor, small loss, steady output and high efficiency.

    ABSTRACT: Moving objects tracking is the important content in the field of computer vision and is also the basic for the constituent work such as behavior comprehension, etc.. Moving objects tracking has wide applications in many fields. This paper tracked the moving car and pedestrian at real time based on Kalman filter. Experiment results showed that the Kalman filter can accurately estimate parameters of the object,such as the next position and velocity etc., which will offer much more facilities to the followed works like correspondence matching and so on.

    ABSTRACT: Image gathering and transmission system is the important part of banknote sorts and should have high properties of real-time and steady reliability. With the development and the popularization of Internet, more embedded system should support the function of Internet. The traditional TCP/IP protocol is too complex and takes too much resource. This paper designed a new banknote image gathering and transmission system. At the hardware aspect, it realized a banknote image gathering and transmission system with many expansion interfaces, based on the Texas Instrument Incorporated (TI)'s Davinci dual-core processor TMS320DM6446. At the software aspect, it developed network function application procedure based on the platform. The TCP/IP protocol was simplified. Keywords—Davinci, TCP/IP, banknote

    ABSTRACT: Due to the advent of network and computer technology, there has been an explosion in the use of digital media through electronic commerce and on-line services. The increasing importance of watermarking technologies is proved by the need of very efficient methods in data security including copyright protection, data integrity detection. Existing digital watermarking algorithms are mostly designed for gray images but many are not for color images. This paper presents some color image watermark methods proposed in recent years so as to give help for researchers to study deeply.

    ABSTRACT: In the movement of multiple robots, the robot formation is one of the important attributes of colony activities. It has an important significance to recognize robot formations for evaluating the spot situation and making decisions. A new algorithm is proposed in this paper for recognition of robot linear formations. On the basis of pre-processing, (that is, each robot is segmented from the spot and expressed with center of mass which is binarized), the property is extracted by Hough transform. In the end, formation recognition is realized by dot matching according to the affine transform and particle swarm optimization (PSO). The simulation shows that the algorithm is effective.

    ABSTRACT: This paper proposes algorithms of image features extaction and identification by using seeking optimization capability of ant colony algorithm. The feature vectors of the identified images are regarded as the inputs of ant colony algorithm based on the information entropy. By the algorithms proposed by this paper, the features which cost the least time and whose identification effect are the best are selected under the precondition of identifying images correctly and then the images are identified. Experiments show that the algorithms are effective.

    ABSTRACT: A multi-objective mathematical model and an improved Genetic Algorithm (GA) are formulated for storage location assignment of the fixed rack system. According to the assignment rules, the optimization aim is to maximize the storage/retrieval efficiency and to keep the stability of the rack system. The improved GA with Pareto optimization and Niche Technology are developed. The approach considers Pareto solution sets with the traditional operators, while the Niche Technology distributes the solutions uniformly in Pareto solution sets. The realization of the approach ensures storage location assignment optimization and offers a dynamic decision making scheme for automated storage and retrieval system (AS/RS).
