Cerebellum is part of the brain that occupies only 10% of the brain volume, but it contains about 80% of total number of brain neurons. New cerebellar function model is developed that sets cerebellar circuits in context of multibody dynamics model computations, as important step in controlling balance and movement coordination, functions performed...

A tool for unified simultaneous simulation of multiphysics problems based on Partial Element Equivalent Circuit (PEEC) method is presented. Extension of PEEC method with thermal and mechanical domains is based on circuit interpretation of Finite Difference (FD) and Finite Element Method (FEM) equations. Equations in FEM case are derived by Galerkin...

Performance of Partial Element Equivalent Circuit (PEEC) Toolbox for MATLAB for solving coupled electromagnetic-circuit problems is presented. Geometry of the problems to be solved is described with wire-based language, specifically designed for this toolbox, by using predefined basic elements. Meshing function will discretize geometry, or parts of...
Article
Full-text available
Processing in the cerebellum is roughly described as feedforward processing of incoming information over three layers of the cerebellar cortex that send intermediate output to deep cerebellar nuclei, the only output from the cerebellum. Beside this main picture there are several feedback routes, mainly not included in models. In this paper we use n...

Main components of any electrical circuit are a power source that provides energy and a load that will use that energy for fulfilling the designed purpose. Wires are the most common means used to enable this energy transfer. To enable controlled energy transfer switch is used. Unexpected working situation can happen, that can cause rise in power de...

Performance of robot control in trajectory tracking can be improved considerably if robot inverse dynamics model is known. It may be used in feedforward or in computed torque configuration. Cerebellar model controllers can be used to acquire inverse robot dynamics model on-line. In this paper we explore different structural aspects of cerebellar co...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Puzzling about cerebellum is its wide range of functional involvement with its seemingly uniform structure. Late views based on connectivity with other parts of the brain implicate it, from traditional lower level role in balance and coordination of movements, up to cognition and emotional level. Cerebellar models are used in attempts to explain th...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Versions of the proportional-integral-derivative (PID) controllers are most widespread type of controllers used to control plants, in achieving satisfactory performance. Versions of PID controller are also used for controlling robotic plants. With increased speed of operation and more stringent performance requirements PID controller alone will not...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Cerebellar Model Articulation Controller (CMAC) is type of neural network inspired from part of the brain named cerebellum. It has long history in control applications, in simulated or in real-time implementations. MATLAB/Simulink is used for rapid building of CMAC neural network controller prototypes than can run in realtime. To run the controller...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
CMAC neural network has only one adjustable weight layer. Its first layer is fixed and maps input space to association vector through receptive fields. Receptive field of standard CMAC is in shape of square function of given width. Lot of research now is done around different shapes for receptive fields, and combination with other connectionist str...

Partial Element Equivalent Circuit (PEEC) methods, for solving electromagnetic problem ,uses two discretizations, to volume cells for resistive-inductive partitions and to surface cells for capacitive partitions. Three-dimensional (3-D) problem geometry is partitioned to hexahedral volume cells. Around outer surface of these cells, with half-cell s...
Conference Paper

Partial Element Equivalent Circuit (PEEC) method is one of numerical modeling methods for solving electromagnetic problems. Electromagnetic problem to be solved is expressed with electric circuit, and then solved by some standard circuit solver software. To make working on PEEC method more accessible, a PEEC toolbox for MATLAB is created. Toolbox c...

In this paper is presented the precision time protocol (PTP) management with widely used simple network management protocol (SNMP) tool Net-Snmp. PTP is applicable to high precision clock synchronization in local and networked measurement and control systems. By management is meant various parameter settings stored and retrieved from management inf...
Conference Paper
Dynamics of weighing products with irregular forms, like potato chips, with combinatorial weigher is very complex. Many parameters are to be set at their optimal values for efficient and block-less operation. Conveying processes are important part of combinatorial weighing. Conveying is found at vibratory feeders and at supply conveyor. Vibratory f...

Potato chips are product with irregular forms with complex flow dynamics. Packing with narrow tolerance is done by combinatorial weighing machine. For controlling this complex machine it is of great importance to have well designed human-machine interface (HMI). To minimize human intervention on machine operation of great importance is quality of i...

Communication between data acquisition and control systems has always been a concern. Other important issue is building large, integrated, scalable systems. This is due to consisting modules incompatibility. We focus our work on tiny devices, such are microcontrollers, mobile phones, and like; target platform is Corba/e. Intention is making trivial...
