The developed controller is a multiple-input–multiple-output (MIMO) system. However, with the proposed control mechanism is possible to adapt it to single-input–single-output [...] Read more.
This paper presents a systematic approach to designing a dynamic metaheuristic fuzzy logic controller (FLC) to control a piece of non-linear plant. The developed controller is a multiple-input–multiple-output (MIMO) system. However, with the proposed control mechanism is possible to adapt it to single-input–single-output (SISO) systems as well. During real-time operation, the dynamic behavior of the proposed fuzzy controller is influenced by a metaheuristic particle swarm optimization (PSO) mechanism. Nevertheless, to analyze the performance of the developed dynamic metaheuristic FLC as a piece of non-linear plant, a 1 kW four-wheel independent-drive electric rover is controlled under different road constraints. The test results show that the proposed dynamic metaheuristic FLC maintains the wheel slip ratio of all four wheels to less than 0.35 and a top recorded translational speed of 90 km/h is maintained for a fixed orientation.

The goal of this paper is to highlight the advantage fulfilled by a novel engine mechanism, the concept of which is based on an oscillating arm relative to the classical engine mechanism. Further, the results of this paper demonstrate the benefits of a novel type of mechanism and the major advantages in terms of functioning parameters of an engine. Their performances highly depend on the joint positions of the oscillating arm. The increases in the functional performances rate of success (i.e., piston stroke, volume of the combustion chamber or compression ratio) enable a superior engine power parameter (higher power, torque) and bring some additional improvement on the eco parameters of the engine related to consumption, emission, etc. Full article

Most vehicle controllers are developed and verified with V-model. There are several traditional methods in the automotive industry called “X-in-the-Loop (XIL)”. However, the validation of advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) controllers is more complicated and needs more environmental resources because the controller interacts with the external environment of the vehicle. Vehicle-in-the-Loop (VIL) is a recently being developed approach for simulating ADAS vehicles that ensures the safety of critical test scenarios in real-world testing using virtual environments. This new test method needs both properties of traditional computer simulations and real-world vehicle tests. This paper presents a Vehicle-in-the-Loop topology for execution in global Coordinates system. Also, it has a modular structure with four parts: synchronization module, virtual environment, sensor emulator and visualizer, so each part can be developed and modified separately in combination with other parts. This structure of VIL is expected to save maintenance time and cost. This paper shows its acceptability by testing ADAS on both a real and the VIL system. Full article
