Research

Bayesian network based diagnosis and control system(1999-2000)

Our ultimate research objective is to develop control systems for xerographic printers and copiers capable of generating high quality color prints despite system faults and component degradation. 

A Bayesian Belief Network (BBN) model of  was developed for the xerographic printing process. It is intended for the diagnosis of system faults and component degradation and eventually for the reconfiguration of the control system to operate under degraded conditions. 

Here is the abstract of the paper discribing our intermediate result.

Swimming Machine (1998)

In this project, my responsibilities were designing the structure, choosing   motors with appropriate power and torque outputs, selecting encoder, decoder and I/O board,  and constructing a close-loop mechatronic system. 

There are still intensive investigation the subject in our laboratory, please refer to Human powered swimming machine page. 

A New Approach to Generate Fuzzy System (1996)

A complicated multiple input single output fuzzy system can be obtained from combination of several single input single output systems by a mathematically approved method named the Fuzzy System Decomposing and Combining Theorem developed  A new optimisation algorithm, the Float Coding Based Genetic Algorithm is employed to optimise the parameters of corresponding fuzzy subsystems arranged in the structures of neural networks. 

Here is the rewrite of the paper published on Proceeding of the IEEE  International Symposium on Control Theory and Application.

PC Aided Signal Processing On CF-350 FFT Analyser(1994)

This is my undergraduate thesis. A windows based signal processing software was developed to facilitate and utilise functionalities of a FFT analyser. It was programmed in C. GPIB interface was employed in communication between PC and the FFT analyser.
 

Teaching

Currently, I am teaching assistant for senior lab ME4231 Motion Control.

This lab is a new and comprehensive mechatronicslab. The instructors are Prof. Nelson and Prof. Stelson. Students get hand-on experience of C programming, I/O, encoder/decoder handling, controller design and implementation. The lab is designed to concentrate on the control strategy of moving a linear stage with popular applications in industry, such as automation and robotics.  Another focus of the lab is  process control design, students learn to how  use programmable logic controller to implement some interesting processes, such as traffic lights control, procedures of washing machine, etc.
