Hierarchical robot path planning using a distributed blackboard
Hierarchical path planning techniques for Intelligent Autonomous Mobile Robots (IAMRs) attempt to subdivide the overall task of path planning into several layers. This subdivision is made more difficult by the physical ...
Stability and performance robustness of discrete-time systems with structured uncertainty
The robustness of discrete-time systems in the presence of norm-bounded linear time-varying and/or nonlinear perturbations is addressed. A general framework for dealing with stability as well as performance robustness of ...
Binaural localization using interaural cues
Major nuclei of the superior olivary complex--the lateral superior olive (LSO) and the medial superior olive (MSO) are presumed to play a major role in the localization of sound signals using interaural level and interaural ...
Simulation of shared memory parallel systems
This thesis describes a method to simulate parallel programs written for shared memory multiprocessors. We have extended execution-driven simulation to facilitate the simulation of shared memory. We have developed a shared ...
Performance evaluation and optimization of stochastic systems via importance sampling
Analytic solutions to determining the optimal set of system parameters and the associated performance of random input systems are typically intractable. One often only has access to the system's output under a variety of ...
The wavelet transforms and time-scale analysis of signals
Orthonormal wavelet bases provide an alternative technique for the analysis of non-stationary signals. Unlike the Gabor representation, the basis functions in the wavelet representation all have the same band width on a ...
