Activities on Intelligent Mechatronic Systems

(A) Intelligent System Monitoring

I have just completed a project with NASA Glenn Research Center on developing an intelligent system to monitor the microgravity environment on-board the International Space Station.  The computer program that I had successfully developed is currently running at the center all the time, which automatically collects data from a satellite, performs Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) analysis, and intelligent pattern classification and recognition.  The output is to predict what events have occurred, how long and how strong their accelerations are, with a degree of confidence.  

International Space Station

(B) Intelligent Fault Diagnosis

Currently, I am working on intelligent fault diagnosis, prognosis and self-reconfiguration techniques for nonlinear dynamic systems.  Unlike the traditional model-based approach, the developed techniques use soft computing techniques, and require no knowledge of system model.   

(C) Contact and Non-Contact Surface Measurement

I collaborated with another professor on developing a system and methodology for on-line free form surface measurement via a fuzzy-logic controlled scanning probe.  To improve the measuring stability and continuity, fuzzy logic control, in lieu of traditional PID control, was employed.  The fuzzy logic controller exhibits the ability to handle uncertainty (i.e. unexpected surface variation).  

Another project has to do with developing an automated inspection system for glass fiber production.  In this project, a PC was used as a host computer and constantly communicating with a PLC to determine when and where to move a CCD camera to a designated position.  The use of a neural network for object classification made on-line image analysis possible. 

In terms of non-contact surface measurement, I have developed a 3D optical measurement technique called Fringe Projection using only one camera, and requiring no image superposition.  Thus, it is simpler in hardware, and less sensitive to vibration.  

(D) Robotics

I designed and built a robot position and force sensor on grippers using two directional strain gages.  The sensor was accomplished by employing plate theory and solving an inverse problem in solid mechanics.  

Later I developed an improved method for on-line calculation and compensation of the static deflection at a robot end effecter, and an efficient technique for finding the desired global optimum of robotic joint displacement.   In addition, I also worked on a project sponsored by Society of Manufacturing Engineering on tolerance specification of robot kinematic parameters using an experimental design techniques - the Taguchi method.

Activities on Design Optimization

Unlike the traditional iteration-based optimization, a simulation-based approach is used to perform fast multidisciplinary design optimization (MDO).  This approach uses Taguchi methods and soft computing techniques, such as fuzzy logic and neural networks.
