Numerical Study of Localization Failure in Structural Steel Under Impact Loading
High quality steels are used as a skeleton supporting many infrastructure constructions like, for example, skyscrapers, arenas, stadiums, bridges and others. The likelihood that these structures could be severely damaged ...
A Navigation and Control System for a Robot in Indoor/Outdoor Environments
This thesis presents an approach to solving the global navigation problem of wheeled mobile robots in indoor and outdoor environments. The presented solutions are based on probabilistic approaches. In outdoor environment, ...

Multi-Robot Map Exploration Based on Multiple Rapidly-Exploring Randomized Trees
Efficient robotic navigation requires a predefined map. In order to autonomously acquire a map, it is desired that robots have the ability to explore unknown environments with minimum cost and time, while ensuring complete ...
A Navigation System for Indoor/Outdoor Environments with an Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV)
This thesis presents an approach for solving the global navigation problem of wheeled mobile robots. The presented solution for outdoor navigation uses Extended Kalman Filter (EKF) to estimate the robot location based on ...
Nonlinear Friction Identification of A Linear Voice Coil DC Motor
Friction is a nonlinear phenomenon that has a major effect on the performance of servomechanisms and positioning systems such as CNC machines, robot manipulators, printers and disk drives. For this reason, accurate knowledge ...
Mazari UAV Adaptive Autopilot System Design and Implementation
Autonomous unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) research started at AUS in 2005. Linear and nonlinear aircraft models and system identification of the aircraft system were developed to design flight control laws. Proportional-i ...
Effect of Concrete Type on Flexural Behavior of Concrete Beams Reinforced with HSS Bars
High-Strength Steel (HSS) bars can be a promising alternative to commonly used mild steel since they have the potential of making more efficient use of highperformance concrete and reducing the required number and size of ...
Design of Robust Controllers for a Rotary Wing Helicopter
Due to inherent instability, parametric variations, changing properties during flight, and uncertainties in predicting aerodynamic coefficients, helicopter flight control requires strategies with enough robustness to cope ...
Autonomous Robot Navigation Based On Recurrent Neural Networks
The main objective of this research is to present a reactive navigation algorithm for wheeled mobile robots under non-holonomic constraints and in unknown environments. Two techniques are proposed: a geometrical based ...
