    Application of LabVIEW® and SoildWorks®- based Simulation Technique to Hybrid Motion Blending of a 6-axis Articulated Robot Price 2.99  |  2.99 Rewards Points

    In general, the movement strategy of industrial robots can be divided into two kinds, PTP (Point to Point) and CP (Continuous Path). In order to cope with high-speed handling of the cooperation of industrial robots with machine tools or other devices, CP should be implemented so as to reduce vibration and noise, as well as decreasing travel time. In this paper, we will realize CP motion (especially hybrid motion) blending in 3-dimensional space for a 6-axis articulated (lab-manufactured) robot (called as “RS2”) by using LabVIEW® programming, based on a parametric interpolation.

    Persistence of Plummer-Distributed Small Globular Clusters as a Function of Primordial- Binary Population Size Price 2.99  |  2.99 Rewards Points

    Globular stellar clusters are relatively common. All globular clusters that have been observed are relatively large ( ~104 - 106 stars). In the absence of other influences, many if not all globular clusters continually lose mass as stars escape their gravitational hold. It has been hypothesized that the presence of primordial binaries  helps to increase the persistence of small (~1000-star) globular clusters.

In addition, by analogy with the numerical model, we try to prove the existence of a change in energy between aggregate system and single( or unique) system. Conceptualize the possibility that a system, with identical entities, has a form of unobservable energy.

    A combined algorithm for analyzing structural controllability and observability of complex networks Price 2.99  |  2.99 Rewards Points

    In this paper a combined algorithm for analyzing structural controllability and observability of complex networks is presented. The algorithm addresses the two fundamental properties to guarantee structural controllability of a system: the absence of dilations and the accessibility of all nodes. The first problem is reformulated as a Maximum Matching search and it is addressed via the Hopcroft-Karp algorithm; the second problem is solved via a new wiring algorithm. Both algorithms can be combined to efficiently determine the number of required controllers and observers as well as the new required connections in order to guarantee controllability and observability in real complex networks. An application to a Twitter social network with over 100,000 nodes illustrates the proposed algorithms.

    Neighbourhood and Number of States dependence of the Transient Period and Cluster Patterns in Cyclic Cellular Automata Price 2.99  |  2.99 Rewards Points

    Cellular automata provide a valuable platform for exploring complex and emergent behaviour. We explore the sensitivity to different neighbourhoods and different number of cellular states of the Cyclic Cellular Automata. This model produces complex kaleidoscopic repeating patterns a short transient period after being initialised randomly. We use component labelling metrics and appropriately chosen ratios to characterise the different model regimes for nearest, next-nearest and Moore neighbourhoods and for a range of allowable cellular states. We discuss the emergent macroscopic behaviours averaged over many independent trajectories through model space and the transition in behaviours.
