Abstract [en]

Our research aims to develop an intelligent control system for optimizing the operation of lighting systems in greenhouses with a high proportion of local renewable energy using adaptive control methods, artificial intelligence algorithms and optimization of built-in lighting control. Through this, lighting systems will be optimized, energy consumption will be minimized and the lighting system will be adapted to be able to handle a larger amount of local renewable energy production. Due to the level of complexity, in this paper, we have focused to integrate a climate controlled greenhouse and the solar energy system. In particular, their respective components were selected and integrated by means of a distributed control architecture. As a first approach, the estimation of the solar power production from the solar cell panels was done based on the solar irradiation registered by the solar irradiation sensor embedded in the outdoor climate sensor system from the greenhouse.

Abstract [en]

In the Nordic countries, the snow in the solar panels affects considerably the solar energy production and the detection of its effects can be an issue due to the outdoor climate conditions. Our research aims to develop intelligent control systems for photovoltaic systems that adapts after variable environmental conditions. One of these conditions is the presence of snow or other form of pollution. In this paper, we focus to investigate whether it is possible to detect snow on a solar panel (off-grid) without using additional external sensors as well to investigate how snow affects the efficiency, current and power on a grid-connected solar panel. For this purpose, a set of experiments were proposed and carried out in a PV solar park. © 2021 IEEE.

Abstract [en]

This research aims to develop an automatic unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV)-based indoor environmental monitoring system for the acquisition of data at a very fine scale to detect rapid changes in environmental features of plants growing in greenhouses. Due to the complexity of the proposed research, in this paper we proposed an off-board distributed control system based on visual input for a micro aerial vehicle (MAV) able to hover, navigate, and fly to a desired target location without considerably affecting the effective flight time. Based on the experimental results, the MAV was able to land on the desired location within a radius of about 10 cm from the center point of the landing pad, with a reduction in the effective flight time of about 28%.

Abstract [en]

Energy storage system is important to use electricity effectively from PV solar cell system. One big problem is how to choose business model for setting of Energy storage system. For effective use of energy from PV solar cell and economical use, it is important to select appropriate parameter for setting and compare their cost. In this study, we aim to understand each setting for Energy storage system and calculate cost for each business model to optimize parameter setting. Three business model we tested in this study was Self consumption, Peak shaving and Peak shifting for 4 seasons. We built the simulator by Matlab and find the best parameter to reduce peak at highest mean hour for each month. From results of simulation and calculation, it is found that Peak shaving is best parameter for most seasons, but calculation method from another approach is needed for more detail discussion

Abstract [en]

Our research aims to develop an intelligent robot vehicle with multimodal locomotion capabilities for the forest monitoring purpose. Due to the complexity of the proposed research, in this paper, we proposed a visual-based control system; capable to detect fiducial markers and pose estimation even with limited capabilities and transmission losses, in order to hover, navigate and fly to the desired target location while remaining stable without adversely affecting the effective flight time due to additional sensors and computation. Based on the experimental results, the MAV was able to detect the fiducial markers with a success ratio of about 92.8% as well as to land on the desired location within a radius of about 10 cm from the center-point of the landing pad, with a reduction of the effective flight time of about 28%.

Abstract [en]

Our research aims at developing a meal-assistance robot with vision system and multi-gripper that enables frail elderly to live more independently. This paper presents a development of a chopstick-type gripper for a meal-assistance robot, which is capable of adapting its shape and contact force with the target food according to the size and the stiffness. By solely using position control of the driving motor, the above feature is enabled without relying on force sensors. The gripper was designed based on the concept of planar 2-DOF under-actuated mechanism composed of a pair of four-bar chains having a torsion spring at one of the passive joints. To clarify the gripping motion and relationship among the contact force, food’s size and stiffness, and gripping position, kineto-elasto-static analysis of the mechanism was carried out. It was found from the result of the analysis that the mechanism was able to change its gripping force according to the contact position with the target object, and this mechanical characteristic was utilized in its grasp planning in which the position for the gripping the object was determined to realize a simple control system, and sensitivity of the contact force due to the error of the stiffness value was revealed. Using a three-dimensional (3D) printed prototype, an experiment to measure the gripping force by changing the contact position was conducted to validate the mechanism feature that can change its gripping force according to the size and the stiffness and the contact force from the analysis results. Finally, the gripper prototype was implemented to a 6-DOF robotic arm and an experiment to grasp real food was carried out to demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed grasp planning.

Abstract [en]

This workshop is dedicated to discuss and explore the specific interdisciplinary aspects of Bodily human robot interaction, and establish a common ground for this area as a recognized and continued research topic. Bodily interaction with robots and robotic devices is partially established in niche applications such as exoskeletons, assistive devices and advanced machines for physical training where bodily interaction is the application. Bodily interaction is expected to develop a broader role in human robot interaction, for instance in manufacturing and in social and entertainment robotics. The direct exchange of force and motion in bodily interaction create a range of engineering challenges, but also entwine engineering directly with topics that traditionally reside in the realm of health and humanistic science, from biomechanics to human's social responses to the prompting and responses of physical interaction.
