• Improved U-Net-Based Novel Segmentation Algorithm for Underwater Mineral Image
  • Abstract Autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) has many intelligent optical system, which can collect underwater signal information to make the system decision. One of them is the intelligent vision system, and it can capture the images to analyze. The performance of the particle image segmentation plays an important role in the monitoring of underwater mineral resources. In order to improve the underwater mineral image segmentation performance, some novel segmentation algorithm architectures are proposed. In this paper, an improved mineral image segmentation is proposed based on the modified U-Net. The pyramid upsampling module and residual module are bring into the U-Net model, which… More

  • Bacterial Foraging Based Algorithm Front-end to Solve Global Optimization Problems
  • Abstract The Bacterial Foraging Algorithm (BFOA) is a well-known swarm collective intelligence algorithm used to solve a variety of constraint optimization problems with wide success. Despite its universality, implementing the BFOA may be complex due to the calibration of multiple parameters. Moreover, the Two-Swim Modified Bacterial Foraging Optimization Algorithm (TS-MBFOA) is a state-of-the-art modification of the BFOA which may lead to solutions close to the optimal but with more parameters than the original BFOA. That is why in this paper we present the design using the Unified Modeling Language (UML) and the implementation in the MATLAB platform of a front-end for… More

  • Actuator Fluid Control Using Fuzzy Feedback for Soft Robotics Activities
  • Abstract Soft robotics is a new field that uses actuators that are non-standard and compatible materials. Industrial robotics is high-throughput manufacturing devices that are quick and accurate. They are built on rigid-body mechanisms. The advancement of robotic production now depends on the inclusion of staff in manufacturing processes, allowing for the completion of activities that need cognitive abilities that are now beyond the scope of artificial networks. Hydrostatic pressure is used to achieve high deflections of structures that are based on the elastomeric in Fluid Actuators (FAs). Soft actuators based on the fluid are a popular choice safe for humans and… More

  • On NSGA-II and NSGA-III in Portfolio Management
  • Abstract To solve single and multi-objective optimization problems, evolutionary algorithms have been created. We use the non-dominated sorting genetic algorithm (NSGA-II) to find the Pareto front in a two-objective portfolio query, and its extended variant NSGA-III to find the Pareto front in a three-objective portfolio problem, in this article. Furthermore, in both portfolio problems, we quantify the Karush-Kuhn-Tucker Proximity Measure (KKTPM) for each generation to determine how far we are from the effective front and to provide knowledge about the Pareto optimal solution. In the portfolio problem, looking for the optimal set of stock or assets that maximizes the mean return… More

  • Fuzzy Logic for Underground Mining Method Selection
  • Abstract The Selection of the mining method for underground minerals extraction is the crucial task for the mining engineers. Underground minerals extraction is a multi-criteria decision making problem due to many criteria to be considered in the selection process. There are many studies on selection of underground mining method using Multi Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) techniques or approaches. Extracting minerals from the underground involves many geological characteristics also called as input parameters. The geological characteristics of any mineral deposit vary from one location to another location. Thus only one mineral extraction method is not suitable for different deposit characteristics. There are… More
