    Qinqin Fan1,*, Yilian Zhang2, Zhihuan Wang1
    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.26, No.1, pp. 1-12, 2020, DOI:10.31209/2018.100000042
    Abstract Weak global exploration capability is one of the primary drawbacks in teaching learning based optimization (TLBO). To enhance the search capability of TLBO, an improved TLBO (ITLBO) is introduced in this study. In ITLBO, a uniform random number is replaced by a normal random number, and a weighted average position of the current population is chosen as the other teacher. The performance of ITLBO is compared with that of five meta-heuristic algorithms on a well-known test suite. Results demonstrate that the average performance of ITLBO is superior to that of the compared algorithms. Finally, ITLBO is employed to estimate parameters… More >

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.26, No.1, pp. 13-25, 2020, DOI:10.31209/2018.100000047
    Abstract An efficient placement of virtual machines (VMs) in a cloud datacenter is important to maximize the utilization of infrastructure. Most of the existing work maximises the number of VMs to place on a minimum number of physical machines (PMs) to reduce energy consumption. Recently, big data applications become popular which are mostly hosted on cloud datacenters. Big data applications are deployed on multiple VMs and considered data and communication intensive applications. These applications can consume most of the datacenter bandwidth if VMs do not place close to each other. In this paper, we investigate the use of different VM placement… More >

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.26, No.1, pp. 27-39, 2020, DOI:10.31209/2018.100000062
    Abstract Model predictive control (MPC), owing to the capability of dealing with nonlinear and constrained problems, is quite promising for optimization. Different MPC strategies are investigated to optimize HEV nonlinear energy management for better fuel economy. Based on Bellman’s principle, dynamic programming is firstly used in the limited horizon to obtain optimal solutions. By considering MPC as a nonlinear programming problem, sequential quadratic programming (SQP) is used to obtain the descent directions of control variables and the current control input is further derived. To reduce computation and meet the requirements of real-time control, the nonlinear model of the system is approximated… More >

    Soo-Kyun Kim1, Chang-Hee Lee2, Sun-Jeong Kim2, Chang-Geun Song2, Jung Lee2,*
    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.26, No.1, pp. 99-105, 2020, DOI:10.31209/2019.100000131
    Abstract Recently, the development of HMDs such as Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and PSVR has led to an increase in the interest of people in virtual reality (VR), and many related studies have been published. This leads to an additional cost increase in configuring the VR system. Also, space problems are caused. When the treadmill is installed, additional space is required, which may adversely affect the popularization of VR. In this paper, we propose a local area VR environment that solves cost and space problems using human tracking using several Kinect and solves the hygiene problems using smartphone-based mobile HMD.

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.26, No.1, pp. 133-139, 2020, DOI:10.31209/2019.100000134
    Abstract Biometric user authentication using the face has been applied mainly to access control systems. However, access is allowed even when a photo is presented instead of an actual face. This can facilitate illegal access including attending as a substitute or substitute authentication. An alternative approach has been implemented to solve this problem. The approach determines between a real face and a photo of a face using a UV sensor but this requires substantial cost and installation process because additional hardware (the UV sensor) is necessary. This paper proposes a three-step approach to identify between a real image and a photo.… More >
