    A Reverse Path Planning Approach for Enhanced Performance of Multi-Degree-of-Freedom Industrial Manipulators

    Zhiwei Lin1, Hui Wang1,*, Tianding Chen1, Yingtao Jiang2, Jianmei Jiang3, Yingpin Chen1

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.139, No.2, pp. 1357-1379, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2023.045990

    Abstract In the domain of autonomous industrial manipulators, precise positioning and appropriate posture selection in path planning are pivotal for tasks involving obstacle avoidance, such as handling, heat sealing, and stacking. While Multi-Degree-of-Freedom (MDOF) manipulators offer kinematic redundancy, aiding in the derivation of optimal inverse kinematic solutions to meet position and posture requisites, their path planning entails intricate multi-objective optimization, encompassing path, posture, and joint motion optimization. Achieving satisfactory results in practical scenarios remains challenging. In response, this study introduces a novel Reverse Path Planning (RPP) methodology tailored for industrial manipulators. The approach commences by conceptualizing… More > Graphic Abstract

    Ion dynamics and Manipulation Under Extreme Confinement

    Yahui Xue1,*

    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.27, No.2, pp. 1-1, 2023, DOI:10.32604/icces.2023.09724

    Abstract Ion dynamics and precise control in nanochannels play key roles in biological systems, energy conversation, and environmental engineering. However, the mechanics behaviors of ions and their manipulation mechanism under extreme confinement remain largely unexplored. Biological ion channels acting as life’s transistors can gate simultaneously fast and selective ion transport through atomic-scale filters to maintain vital life functions. This biological inspiration motivates the quest for artificial structures with simultaneous functions of ion selectivity, fast transport and electrical gating at the atomic scale. Here, we experimentally investigate the ion dynamics and electrical manipulation in graphene channels of… More >

    Frequency-Multiplexed Acoustic Metasurfaces Based on Multiobjective Topology Optimization

    Haoyi Cheng1, Jingwen Guo1, Wenjing Ye1.*, Xin Zhang1

    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.26, No.2, pp. 1-1, 2023, DOI:10.32604/icces.2023.09237

    Abstract With their thin thicknesses and unprecedent wave manipulation capabilities, acoustic metasurfaces have a great potential to be applied in a wide range of applications. Most existing metasurfaces are passive devices. Although passive devices are easy to implement and consume no energy, one major shortcoming of passive devices is their fixed and limited functionality, which greatly limits their application scope. To increase the functionalities of a metasurface and yet still maintain its passivity, we propose to use the wave frequency as a tuning freedom to realize multiple functionalities in one single passive device. Specifically, the passive More >

    Virtual Manipulation of Tail Postures of a Barn Owl Demonstrates Longitudinal Static Unstability when Gliding

    Changyao Chen1, Jialei Song1,*, Ling Yin1, Yizhe Li2, Zheng Yuan2, Yuhan Li3

    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.25, No.1, pp. 1-1, 2023, DOI:10.32604/icces.2023.09859

    Abstract Bird can switch between high maneuverability and high stability due to its ability to substantially morph wings and tail. Tail as an auxiliary lift surface, plays an important role on lift and drag production and also significantly affects the longitudinal stability. In this study, we reconstruct a high-fidelity barn owl model using the point cloud of its surface obtained from high-speed photogrammetry, and simulate the fluid dynamics using a commercial software. By virtually manipulating the tail to a series of postures, we analyze the aerodynamics and static stability for each tail posture, investigating the strategy More >

    FSA-Net: A Cost-efficient Face Swapping Attention Network with Occlusion-Aware Normalization

    Zhipeng Bin1, Huihuang Zhao1,2,*, Xiaoman Liang1,2, Wenli Chen1

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.37, No.1, pp. 971-983, 2023, DOI:10.32604/iasc.2023.037270

    Abstract The main challenges in face swapping are the preservation and adaptive superimposition of attributes of two images. In this study, the Face Swapping Attention Network (FSA-Net) is proposed to generate photorealistic face swapping. The existing face-swapping methods ignore the blending attributes or mismatch the facial keypoint (cheek, mouth, eye, nose, etc.), which causes artifacts and makes the generated face silhouette non-realistic. To address this problem, a novel reinforced multi-aware attention module, referred to as RMAA, is proposed for handling facial fusion and expression occlusion flaws. The framework includes two stages. In the first stage, a More >
