Applications of fuzzy logic (FL) to power electronics and drives are on the rise. The paper discusses some representative applications of FL in the area, preceded by an interpretative review of fuzzy logic controller (FLC) theory. A discussion on design and implementation aspects is presented, that also considers the interaction of neural networks and fuzzy(More)
The purpose of this study is to adapt and embed a navigation system and control mobile robots, based on nonlinear model predictive formation control (NMPFC), in a low-cost commercially available board. The system must provide sufficient computational resources so that the robot is able to converge, without losing performance, using the same prediction and(More)
Level Shifters (LS) are essential components of integrated circuits with multiple power supply. They work as voltage scaling interfaces between different power domains. In this paper, we present an energy-efficient level shifter with low area topology. It requires only one power rail and can operate nearby the threshold voltage. We validated the proposed(More)
This paper presents a case study regarding the use of the ThreadControl Testing Framework to test asynchronous information systems. This framework is intended to help test developers to avoid false positives in the execution of their automatic tests for asynchronous systems. Some of these false positives occur because the tests fail in some executions due(More)
