—Automatic recognition of gestures using computer vision is important for many real-world applications such as sign language recognition and human-robot interaction (HRI). Our goal is a real-time hand gesture-based HRI interface for mobile robots. We use a state-of-the-art big and deep neural network (NN) combining convolution and max-pooling (MPCNN) for(More)

In recent years, due to privatization and deregulation of the power industry, accurate electricity(More)
—We introduce Convolutional Neural Support Vector Machines (CNSVMs), a combination of two heterogeneous supervised classification techniques, Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) and Support Vector Machines (SVMs). CNSVMs are trained using a Stochastic Gradient Descent approach, that provides the computational capability of online incremental learning and(More)
—Automatic recognition of people is a challenging problem which has received much attention during recent years due to its many applications in different fields. Face recognition is one of those challenging problems and up to date, there is no technique that provides a robust solution to all situations. This paper presents a new technique for human face(More)

A new fuzzy bang–bang relay controller (FBBRC) is introduced in this paper. The new controller is inherently optimal due to its bang–bang property. The controller has fuzzy decision-making capability in its inputs and have two fixed levels bang–bang output. Consequently, the tuning of FBBRC is restricted to input parameters only in comparison to standard(More)
