Developing techniques for mobile robot navigation constitutes one of the major trends in the current research on mobile robotics. This paper develops a local model network (LMN) for mobile robot navigation. The LMN represents the mobile robot by a set of locally valid submodels that are Multi-Layer Perceptrons (MLPs). Training these submodels employs Back(More)
Greenhouses provide a protected environment in which crops can be grown under a tightly controlled climate. The efficiency of plant production in greenhouses depends significantly on the adjustment of optimal climate growth conditions to achieve high production at low expense, good quality and low environment load. To achieve these goals several components,(More)
Real time industrial control systems usually are multidimensional structure. They have complex, uncertain and time varying dynamics. Much researches have been conducted on developing suitable controllers, however, these controllers were multi-loop controllers that neglect the interactions of the controlled processes states. This paper introduces a(More)
The paper focuses on the application of fuzzy neural techniques in fault detection and isolation of single failures in greenhouses. The objective of this paper is to detect and isolate faults in greenhouses, with emphasis on faults occurred in actuators and sensors. The developed method is based on a comparison between the measured greenhouse climate and(More)
The Genetic Algorithm (GA) has the superiority over classical optimization algorithms in finding the optimal (global) solution in multi-parameter search space. Because it simultaneously evaluates many points in the parameters space, it is more likely to converge toward the global solution. It need not assume that the search space differentiable or(More)
In this paper, the idea of fertilizing fuzzy neural networks with wavelets is borrowed and enhanced to introduce a novel neural network named Auto Regressive eXogenous Local Model (ARX-LM) network. The enhanced network has a set of notable features compared with previous published fertilized networks. These features can be summarized as follows. First, the(More)
