— This paper describes integrated/intelligent hu-manoid robot system for daily-life environment tasks. We have realized complex behaviors of a humanoid robot in daily-life environment based on motion planner technique using an environment and manipulation knowledge. However in order to adapt to unknown or dynamic situations, sensor based behavior variation(More)
— This paper presents the implementation and experimental evaluation of a new current-sharing technique for paralleled power converters. This technique uses information naturally encoded in the switching ripple to achieve current sharing and requires no intercell connections for communicating this information. Practical implementation of the approach is(More)
—This paper describes analytical advances and practical experiences in a nonlinear controller design methodology for series resonant dc/dc converters. The control goal is to maintain the output voltage (which is the only measured variable) in the presence of large-load perturbations by varying the switching frequency. The proposed methodology utilizes(More)
Observing drivers' behaviors by reproducing traffic accidents and conflict situations is important for developing advanced driver assistance systems. For this purpose, driving simulators are frequently used to evaluate the effectiveness of driver assistance systems during product development. However, motion (simulator) sickness can be a serious practical(More)
This paper strengthens the Hopenhayn and Prescott stability theorem for monotone economies. We extend the theorem to a larger class of applications, and develop new perspectives on the nature and causes of stability and instability. In addition, we show that models satisfying the Hopenhayn-Prescott theorem are ergodic, in the sense that sample averages of(More)
