Evolutionary algorithms are a very common technique on computational intelligence field. Some algorithms need a huge amount of memory, making them not so trivial to apply on embedded systems. In this work a profile-based approach is proposed and applied in an evolutionary algorithm with some characteristics that allow its use on embedded systems: the(More)
Evolutionary algorithms are very common techniques used in computational intelligence and robotics field applications. Some algorithms need a large amount of memory and processing power, making them difficult to implement into embedded systems. In this work a profile-based approach is proposed and applied in an evolutionary algorithm with some(More)
Vision-based driving systems are embedded systems that commonly have to consider real time constraints. Proposed systems use general purpose computers to execute designed algorithms based on their processing power and reduced designing time. These computers and other sensors are considerably power consuming and considerably increase the final cost of(More)
Garbage recycling and collection problem is an interesting problem that researchers are applying swarm intelligence algorithms to solve. Some previous approaches used particle swarm optimization, immune systems and ant colony optimization algorithms and achieved good results. Ant colony optimization is a well-known swarm intelligence algorithm that is(More)
—Artificial neural networks are a parallel, fault tolerant , robust solution for computational tasks such as associa-tive memories, pattern recognition and function approximation. There are many proposed implementations for artificial neural networks and network's learning algorithms both in hardware and software. Hardware implementation of learning(More)
The LRM Lab activities are focused in the development of research and applications using intelligent mobile robots and vehicles. One of our main research focus is on service robots used to execute tasks into indoor environments based on tele-operation and autonomous navigation for environment monitoring and incident detection, notification and response. The(More)
Operating in critical environments is an extremely desired feature for fault-tolerant embedded systems. In addition, due to design test and validation complexity of these systems, faster and easier development methods are needed. Evolvable Hardware (EHW) is a development technique that, using reconfigurable hardware, builds systems that reconfiguration part(More)
