In this paper, we consider synchronization of N identical nonlinear systems unidirectionally or bidirectionally coupled with time delay. First we show, using the small-gain theorem, that trajectories of coupled strictly semi-passive systems converge to a bounded region. Next, we consider the network structure under which the synchronization error dynamics(More)
This paper considers the stabilization problem for nonlinear retarded systems. The author has already proposed a finite spectrum assignment method for nonlinear retarded systems by extending the finite spectrum assignment for linear systems over commutative rings. In this paper, introducing a state predictor based on anticipating synchronization, we propose(More)
In this paper, we address the tracking control problem for a unicycle-type mobile robot which is remotely controlled by a two-channel, delay-inducing communication network. A predictor-based control strategy capable of controlling the negative effects of the time-delay is proposed. Moreover, conditions are provided guaranteeing the local or global(More)
In the present study, a sliding mode control design method based on the finite spectrum assignment procedure is proposed. The finite spectrum assignment for retarded nonlinear systems can transform retarded nonlinear systems into delay-free linear systems via a variable transformation and a feedback, which contain the past values of the state. This method(More)
We described a new preteaching method for re-inforcement learning using a self-organizing map (SOM). The purpose is to increase the learning rate using a small amount of teaching data generated by a human expert. In our proposed method, the SOM is used to generate the initial teaching data for the reinforcement learning agent from a small amount of teaching(More)
