Sophisticated fuzzy rule systems are supposed to be flexible, complete, consistent and compact (FC(3)). Flexibility, and consistency are essential for fuzzy systems to exhibit an excellent performance and to have a clear physical meaning, while compactness is crucial when the number of the input variables increases. However, the completeness and consistency(More)
— Systems for automated image analysis are useful for a variety of tasks and their importance is still growing due to technological advances and an increase of social acceptance. Especially in the field of driver assistance systems the progress in science has reached a level of high performance. Fully or partly autonomously guided vehicles, particularly for(More)
We measured reflectance changes by means of optical imaging of intrinsic signals to study the topography of the paw representations in rat somatosensory cortex. Following circumscribed tactile stimulation of single digits or pads, we found large and partially overlapping areas of reflectance changes (delta R). The diameters of their focal zones defined at(More)
If one eye sees a bright field on a dark surround while a homogeneous background is presented to the other eye, then a distinct dark zone appears at the outer borders of the field. If the surround is coloured, then the zone is of corresponding hue. The effect disappears if the edge of the field can be fused with a bar of appropriate contrast. The influence(More)
— Since the potential of soft-computing for driver assistance systems has been recognized, much effort has been spent in the development of appropriate techniques for robust lane detection, object classification, tracking, and representation of task relevant objects. For such systems in order to be able to perform their tasks the environment must be sensed(More)
The appropriate choice of the genotype ! phenotype mapping in combination with the mutation operator is important for a successful evolutionary search process. We suggest a measure to quantify the quality of this combination by addressing the question whether the relation among distances is carried over from one space to the other. Search processes which do(More)
We present an architecture to generate behavior for an anthropomorphic robot. The goal is to equip the robot with the capacity to interact with a human. Motivated by the research on biological systems, our basic assumption is that the behavior to perform determines the external and internal structure of the behaving system. We describe the anthropomorphic(More)
