Odor source localization is a topic that continues to attract research attention, and in the past decade, mobile robots have been used to localize odor source. A robot which is capable of odor plume tracing can be employed in many applications, such as the detection of toxic gas, fire at its initial stage and unexploded bombs. Many plume-tracing robots were(More)
Plume-tracing mobile robots have the potential to detect emissions caused by dangerous sources, such as early stage fire, toxic gas and explosives, without endangering human life during the detection and source localization process. So far, most researchers have focused on odour source localization using a single mobile robot; however, using a single robot(More)
This study proposes a "pure skill-based" fuzzy logic control (FLC) approach to reverse a car-like mobile robot(CLMR) into an empty parking bay automatically. The FLC approach was expressed in the form of fuzzy rules based on the knowledge of skilled human drivers. Range measurements were provided to help the CLMR avoid collisions during the parking.(More)
Cloud computing is a term referring to the latest new computing paradigm based on the Internet where a program or application runs on a connected server or servers rather than on a local computing device. Software as a Service (SaaS) is one of the most important computing services in cloud computing. The advantages of SaaS products are well recognized(More)
Using plume-tracing mobile robots has the potential to detect emissions caused by dangerous sources such as early stage fire, toxic gas and explosives, without endangering human life during the detection and source localization process. Due to the remarkable advantageous of using multiple robots, a number of robots was introduced to locate an odor source in(More)
The traditional engineering education in China concentrates on the theory study, and the educational pattern is out-dated compared to the development of world class engineering education. Undergraduate students were forced to sit tight in a classroom and treated as a subordinate role in the educational activities. After four years solid study, students even(More)
