H. Chenarani; M.M. Fateh

Articles in Press, Corrected Proof, Available Online from 01 November 2019

Abstract
  This paper presents a robust passivity-based voltage controller (PBVC) for robot manipulators with n degree of freedom in the presence of model uncertainties and external disturbance. The suggested controller inherits both advantages of the passivity-based control (PBC) scheme and voltage control strategy ...  Read More

2. Finite-Time Consensus Control of Euler-Lagrange Multi-agent Systems in the Presence of Stochastic Disturbances and Actuator Faults

M. Siavash; V. Majd; M. Tahmasebi

Articles in Press, Corrected Proof, Available Online from 01 November 2019

Abstract
  This article discusses a finite-time fault-tolerant consensus control for stochastic Euler-Lagrange multi-agent systems. First, the finite-time consensus controller of Euler-Lagrange multi-agent systems with stochastic disturbances is presented. Then, the proposed controller is extended as a fault-tolerant ...  Read More

3. Experimental Performance of Adaptive Fast Terminal Sliding Mode Control on a Suspended Cable Robot

M. I. Hosseini; M.R. Jafari Harandi; S. A. Khalilpour Seyedi; H. Taghirad

Volume 7, Issue 1 , Winter and Spring 2019, , Pages 57-66

Abstract
  Fast-tracking of reference trajectory and performance improvement in the presence of dynamic and kinematic uncertainties is of paramount importance in all robotic applications. This matter is even more important in the case of cable-driven parallel robots due to the flexibility of the cables. Furthermore, ...  Read More

4. A PFC-based Hybrid Approach for Control of Industrial Heating Furnace

H. Nasiri Soloklo; N. Bigdeli

Volume 7, Issue 1 , Winter and Spring 2019, , Pages 81-92

Abstract
  In this paper, a predictive functional control based on Laguerre functions is designed for control of an industrial heating furnace. The fractional order model (FOM) of the heating furnace is assumed as the plant model. For designing the predictive functional controller (PFC), a reduced integer order ...  Read More

5. Congestion Control Approaches Applied to Wireless Sensor Networks: A Survey

S. Shams Shamsabad Farahani

Volume 6, Issue 2 , Summer and Autumn 2018, , Pages 125-144

Abstract
  Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are a specific category of wireless ad-hoc networks where their performance is highly affected by application, life time, storage capacity, processing power, topology changes, the communication medium and bandwidth. These limitations necessitate an effective data transport ...  Read More
