Title: Robust Active Noise Control based on Affine-Projection-Like Maximum Correntropy Criteria
Abstract: Impulse noise (IN) can seriously degrade the performance of conventional active noise control (ANC) algorithms. Here, we present a novel feedforward ANC algorithm based on an information-theoretic learning framework with the data-reuse scheme of affine-projection-based algorithms. Inspired by the maximum correntropy criterion (MCC), the proposed algorithm is referred to as the modified filtered-x affine-projection-like MCC (MFxAPLMCC). Furthermore, we developed an objective function to maximize the correntropy between the system’s desired vectors and the secondary path’s output vectors to enhance robustness. Moreover, linear approximation reduces computational complexity, and the optimal step size is derived mathematically to accelerate convergence and increase the noise reduction ratio. The MFxAPLMCC algorithm was thoroughly evaluated in terms of stability and computational complexity; numerical simulations were used to confirm the effectiveness in terms of average noise reduction. The efficiency of our method was verified using three types of input: (1) symmetric alpha-stable (S α S) IN, (2) a mixture of sinusoidal and IN, and (3) in-vehicle engine acceleration noise. We also verified the tracking capability of the adaptive algorithm for a case in which the primary path changes abruptly. Furthermore, the real measured acoustic path for ANC in-ear headphone development was used to validate the proposed method in real environments. The proposed algorithm significantly outperformed comparative ANC algorithms in convergence rate and noise reduction ratio. We also confirmed that the theoretical bound for stable step size coincides with the numerical results. The parameter sensitivity of the MFxAPLMCC was analyzed as well.

Title: Autonomous welding robots for steel structures on construction sites.
Abstract: Currently, the steel welding operation in construction sites is a multi-layer and multi-pass welding process for medium-thick plates, which has problems such as complicated robot arrangement, low welding efficiency, unstable welding quality, and poor welding environment. Therefore, this report introduces an intelligent welding robot system and related technologies for multi-layered and multi-pass welding of medium-thick plates based on line-structure optical sensors for the urgent need of intelligent welding robots at construction sites. The welding system can intelligently realize automatic inspection and welding on site, equipped with vision sensors, welding tools, and multi-degree-of-freedom mechanisms. The developed intelligent welding robot is lightweight, flexible, and adaptable and can be operated by only two workers in a short time.

Title: Multi-sensor information fusion for night driving vehicle detection
Abstract: The ability to effectively detect vehicles and obtain their comprehensive information through sensors to achieve early warning of a collision and intelligent long-range light exposure are the basic prerequisites for safe night driving. However, sensors have their own performance characteristics, and a single type of sensor cannot fully perceive the environment. Therefore, a night driving vehicle-detection system based on information fusion is proposed, which mainly includes millimeter-wave radar and vision system. Correlation algorithms are used to correlate the detection results of individual sensors, providing comprehensive and reliable information including relative position and speed, category, and far light shield angle, laying a solid foundation for night driving safety.
