     View Summary

    Cyber-Physical System (CPS) applications including human-robot interaction call for automated reasoning for rational decision-making. In the latter context, typically, audio-visual signals are employed. This work considers brain signals for emotion recognition towards an effective human-robot interaction. An ElectroEncephaloGraphy (EEG) signal here is represented by an Intervals’ Number (IN). An IN-based, optimizable parametric k Nearest Neighbor (kNN) classifier scheme for decision-making by fuzzy lattice reasoning (FLR) is proposed, where the conventional distance between two points is replaced by a fuzzy order function (σ) for reasoning-by-analogy. A main advantage of the employment of INs is that no ad hoc feature extraction is required since an IN may represent all-order data statistics, the latter are the features considered implicitly. Four different fuzzy order functions are employed in this work. Experimental results demonstrate comparably the good performance of the proposed techniques.

  • An Implementation of Linear Temporal Logic for Driving Safety Suitable for the Concept of Local Dynamic Map

    Kumar A., Wagatsuma H.

    2021 IEEE/SICE International Symposium on System Integration, SII 2021      708 - 709   2021.01  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    Safely driving on the road is a highly complicated information process for autonomous driving systems, which requires knowledge in the form of the hierarchical structure to bind them together. According to the past works on Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS), the concept of Local Dynamic Map (LDM) is one of the critical technologies. It can coordinate environmental information with different time scales to update by mapping onto a consistent geometric structure in a hierarchy. A possible representation of the LDM concept can be associated with a relational database or semantic web technology such as Resource Description Framework (RDF) and Web Ontology Language (OWL). However, moving objects on the road can take infinitely many states. In this study, we propose an integration with Linear Temporal Logic (LTL) to represent events with potential risks to express them on LDM. In the computer experiment, risky situations were examined by using LDM update rules with LTL at turning and roundabout.
