Title: Modeling and Optimization Methods Research of Permanent magnet eddy-current Coupler

 

Abstract: Permanent magnet eddy current coupler is a new type of speed regulation and transmission device that can realize non-contact energy transfer between motor and load. It provides new possibilities for improving equipment efficiency and reducing energy consumption. Taking the disc-type permanent magnet eddy current coupler as the research object, the distribution of the air gap magnetic field intensity between the conductor disc rotor and the permanent magnet disc rotor and the distribution law of the eddy current density in the conductor disc were deeply studied. Accurate two-dimensional and three-dimensional analytical models of the disc-type permanent magnet eddy current coupler were constructed by different methods, and multiple key performance indicators were systematically calculated and analyzed. A multi-objective particle swarm algorithm based on an improved competition mechanism was proposed to optimize its structural parameters and performance indicators. The accuracy of the constructed model and the effectiveness of the optimization algorithm were verified through three-dimensional finite element simulation. These research works help to more accurately predict the performance of permanent magnet eddy current couplers and provide theoretical guidance for their optimal design.

Human visual perception is the core technology for the construction of medical embodied intelligence. It covers most medical activity scenarios such as abnormal/stereotyped behaviors, pointing behaviors, and social behavior training of patients. It is the most intuitive and cutting-edge method. Focusing on "Research on human visual perception and embodied intelligence construction under the coupling of complex medical factors", the key principles and methods of constructing human kinematic structure representation and modeling the correlation representation of world space elements are introduced.

Title: Research on active noise control system and algorithm

 

Abstract: Active noise control refers to the artificial generation of a series of secondary noises under the action of certain electroacoustic devices. The amplitude and frequency of this series of secondary noise sound waves are the same as those of the primary noise sound waves, but the phase is opposite. The primary and secondary noises interfere with each other in the anechoic area to achieve noise reduction. This report mainly studies active noise control systems and algorithms. First, for the case where noise signals are separated from useful signals, a single-channel feedforward active noise control system is designed. For the case where the information of noise signals is unavailable, an active noise control system based on wavelet transform is designed. Then, for the above two systems, several new adaptive filtering algorithms and nonlinear secondary sound channel identification algorithms are proposed, which can effectively improve the signal-to-noise ratio and improve system performance. Finally, an active noise control system simulation platform is designed to better simplify the simulation operation process and facilitate the analysis of the impact of algorithms on system performance.

Title: Research and exploration on artificial intelligence risk governance in the era of big models

 

Abstract: As AI systems gradually replace humans in making autonomous decisions in various fields, the importance of data and algorithms becomes increasingly prominent. Lack of security guarantees for analysis and judgment of signal processing and intelligent computing may lead to serious decision-making errors, and may even cause personal injury and social property losses. Therefore, AI security has become a focus of national infrastructure construction and has been included in the National Security Strategy Outline. In addition to classic decision-making AI, such as ChatGPT and MidJourney, the development of generative AI represented by large language models has also received widespread attention recently. These new technical forms and application scenarios bring huge business potential and opportunities, but also bring a series of new challenges, such as privacy leakage, recognition bias, prejudice and discrimination, and compliance and copyright issues.
This report will share how to make full use of the development of new technologies to ensure the security and trustworthiness of the AI ​​industry. We will share the research progress in the field of security for deep learning models and the rapidly developing large models, as well as the new opportunities it brings to scientific research and industry.

Title: Foresight Integration: Enhancing AGVs with Vision Systems and Machine Perception

 

Abstract: Service robots represent a transformative application of robotics that has had a profound impact on human life, spanning fields from healthcare to industry. These robots act as lifesavers and support systems, relieving humans from arduous tasks and repetitive work that may affect the accuracy of work execution. According to ISO 8373:2012, service robots include two main types: personal service robots (designed for use outside manufacturing) and professional service robots (used for non-commercial and commercial purposes). Operating on a spectrum from semi-autonomous to fully autonomous, these robots are increasingly being accepted as human assistants in a variety of applications and professions. Industries are increasingly integrating service robots into their production lines, marking a key shift in the context of the Industrial Revolution. The first revolution brought mechanization, followed by the second revolution powered by electricity. However, Industry 4.0 interweaves digital and Internet technologies, driving further innovation and development in the technology field. In this discussion, the focus is narrowed to AGVs (Automated Guided Vehicles) and MIRs (Mobile Industrial Robots) as exemplary service robots. The discussion delves into the modeling steps and simulation processes involved in its creation. Additionally, it uses various algorithms to scrutinize the performance of the designed AGV. This analysis is intended to provide guidance to researchers, providing insights and practical implementations for various control systems in modeled systems.
