  • Autonomous robot for mapping using ultrasonic sensors

    Robot mapping consists of using a robotic system to create a cartographic representation, or map, of an environment. The mapped environment may have different shapes, sizes, inclination, obstacles, it may be static or dynamic, and it might be previously known or not by the robot. This heterogeneity makes the mapping task a challenging one, but its outcomes are particularly useful. With a map, actions such as rescue, security, cleaning, and construction can be meticulously planned and executed, boosting the overall efficiency and accuracy of the task. The autonomous robot described in this paper is capable of autonomously gathering data of a previously unknown environment. Since it is autonomous, the robot does not need human input in its operation and uses wireless technology (Bluetooth) to communicate with a computing core while moving freely. The computer core uses this data to create a 2-D graphical map of the environment. The external state of the robot is perceived using ultrasonic sensors. Additionally, to accurately keep track of its position, the mapping robot uses a gyroscope sensor and a rotary encoder.

  • Design and realization of a novel obstacle avoidance algorithm for intelligent wheelchair bed using ultrasonic sensors

    Intelligent Wheelchair Bed (IWB) is an important direction. And it is also one of the most active research direction in the robot field. In this work, the obstacle avoidance algorithm based on the Artificial Potential Field (APF) using ultrasonic sensors is proposed and realized in order to achieve the real-time and continuing obstacle avoidance for the IWB. The IWB can keep on detecting the environment with eleven ultrasonic sensors. The relative coordinates obtained by ultrasonic sensors are used to describe the position of obstacles. The APF is introduced to compute the repulsive speed and determine the next direction of motion for the IWB according to the relative coordinates. The proposed method can reduce the dependence of the IWB on environments, and thus, improve the ability to avoid obstacles in the unknown environment. We realized the proposed method using the IWB in the indoor environment. Experimental results show that the proposed method is effective and efficient.

  • A robot controlled 3D mapping and communication system using ultrasonic sensors

    This paper presents a secure three-dimensional mapping technique using ultrasonic sensor and storage of the positional information in a local server such that only an authorized person can access it through the web. The main motivation behind this work is to address the problem of remote terrain mapping of places that are inaccessible to humans. The proposed solution can be used to investigate pipelines and explore riverbeds. It can also be used by the country's security forces to detect intruders and for probing for signs of life in case of natural disasters. The ultrasonic sensor measures the physical parameters of the location, which is used to make a 3D map of the area. This data is sent via a wireless channel to a local server for storage and protection. The idea is implemented in hardware and experimental results are presented.

  • A detection method using ultrasonic sensors for avoiding a wall collision of Quadrotors

    Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) can be applied as an inspection method for infrastructures such as tunnels, bridges, etc. In particular, UAVs being capable of vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) are suitable for photographing inspection sites using cameras, because it need not use a runway and can hover. Among such VTOL type UAVs, those having four rotors are called Quadrotors. When using a Quadrotor for infrastructure inspection, it needs to approach the inspection object in order to photograph the inspection site using the camera. However, due to the influence by wind, it is predicted that the Quadrotor will collide with the inspection object. When the airframe comes into contact with the inspection object, there are problems that the camera image, which is provided a camera mounted on the airframe, is distorted, and the airframe and the inspection objects are damaged. Thus, it is necessary for the inspection Quadrotor to avoid a contact with the inspection object. Therefore, the present research is a wall surface detection method using ultrasonic sensors, so as to realize collision avoidance between walls or piers and the camera mounted Quadrotor. In this paper, we report a wall surface detection method, wall surface detection experiments using the proposed ultrasonic sensors and their results.

  • Sensitivity of piezoelectric MEMS ultrasonic sensors using sol-gel PZT films prepared through various pyrolysis temperatures

    Sensitivity of piezoelectric ultrasonic microsensors was investigated with sol-gel derived piezoelectric lead-zirconate-titanate (PZT) films under various pyrolysis temperatures. The sensors were fabricated on thin diaphragm structures, whose buckling deflection strongly affects the sensitivity and is controlled through stress of the PZT film. The pyrolysis temperature in the sol-gel process was varied in the range from 250°C to 400°C, and the prepared PZT films on 2-inch wafers were evaluated in crystalline orientation and the stress. The sensor structures were then fabricated on the wafers, and the buckling deflection and the sensitivity of the sensors were evaluated. The stress of the films decreased with increasing the pyrolysis temperature. The preferred crystalline orientation switched from (111) to (100) between the pyrolysis temperatures below and at 400°C. The sensors with the 400°C-pyrolyzed PZT showed much larger buckling deflection and much higher sensitivity than those with PZT pyrolyzed at the lower temperatures.

  • Single-Plane Dual-Modality Tomography for Multiphase Flow Imaging by Integrating Electrical Capacitance and Ultrasonic Sensors

    This paper presents an experimental study of a single-plane dual-modality tomography (DMT) system integrating electrical capacitance tomography (ECT) and ultrasonic tomography (UT) for water-oil-gas three-phase flow imaging. The soft-field (ECT) and hard-field (UT) systems measure different physical parameters, making them both a fine combination in complementing each system's limitations. The DMT system consists of 16 units of customized ECT sensors and 16 units of UT transducers, which are composited on a single-plane arrangement to perform concurrent measurement. A finite-element method is used to model and study its feasibility and performance before engaging with the actual hardware. The DMT system is carried out on a vertical test column and horizontal stratified flow to obtain sensor data from each modality by inspection of separate tomographic image using linear back-projection (LBP) image reconstruction algorithm and convolution back projection with Gaussian filtering (CBPF). A fuzzy logic pixel fusion method is used for image fusion process. To evaluate the reconstructed images, the mean structural similarity index (MSSIM) method and the mutual information method (MF) are employed on both the LBP and CBPF image results. The analysis and assessments proved that the CBPF method has successfully improvised the image results and thus has better MSSIM rating and MF over the LBP method with an enhancement up to 12.55% and 8.92%, respectively.

  • Application of focused ultrasonic sensors for suspension measurement of solid-liquid two-phase flow

    Suspended sediment is distributed in rivers of different depths, the content of which is a significant parameter for dynamics of river sediment movement, water conservancy projects, channel regulation, and even for oceanic ecosystems, oil production. A pair of new focused ultrasonic sensors using PZT as the arrays are proposed in this paper, with advantages of small scattering loss and high energy, and measurement system based on the focused ultrasonic sensors and ultrasonic attenuation theory is built to predict the suspended sediment concentration. Three groups of sand samples with different particle sizes are obtained by screening method, followed by a series of experiments on water-sediment mixture of different concentrations. The echo signals from the experiments are processed by tools of wavelet-based de-noising and FFT method, resulting in clear and smooth frequency spectrums. The attenuation coefficient is obtained by analyzing the amplitude changes. Combined with the results of the weighing method, the relationship between concentration and attenuation coefficient under different particle sizes is achieved and the error analysis is carried out. The results show that the proposed sensors and model can provide effective method for the measurement of suspended sediment parameters.

  • Effect of external factors on accuracy of distance measurement using ultrasonic sensors

    Ultrasonic sensors (US) are widely used for detecting objects in different application areas such as parking sensors in automobiles, assisting in UAV navigation etc. In our current work, we use US for detecting obstacles in the local navigation system for the visually impaired. This navigation system detects obstacles in the path of the user, measures the distance of the obstacle from the user and alerts the user about his distance from the obstacle. Safety of the user is a very important aspect when it comes to detection of obstacles in such application areas. In our current paper, keeping the safety of the user in mind we have tested and reported the effect of external factors on the accuracy of distance measurement system using US. The goal state of the paper at hand is to define a starting point for designing the technical set up of the obstacle detection model for developing the navigational assistance system for the visually impaired. The distance measured using the US sensor is compared to the actual distance of the object from the sensor to determine the measured Distance Error (DE) under different experimental conditions.

  • Motion planning of a bipedal walking robot with leg-mounted ultrasonic sensors — An experimental study

    This paper presents motion planning of a biped robot using leg-mounted ultrasonic sensors. An inverted pendulum model was used for modeling and simulation of kinematics. The experiments were conducted using a biped prototype. Each leg of the biped consists of four active joints; two for the hip joint, and one each for the knee and ankle joints. Overall, eight joints are controlled to execute biped locomotion. We used PID controller for damping out initial oscillations and stabilize the initial motion while starting from rest, and a PD controller for joint controls to execute motion planning. Pattern generation schemes for single & double support phases and swing phase were used for walking. In addition to stability, and balance, the primary objective is to simulate and conduct experiments to measure the performance of the biped in achieving two basic locomotions: walking and turning. Two path planning problems were attempted: (i) walking in a straight line and (ii) in a zigzag path. The error between the actual and desired path is used as a performance metric. The biped could achieve the desired motions with reasonable accuracy without tip-off or collide on the fences.
