    Taguchi Methods (and other orthogonal arrays) may be used to train small Artificial Neural Networks very quickly in a variety of tasks. These include, importantly, Control Systems. Previous experimental work has shown that ...
  • Using evolutionary artificial neural networks to design hierarchical animat nervous systems. 

    McMinn, David (The Robert Gordon University School of Engineering, 2001-12)
    The research presented in this thesis examines the area of control systems for robots or animats (animal-like robots). Existing systems have problems in that they require a great deal of manual design or are limited to ...
  • Using orthogonal arrays to train artificial neural networks. 

    Viswanathan, Alagappan (The Robert Gordon University School of Engineering, 2005-10)
    The thesis outlines the use of Orthogonal Arrays for the training of Artificial Neural Networks. Such arrays are popularly used in system optimisation and are known as Taguchi Methods. The chief advantage of the method is ...
  • Vision systems for a mobile robot based on line detection using the Hough Transform and artificial neural networks. 

    Damaryam, Gideon Kanji (The Robert Gordon University School of Engineering, 2008-11)
    This project contributes to the problem of mobile robot self-navigation within a rectilinear framework based on visual data. It proposes a number of vision systems based on detection of straight lines in images captured ...
