Title of presentation: Ultrasonic motor
The deep sea of the 4,000m grade is a treasure house of resources. However, there are not good map about that. So, the authors have developed deep-sea drone with functions to make world marine bottom of the sea map of the 10,000m grades from 4,000m. The shape durable in the deep sea is only a sphere. The authors have produced the deep sea drone to explore bottom of the sea and resources by use of spherical ultrasonic motors with the ball rotor containing various sensors such as cameras, flow sensors and so on. The authors have succeeded in driving it in underwater.

Title of presentation: MULTI-OBJECTIVE OPTIMIZATION OF A MECHATRONIC SOLAR TRACKING MECHANISM
Abstract:In this work, the multi-objective optimization of a dual-axis solar tracker is carried out by using a virtual prototyping software platform that integrates CAD (Computer Aided Design) – CATIA, MBS (Multi-Body Systems) – ADAMS and DFC (Design for Control) – EASY5 computer aided engineering programs. The solar tracking mechanism performs the bi-axial orientation of a PV panel, with the purpose to increase of the amount of incident solar radiation captured by the conversion system, thus improving its energy output. The optimization study aims to determine the optimal arrangement of the linear actuators that control the two degrees of freedom of the system (i.e. the diurnal and elevation movements of the PV panel) and the optimal tuning of their control elements (controllers), so that to minimize the energy consumption for performing the tracking and the tracking errors (relative to the imposed orientation program), while complying with the functional and constructive requirements/constraints coming from the type of actuator used in the application (which is a real/existing one). The tracking mechanism is approached/designed in mechatronic concept (i.e. concurrent engineering), by combining the mechanical and control subsystems at the virtual prototype level.

Title of your presentation: Adaptive Radial Basis Function Neural Network Controller for Autonomous Multirotors
Abstract:Limits in the real-time computation of micro-processors on the one hand and high-level controllers that need precise computation in addition to implementation and compiling issues, on the other hand, have caused a great gap between control science and experiments. In this work, an adaptive RBF neural network controller is proposed to control the position and attitude of an autonomous multirotor. The controller is combined with an EKF observer and simulated in real-time flight conditions. In order to check the capabilities ofthe system, the proposed structure has been successfully applied to a quadrotor and a hexarotor using three data types for getting similar real-time flight results. Based on the results, the proposed structure has accomplished two separate missions with different scenarios, though there exists some error, especially in position estimations which are caused by step-wise characteristics of the desired path.

Title of presentation:Architecture of Next Generation Manufacturing System
Abstract: On one hand, nowadays, the global energy network can generate and transmit, between any two points belonging to it, high quantity of energy. During recent years, a global information network, able to process, store, and transmit huge amounts of information, has been developed as well. These networks entirely cover the industrial space, already giving the opportunity to make permanently available, in any of its points, at any time, as much as needed, both energy and information. On the other hand, the mass customization trend has led to the pronounced increase of “manufacturing to order” (MTO) production, taking place in a higher and higher number of small & medium enterprises. At this level, a given manufacturing system cannot be quickly and appropriately configured to a given product, due to production high variability in range. As consequence, the manufacturing system is, quite always, more or less unadjusted to the manufactured product, its performance being significantly affected. Starting from here, the challenge is to make a conceptual rebuilding of the manufacturing system, aiming to increase its degree of appropriateness to products, by taking advantage from the opportunities brought by the existence of global energy & information networks. This paper approach is to see the manufacturing system as modular cyber physical system (CPS), composed by modules of general use. System configuration changes according to the manufactured product requirements. The architecture of this configurable cyber physical system (meaning its components, functions and operating mode) is presented while its advantages, inconvenients and limitations are also analysed.

Title of prezentation: Optimizing virtual enterprises manufacturing using digital twinning
Abstract: Because various manufacturing architectures involved in the product development are often geographically and temporally distributed there is a high level of integrated simulation involved in the actual design optimization of industry 4.0 manufacturing. It is then possible to say that enterprises give rise to a particular type of virtual enterprise manufacturing simulation, in which each company maintains excellent flexibility and modular independence. This represents a vision of next-generation engineering working environments and describes a core information technology on which future systems can be built. Cooperative processes are not the automatic results of implementing collaborative, real-time communication technologies, but the result of a carefully designed and systematically maintained virtual prototype of a manufacturing network. The lecture will present fundamentals on an important topic: the digital twin of a collaborative network based on integrated material flow simulation. This general virtual model for manufacturing architectures networks, geographically dispersed, is developed to optimize material flow between various actors in the Virtual Enterprise paradigm. In an Industry 4.0 manufacturing network, there needs to be an integrated simulation model supporting distributed product development. After that, the accent is put on designing an outsourcing shared simulation service for SMEs in a networking paradigm. The solution we have chosen was to provide a series of services generated by the network's collaborative digital twin based on an integrated simulation model. An effective service sharing was designed to support the SMEs in delivering the information necessary to operate the strategic and tactical decisions in implementing industry 4.0 manufacturing in a collaborative network. The service makes available the shared use of Industry 4.0 simulation models, tools and know-how, not economically affordable for a single enterprise, allowing to reach a high level of competitiveness at low cost.

Title of presentation: Active Rehabilitation Training Control Strategy of Lower Limb Rehabilitation Robots (the LLR-Ro) through the dynamic modeling of human-machine coordination and detect the patient leg motion intention
Abstract. A new active rehabilitation training based on static torque sensors, applicable to effective sitting/lying lower limb rehabilitation robot (the LLR-Ro ) in order to improve the patient’s training initiative and accelerate the rehabilitation process are investigated. The active Rehabilitation Training Control Strategy and the motion intention acquisition flow diagram of the patient's lower limb demonstrated, by simulation experiments, the correctness of the mechanism leg dynamics equation. The calibration experiment of the joint torque sensors provides the hardware support for active rehabilitation training and the consecutive variation of the torque sensors to obtain high performance on the patient's lower limb motion intention. The research has important scientific significance and theoretical value in improving and developing the sitting/lying lower limb rehabilitation robot theory. Based on the variation of torque sensors installed on the mechanism leg joint axis, LLR-Ro could detect the patient leg motion intention and realize the active rehabilitation training to replace traditional robot-leading training.

Title of presentation: Software Platform for the Assisted Research of the Kinematics and Dynamics of Industrial Robots
Abstract— The paper presents a software platform made with LabVIEWTM for the assisted research of the kinematic and dynamic behavior of industrial robots. The platform comprises a series of virtual instrumentation LabVIEWTM programs (subVI-s) with: the input data modules in the form of several clusters with the parameters of the trapezoidal velocity characteristics of each joint, the axes of movement and the type of each joints, the dimensions of each body, the graph associated to the robot’s structure, the incidence matrices bodies - joints and joints- bodies, as well as the control buttons for movement up or down with or without object in the end- effecter, some modules with 2D characteristics of positions, velocities, accelerations, forces and moments in each joints and also the 3D characteristics of them. The research of the current stage shows that such a complex platform like this was not realized, the current research being limited to the animation of motion trajectories, determining the characteristics of positions, velocities, accelerations, forces and moments without the possibility of changing all motion parameters and robot’sdimensions and without show how these parameters change the behavior. The paper studies the case of an articulated arm type robot, but the platform can be used for any type of robot with four degrees of freedom (DOF).

Title of presentation: Combined Rocket Engine Solution for the Orbital Stage of SPARTACUS launcher.
Abstract: ADDA develops, since 2008, the low cost, proprietary orbital rocket launcher, designed to transfer part of an existing military weapon, planned for retirement, into a cost efficient, safe, and responsive space vehicle. Initially named as the NERVA program, ADDA has changed its name into SPARTACUS nano-launcher program, to avoid the unpleasant confusion with the American homonymous space project, based on the publicly undesired atomic propulsion system. On the contrary, the SPARTACUS three stage orbital rocket will be created from point modification of three SA2 soil-to-air anti-aircraft obsolete missiles, acquired with no cost and basically ecological. The modification is evaluated to build into a $50.000 total cost per launch of SPARTACUS, launch and tracking operations included. One of the main contributions of the ADDA team to the SPARTACUS system is the proprietary third stage, able to add approx. 4000 m/s in horizontal velocity to the ADDASAT 2 kg payload at orbital altitude and inject it into a low Earth circular orbit of 100 miles above sea level, at 45° inclination to the equator. This stage is developed from the ORVEAL combined rocket engine (CRE), presently on the test stand, and presents a cheap and highly efficient solution, with minimal number of mechanical parts in its construction. It includes a new feed principle for the liquid oxidizer and is presented to show how it solves, with no moving parts, the proper delivery of the liquid, at constant flow rate, into the combustion afterburner in a very elegant manner. The new CRE exploits in a new way the old expertise of the Romanian industry of double-base rocket propellants, with a high potential of economic profit. This is the first international presentation of the ORVEAL and SPARTACUS development.

Title of presentation: H-infinity distributed controller design for multi-agent systems
Abstract. The paper presents a design methodology of a distributed H-infinity controller for multi-agent systems with identical agents. It is proved that the distributed controller depends both on the solutions of the local H-infinity problem and on the sparsity of the Laplacian and the topology of the associated graph. The theoretical results and proposed procedures are illustrated by an application of flight formation with different geometries.
