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: Method for the Kinematic Analysis of the Vehicle Axle Guiding Mechanisms
Abstract: The lecture deals with the presentation of an analytical method for the kinematic analysis of the axle guiding mechanisms that are commonly used to guide the rear axles of commercial and off-road vehicles. The method can be applied / adapted for most types of axle guiding mechanisms (at least those commonly used). Unlike the most existing kinematic analysis methods, which involve the development and solving of nonlinear equation systems, with the subsequent disadvantages, the method proposed here is based on linear systems, which are easy to solve. The computation program was developed by using the programming environment Borland Delphi.

Title of your presentation: A NOVEL DESIGN for AERIAL ROBOTS to ENHANCE FLIGHT PERFORMANCE
Abstract: In this speech, a novel idea for a vertical takeoff and landing aerial robot is proposed to overcome the defects in conventional designs. Here, the coupling between translational and rotational movements that usually end up reducing flight performance and increasing control effort is eliminated by decreasing the number of main rotors and adding extra small ducted fans in an innovative scheme. The robot, named TubeDuct, can reach any position in space in a favorable horizontal attitude in order to accomplish the predefined mission with less power consumption and better performance. A linear control strategy is also proposed for this vehicle. The results are supported by nonlinear mathematical modeling and simulation, using ANSYS and MATLAB/Simulink.

Title of presentation: Method for comparative assessment of the manufacturing process alternatives
Abstract: The method proposes an innovative approach in the analysis of potentially optimal solutions, based on their rankings. The method is designed to assist the selection of the optimal continuation variant for the manufacturing process, at a certain decision level. The application of the comparative assessment method is done after the causal identification completion, respectively after the adoption of a set of cause-variables describing the effect-variable of interest at the present moment.The comparative assessment of the potential alternatives is made by reffering them to the cases of already performed manufacturing processes. The method is based on the definition of a proximity function, whose form results by modelling a set of previously performed processes and which can be used for evaluating the nearness between the different cases.

Title of presentation: The hidden part of digital twinning in industrial manufacturing architectures
Abstract: Manufacturing smart connected products require a smart connected manufacturing architecture based on IoT power and digital twinning. This "technology stack" provides a gateway for data exchange between the various work points, transport systems, transfer systems, buffers and integrates data from business systems, external sources, and other related products. To summarize smart, connected products require smart, connected manufacturing architectures. Furthermore, smart connected manufacturing architectures require a mixture of IoT, digital twinning, virtual and augmented reality.This lecture is not about digital twinning, virtual and augmented reality as a better reality. At a general level, this lecture is about digital twining and to a certain extent about virtual and augmented reality as tools to improve reality. More specific, this lecture is about a less obvious twining paradigm in manufacturing architectures, based on material flow theory. To start with, the lecture will present fundamentals on some significant topics: digital twining for generic manufacturing or processing architectures; major characteristics of discrete, continuous and hybrid material flow; mathematical and virtual modelling; material flow simulating algorithms used as major digital twinning applications in different engineering areas. After that, the accent is put on exploring different possibilities to increase productivity and profit in manufacturing architectures using this approach based on virtual modelling and simulation. The proposed main topics are specific to digital twinning in diffused and concentrated manufacturing architectures as virtual modelling of the manufacturing architecture structural elements or primary diagnosis and optimization algorithms for manufacturing architectures in Industry 4.0 context.

Title of presentation: Pounder Theory Applied in the Multi Objectives Optimization of the Robot’s Joints Accelerations with the Virtual LabVIEW Instrumentation
Abstract—One of the most important problem to solve in the robots Kinematics and Dynamics is analyze of the joint’s angular and linear accelerations. Because the movements of the robot’s bodies going in the 3D space, the mathematical algorithm must be written in the complex matrix form. The paper show how some cases of the trapezoidal relatives’ velocities characteristics in a joints determine the variation of the acceleration’s vectors in the 3D space. The maximal values of these variations of the angular and linear accelerations influence the variation of the moments and forces. The analyze was made by using the Neutrosophic theory and vitual LabVIEW instrumentation. In a literature are described some methods of the assisted analyze of the acceleration without show the used mathematical model, without one critical analyze of the cases that must be avoid and finally without some conclusions for the researchers. The paper shown all LabVIEW virtual instruments (VI) used for this assisted research. By solving the assisted research of the acceleration will be open the way to the assisted research of the robots’ dynamic behavior, to choose the optimal constructive and functional parameters (dimensions of the bodies, simultaneously, successive or complex configurations of the movements in the robot’s joints, optimal values of the constant relative joint’s velocities, etc.) of the robots to obtain the minimum variation of the forces and moments. The method that was shown in the paper solves one small part of the complex problems of the robot’s kinematics and dynamics.

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.
