(Micro) Electro-mechnisms for robotics and extremely work spaces (enviroments).
(Mikro) Elektro-Mechanizmy pre robotiku a extrémne pracovné prostredia.
Annotation: The project elaborates methods and solves tools for design, modeling and simulation of (micro) electro-mechanical devices, mainly sensors of mechanical values and actuators for specific using in robotics and in extremely work spaces. The solution is composed from the mutual synergy of mechanical parts properties – deformation elements, electronics for signal processing and transmission, EMC and methods for data evaluation. The project theoretically and methodically elaborates following objectives:- Analysis, modeling and simulation of compliant mechanical structures properties suitable for sensors and actuators solving.- Optimal solving of mechanisms for multi-component force / torque sensor and for actuators (for instance as mechanical amplifier).- Research of methods for signal transmission and processing, calibration for micro-robotic applications.

Mechatronic vision system
Mechatronický vizuálny systém
Annotation: A mechatronic vision system for automatic perception and monitoring of static and moving objects is proposed. The system consists of several relatively independent subsystems cooperating in order to achieve the common goal to recognize the existence and the motion of a relatively small object from the background, to report it‘s position, velocity and acceleration, to predict the motion and to support tracking of the moving object. The combination of an automatic recognition subsystem with an automatic object motion prediction and camera orientation control facilitates the ability of the whole system to work autonomously in real time. The system will be designed in a modular way to enable simple adaptation to several static and mobile cameras mechanically oriented in space by the two degrees of freedom. The open architecture of the system allows group management integration, day and night image processing, and various geometric computation.

MEMS structures based on load cell
MEMS štruktúry na báze poddajných mechanizmov
Annotation: The project is focused on the analysis, synthesis and design of electromechanical sensors based on MEMS with wireless transmission of information about the sensed phenomena. Solution of the project will focus on exploring appropriate topology structures especially in relation to the proposal required parameters MEMS sensors. Comprehensive proposal includes a parallel proposal to both the mechanical and electrical parts of the sensor. When mechanical design emphasis will be placed on analysis modeling and linearisation characteristics of MEMS structures. The electric field of the settlement project focuses on analyzing the electromagnetic deja suitable for the transmission of information and supplement sensor electrical elements as to avoid compromising the required mechanical properties. The electric field due consideration to the topology of MEMS mechanical structures with its direct use for applying electrical elements.

Computer kit for development, modeling, simulation and animation of mechatronic systems
Počítačová stavebnica pre vývoj, modelovanie, simuláciu a animáciu mechatronických systémov
Annotation: The aim of the project is to propose and create the effective tools for the computer synthesis of the real-time mechatronic control systems. Realization of the programming kit for the static and mobile mechanisms enables to model the objects of control, to simulate control algorithms and, moreover, the kit will offer the platform for the development of the true control system for the real objects. The goal of the project is to work out the proposition methodology of the new mechatronic control systems, to offer an effective tool for modeling of the static and the mobile objects of control and to create an environment for the control algorithms simulation with the aim of its step by step verification. The kit should provide the new control systems development and realization with the true objects of control as well as with the simulated ones for training or educational purposes. The step by step implementation of the new control systems will be possible simply by replacing the simulated objects by the real ones.

CSG Modelling is part of almost all CAD-systems for the modelling of solid state matter. Numerous theoretical investigations and implementations have been carried out. Besides its advantages CGS models need still to be modified into envelope representations for many applications. Parametrizing and real time capabilities are getting lost by this process.
European links: The project will run in strict conjunction with CP93-9554 DODECAS
The Modelling will be made capable of real time by focussing on a subset of CSG Models. Generic storage in databases will be established by using appropriate canonization of representations. Deductive retrieval of variants will be eased substantially.
Title of the task solved by colective from our Institute: Fast matching algorithm for protein graphs
